Lotsa streaming concerts.

Dutch broadcast station VPRO's website is Holland’s biggest platform for alternative music. Here's a link to a shitload of streaming live concerts and tracks. You'll have to do a bit of cut and paste once there, but it's the easiest way for me to link to the list. For the cut-and-paste-inept, there's a standard interface, but the site's not in english.

So, first band I hear? Threat Signal from Hamilton, Ontario. Small world, hey?

Very nifty.

Hosted on the same site is the luisterpaal (listening station), where you can preview a range of new records. The selection changes on a daily basis and focusses on more alternative stuff.

Freakin' sweet. Streaming some Blackalicious in Rotterdam right now, can't wait to spend the hours and hours it will take to explore the rest of these. Thanks dobbs!!!

Tegan & Sara: "Melancholisch countrypop zusterduo uit Canada."

That pretty much describes them.
