texmachine unsaddled into the Brussels Underground!

texmachine’s a mean, lean and unstoppable honky tonk train: Shortly, Dougi, Sofie, David and Harvey – aka “texmachine unsaddled” – will dive into the Brussels underground music scene, packed with nothing but a double bass, guitar, a little percussion, four great voices and a small set of classic texmachine songs. It will be a series of surprise visits to a fine selection of venues, baffling everyone!
