The Shebang is back. Crack open a cold one or sip some wine while catching up with your friends in the intimate UCG bar. It will be on Wednesday this time and guess what? It will be sunny (but for how long?). So swing by, wave the winter goodbye and celebrate spring!

OOST is THREE • Birthday Weekender
March 29 from 23:59-06:00 and March 30 from 23:59-06:00, at OOST

OOST is only three years old but already it’s legendary. This cosy club is leaving its not so terrible twos behind and going all out for her third birthday. There's a full lineup good for two nights and special names like Tom Trago that you must hear. If you’ve experienced a night of OOST before, you won’t need that kick in the butt to go, but if you never been, this is a good time to start.

Price: €10 (doorsale only). Find all info here


Paradigm: The Backyard Project
March 23 from 12:00-23:59, at Paradigm

If we have to take the organisation’s own word for it, The Backyard Project will be different than any other Paradigm event that preceded it. And with Sluwe Vos (among others) taking the stage for a 5 hour extended set, it looks like they might actually be right.

Price: €22.50. Find all info here and get your tickets here

That's it for this week, enjoy.


PS Our Arts & Culture correspondent got a visit from the tooth fairy this week and is in great pain (flowers can be sent to slash@caerus-ucg.com). But don't worry, those events (and its author) will be back next week.

Confused about the Dutch elections?
