What’s Up Weekend? 12 – 18 March 2015

SHARE ME:

This Berlin wochenende is all about returning favourites – with the latest instalments of Ja Ja Ja Berlin, Oscillate, and Grounded Theory – the latter of which we have a cheeky handful of guest list spots to giveaway. Recovery and/or indulgence on your mind? On the day of rest, The Breakfast Market is back at Markthalle Neun. It’s about as perfect a weekend as it gets. X

Below are some of the events we are recommending for the week ahead in Berlin. Each of them is either highlighted with a:

Bron loves it! – more electronic, than not.
Lucy loves it! – more indie boy band/ pop vibes/ not techno.
Everyone loves it! – 2.5 words: shit’s ACE and/or edible.

***DISCLAIMER: these aren’t the only discos that are going on – they are just the ones that stand out.

DONNERSTAG

FLUXBAULucy loves it!

Those talented Nordics are at it again with the once-monthly instalment of Ja Ja Ja Berlin happening at FluxBau tonight. Showcasing the best from the better-looking regions of the globe, this 5th edition has feel-good written all over it and will be lead by Icelandic ”80s disco bear’ Berndsen ‘ (no need to read on WE’RE IN), who not only loves the disco but has one of the more radiant beards we’ve seen going around. Really, it’s worth checking out – photos. Joining him will be fresh Danish pop daisies Waldo & Marsha, and the even fresher Hisser, aka Miikka Koivisto of Finnish band Disco Ensemble, in one of his first gigs in this new guise. Kicking off at 20:00, as always this will be a popular one so get there early or do the organised thing and purchase a ticket in advance. While you’re at it, sign-up as a Ja Ja Ja member for frei and nab a cheeky discount. Oh hiya! Se dig der!

FREITAG

STATTBADBron loves it!

One of Berlin’s leading techno parties is back at Stattbad this Freitag abend, and as always has a punchy offering in store to really kick start your weekend. This 32nd edition of the monthly nacht sees the Grounded Theory crew host Monolake for the first time, with the Imbalance Computer Music artist returning to classic live Monolake after a stint focussing on his Lumière show. While reason enough to head north to Wedding alone, the rest of the bill is also all sorts of delicious as he’ll be joined by Berlin-based techno Brit Sigha, GT’s own Henning Baer, Klockworks’ Holländer ROD (who we were intro’d to at last year’s Nachtdigital and were really impressed) and American-bred, Berlin-based Jon Hester, in his second GT appearance. As always it’s a 10/10 kinda affair and definitely worth staying till stumps. Doors at 00:00, 12€ at the door, oder for four lucky Leute….

://ABOUT BLANK Bron loves it!

It’s the return of another ideal Berlin party this Samstag, with Oscillate back at ://about blank for more of their finely picked house and techno thang. This round, catch a live set from Portable / Bodycode  – who’s live sets really are something worth checking out -, Robert Johnson’s Ata (grab a teaser with his Oscillate podcast) and two rounds of live Swedish / Northern Electronics goodness from Abdulla Rashim and Varg. Also along for the ride: a host of party-starting locals, including Kate Miller ( Figure Third), Parasol (Figure Third), Reznik (KEINEMUSIK), Savart (Figure Third) and Klex (beatrausch.fm). Tickets can be purchased on the nacht, in advance via RA (these also come with a sweet little queue jump) or keep an eye out for their flyers in various bars/nice establishments, as these bad boys gift a reduced price entry.

About BRON

Bron writes on all things techno. If there's a party at the club, she is probably there - with fiddy and all the gang. She also likes gluten free bread (because she can't eat wheat) and wine.
