Hi Kees,

The Irish band was:
The Ceili

Glad I stumbled upon this! The Ceili will be performing at Mulligans in Amsterdam, August 18th, 19th and 20th. It's only a 4 hour round trip! Nick (the fat mandolin player)

Afternoon, when I drunkenly spoke to you guys last year you told me that Gronigen is a much more rock'n'roll city than Amsterdam, so recommend a venue or two.

For the record:

VERA - highly recommended! club for the rock and punk underground
Het Viadukt - rehearsal rooms and gigs
Simplon
Warhol
De Silo
De Spieghel (jazz)
Cafe Marleen (singer-songwriter)
De Ster
De Benzinebar

If you're organising gigs for yourself, you might also want to try
O'Ceallaigh, it's _the_ Irish/Scottish folk music pub, and cafe Marleen.
