Sue the Night Look Forward

At: Hogere Burgerschool 's Gravendijkwal

Sue the Night is the alternative pop formation based around singer/songwriter Suus de Groot. The six-piece hailing from Haarlem, joined us in its simpler two-piece form and gave us a stripped down rendition of “Look Forward” a song included in their newly released debut album “Mosaic”. The setting was provided by an imposing staircase in a historical school building in the ‘s Gravendijkwal which provided a unique acoustic result due to its impressive reverb.
