As I have said before, I only really got to know Skik after they went on an open-ended break. I saw them live once, and it was fun, but I only knew a few songs. So, after seeing Daniël Lohues playing in theaters several times, I was really looking forward to see him play on his “Elektrisch” tour: in clubs, with a band, playing songs that could really use a band. And some Skik stuff as well. Sounds like a guaranteed success to me.
And, to no-one’s surprise, it was excellent. A sold out show in Haarlem’s Patronaat, and as soon as Lohues hit the stage, you could see he was really into it: cowboy hat on his hat, guitar all plugged in and having a great time. By all means, I should have been totally into it.
Unfortunately, due to reasons we’ll get into in the new year, my head was somewhere else entirely. Which is a shame, as it took all the fun out what should have been a great night.
