We have noticed something this weekend. We have 957 people liking our page and 1000+ following. Which is crazy and we feel honored. We did 2 awesome shows already this season and will be doing much more before summer.

We don't ask for much but we would love to close off the year with 63 more likes on our page so we reach that 1k. So invite a friend (and bring them to Unplugged Sessions December - Old School - Happy Holidays).

We will prepare some give-away-packages when we reach this magical goal. Thanks and keep listening and making incredible music!

Wow and another wowie. It was such an awesome night yesterday. Great to be back after our summer break. You (the artists, the audience and the location) impressed us so much.

Can we get another huge applause for Wendy, Kevin, Narda - Singer Songwriter, Attic 2 , Tessa Josephina, Mika Jones, Sigourney Martina, Daan and Louise.

A huge thank-you-very-much to Marktsteeg 10 for having us at their beautiful location. Make sure to get a cup of coffee and a delicious lunch or just a nice chat while you watch the new art on the wall.

... and we are blessed with the nicest and most quiet audience ever. We sometimes forget how nice it is to have a group of people who show up to listen to music because you spoiled us. A huge loud cheer and much love to you and we hope to see you back next month.

27/10/2019

Just a couple more days till our October edition. Hope you are just as excited as we are to have: Wendy, Kevin, Narda - Singer Songwriter, Attic 2, Tessa Josephina, Mika Jones, Sigourney, Daan and Louise on our stage.

Two important things:

1. The show will be acoustic so super nice and quiet and we hope you will impress our artists again by being the most awesome audience ever!

2. We have 9! artists so we will start on time kickoff around 20:00 so there sharp!

The venue is called Marktsteeg 10 and we will tell you all about it on Wednesday. During the night there will be an ongoing expo called "The Self" which is really impressive.

See you on Wednesday Unplugged Sessions October | Marktsteeg 10

Unplugged Sessions October | Marktsteeg 10

07/10/2019

We noticed some of you are a little worried about Unplugged. It is already October and we haven't announced a new Unplugged night.

Don't worry we are working hard to fix a special October edition. We just need confirmation. Hopefully before the end of this week.

So get your band together and start working on some new songs :) We will see you soon!

Lipsius Underground

During our night at De Paradijsvogel we had Lipsius Underground on our stage!

"Boy is lost, he is gone,
He can't come home"

One of our first song's Boy Disrupted was inspired by Netflix true crime documentaries and long winters in Northern Europe. Come to one of our future gigs to hear the story behind the song!

You people never stop to amaze us. It was so nice to walk into a packed room at 19:30 Ready to kickoff another awesome night of music at Old School.

It was really a great way to end another season of Unplugged On Tour. We managed to see so many new people and artists on our stages at De Paradijsvogel, Red Carpet Lounge, Qbus Club Leiden, Drijvende Kerstmarkt Leiden, Meneer Jansen and de Waag.

We will be back again in September and hope to see you around. Remember most of the locations are also open during summer and you can even visit them when we are not around. For a coffee, tea or beer. :)
