Ty Segall @ London Calling 21 May Paradiso Amsterdam

It was my first live Ty Segall experience and i had mega expectations about it, just next door was playing Twin Shadow but i was so hyped that i couldn't wait and went to watch Ty's check sound cause Twin Shadow was ok but i needed more.

I heard before all about the noise brutality and hectiness from the San Francisco garage fuzzer shows, even before the beginning the small room from Paradiso was full of excitement that grow while Ty and team warm up with the first accords.

After the lift off signal was like a really fast tsunami that swept everybody that was in the room and it was loud, fun with loads of banging, raw electrifing riffs and explosive vocals, to bad that was so short and the room to freaking warm that i almost wondered if paradiso havent heard about air condiciones before ... moral of the story "Out of This World and the ultimate Garage Rocker".

After the concert i wanted to talk with Ty but the Paradise bouncers didn't let me pass cause i didn't have a press pass but with some luck and persistence a manage to tell Ty about my small time blog and he came for a chat with a lot of fans ... let me tell you super swell and friendly guy and nothing of stardust of vanity, a true garage rocker and after i manage after being a bit of pain to get the band together for a family photo ... my wishes are that soon Ty come back to Amsterdam but for another venue more proper for these type of sound and not the small paradiso room and with some decent bands to open for him as well.

Black Lips and E.T. Explore Me at Trouw Amsterdam 16 May

The best monday in the history of mondays, i was super excited about Black Lips but when i heard my long time favorites the Dutch Haarlem Fuzz-Garage trio ET Explore Me was gonna open the night then something out of the normal was going to happen.

Et Explore Me Haarlem prodigal sons made a savage set, there was distortion everywhere but we are in a basement in a garage music night in a sort of "Clash of Titans" so we couldn't ask for a better atmosphere, Jeroen bass was like a Kalashnikov that was crawling up and down the Trouw, Joost the usual class and the Jeroen the drummer nothing to say except a focking machine.

Black Lips from the first second till the last was pure mayhem, excitement and the antichrist on the loose, the usual tons of body's flying around and happy faces, the guys were treated like "Gods" and they give Trouw a night not to forget, some new tunes from their upcoming album plus the classics, when they played "Bad Kids" trouw went absolute mutters, after the last tune they couldn't escape and their were hugs and smiles and i heard loads of "OH my God i can't believe i touched Jared ", basically was a return to Amsterdam as real heroes.

Albert Watson Photography Exhibition @ Kahmann Gallery Amsterdam

"Next week Thursday, May 20th, Kahmann Gallery presents the exhibition ‘I Observe’, by world famous photographer Albert Watson. A selection of 30 black & white photographs from his series of works, will be shown.

Born in 1942 in Edingburgh, the Scottish native received his degree in graphic design and film before he moved to the United States. Even though he wasn’t trained as a photographer, it was there that he became one and started doing various kinds of assignments.

With an interest in the fabulous, famed and curious, Watson has in the past four decades, managed to swirl these themes up in a peculiar way: film director Alfred Hitchcock holding a 25 pound plucked goose; singer songwriter Mick Jagger portrayed as a leopard; and supermodel Kate Moss portrayed in torn veil, are just a few examples of his oeuvre. His signature is his way of lighting his subjects, which creates a graphic intensity and almost meditative atmosphere.

Watson has done more than 250 covers for Vogue Magazine and over 40 covers for Rolling Stone Magazine. He has won numerous prizes and is named one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time by Photo District News."
