Win: 2×2 Bidi-Bookings anniversary (Dÿse and more) @ W2 Den Bosch tickets

You can rock on your own, with a beatlesque four or just with two mofo’s. Less is more, you know. Dÿse (on Myspace) is a two-man band, formed in the Spring of 2003 and named after the Dysecatmotel in Amsterdam where they’d first met. It began as a fun, drunken side project for Jari Rebelein and André Dietrich who wanted a new musical challenge and a chance to write songs with no limitations. They did some massive touring the past years, the response to the shows was overwhelming as audiences everywhere were blown away by this unique, energetic and incredibly entertaining duo. Think punk meets hardcore meets powerrock or Lightning Bolt light, as some might say.

You could have seen them at ZXZW 2007, but on May 23rd they’re performing at the 7,5 years anniversary of Bidi-Bookings, the great Tilburg booking agency.

Also performing are Astrosoniq, Gomer Pyle (as seen at Roadburn 2009), The Liszt and Duffhuës.

We’re giving away 2×2 tickets for this event on Saturday May 23rd at W2 Den Bosch!

Win: 3×2 Bonaparte @ Effenaar tickets

Bonaparte (ZXZW 2009) is one of a kind. Calling it weird would not even start to cover this freak show. But when you add words like interesting, spectacle, happy and circus Bonaparte gets a little more tangible. This new superheroes of the indie underground stop in Tilburg on Tuesday, so make sure you do not have to work on Wednesday morning. Because then you will still struggle to shut your amazed eyes, have stomach aches from laughing, and will not be able to get their catchy tunes out of your head.

We give away 3×2 tickets for the concert of Bonaparte on May 24th at Effenaar, Eindhoven!
