Late, later, the latest. Preview time can be a challenge for The Craze staff. This week is such a week. The calendar is actually chocker full but here is a sweet small selection for you folks, just because we love you.
Dulac and Ren Hoek at Tiefgrund: If you’re in for a cozy punk show check out these bands at Tiefgrund. Dulac play poppy and catchy punk, very melodic and reminding me of bands like Neon Piss. Ren Hoek play more noisy and in your face punk with a hint of stoner-rock. The show starts on time at 9.30pm.
Colin Stetson and Holger Hiller at Berghain: Gig fo the week, hands down! This is easily gig of the week stuff. Colin Stetson is an american saxophone player on Constellation records. He creates hauntingly beautiful melodies and percussive sounds with his saxophone and recently got quite well-known for collaborating with Bon Iver. Besides that he played and collaborated with various “indie” bands (TV on the Radio, Arcade Fire, Tom Waits) and experimental musicians and acts (Anthony Braxton, Peter Brötzmann). Also playing will be Holger Hiller, whom you probably know as member of Palais Schaumburg. Considering Berghains impressive architecture and sound, this will definitely be good, trust us!
Julia Holter at Volksbühne: New material being showcased by the adored Julia Shammas Holter. We need not say more.
Kommando Sonne-nmilch at Lido: Kommando Sonne-nmilch is the current and also quite long-lasting band of Jens Rachut from Oma Hans, Dackelblut, Angeschissen and Blumen am Arsch der Hölle. He started Kommando Sonne-nmilch as a project experimenting with electronic sounds and weird song arrangements. Until now Kommando Sonne-nmilch’s sound changed into more straight forward punk similar to late Oma Hans records. They’re on tour now with their recent record “You pay I fuck” and since I never saw a bad concert from a Rachut band I don’t see why this should be an exception… check out the video below from their current tour.
