If you'd like to be on the line up get in touch with us via e-mail (check 'info').
We'll do our best to let everyone play a few songs. We don't want to make a time schedule or rules for this. Lets just get together and have some fun.
Please note that we do not organise Groezrock. We're just a few guys who like to have a great time by setting this up, watching everybody play, singing along, and hanging out. This is the end of this hippy note; just come drink and party.
See you there! And don't forget to bring all your friends!
Coming Friday we will be hosting a show at Rockcafe Asgard, Beverwijk. This time we'll have a killer line up with some of the best pop punk acts you can think of: House Boat (US), The 20 Belows (DK), and Mikey Erg (US). The Asgard will be opened from 4pm, show starts a bit later: 9:30pm. Of course it's free to get in.
On March 18th we'll be hosting yet another show at Cafe Lokaal, Heemskerk. This time it'll feature Pale Angels (US/UK) and Post. If you're into 90s alternative/garage/punk/stoner, you shouldn't miss out on this one! (8pm, free entry)
Update: unfortunately Ride The Fader had to cancel, though we found an excellent replacement: Post. Stoner rock!
Coming Friday we'll be hosting an amazing party at De Bakkerij, Castricum, NL. On the line up are Crazy Arm (UK), Bangers (UK), WOAHNOWS (UK), The Liberation Service (AT), and Starfish. (20:00h, €6)

Pale Angels (US/UK) + Ride The Fader
Cafe Lokaal, Heemskerk, NL (20:ooh, free entry)

Rockcafe Asgard, Beverwijk, NL (21:30h, free entry)
On March 18th we'll be welcoming Pale Angels in Cafe Lokaal. On this tour, Pale Angels is comprised of one American and two British dudes. They make music that'll remind you of the times that grunge was still cool. Think of Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr. No wonder this band was formed after a Nirvana cover set. Of course they stay true to their punk roots at the same time, so you can defintely hear some Hüsker Dü in there too. Opening band on this night will be Ride The Fader. Formerly known as Bivouac, this band plays impassioned, melancholic yet hopeful indierock of the kind that thrived in the 1990s. A triumvirate of guitar/vocals, drums and bass not unlike great trios of the 1990s such as Nirvana, Buffalo Tom, Dinosaur Jr and Sebadoh, which are all of great influence on the sound of Ride The Fader. But do not efface contemporary influences in the pursuit of a unique sound where melody and dynamics strive for a prominent place. In short, this night is a must-attend!
On March 28th we'll be partying to some high quality poppunk at Rockcafe Asgard! Opening with Mikey Erg and his guitar, just to show you how good this already sounds. After this The 20 Belows will take it a step further with a full band explosion of the best European poppunk at the moment. Closing band of the night will be House Boat who simply are great. If you like anything ranging from The Ramones to The Queers to Screeching Weasel to (put your favorite poppunk band here), you'll be in for a treat at this show!
