Preview: the week ahead (3rd Feb - 9th Feb)

Is it just me or did January went really by that quickly? I haven't been to that many shows yet but chances are good that this will change during the next weeks. Have a look at our calendar for more stuff and as always: here's our preview for the week.

Monday
  • Mombu + Ovo at Schokoladen: Prepare for a noisy evening at Schokoladen. Mombu from Italy are an "AfroGrindJazzCore" saxophone + drums duo. Listen to them, their hectic, loud and crazy! Ovo, another Italian duo, sound more experimental but are also influenced by metal and noise rock. 
  • The Hidden Cameras at HAU: The Hidden Cameras just released their new record 'Age' and are now on tour presenting it. Fluffy and quirky indie pop with beautiful melodies and songs.

Wednesday
  • Hiss Golden Messenger at Monarch: Yet another folky night at Monarch. Hiss Golden Messenger plays unpretentious singer songwriter acoustic guitar music. He reminds me of a melancholic Herman Düne.
  • Turbostaat + My Kung Fu at Schokoladen: Turbostaat are by now a band that kind of outgrew Schokoladen's capacities when it comes to the audience numbers they attract. However that does not stop them to pay them a visit and do a Schokoladen soli/charity concert. They actually play FOUR nights in a row and have already sold out Schokoladen, Lido and SO36. You might still get tickets for the Bi Nuu show on Thursday but hurry up.
Thursday
  • Thee Irma & Louise + Anaheim at Tiefgrund: A very interesting evening at Tiefgrund. Thee Irma & Louise play dark and a bit psychedelic wave-punk and Anaheim do a mix of folk instruments and hardcore music that they call Doomgrass. 

Saturday
  • Paper Planes + The Wind-Up Robots Killed My Cat at Schokoladen: Paper Planes play fluffy instrumental postrock/indie. If you are into beatiful melodies and poppy playful tunes, this might be your thing. And even though The Wind-Up Robots obviously killed someones cat, they play a very groovy kind of instrumental music. 
Sunday
  • Aidan Baker & Jakob Thiesen + Crystal Shipsss at Ackerstadtpalast: Aidan Baker teaming up with experimental electronic musician Jakob Thiesen could definitely get interesting. Support will be Berlin based lo-fi psychedelic pop project Crystal Shipsss. Check it out.
