Warhaus, March 18th 2023, Gebäude 9 Cologne

Went there with Chris, was a great night. I am a huge fan of Maarten. His solo music is much more chill than Balthazar, and it's definitely different and slower compared to a Balthazar concert. But the guy is great, an incredibly talented musician. And I love it when he holds his guitar up under his chin.

Marteen's concerts, both for Balthazar and Warhaus, are not just songs from the album but-it's-live. Instead, he rethinks the songs and how they could work live, creating a very unique experience.

The first solo was kind of weird? It felt like the guitarist and the drummer had no idea what to do. But maybe they were just being musical geniuses, who knows.
