With a voice like that, Billie Kawende could definitely do it on her own. Still she’s looking for keyboard and bass players who can lift her to an even higher level! Read more
The Tom Odell concert on Friday 17 May in AB was sold out in no time. If you weren't able to get hold of tickets then you can still head down the Brussels South station. Read more

Coca-Cola Sessions: four times in fall 2012!
Another eight fresh, local and relevant acts. Wanna bet that the word 'exciting' will soon be mentioned?
Coca-Cola is not only a tasty soft drink. Coca-Cola is also a super-sponsor of the AB. So there will again be 8 relevant acts to be discovered during 4 fresh Coca-Cola Sessions this fall too.
Friday 5 October we have our eye on DALLAS and KISS & DRIVE Dallas is the effervescent singing alias of Veerle Baetens. Extremely impressive acting and singing in The Broken Circle Breakdown. But here again sweetly inviting us to this club concert:
Wednesday 10 October HONG KONG DONG and POLAROID FICTION Hong Kong Dong is Sarah and Boris Zeebroek, clearly Kamagurka kids, and they again invite you too (even back-to-front!?)

So that'll be exciting!
