Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow your options down by weekly suggesting the events where you can meet, dance and drink with Amsterdam’s finest crowds. After all, ‘a hangover ain’t worth the pain if the party is lame’. So here’s where you weekend warriors should go to for next Monday’s hangover.
Friday: Novel @ Canvas
Please let me inform you that Canvas is the place you want to be this Friday. The third chapter of Novel, a night where selectors tell a story through their wide record selection, will be told by Rahaan. This Chicago native has been dropping disco, house and funky beats since the ’80s. It’s save to say he’s a legend and I’m a fan. If you weren’t one yet, have a listen to his Disco Deviance mix and you will be too. Time to boogie!
Friday: Red Light Radio 5YR Anniversary @ Studio 80
I will never let anyone know that I secretly listen to Wild FM (guilty please anyone?) so you’ll believe me when I say that Red Light Radio is my favorite radio station around. Broadcasting right from the Red Light District they have been providing me with amazing music for five years now already. They’re celebrating their birthday at Studio 80 and have invited Gilb’r, Syracuse, San Proper, Adolf Butler, Parrish Smith, Dick el Demasiado, Dollkraut and Future Vintage for the occasion. Who needs cake when you’ve got music?
Friday, Saturday: Weekender @ Radion
The last time I went to a club weekender was when Trouw was still alive. Weekenders are pretty intense and I don’t think they’re worth it unless they’re something special. Radion got their 24-hour permit and celebrated with a weekender and I heard it was off the chain. That made me curious enough to go and check this one out. Haven’t seen the second room yet and it’s supposed to be pretty awesome. The line-up is insane and features Iron Curtis, Red Axes, Arif Malawi & Oceanic, Wendel Sield and Daniel Zuur among others.
Be sure to check out Palmbomen in Studio 80 as well. Somewhere Else in OT301 with Motor City Drum Ensemble is obviously a must go this Sunday. That’s also why it’s sold out, but luckily there’s always TicketSwap.
