CONFIRMED @ Paradiso! The Menzingers (Epitaph) + The Smith Street Band (AUS) + The Holy Mess (USA) 8 OCT

The most exciting band in the punkrock scene!
They recently played a packed main stage at GROEZROCK after selling out the Winston Kingdom completely in 2012 and playing the Lowlands festival in 2013. Poppunk at it’s best with and emo and grungy 90s grit to it.

They are bringing THE SMITH STREET BAND from Australia who are rapidly becoming bigger with their rebellious and catchy folk punk rock. Also supporting are THE HOLY MESS, one of my absolute favorites, soooo STOKED they are part of this show. Sloppy and aggressive pop punk with modern masterpieces of booze soaked, regret fueled bangers. BE THERE!


CONFIRMED @ Winston! Masked Intruder (USA) w/ The Murderburgers (SCO) 28 Aug

The most criminal band in the punkscene is coming over to Amsterdam for the very first time! These guys played FEST, GROEZROCK and last year a sold out ROTTERDAM RIOT FEST and they are getting big fast with their polished super catchy love songs.

For everyone who likes bands as The Ramones, Teenage Bottlerocket and more. Songs that will get stuck in your head, super singalongable with a great powerful live show… Come check this out!


CONFIRMED @ Winston! Iron Chic (USA) w/ Call It Off (NL) 16 May

Everyone who saw them play at the GROEZROCK Etnies stage last year will agree this show is going to be SICK!!

FFO: Hot Water Music, Latterman, Red City Radio, Off With Their Heads, The Draft, Elway, The Menzingers

Long Island supergroup and melodic punk band features former Latterman, Small Arms Dealer, Get Bent and Capital members. They are Sensational, Smart, Experienced and Sing-along-able to the bone!

WE’RE MOVING BAAAACKWAAARDDSSSS, NOT FORWARDS… We have waited two years for them to finally come back and we cannot be more excited!

Oklahoma City punk rockers Red City Radio do raucous, gruff-voiced sing-alongs that are as catchy as they are brash and as anthemic as they are rebellious. You better start checking out the new album if you haven’t already… trust us, you will want to sing along!

They have shared the stage with Against Me!, Strung Out, MXPX, The Queers, Smoking Popes, Riverboat Gamblers, The Menzingers, Off With Their Heads, and more. In 2012 they played Groezrock at an 11 AM incredible explosive show and I just saw them rock THE FEST in Gainesville, Florida.


CONFIRMED @ Winston! Elway (USA) + Joe McMahon (Smoke Or Fire) w/ Sweet Empire 17 April

They play GROEZROCK 2014!!
Red Scare Records’ (label of Masked Intruder, The Menzingers, Nothington, Teenage Bottlerocket, Cobra Skulls, The Copyrights, The Holy Mess) Elway do aggressive punk rock with soaring melodies.

We are excited to have them at the Winston, their set at THE FEST was amazingly good. So check these guys out and come build a Human Pyramid with us!

Joe McMahon – singer of SMOKE OR FIRE will support Elway ACOUSTIC along with long time Elway fans and friends Sweet Empire.

CONFIRMED: STRIKE ANYWHERE! w/ Antillectual + The Minority – Wed 17 July

Their first ever European show was at the Winston back in 2001. They played there once more in 2003 and after that only bigger venues like the Melkweg and 013 and big festivals incl Groezrock… but every time I spoke with them (they are one of my all time favs!) they told me how much they wanted to play the Winston again… SO WE MADE IT HAPPEN!

This is gonna be LE-GEN-DA-RY, don’t miss out!
