Flashback to Sixties

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in gigs .

They’ll be showing the nostalgic & Outrageous pirate radio movie “The Boat that Rocked” at my favorite coffee place in Amsterdam: “de Jonge Admiraal.” A coffee place it is.. but it’s more than that, they have good beers, cocktails, parties, live music & excellent food as well. At times in the weekend in the evening hours it feels more like an alternative mini club. Exactly the kind of funky yet cosy setting in which I like to revisit the sound of the Sixties and so I will, because they asked me to play a dancefloor set after the movie! Time for some wonderful English freakbeat, mod, soul blues & raw funk. Think of the Small Faces, the Kinks, Traffic, the Yardbirds & The meters & Taj Mahal. click for the link

Socrates back at IFFR

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in Festival, gigs .

Rotterdam is my home town, it’s where I grew up. I love it, I hate it. It can be harsh ugly & depressing place.. or a warm and funky city with a no-nonsens attitude, bursting with fresh energy.. The latter is definitely the case during the International Film Festival. So I always like to be involved in it one way or another and I have been for the past 10 years or so. This year I’m back at my favorite Film theater Cinerama for a DJ set on the 1st day of February. I always feel welcome here and they give me the freedom to play wathever I like basically:-) Starting at 20.30; IFFR 2016 here I come! click for the link
