DeWolff (Saturday)

DeWolff has been described as “a three-headed rock ’n roll monster from the Netherlands’ Deep South, the fire-breathing love child of the great rock bands from the 1970’s and psychedelic cosmic radiation from the future”. Their mixture of inexhaustible energy, great musicianship, contagious enthusiasm and a play-like-it’s-your-last-show-mentality have earned them fans around the world. They’ll be performing a free concert at Dutch cultural center Erasmus Huis on Saturday night.
