Utrecht was hardly Beat-Central in the 1960s but did produce a small number of cool bands (a basic introduction can be found here).
One of the top-draws in the local scene back then, The Mods, are doing a reunion show on November 7 at the Veemarkthallen along with the Driftin' Five. No guarantees from this end about this turnin' out to be either an oldies yawn fest or that the fire's still burning, just figured some of you might like to check it out.

The Japanese Wizzard In Vinyl label has released two CDs documenting the complete early works of Ohio legends the Rubber City Rebels: "The Akron Years - Features the '77 Clone sessions, plus live from The Crypt and awesome video content, and The Hollywood Years - Digitally Re-mastered Re-mixed '79 Capitol sessions plus bonus tracks and 1980 KROQ interview".
