Back in 2013 I first saw Mevrouw Tamara sing one song at De supersonische boem!. That one song completely captivated me. So I checked out some of her songs online, and since I liked what I heard, I kept an eye open for a gig I could attend. No such opportunity arose. And then she was announced as the opening act for a balladeer in Utrecht.
Unlike the woman sitting next to me, I dug it.
This is the part where I say that full-band a balladeer is still my favorite a balladeer, that (like the previous 23 shows I saw) it was quite awesome and I had a very good time, that the set list had a nice selection of new songs and old classics, and finally throw in a video of them playing “Trust Fall” at another gig to give you an idea:
And then I wrap it up with the meta information, because that’s what I do.
