Venue: Podium Asteriks in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands
Afterpartees is a garage rock band based in Limburg, a province in the south of The Netherlands, near the German border. Three years ago they released their debut album and captured the hearts of the public of many clubs and festivals. Maybe it’s because of the name, because every show is a real party. Sometimes the singer is almost lost in the crowd, and on stage he’s a bouncing ball.
Afterpartees released in February 2018 their second album ‘Life is easy’, a great album with catchy songs about the joy of life (and also about some serious stuff). The band is on club tour through The Netherlands and Germany and showed up last week at the venue Podium Asteriks in Leeuwarden. Rock At Night was there to shoot the party.
Afterpartees is: Niek Nellen (vocals), Bas Nellen (guitar), Jesse van den Munckhof (guitar), Sjors Driessen (bass), Teun Winkelmolen (drums)
