Preview: the week ahead (19th - 25th August)

The Festsaal folks have picked the best week for their benefit show because there is really not a lot that is getting Team Craze excited this week. See you all on Thursday at Postbahnhof!

Roller One and Man Meets Bear at Monarch: Singer-songwriter music from Double Bass and Acoustic guitar duo Roller One in the cosy setting of Monarch. A nice, relaxing evening.
Lydia Lunch at White Trash: I know, right? White Trash? Well, I am not exactly sure of the numbers, but I am certain at the height of her career, White Trash’s Diamond Lounge may have been size of venue bathroom. So this is a cool chance to see Ms. Lunch in an intimate setting. 

Wife, Joane Skyler, and Puce Mary at Naherholung Sternchen: I would loosely fit Wife into the genre of dance music but your dancing would have to happen in slow motion. People are talking about this UK project and I think the reason must be that, despite using fairly common dance music elements, their music has something unsettling, too. A life performance could go either way really but I reckon this could be interesting and worth your visit to Sternchen this week.
Phoenix Festsaal benefit show: Look at the Facebook event to see the eclectic line-up for the benefit show, which is aimed at raising funds to start a charity for the rebuilding of Festsaal. I pick out King Khan & BBQ as my recommendation for you. But it could be anything else. This is going to be fun.

Chris Corsano and Jenny Gräf at Monarch: We have reviewed drumming sensation Mr. Corsano on several occasions before, e.g. here, here, and here. He is teaming up with experimental artist Jenny Gräf for this special night. So read up and head over to Monarch on Sunday.
