The start of February sees quite a few sold-out shows – evidently people were buying tickets generously over Christmas.
Here’s another sold-out gig – Jake Bugg is at the Technikum on Monday. He’s only 23 and has already released four studio albums – and has appeared on a great many late night TV shows, boosting his fame. His most recent album, Hearts That Strain, was released in September last year and received positive reviews.
Here’s a throwback – Stereophonics are playing a sold-out show at Backstage on Tuesday. They’ll be supported by singer-songwriter Alex Francis.
Benjamin Laub – aka Grieves – is at the Ampere on Wednesday. The Seattle-based rapper released Running Wild, his fifth studio album, last year, and is currently touring Europe to promote it. Tickets cost 21 € on the door and he’ll be supported by Raz Simone.
Open Stage is on in Lost Weekend on Thursday, so if you fancy taking to the stage with your guitar/reading a poem, head down there for 8pm. You need to register in advance if you want to perform, all of the details are on the Facebook event page.
Munich-born-and-bred artist Anna McCarthy is exhibiting at SPERLING for the second time from Friday until 24 March, and the big event of Friday night is Khalid at the Muffathalle – he’s playing a sold-out show. Not bad for a nineteen-year-old.
There are a few tickets left for Romeo & Juliet at the Nationaltheater on Friday, if you fancy the ballet. The tickets that are left are standing spots – so be prepared to be on your feet for three hours.
On Saturday, Ritournelle is taking place in the Kammerspiele – featuring Modeselektor but with half a dozen other acts performing too. It starts at 8pm but goes on until 6am Sunday morning, giving you plenty of time to party. Tickets can be bought for 25 € each, here.
Have a good week, folks.
