From playing violin at the conservatory to founding one of the most influential punk bands to being a symphonic conductor while extending his band’s style with dub and metal; that is the short version of Jaz Coleman’s history and his band Killing Joke. Friday at Huxley’s.
Die Blockflöte des Todes (~Recorder of Death) is musical comedy at its best. Btw, no one will play a recorder, instead we have a cello and a guitar and the great lyrics by Matthias Schrei – all in German though. Friday in our very own Kulturbrauerei.
Representing the electronic faction this Friday is Antidote from the Netherlands, playing their 90s Acid and Hard-Trance at Griessmuehle.
Lucifer from Sweden is playing classic heavy metal, and they do so Sunday at Cassiopeia.
Therapy? on the other hand might be described as college rock, and that’s all I’m going to say about them, other that they are playing SO36 on Sunday.
A dwing dance with live music to ease out of the weekend? Time Rag Department,sounds great, eh?
Arty in Berlin
Secrets. A Social Phenomenon is the name of a new exhibition at the Communications Museum not far from Potsdamer Platz. If you haven’t been, this is a good opportunity to explore that magnificent building as well as one of the – if not simply the – oldest such museums in the world.
Friends with a books: Art Book Fair Berlin is happening at Hamburger Bahnhof all weekend and the events title tells you exactly what to expect. Most traders are either independent publishers or the artists themselves, so you’re can get some great books, to impress your friends and support potentially starving artists as well.
Other Things to Do in Berlin
FIL is back in Berlin. After an extensive tour, the city’s ultimate ambassador in sillynes, is once again playing Mehringhof again, at least once a month. On Sunday it’s time for the annual halloween-special – only attend if your German is really good.
Absolutely no idea, if they still have tickets, but to get up on the gasometer in Schöneberg during sunset and see how the city lights come up, sounds super-awesome.
