Just got these as a present for St Nicolaus from an anonymous person, so I don't know what they are for. Anybody have a clue??

Really happy with the two shows we played this weekend. This is from the one in Zwolle:

Since last Friday, a church in The Hague is organizing a 24/7 church service to provide safety to an Armenian family with children that the government wants to extradite.

Dutch law states that during a church service people cannot be arrested and the government can't do anything.

Clerics from all over the country have come to hold a sermon.

We're going to join the service and perform some music next Wednesday night.

Saw this today: two yellow bins on the side of a street, one with “yes” and one with “no” written on it, underneath a sign saying: “more windmills in [Dutch province] Brabant?” The “yes”-bin is completely full, the other looks empty.

Today we played in Paradiso Amsterdam.

We managed to make the notoriously loud Amsterdam audience listen in complete silence for the whole set.

Tonight we're going to WAD, a documentary about the Waddenzee, the Dutch tidal flats.

I hope the music will be a bit better than in the trailer, but the images are incredible:
