Berlin is busy. We are busy. Yet, we could not miss the chance to celebrate. So apart from your below listed, interesting evening program, make sure you also go to our Craze Tea Time afternoon on Sunday. We would love to hang out with you, cake, tea, and good music! See you there! Oh and as always, check the calendar, there's much more going on this week than we feature here in the preview.
Birthmark (Nate Kinsella) house show: the guys from m0ck are organizing another house show. This time Nate Kinsella aka. Birthmark will be playing, you may know him for being a member in bands such as Joan of Arc and Make Believe. Check the m0ck homepage for more info on where the show is an how you can take part.
Birds in Row and Jungbluth at Cassiopeia: Chaotic and dark hardcore from France and Germany. Jungbluth are ex-Alpinist, expect this to be an intense live experience!
Maps & Atlases at Magnet Club: Clever and poppy math indie rock, Maps & Atlases are fun. If you’re into fluffy melodies and tight rhythm and guitars, check this out.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds at Admiralspalast: the kings of dark and melancholy alterntive pop/rock are back with a new record to promote. Don’t think we need to say much more about that.
Fraktus at Astra: I’m pretty sure by now everybody knows who and what Fraktus is. For those who don’t, Fraktus are pretty much the godfathers of Techno. Their show last year at Festsaal Kreuzberg was totally sold out, so here’s your next chance to see them, although in a less cozy surrounding.
Bosetti/Nosova and Vandeweyer/Gräwe at Ausland: Two very different music projects. Ausland organizes improvised and experimental concerts on a regular basis, this time an electronics/drums/voice project meets a vibraphone/piano project. There’s some more info on the artists on Auslands homepage, be sure to have a look if you have something for echtzeitmusik.
Batalj and Opa at West-Germany: This is probably our gig of the week. Batalj is a chaotic hardcore/grindcore/screamo band of three Swedish/Australian expats living in Berlin at the moment. This is going to be their record release show and we’re sure this is going to be wild. Support will be Opa again, something else to look forward to.
Toby Goodshank at Sofa Salon: Not in the mood for chaotic wild hardcore? Why not go see Toby Goodshank again. We already wrote about him a couple of times so you should know the deal. Nice anti-folk stuff from a former Moldy Peaches member.
The Craze Tea Time at West Germany: As we mentioned before, we’re celebrating our passing of 50.000 views on the blog with an afternoon of tea, (vegan) cakes and some good music. We’re starting at 4pm, drop by and hang out with us!
