The glory of Oostende

Life is a series of events. Some are happy, some are sad. It's up to us all to make the best of it and to enjoy the little and big things life has to offer. To me, music has always played a very important part in my life. A good piece of music can move me, change my day. Music (among other things, of course) is what makes me breathe. Yesterday I had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Tom Robinson at work in Oostende. It's bizarre, really. This guy was engraved in my personal musical memory. I had never seen him "live" and this setting, Club Terminus made the concert quite special. It's a small venue and that kind of made me feel like Tom Robinson was playing in my living room. He's still a great artist. There is a strong and warm connection with his audience. He's also very down-to-earth. At a certain moment he digs out his glasses to read some lyrics and says: "It's been quite a while since I sang this song. And... it's been quite a while since I was born... But I still rock!" The concert was fun, a bit nostalgic maybe, but definitely a good night out...

What did come to my mind, is the "reachability" of artists that were huge not even that long ago. That perception may come from the fact that I'm not 21 anymore myself, but still. Just last week Kiki Dee gave a very intimate concert at Kursaal Oostende. Annabel Lamb was backing vocalist... And yesterday Tom Robinson played at Club Terminus. Oostende is very much alive musically and otherwise. And trust me... more is coming soon...

And euh... does anyone have a picture from last night's show to put here... I was too wrapped in the music to take a decent one myself...
