Saturday 28 July, 2014 – Jurassic Five performed at Paradiso in Amsterdam. The concert marked their 20year anniversary and had been sold out weeks beforehand. It was a feel-good, hip-hopping, amazing performance that had 1500patrons dancing and hand waving from the first beat until the band members sat on the edge of the stage to give autographs.
Paradiso is situated close to Leidesplein. The main hall is flanked by two levels of balcony space. Leadlight windows give a strange glow to the stage that sits below them, especially during the longer summer days. Drink selection and prices are average. Toilets are annoyingly all the way in the basement. In true scab-style, entrance to the Paradiso involves becoming a member at a cost of EUR3.50 per person, on top of the ticket price. This will come as shock to new punters, although the good news is that paying the fee makes gives you a whole months membership!! http://www.paradiso.nl/
