From the outside, Rotterdam might not seem like a hotbed of underground culture and creativity. But the Dutch city has a long history of nurturing mavericks and misfits artists defiantly pleasing no-one but themselves. Lewsberg, a four-piece whose arty, lo-fi college rock rumble has drawn comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Television and The Modern Lovers, fit this mould perfectly – alongside a fierce independent streak. They take their name from writer Robert Loesberg, a cult local author whose work was famously nihilistic and disillusioned.
Doing things in their understated way suits them just fine, and has seen them become one of the most successful groups to emerge from the burgeoning Dutch underground music scene.
Presented by Lysergic Limes, Fantôme and BLG.
This is an 18+ event.
