It’s that time of year where there’s so much on, it’s hard to know where to start.
On Monday, there’s a free screening of Finding Vivian Maier at the Amerika Haus. I completely missed it in the cinemas, but so many people have told me it’s a very worthwhile documentary, and having thoroughly enjoyed the Amerika Haus’ 2011 Vivian Maier exhibition, I’m keen to see it soon.
There are plenty of gigs on Monday too – Motörhead are playing a sold-out concert at Zenith, Augustines are back at the Freiheiz for their second gig at the venue this year, promoting their eponymous new album, and London’s The Boxer Rebellion are at the Atomic. Grammy award winning Robert Glasper will be at Strom on Monday night with the Robert Glasper Experiment – a musical adventure exploring the fusion of jazz and hip-hop.
There’s a cool vernissage at the Provisorium on Tuesday. Phil has been sketching people he sees on Munich’s transportation system, bars and clubs, and has already filled 150 Moleskine books with 20,000 sketches. His plan is to sketch everybody living in Munich, at some point. The exhibition will feature his work, and Phil will be busy sketching those who attend the vernissage.
On Wednesday, Gramatik is at the Ampere. I love the Slovenian’s Hit That Jive mix, and the gig’s sure to be worth the 22 € ticket.
Popular Austrian duo KLANGKARUSSELL are next door, at the Muffathalle on Wednesday. They’re not my cup of tea, but they’re popular among friends. If you’re keen, tickets cost 27 € on the door.
The incredible Angus and Julia Stone are at the TonHalle on Thursday. Every single concert they play seems to be sold-out months in advance, and I never manage to get a ticket. If you also spotted the gig far too late, comfort yourself with this beautiful rendition of You’re The One That I Want:
From Friday to Sunday, Forum Vini is taking place in the north of the city, at the MOC Veranstaltungscenter. It’s the wine fair’s thirtieth birthday, and alongside a huge variety of wines, there will be a craft beer bar available. Tickets cost 15 € and can be bought in advance via München Ticket.
On Saturday, Interim will take place in Harry Klein. Sunday, November 16 is Remembrance Day, and clubs have to stop playing music by 2am. So the show’s starting early, at 8pm. DJs COEO will play alongside Andre Dancekowski, and artist Kerstin Rothkopf will exhibit her photography. Entrance is free until 10pm, thereafter it costs 6 €.
There’s a cool event going on at Wine on the Rocks on Saturday, celebrating Restaurant Day. They’re offering a four-course meal and you pay as much as you like – what’s left after covering costs is donated to charity. Sign up for the event here.
Also on Saturday, Dutch artist Blaudzun will be performing at the Atomic. He released his fourth studio album, Promises of No Mans Land earlier this year, and it reached number one in the Dutch charts.
There’s a Scottish ceilidh at the Wirtshaus am Bavariapark on Saturday, filled with ceilidh dancing, a raffle, whisky, dinner and bagpipes. Entrance costs 16 € (14 € if you book in advance) and more information can be found here.
And if none of that takes your fancy, Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner, for which Timothy Spall won a Palme d’Or for best actor earlier this year, is showing in the cinemas at the moment. Focused on the eccentric J.M.W. Turner, the drama explores his sexuality, his relationship with his father and his art. For the full list of showtimes, click here.
