Frühsommer, as we say in German, is the best! But we're expecting real depression when the temperatures will drop again. Let's make the most of the sunshine, while we can, as in, let's publish a real short preview for a real mellow week.
Monday (as in tonight)
Eric Ayotte at Gebrüll und Scheisse: Singer-songwriter with a punk rock background doing his thing. Be there 8pm on the dot. Address can be found in our calendar entry.
Fanfarlo and Greg MacPherson at Postbahnhof: Hopefully Greg MacPherson will get some more attention here than at his last Berlin concert (see our review here). He's definitely worth it and he surely is one of the more interesting singer songwriter musicians around these days. I never heard of Fanfarlo before. They play fluffy indie pop music and seem to be a bit bigger, considering they play Postbahnhof. Not my cup of tea really but Greg MacPherson is still worth watching live.
U.S. Girls at Marie-Antoinette: We have reviewed this lady's awesomeness before. Go and be open-minded and mesmerised. Gig of the week, hands down.
Demon's Claws at West Germany: Raw lo-fi garage rock from Canada on a Saturday night? Sure, sounds swell! For fans of Thee Oh Sees, etc.
The Burning Hell at Marie-Antoinette: M-A is a happening place this week. Tonight we can hang out here to hear good quality folk music by The Burning Hell, also from Canada.
Tu Fawning at HAU2: Quirky folk pop, previewed on the craze before. Highly anticipated gig that many music journalists will write about for sure. I'm not sure whether there are still tickets available but if so, consider purchasing one.
