Preview: the week ahead (6th Feb - 12th Feb)

I'm a bit in a hurry so this is going to be a bit of a quick preview. Nonetheless there's good stuff going on this week, as usual check the calendar on the bottom for more stuff going on!

I Break Horses at Comet Club: It's a bit like shoegaze for people who like Coco Rosie and My Bloody Valentine. Sounds good.

2 Saxophones & 2 Drums 4tet at Altes Finanzamt: Check out this facebook event page for more details about the participating musicians. It's going to be a bit free jazzy and certainly worth a visit at Altes Finanzamt!

Wild Flag at Lido: Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss from Sleater Kinney with their new indie pop punk band. You'll probably already know the deal.

Alpinist, Patsy O' Hara and Quiritatio at ZGK (Scharnweberstraße 38, Friedrichshain): dark and heavy hardcore, like a melodic version of bands like Tragedy, His Hero Is Gone and comparable. This is a nice package and I'm sure it's going to be good.

Arms and Sleepers and Kirrin Island at Schokoladen: Arms and Sleepers play nice electro-indie stuff. They sound a bit like a jazzy ambient mixture between Radiohead and Gregor Samsa. And make sure to support Schokoladen, they're still in trouble and are threatened to be evicted on Feb 22nd, check the website for more info! They need your support!

Soap & Skin at Volksbühne: if you're into all this dark ambient music with great female vocals, like Zola Jesus and stuff like that, this is for you. It's opulent and sort of pathetic, but that's not necessarily a bad thing I'd say.
