A giant concert selfie to start!
Sometime in May, I have forgotten the date now, we decided on a bit of a whim to go to a concert in Antwerp. Personally, I blame Spotify for informing me of it whilst I was listening to the band.
I shy away from questions about my music tastes, just because I always had the feeling it wouldn’t be to the taste of the people around me. I started to share my music taste with Kris about two years ago and much to my enjoyment we’re pretty compatible in this area. I also think he’s growing accustomed to my musical preferences.
We’ve moved away from listening to the local radio to listening to Kerrang! so we actually enjoy the music we have on and it’s always fun to listen to their unsigned show and hear new bands. What can I say, I like my music on the rock side with a healthy sprinkling of metal. Kris likes his with less metal but a bit of an indie kick.
Anything tickling my inner emo child will also be a winner too.
So, the most new-to-us band is a Dutch group, Within Temptation. A hard rock band, with a bit of a gothic influence, that’s well-known in Belgium and the Netherlands. Spotify’s words, not mine.
I thought I’d share some concert photos with you that actually came out not too bad.
The first two are from the supporting band, Delain, who are also a Dutch band and we’re also quite good. Don’t worry, if you are interested, all the songs are in English. The concert on the other hand, not so much.
