Verslag van Monsterpop 2006


Bizar heeft de eer het toernooi te openen. Als intro speelt de gitarist voor de gelegenheid het deuntje van het Wilhelmus. Bij de eerste band valt op dat de gitarist en de bassist de show stelen. Dit is het eerste optreden in deze formatie, maar vast niet hun eerste optreden. En wat betreft de jury ook niet hun laatste: uiteindelijk vallen ze met een vierde plek net buiten de prijzen. Vaak is het nog niet zo druk aan het begin van een dergelijke dag/avond, maar na verloop van het eerste optreden is Bondi Beach als zo goed als gevuld.


May 07th, 2006 A photobook has been added. You can see the album by going to the section "Multimedia" and choose at the left menu "Photo Gallery". Or just click here to go directly to the photobook !
