The band "nada surf" had a big success in 1996. How come, I have never heard of them?
On 17th of october the band gave a concert in the paard van troje in Den Haag.
The band around foreman Matthew Caws used to play punk, but their music now more is agreeable pop-rock for a pleasant night out.
The main attraction of the band for sure was the bassist Daniel Lorca.
That is exactly how a rock musician should look like 

And of course he did not have any problems changing a string of his guitar in the middle of a song
The band was supported by Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, however, I could not detect any harpoons, if not one of them is his guitar.
However, his powerful and sad songs (fitting to his a bit awkward and helpless appearance on the stage), made a great impression and I look forward to see him again.
and the lonely smoker....
