This week-end in Berlin, I’m going to celebrate the non-snowy streets. Yeah, welcome back heels, go away hunters boots. Finally! Oh my god, life is so exciting.

Saturday let’s go to The Bassy Club to support the rock’n'roll business team, Frank Popp and Miss Nico. Those pals host great parties in town, booking some wicked bands and djing altogether. If you’re into garage punk, raw sixties, psyche, freak beat and rhythm&blues don’t think twice, put your leopard on and your go go shoes to look good on the dance-floor. Former residents in Düsseldorf, the duet moved to Berlin not long ago and are more than busy in da city since then. You’ll find out very soon all the good stuffs to come, if your brain can still take it, or not. Who needs a brain? Dot.

Their UK special night tomorrow promises to be a wild one. The Bacchae will open the fest with some glam punk from Leeds, playing the last show of their German tour. And then ladies, suspense, the Horrors will follow on the turntables. Girl, behave they are british gentlemen (?). Since black is the new red (was it the other way round? I might have heard something ’bout khaki)(whatever I’m not a minger) don’t forget eyeliner and glitters.

Plus, let’s have some drinks at the  Acht Millimeter Bar before, meanwhile and after two doors below. Great booze, great staff, great DJ! (tourists are not invited) (oh gross. ok you can come, but only if you can behave like the regulars)(not).

Support by Fredovitch OneManBand (French Garage Punk not to be missed!), the all mighty King Khan and Mark Sultan are back in town! From love songs to crazy punk beats, they hold your breath during the whole set, their genuine garage rock is hard to describe, inches of country, taste of blues, it feels like there are five dudes on stage. Personality crisis indeed, you cannot stop moving along and do the crab dance, your brain is turned off and you let the craziness overpower your bones. While Mark is smashing his bass drum and tambourine and scratching his guitar with his Sultan pose, singing along with his crooner voice, King Khan goes totally nuts, molesting his guitar like escaped from a mental institute and howling like a psycho bird. How awesome!

The Establishment

No comments

We went to this new Xberg venue* last saturday with Megan and Marina to see The Sun And The Wolf, New Zealand’s dudes based in Berlin: Say Cuzzy Bro! Some stunning psychraw (the words are not from me but do make sense) and definitely not only, the rhythm is real tight and the two guitars ping pong each other playfully and powerfully. They’re able to bring back some stoner feelings in their seventies psychedelic set. Summer of love mixed with modern flair and bitter taste, those pals surely got it. They’ll play at Privat Club – Pücklerstrasse 32, Kreuzberg for the FAVE RAVE Vol.2 and you should bring your butt on it. Maybe if you’re lucky they’ll let you play the tambourine stick. Yay!

The Establishment was fun, since the cops showed up right after the first band played, and we really thought it was over. The second set could not last more than 30 min. Gross. In da place was also a tiny lil red room, classical music running from a nineties ghetto-blaster (?) and a bath tube (seriously), you could hang on there and talk craps, the lights and the music made you feel you were smart (seriously part 2), and beautiful (seriously part 3) and when you pee in the bath tube it turned into gold (?)(but seriously, Phil Collins get out of my body). Well, not sure the place will gonna make it till spring (because of the cops and the neighbors), but the concept wasn’t that bad. Oh, and there were also heart-shaped balloons dancing at the window (no kidding -there was a trick, Peter even found out after some hours staring at them).

Thank you Sarah for letting me steal your great pics! You can find more photos in her blog: Sarah through the looking glass.

* Well, the little square room downstairs was not really what man call venue, since more than 30 min in it made you suffocating (germans again maybe? I really gotta stop this bad jokes or they gonna kick me out the sooner the better). Anyway, the place is nice and the owners are even more.

**I had a thing with brackets today.
