The vegetables we eat, are often straight as an arrow or beautifully round, the same size and with glossy surface. Yet not all vegetables are perfect. Where are all the thick, crooked, long and irregular vegetables? Well, that's what the girls from Kromkommer tried to find out.

This upcoming Saturday will be a special one. To immortalize his bond with Trouw, San Proper will get a tattoo of the Trouw logo before his Proper's Cult night. Because of this occasion, we will transform the room above the stairs (where Lloyd at Trouw was also located) into the Mrs. Martins Disciples Tattoo Side Shop hosted by Jevin de Groot for one night. And you can also get a tattoo there!

When Aroy Dee calls up for the interview, he is playing in the park with his daughter as Steven, the architect. He warns me that his alter ego might have to cut the interview short if fatherly duties call. I learn later that Aroy Dee is generally a creature of the night...

It's always a joy to have Steffi and Martyn back in our building. Both are Dutch as can be, but living abroad for quite some time now in Berlin and Washington.

Oliver Hafenbauer is a Frankfurt originated and based DJ with an extraordinary job: he’s the musical curator of both the Robert Johnson club and the Live At Robert Johnson label. Besides that he recently launched his own label ‘Die Orakel’ and produces music along with Christian Beißwenger (from ex-Arto Mwambe) as B.H.F.V. From looking at this list you’d say Olivers agenda wouldn’t have gaps to be filled by interviews. But somehow he did manage to find time to answer my questions.

Back in 2008 a music video appeared on MTV that was hard to ignore. Yes, MTV was still a thing then and, yes they still played music videos! The video featured a woman in a dream-like state walking through a ritualistic Greek orgy, but the visual aspects proved to be a mere distraction from the impressive music that accompanied the video. The name of the track was Blind and it was my first encounter with Hercules and Love Affair.

White fields, black trees, a night in winter. Black men, pink trees, blazing sun. Long marches, a state of alertness, wolves closing in. The feeling of dread, fear of something vague.

Seth Troxler and barbecues are a match made in heaven. You can often find our resident behind the grill, like at the last DC10 Grill Offs on Ibiza and at his own pop-up BBQ restaurant Smokey Tails in London. Since it’s looking like we're getting good weather this Sunday, we thought it would be fun if Seth would not only spin records that day, but also show you his skills behind the BBQ. That’s why Seth Troxler will be grilling you some delicious pieces of meat on our terrace this Sunday May 18.

Cauliflower, fennel, artichoke, kohlrabi; this is just a small selection of the vegetables present on our menu.This is because we are predominantly a restaurant with a starring role for vegetables of the season, but we also serve meat and fish for the real carnivores. Our spring menu again is packed with all kinds of vegetables. Can you tell us how many exactly? Then you’ll win a vegetable tasting for two persons.

I expected to have a talk with Seth Troxler about his online activities, since he is one of the most active DJs on the net. But, seeing as my Skype call disturbed him during a studio session, his alter ego Creepy Larry answered and took the conversation to a whole other level.

Normally, our Resident of the Month always performs in the club that month, no matter what. But with a visual Resident of the Month, highlighting their work in such a way is a bit more challenging. Meeus van Dis came up with an whole new idea for his residency: an exhibition in De Hal and De Rode Ruimte with colleague Bob Waardenburg from May 15 to May 31, which will also opens the art exhibition season in Trouw! More info will follow soon on this.Next page
