What Duder said generally about The Netherlands. Most people are hella chill. We stayed in the Singel hotel in Amsterdam last time, canalside and a nice 10 min walk into the busier part. Great place, host very welcoming and proper euromang cheese and meat platter breakfast. I recommend that. We went to a place called Club Meander which had a great selection of music. I think it's a cafe in the day too. Everyone speaks English DO REMEMBER TO WATCH OUT FOR THE BIKES AS THEY TAKE NO PRISONERS AT ALL.Brussels was great too. We went for a city-centre wedding and it was probably the hottest day on record there. I remember eating fresh mussels and garlic bread al fresco, definitely recommend it, although the cafes in the big square were mad dollar, better to eat elsewhere a few streets away for less money and less hovering-watiers-eager-to-churn-the-punters-through.I stay with friends in Paris so can't offer hotel advice, but it's a beautiful city and well worth taking your time to see all the spots. Traffic and parking scarcity makes for slow driving experiences though, so take the metro where you can. Stop regularly for coffee and wine. Learn a bit of French and watch this before you go - and they are trying to stop people peeing in the streets these days too - Whatever next??!!!Satie FTW.Or this:Eric Serra FTW.I am sure there are/were Amsterdam Strutteurs around these parts for that local gem bithnith.
The bigger question then, is what IS acceptable?Does a band have to pay its dues on the Chitlin Circuit or in prison to be legit?Are those roads to "Authentic City" still open?Or should they abandon the necrophilia of real instruments and concentrate on zeitgeist-apex EDM to be more Of-Their-Time-Than-Thou? Because I fucking hate them twats who think they just climbed off a UFO from Planet-fucking-NOW!Bonus Every-cloud...-moment: I think we can all agree that sunglasses can't make a white musician black, regardless of how many times you've seen "The Blues Brothers".
