The Berlin calendar seems really free jazz driven this week, which isn't always my thing, but J. likes it and a lot of people do. For everyone else, there is the following:
Pontiak at Jägerklause: Thrill Jockey protegés. Clever. Noisy at times but mostly just rhythmic and pleasing, changing direction within songs. I've always had a soft spot for these guys. You should go. It's the best gig on offer in Berlin this week.
Matt Elliott and Zun Zun Egui at Kater Holzig: Matt Elliott = Quiet, dark and melancholic folk music. Beautiful. For fans of Black Heart Procession. Zun Zun Egui = poppy post-punk. Fun.
Sun Worship at Metalheads exhibition, Gestalten Space: This photography exhibition by Jörg Brüggemann looks fun. For the opening event, our favourite local black metal band is performing. It's an early gig. See you there at 6pm!
