OCCII

While many music rooms in Amsterdam reflect squat culture, few are still so openly squat-minded as this legalised art and noise complex at the end of Vondelpark. Besides the recently refurbished gig room (finally bringing the stage, sound system and toilets up to scratch), there are rehearsal studios, a children's theatre, a vegan cafe and a squatter library. Its programming is eclectic, playing host to the underground of the underground. Think queer punk nights, hardcore, glitchcore, new wave, experimental hip-hop, art rock and obscure jazz freak-out. Better-known outsiders such as Melt-Banana, Scout Niblett and the Sun Ra Arkestra occasionally pack the place out, but pick any of the old-school photocopied posters on the wall to find an interesting time.
