Originally, The Pharmacy, a recognisable indie-rock trio from Washington state, were to play West Germany a few weeks ago but a series of circumstances lead to a short notice cancellation of this anticipated event. It looks like a spare date was found in their schedule to ensure a Berlin gig could be arranged on this tour after all. So tomorrow, they will grace us with their tunes at Marie-Antoinette.
If, like me, you spent your teen years as an indie kid in a tartan shirt and Dr Marten shoes, listening to The Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam, you will appreciate this more modern version of your northern West Coast indie rock. The Pharmacy also display considerably more humour than afore mentioned groups.
Plus, it's a good opportunity to check out Marie-Antoinette one more time before you will make it your living room in November (see the calendar at the bottom of this blog).
The band will be supported by Dure-Mère, a group that has travelled to cold autumn Berlin all the way from the sunny south of France. I know nothing about this band, so let's be surprised by their apparently experimental tunes.
Altogether, this sounds like a nice relaxed way to wind down the weekend, and in my case, bring the school holidays to an end.
