Live scene in Berlin April, May, June 2012

A little bit too much is just enough for me.

It is so easy to miss a good party in Berlin just because there are so many posters and flyers around, being over-glued and replaced constantly. Facebook invitations seem to work best, while others spend money on printing.

One of the most welcome parties in Berlin is Gegen, which once a month takes a place in a Kit Kat Club . The Kit KatClub is a night club in Berlin, opened in March 1994 by Austrian pornographic film maker Simon Thaur and his life partner Kirsten Krüger.

Guests are allowed to engage in sexual intercourse openly at the venue. A strict dress codeneeds to be respected in order to get into the Kit KatClub door, most of the time being held by Kirsten herself, her door policy being very strict. The dress code allows fetish, latex, leather, kinky, high style, glamor. The venue consists of three dance floors and an outdoor area with a pool. It is decorated with ultra-violet light and fluorescent color paintings done by the Berlin based painter Der Träumer.

╣GEGEN TITANS╠

Let your weakness take volume.
Be Titan. Be Gegen.

Gegen is a thematic event, usually with some impressive artists performing. It is all about dressing up, being sexual and having a good time. Berlin is still a sin city, just like in 20s.

What’s been described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is in fact the unique work of Justice Yeldham, a maverick musician with an unhealthy obsession with sheets of broken glass. (http://dualplover.com/yeldham/)

And then going louder April 24th in Magnet Club (Kreuzberg, Address: Falckensteinstraße 48, 10997) you can see shoegazers

A Place To Bury Strangers

Seen them once in London, they are pretty OK. Very noisy, energetic, dark, spacious and punky, yet cold and distant. Often compared to Jesus and Mary Chain

For those who are NOT in the mood for Gegen here is a metal piece of cake.

Celeste + kokomo + red apollo

at Cassiopeia

Revaler Straße 99

not sure about hardcore these days, it feels like dead music to me. My preference still goes to post-rock, which is truly close to have exhausted all ides, however I still believe in pioneers Mono and Mogwai
