A list of things to do.... Approved by Margot
1. Brecht Vandenbroucke – Error 404 + afterparty: expo + book release
Brecht Vandenbroucke is releasing his first book. He’s been drawing for a long time and regularly has a comic in The New York Times, which is pretty impressive. He’s presenting his book on the 22nd of February at The Bries Space. He’s also hosting an after party at The New Replay and getting behind the turntables.
22th of February –The Bries Space- Lange Scholiersstraat 10, 2060 Antwerp
After party : The New Replay – Turnhoutsebaan 34, 2140 Borgerhout
2. Dub Police x Untitled! – 6 Years of beats
They first started 6 years ago, for about 150 people but now they’ve grown so much they sell out venues like TRIX. They are really going all out and invited a lot of big names in dubstep like Caspa.
22th of February – TRIX - Noordersingel 28-30, 2140 Antwerp
3. Opening ‘De Nachtwinkel’
Don’t really know what to expect, but all we know is that this is a first in Antwerp. The 3 girls from Driewerk are opening a night shop/gallery in the North of Antwerp. We expect a lot of lights and hopefully some beers
23rd of February – De Nachtwinkel - Veldstraat 69, 2060 Antwerp
4. Noord : Beetje Schmutsig
Noord is always fun! If you want to go dancing it’s ideal. Mofo is located near the Scheldt, so if the weather is right, it is really beautiful. We’re expecting a lot from the Stacks performance, it’s supposed to be great!
23rd of February – Mofo – Rijnkaai 37, 2000 Antwerp
5. Mind The Book 2013
This is quite a unique festival: there will be a lot of international authors. Authors will be interviewing other authors (some in English, some in Dutch). This is Antwerp is also holding a competition for this event so you can win tickets (check the other blogposts). They are also offering a deal for 32euro pp to stay at Pulcinella and get a ticket for the festival
28th of February – 3rd of March – deSingel – Desguinlei 25, 2018 Antwerp
6. D O N D E R B A R
Donderbar is back for at least 3 parties at Mofo. For those who’ve never been : it’s fun and short. There is always one band (this time MASDA) and 2 dj’s. It starts at 9 and ends at 3. Really, at 3am all the lights go on, no matter how many people are there. You’ll hate it at first but like it when you can get up the next day.
28th of February – Mofo – Rijnkaai 37, 2000 Antwerp
7. Big Burdon Vol 4
This is party to go to if you like drum’n bass and dubstep. Don’t know much about it, but it’s really popular in its genre.
1st of March – De Englantier - Zillebekelaan 6, 2600 Berchem
8. Bar Costa
There aren’t too many live show (without compromise) in the heart of Antwerp any more ( especially after Bar Mondial closed) but lately Co Sint Andries has been stepping up and hosting some great bands (like Body Cunt & Nier van A). This time I wonder u is hosting Bar Costa with Believo! & Soldier’s Heart
1st of March – CO Sint Andries – Andriesplaats 26, 2000 Antwerp
