Berlin duo Me and My Drummer were meant to be at Milla on Monday, but sadly the show’s been cancelled (due to health reasons). The pair met in Tübingen, my favourite city on this planet, where they worked as stage musicians in the theatre, and I am looking forward to the gig when they do make it to Munich.
Another Berlin duo are at the Muffatcafe on Monday. JONAH have received a lot of publicity recently thanks to a Vodafone ad (you’ll know it as soon as you get to the chorus), and if you like balmy neo-folk melodies, you can catch them for 16 €.
Swiss singer-songwriter Sophie Hunger is at the Freiheizhalle on Wednesday, and her music is so warm and peaceful. She sings in French, German and English (she grew up in the UK) and released her latest album Supermoon just last Friday.
Sportfreunde Stiller are playing a sold-out show at Milla on Thursday. The small show is for their fan club and those who were quick enough to snap up a ticket, and if you’ve got tickets, get there early to get a good spot.
On Friday, there’s a Shantel DJ session in Ampere, which sounds like great fun. If you like Balkan sounds, head down there from 10pm to dance your socks off. Tickets cost 12 € on the door.
The annual DOK.fest starts next week, and I’ll write a separate post about what’s on and what looks particularly exciting, but the Pinakothek’s program looks pretty interesting.
From Friday to May 17, DOK.fest are the Pinakothek der Moderne’s guests, showing three documentaries over the ten days. One of them in particular looks fantastic – the Dutch film The Need to Dance focuses on Belgian choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production last year for his work on Babel (Words) and Puz/zle.
On Saturday and Sunday, there’s a very cool Slow Food market on in Sendling. Located in the Maienzeit Caree, the market will run from 11am-7pm over the weekend, and it’s a chance to try lots of local, organic and high-quality produce.
Have a good week, folks!
