Preview: the week ahead (4th Nov - 10th Nov)

Whoa!! It is November, it is busy in our calendar. Get the party clothes on, it’s going to be a wild week. 

  • Body/Head at Bi Nuu: XNormanX was a little disgruntled after their last show in Berlin. But we are convinced: it’s Kim Gordon with a guitar and it can only be good. See a legend do experimental guitar music.

  • Holograms at Monarch: Holograms delivered one of the best albums of 2012, in C*’s view, and they played one of Berlin’s worst gigs of 2012, in C*’s view. Smaller venue, same great songs - this could be great if they try harder this time.
  • Warpaint at Heimathafen Neukölln: C* has got her ticket at the ready. A special treat that gets her tingling. Meet her indie dancing at Heimathafen this Wednesday.
  • Molly Nilsson and Beaver Sheppard at SHIFT: C*’s firm favourite giving one of her legendary Berlin performances. You really should not miss out.

  • Cassie Ramone & O.J. Xray Eyeballs at Grüner Salon: A Vivian Girl on a solo tour, O.J. of Xray Eyeballs in tow. I bet this is going to be special. Cannot wait!!
  • Orchestra of Spheres and High Wolf at Urban Spree: We have praised both experimental electronic dance outfits on this blog before. This is going to be a high quality evening of mind-blowness. Play along.

  • Baths + Dam Mantle + Freddy Knop at about blank: Baths plays very nice experimental beat based indie hip hop and recently released his second record on Anticon records. His music is the perfect combination of weirdness and pop and his live performances are supposedly spectacular. Support will be Dam Mantle, playing poppy electronic music and Berlin based Freddy Knop who used to play under his moniker pOnk before.
  • Scout Niblett at Privatclub: Many indie fans will have waited for this for a long time. Scout Niblett in a venue the size of my living room. What a treat for fans of the singer’s wonderful tunes. 

  • Gary War and Purple Pilgrims at Team Titanic: Gary War makes an appearance in Berlin once a year and it’s always a nice rencontre. Read our review from the time when he supported John Maus.

  • Dent May at Monarch (Matinée show): If you gladly miss out on Hurts and Glasvegas at Velodrom (and we gladly do), then a sweet dance afternoon at Monarch must be your dream (it is ours). Dent May may have shed his Ukulele but he still sings a sweet tune. Read our last review of Dent May at Monarch and join us for afternoon tea this Sunday at 4 pm.
