Subterranean Street Society
More details

Subterranean Street Society is the moniker of one the most talented buskers of Amsterdam. His stage is usually set on the squares of the city, but luckily, he’s got The Waterhole’s stage at his disposal tonight.

He draws his inspiration from artists like Towns Van Zandt, Radiohead, Feist, Neil Young, The Beatles en Bob Dylan. With his effortless guitar playing and refined songwriting, he’s in a busking-league of his own. The troubadour and true romantic loves to be among the many excentric characters the streets of Amsterdam have to offer. Tonight however, we’re happy he plays an indoor gig!

Suburban Symphony (UK)
More details

Suburban Symphony formed in January 2014 and they aim to write catchy songs with memorable vocal melodies, three part harmonies and driving beats. The 5 piece formed from bands such as Bashphelt, Pipeline, Stilts and Gizesque. Therefore, their previous experience enabled them to get up and running quickly and by October 2014, the band had written 14 songs prompting them to start recording their debut album. The band play in North West England where they hail from. However, in 2016 they also enjoyed relative success further afield by playing at Camden Rocks Festival (on the same line up as bands such as The Cribs, Sikth and Carl Barat & The Jackals) and Lowde Fest supporting The Feeling. The band’s highly anticipated debut single 'Stepping Stones' is now available to purchase on all major digital platforms below! #UpTheSymphony
