Preview: the week ahead (18th - 21st Mar)

Spring cannot be far off, right? Right?! Keep the spirit up with some top notch entertainment this coming week. It's all we've got on offer.

Low Culture and Sick Horse at Wowsville: Low Culture play catchy punk tunes. If you liked some of their members former band Marked Men, you’ll like this one. Support are Sick Horse from Berlin. The show takes place at Wowsville, usually they’re a bar and record shop but they throw neat punk and rock shows now and then.
Oneida and B/B/S at Comet Club: We’ve been so looking forward to this one! Oneida are currently celebrating their 15th band birthday and are finally back in Berlin again, after their last show at Puschenfest 2011 (read our review here). They rightly were on our top of the year lists back then and we’re pretty sure they’ll be again this year. B/B/S, Aidan Baker’s newest Berlin based band project, will do a worthy support - read our review from one of their first gigs here. I guess it’s safe to call this our gig of the week.


LCMDF at Comet Club: If you missed these Finnish Berlin-based pop sensations a couple of months back, here is another chance for you. Go party!

Movie Time: “The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye” at Arsenal (Potsdamer Platz): Although not necessarily live music related, this might be of interest to some of you. Arsenal (the institute for movie and video art) is showing this 2011 documentary film about Genesis P-Orridge (from Psychic TV and formerly Throbbing Gristle) and her wife Lady Jaye. It’s a rather intimate take on their life together, their art and music and their “Pandrogyne” project, in which they both underwent plastic surgery to look and become more alike. Have a look on this website to get some more information about the movie and keep in mind that Psychic TV will be playing at Festsaal Kreuzberg on the 20th of March!

The Men and Delta Love at Festsaal Kreuzberg: Another band climbing the ladder of venue size and playing Festsaal Kreuzberg after their last show took place at West Germany. If you missed the West Germany gig, here’s your next chance and if you were there, I guess we won’t have to give you further reasons to also attend this one. 

Modern Pets record release show with Diät and Eastie Roys at Kastanienkeller: Nice punk package and definitely a fully packed Kastanienkeller this Friday. From melodic 77s punk to cold wave punk, you’ll find something fitting your needs in here.

Primitive Rites and Derbe Lebowski at Bei Ruth: Hardcore from Sweden with members of Sista Sekunden meets Powerviolence from Berlin. Sounds like an adequate way to end your weekend plus this will be the first show at Bei Roy for this year. They underwent some structural changes and obviously chose a new name, even more reasons to check this show out.
Teen at Comet Club: C*’s personal gig of the week, heck, of the month. I have been anticipating this gig for months, having gotten so addicted to Teen’s 2012 album “In Limbo”. The new album is due soon and I, for one, cannot wait. Read my love message to Teen to get even more excited. Also, we are going to do a ticket give-away extravanganza for this gig soon - so keep coming back to The Craze, win some tix and let’s all party party together on Sunday.

  1. Are you loving the Kevin Bacon? Yes? There is actually a video of Better on the net that Teen made themselves and features the ladies on their travels. But you cannot beat Bacon, right? So I gave you Bacon. Loving it.
