I'm from the south of the Netherlands, I live in a city called Tilburg.
We've got a few bands over here and sometimes there are hardcore/punk shows in a small venue called Little Devil (Touche Amore is playing in a few months, I'm really stoked about that). It's not really vivid though, some shows there are 30 people and others are packed. It's always a bit insecure setting up a show here.
Tilburg has a few cool bands:
Cracks in the Wall
State of Affairs
I'm in 2 hardcorebands:
Not from this city, but from the Netherlands...
This Routine is Hell
Brat Pack (Nijmegen)
Sand Creek Massacre (Nijmegen)
and bands like Seein Red were already in the second post about the Netherlands!
Reflections is one of the biggest labels in Europe and also from Tilburg!
Cool venues with a squatting history...
De Onderbroek (Nijmegen)
