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: Hotel Tropique @ Canvas
New year, new chances, new opportunities to party! Christmas is finally over and it’s actually getting cold. It seems as if winter is finally starting. However, if you’re anything like me you hate snow. Let me suggest to check out Hotel Tropique in Canvas on Friday. The name already gives it away, tropical vibes are guaranteed. Canvas resident Philou Louzolo is know for what he calls Afrifuturism. His tropical African house music will put a smile on your face, without a doubt. Say bye bye to that winter depression!
Friday: Strange Behaviour @ Closure
Closure is a good place to be on Friday. For three reasons that is. One: Space Dimension Controller is playing. His one line biography on Resident Advisor says it all; “Back through time with a mission of groove.” What a man. Two: Carlos Valdes is playing. His set at LET on the third day of Christmas was pretty damn legendary. Three: Nathan Surreal is playing. This guy is a star on the rise and seems to pop up at more parties by every weekend. Watch this guy.
Saturday: The Rest is Noise @ Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ
First of all, it’s always a good decision to go to a party in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ because the building is so damn impressive. Even more reason to go there this Saturday is because Hieroglyphic Being is performing live. This guy from Chicago has a wild and unpredictable afro-futuristic sound that is hard to put into a box and is hardly called house or techno. He will let us hear his ‘Sun Ra’ sound this weekend. Expect a mix of lo-fi Chicago house, spiritual jazz and hits to new wave and industrial techno. Although you never really know what to expect with this guy.
And then there’s always the option of standing in line for De School.
