While I (Bron) head to London this weekend, Berlin’s reminding us while it’s always good to just stay put right here in the Haupstadt. From Thursday night vibes from Shameless/Limitless & Jaakko Eino Kalevi, to the glam of Berlin Fashion Film Festival and a little mid-week dance the following Wed, there’s more than enough to get around. Bonus extra – the forecast is looking divine.
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.
URBAN SPREE – Everybody loves it!
Our Shameless / Limitless friends are really living up to that limitless part this week, throwing another clever gig our way, this round by way of Jaako Eino Kalevi. Celebrating the release of his debut full length, out June 15 on Weird World / Domino (casual) tonight get into the Fin’s slightly wacky groove with a sure-to-be-vibey live set (that also kicks off his Euro tour). Joining him will be fellow Fin, Long-Sam, St. Petersburg’s Chikiss playing ”some far out MP3s before the live stuff” and local Molly Nilsson, doing the dj thang. You’ll find your tickets at the door.
