Howe Gelb is playing the Naked Song festival in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on Saturday, June 16th. Beside a 50 minutes long performance a 7pm, Gelb is invited to do a so called In the mix session at 10pm. This session combines a performance and an interview. Two for the price of one, go people! Other acts playing the festival: Tindersticks and Agnes Obel, to name but a few.
Please check this nicely made radio coverage of Emmett Tinley during his stay in Ancienne Belgique, Brussels, last April. This great job is done by Sanne Eeckelers and Emilie Tondeur, both students journalism, who followed Emmett the whole day and edited their hours of material to some great minutes in which Emmett talks and plays in the dressing room and during sound check. Check their website!
Emmett Tinley played three sold-out, full band shows, opening for Dutch band Blaudzun. Standing ovations, what else to wish for? Thanks to everybody who attended the shows in Rotterdam, Ottersum and/or Amsterdam. For those of you who missed it, last chance to see Emmett for a while (in Holland) will be June 7th in Utrecht when world famous actress Carice van Houten presents…Emmett Tinley. Tickets available here.
June 30, Emmett Tinley plays Whelan’s in Dublin, (probably) solo, in support of the Irish release of the album. May 18 is the date for that one.
C’mon Ireland, get those tickets!
As announced earlier, we’ve started our booking agency. In that perspective we love to let you know that Howe Gelb, frontman of Giant Sand, will play four interesting Dutch shows in May and June, with possibly more to be added.
April 19th, Brussels, Ancienne Belgique. Emmett Tinley performed an impressive set. Great listening crowd and an incredible sound. Thanks Brussels, thanks Fink. Btw, if you have the chance to see Fink during their current tour, do so, you will not regret it.
