More info about the stages and organizations:

The PodiumPost is an initiative from seven organizations for jazz, improvisation, experimental, electronic, and new music concerts in several alternative stages in Amsterdam. They constitute the breeding grounds that are needed to keep this music going.These concerts are a part of a unique local scene and are attended by the general public and a regular devoted crowd. The stages are not or hardly subsidized and the musicians are not paid. There is rarely money for publicity, and e-mail is a cheap and effective way to reach the public. By subscribing to the PodiumPost you will be kept up-to-date on all the latest events happening in Amsterdam, and will have the opportunity to experience the very latest in these musical areas.
