The shadow of the stranglers

"Once upon a time, when most of you here were not even born, there was a band... called the stranglers"
The master strangler, Hugh Cornwell, was playing in Paradiso, Amsterdam, yesterday night
The little stage was full, but this was no comparison to the crowd cramming the big room of this converted church, where a gothic-sort of band called XX made your ears blow out
Cornwell played with drummer and bassist (you could hear her when you wanted to), who's names significantly enough do neither show on Hugh Cornwell's website nor the website of paradiso

Spaces of art

An Arts-route in Leiden disclosed the interiors of the ateliers of local artists
Some were in disused old schools
some were in private houses
one exhibition even used a disco
