Unplugged, a playlist by subblicious on Spotify

We have been quiet for the last couple of weeks. Weird times where we had to postpone our Unplugged sessions. We hope to be back soon.

Because we want to make sure you will be able to enjoy some music we started a Spotify playlist. We will try to add as many artists of Unplugged to the list.

If you cannot find your song on our list sent us a link so we can add it. If you need help to get your music on Spotify just sent us a PM and we will make it happen.

A playlist featuring Narda, Rachman, Len&Mar, and others

Programma - Gluren bij de Buren Leiden

No plans for Sunday? You can visit one of the many places during an event called Gluren bij de Buren Leiden 2020. All over town, there will be performances. The idea is you show up at the location at the time in the program. Watch the show and leave a tip before you move to the next show.

check the program:

Driemaal Hoera Hoera Hoera! Nederland kan zich opmaken voor een nieuwe editie van Gluren bij de Buren in verschillende steden in Nederland.

Mark those calenders for Unplugged Sessions February - Old School - Forgotten Valentine. We got some heartbreakers ready to restore your faith in love or sing about their worst experiences. The lineup will be: Len&Mar, Stefan, Wah Ananda, Mare, Kwint, Ceriel and Stan. Another true acoustic edition!

19/01/2020

Yes, we are still around and active. It has just been busy these last couple of weeks. The plan was to have the next session this upcoming Wednesday but we had some trouble finding a good location.

Why? because it's also De Leidse Blues- en Jazzweek and a wide range of new year celebration drinks or "borrel" like the Dutch call them :)

So we decided to be different and have our kickoff of the New Year in February :) Event will be up tomorrow afternoon.

To make sure you will not be bored we will provide you a bunch of nice alternative events in the upcoming days. The first one is the Kroegentocht - De Leidse blues- en jazzweek. Free jazz shows all over town. You walk through the city and pick a bar from the list in the event. Enjoy!

The picture they used looks a little weird but we just call it "art". If you want to see more art check out the Time and space - opening expositie Art House Holland at Old School.

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.

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!

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. :)

Enjoy the summer!
