First gig ever of the new band around Mark Janssen (ex- guitar player and songwriter of After Forever). Mark is a very friendly guy and a very good composer. It was thus no surprise to encounter so many people at this show (especially if you consider the band didn’t already release any demo before this gig). The expectations were very high and Sahara Dust passed its entrance examination.

The response from the crowd was very good and Sahara Dust can already be regarded as the forthcoming dutch big seller.

No pics from Anathema (stupid since the guitar player wore a very beautiful bonnet)…but I directly fell asleep after the two first notes… I will see this act next millennium… till then, I will train to stay awake.
