So… I’m back! I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. I’m currently working on my thesis, and I can’t wait for it to be finished so I can hand it in and never have to look at it again! Think I took too much on my plate by doing too much research and using too many different research methods… In a month and a half I will (hopefully) be finished and (hopefully) have passed so I can graduate and finally have my master’s degree in Communication sciences.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, my friend Amelie and I visited this new coffee place in Ghent, called Huiskamer Ernest. This coffee bar simply wants to be a cozy and artsy living room in the city, where you can relax, hang out with your friends, read, study, work, etc… They organize concerts and workshops as well, and on the 2nd of June, Amelie and I went to see Isbells.
Isbells is a Belgian band which is mostly known for its melancholic pop-folk songs. To be honest, I didn’t know that many songs, but I still had a great time. They’re amazing live and the music fit perfectly in the intimate atmosphere Huiskamer Ernest advocates. It literally felt like Isbells was performing a private concert in your living room.
For all of you who don’t know the band, here’s a live performance of their song ‘Heading For The Newborn’ at our youth radio station Studio Brussel. Couldn’t find any of the footage taken at Huiskamer Ernest online, so you’ll have to do with this. You can find more about them here and here and here.
Hope you enjoyed and talk to you soon!
