FUNKHAUS BERLIN – Everybody loves it!
Bite Club are luring us out to Rummelsburg this Sonntag with BBQ’d thangs, open air tunes and one pretty incredible Spree-side setting. Following on from a similar event last year The BIG Bite Club BBQ & Legotek Open Air will include guest grill masters showcasing international barbecue styles, from Thailand to the deep south alongside an open air from locally based Legotek Records. They’ll also be showing the EM quarter final on a “super big screen'” – kein Stress. Vendors for the day will include SPICE SPICE BABY, PIGNUT BBQ, Khwan, Tommi’s Burger Joint, GORDON and more. And on top of all of that this all takes place at Funkhaus Berlin, which other than being down the cleaner end of the Spree is also a pretty incredible building formerly housing GDR radio – and worth a visit on it’s own. This is where schön Sonntag abends are at.

SOUNDCLOUD HQ – Everybody loves it!
Celebrating their first birthday, Salt + Sass, returns to SoundCloud’s HQ next mid-week and we’re more than a little bit excited for the next round of celebrating and connecting with kick ass femmes in the music industry here in Berlin. A free event, with support from SoundCloud and Electronic Beats, the 2016 theme of this event series is “women who work together” – which involves inviting two women who work together in electronic music to a conversation moderated by Electronic Beats. Following a series of inspiring conversations so far, guests for this edition will be Sasha Perera – a singer, songwriter, producer and DJ, known as both Perera Elsewhere and for her dj sets, Mother Perera alongside Jen Ferrer, the manager of the Friends of Friends label on which Sasha released on. With the doors opening at 18:30, the conversation will kick off at 19:30 however you’re encouraged to stick around afterwards for drinks on SoundCloud and food supplied by Deliveroo. Hot tip! The free tickets for this ALWAYS sell out, so snapping yours up via this link is highly recommended. This is your pick of the mid-week.
