Preview: the week ahead (7th-13th March)

Last year, March was almost our busiest month of live music in Berlin, this year, boo, March is a right slow mo. Exactly 4 noteworthy gigs this week.

DAF at K17: Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft are playing three German club shows in the near future and this is one of them. I have no idea if it's easy to get a ticket or even to get in on the night but seeing DAF at a reasonably small venue (by DAF standards) should be exciting and fun.
Holy Ghost! at Berghain: Disco Disco! NY City guys know how to make you move, taking inspiration from the 70s and 80s for it. This is my recommendation of the week.
Boduf Songs at Dense Shop and Schokoladen: With a die-hard fan base, Boduf Songs plays "deceptively low key, and skirts between singer-songwriter, psychedelic, home recorder and folk modes, bringing an obtuse, angular minimalism to these forms", according to Kranky Records, home to Boduf Songs. Go to Schokoladen and be quiet and take in the beauty. Boduf Songs are also playing a Matinée show from 3 to 6pm at Dense Record Shop (near Frankfurter Tor) with DJ Knive as support.

Surfer Blood at Privat Club: Indie rock with a surf theme. This might be a nice way to start your Saturday night.
