Pussy Riot bleibt!

Mayday. Skalitzerstr. All rights reserved by Katja Avant Hard

It seems that Berliners make the loudest Mayday in comparison to other countries.

The entire Skalitzerstr. gets blocked from the public transport, only yellow carriages keep running above. Thousands of people fill in the streets around Kotti to see the demonstration, eat and drink, but the most importantly to enjoy the endless amount of stages and bars with loud music. Oranienstr. gets the priority for the main stages, and is busy as hell, people constantly move backs and forward, and dancing seems almost impossible. The food is twice more expensive, and the beer sold by Turks is not only expensive but also is being poured to a small plastic glass, which means you only get a HALF of the bottle. Of course, it is YOUR fault you did not buy a box of beer the day before.

I should admit this is a very tiring process, trying to find a stage with the music you like and where there is not so packed. All in all I was upset with the Oranienstr. stages, even though they were offering everything from African drums to hard core, it mostly was just boring. The only stage which I enjoyed for some sort of originality was “the support of Pussy Riot” (Pussy Riot is the Russian punk group which is currently in prison for singing the indecent song in the church). Both DJs were wearing a soviet t-shirt with the knitted masks the girls from the band normally wear.

I think Skalitzerstr. totally rocked with its open bars, bringing much better tunes to all electronic and hip-hop lovers. And the beauty moment came when the sky got really dark,but the sun stayed anyway.. and then it started raining… With +27 it felt extremely good. Police was boiling in their costumes and mutant boots, while Gorlitzer park was lying on the grass enjoying the grass.

I ended my Mayday on Weserstr. with bearded Dans – Analogik who were sharing some good vodka with the audience. Hell yeah, gypsy tronica makes you really move! Great gnomes and atmos!

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!

    • thanks a lot, you are very kind.

      i write things when they are fresh, when i see something i put it down immediately.
      when i write about a particular topic – i do a research. people like facts. and i do it for myself as much as for others..
      i try to be short, i usually never finish reading long posts/articles.i do not follow any rules, i hate them. The beginning though is very important, if the 1st two sentences are boring, people are not gonna read it.
      Quotes are good, they tend to put dots the i.
