Open Mic Night- Bomberleo & Friends

6 Dec

Big shout out to BomberLeo and Friends, happening tonight in the Oost! Sadly I cannot make it as I am too busy preparing for the Christmas Pop Up this weekend (more on that to come). But my hubbie is playing, so go check out The Mass Seduction, and all the other great acts that will be playing tonight. Sad to be missing it! But then both BomberLeo and The Mass Seduction are also playing at the Christmas Lounge and Mini Market Pop Up this Sunday too! Twice in one week arn’t you all lucky!

BomberLeo & Friends

All details below:

The last BomberLéo & Friends for a little while is on its way… NOT in Betty, TOO!

Coming thursday, december the 6th, we’ll take the stage in café ZEN, Molukkenstraat 2 (Amsterdam-Oost). Please join us!

The night starts at 8 (as usual) and ends whenever it needs to end (as usual). (The only differences are alcohol and not having to risk standing on the stairs for 3 hours.)

Performing artists are: Theo & Corinne, Ben and his band ‘Mass Seduction’, Unom, Joost van Kersbergen, Jorrit Mulder, The Storytellers, Maxim Aafjes, Yuri, BomberLéo, whoever comes up on the open mic, and Zen’s house-dj who will be juicing the night up with some chillin records. BLAF’s season 1 compilation cd’s will be available too for a very very special price!

So get your asses over there and treat yourself to an inspiring evening, or treat us to an open-mic surpreso!

See you the 6th, thursday, 8 pm, café ZEN.

Thursday Treats For your Ears!

19 Jan


Thursday 19th Jan



8pm – midnight

reguliersdwarsstraat 29

Tonight band ‘Grimm’, poet ‘The Tactful Cactus’, mc ‘Fredee Brazil’, singer-songwriter ‘Three Drowned Mermaids’, guitarists ‘Craig Latta’ and ‘Driu’ and one-man-band ‘The Drip Dry Man’ will remind us of the wholesomeness of creativity!

Come and see BomberLéo and her talented Friends live at 8 pm @ betty, too or tune in to the BLAF-stream on facebook!

BomberLéo & friends is a monthly opportunity for befriended artists (musicians, poets and spoken word artists, writers etc.) to share and exchange their newest ideas, try out new songs, projects or ideas in an intimate place like Betty, Too!

Without the pressure of having to play a full, serious gig, but with the motivational or encouraging push of… an interested and quietly listening audience. Performances are all acoustic (or semi-acoustic).

Our aim is to have a variety of styles and a mix of more- and less experienced artists. Besides the prepared performances their will be plenty room for spontaneous acts and improvisation. Participation and input of the audience is always welcome!

BomberLéo and Betty, TOO! hope to provide a breeding nest for creativity. A place to not only perform or listen, but to inspire and get inspired, support and get supported as well.

Interested in playing/performing? Let us know! (leave a message on the FB page or send an e-mail to BomberLéo:
