Indie concert venues?

Hi all,

I will be travelling with three other 20 somethings to Amsterdam from Jan 5-15. We would like to see a concert or two while we are there, and we are particularly interested in the underground/indie music scene. Any advice as to venues or particular concerts?

Thanks very much!

3voor12.vpro.nl/blijfopdehoogte/agenda/ lists everything going on - up til 11th January at the moment. It also links to venue sites which have later dates listed.

Amsterdam weekly is also a good place to look - you can download the latest issue of the free paper at http://www.amsterdamweekly.nl/

Go to Paradiso even if it's to see a band you don't know - a terrific venue. Melkweg is the other famous and excellent Amsterdam venue.

Also with it being a small country with good late night transport, gigs in places like Utrecht, Haarlem and even Rotterdam (at a stretch) are do-able from Amsterdam.

There are also "legal squats" that feature underground bands - and cheap beer. OT301 has a very good set-up. http://squat.net/overtoom301/pages/home.html
