I’m struggling to believe it’s November already – 2015 is just flying by.
The week starts with big bearded folk singer-songwriter Father John Misty playing at Strom. The gig starts at 9:30pm and tickets are a very reasonable 19 €. I had this song on repeat for much of 2015:
On Wednesday, November 4, the Gärtnerplatztheater turns 150. To celebrate, the theatre has invited all of Munich to gather in front of the theatre from 5pm onwards to toast to the old theatre. More information’s available on the Facebook event’s page here.
And on Thursday, The DØ are playing at the Freiheizhalle. This song will give you an Ohrwurm, and I urge you to see them – the duo make the most beautifully catchy folk pop. Tickets are available for just over 20 € here.
The Sound of Munich Now‘s on at Feierwerk on Friday and Saturday, celebrating the best of local music – for free. There are lots of excellent bands playing over the two days, and I’m particularly keen to catch Impala Ray and Monobo Son.
On Saturday, Fink are playing at Backstage (the location’s been moved from the Tonhalle). The Cornwall-born songwriter, producer and DJ Fin Greenall released his latest album Horizontalism on Ninja Tune’s R’COUP’D in May this year, and it’s been highly praised.
The Prater Island is hosting yet another fashion event this weekend – this time, FashionYard is taking over. The event celebrates young designers from Munich and the rest of Europe, and the first 100 visitors to arrive on Saturday and Sunday (from midday onwards) will be presented with an exclusive goodie bag. Oh, and if, like me, you desperately need your eyebrows tending to, Maxvorstadt’s Browery will be on hand to sort you out.
London’s Gengahr round the week off at Milla, supported by Munich band The Capitols. Gengahr are still relatively unknown, but have developed a solid fan base having toured with Alt-J and Wolf Alice recently. They released their debut album A Dream Outside in June, and are currently touring Europe promoting it. FM4 have been playing them a lot recently, and their music’s fun, summery and very energetic.
Have a great week, folks!
