Musik   Fourtrack On Stage: The Blue Funz (Experimental Folk/UK/CAN) + White West (New Wave, Berlin)

+ DJs Glitzi Glitzi / Sibsi Sibsi (Post Folk/Hits/Hip Hop)
The Blue Funz (UK/Kanada)
The Blue Funz are an international musical collective made up of Daniel Potter (a lock-keeper on the River Thames), Alexander Borland (a Scottish whelk hunter), and Soren Brothers (a lake scientist from Ontario). Although their roots are in the 1990s on Scotland’s Isle of Iona, where the musicians met, today they are based out of Canada, Scotland, and England, meeting only to play music when the stars align. Named after a colour-shifting spore cloud of puffball origins, the Funz have developed their own mythological universe over the past decades, featuring recurrent folk heroes Mulagi and the Eye. When not singing the virtues of Mulagi, the Funz make music for the Devon Folklore Tapes (Boomkat Records) and Man meets Bear(Heretical Objects Cooperative, Label Fantastic). Their latest album, Songs for Ed Ricketts, was released as part of the Wist Ed. series (featuring artists such as Nadja and Nick Krgovich, of Mount Eerie), and comes with a 24-page zine including the original works of Berlin-based artist, Manfred Naescher. Sharing the stage with the likes of Jeffrey Lewis and Karl Blau, they have toured far-flung regions such as Morocco, Japan, the Balkans, and across North America, to spread their word.

“A beautiful album for the cold days coming that should please those who like Circulatory System, Leafes and Phil Elverum” – With a Messy Head

“A whole lot of truly amazing songs” - Disagreement

“Shamanic unit adventurous domestic debut as The Black Funz” – Guggenheim House, Japan (Google translation)

White West (Berlin)
White West is a band from Berlin.

Three imaginary boys, the new new wave.
Troubled kids, dancing on graves.

Their skin reflects the neon light.
Their hair looks really great at night.

It’s true their hearts are dark and lost.
Black leather jackets, boots and gloves.

So when the last good spirit went and left …
The sun sets in the white white west.

Musik   M:Soundtrack: Brokof (bln) w/ guest Random Willson + Hold Your Horses (bln)

Thursdays = Good Music


“I was sitting out on my balcony staring down at my naked feet. I guess I'm not so bright, no I don't shine no light.” Set neither inside nor outdoors the opening line of second album Side By Side from Berlin's BROKOF sums up a band whose music shifts between observation of the world and self-reflection. Should we take part or hold back? Join in or look on? These are the questions of witnesses torn between the temptations of urban living and the need to actually contemplate life and its sensibilities.

BROKOF deliver the soundtrack of an anxious generation perpetually stuck between giving up and breaking out, singing with beautiful solemn sadness about encounters and fleeting moments of truth, hinting at rage born from the loss that occurs when one moves in life and about what one has to gain when there is nothing expected. Their intimate, authentic tone makes their songs easy to befriend. Sometimes affable, sometimes rocking, sometimes encouraging, their song's heart beats to a life- affirming rhythm, while eponymous front man and songwriter Fabian Brokof dwells languidly on those subjects which move him as they do many others. Where is my place in a world ever more hostile? How do I break down walls of disinterest? How can I get people to commit? How can I get closer to a love I can live? Miles away from irony and with awareness of the obstacles blocking the way, he asks himself tough questions but refuses simple answers.

BROKOF are Fabian Brokof (vocals, guitar), Arne Bergner (guitar, piano), Rocco Weise (bass) and, since December 2012, Puya Shoary (drums). Sorry Gilberto vs. Brokof was the first release on the band’s Goldrausch Records label, a joint EP with fellow band Sorry Gilberto (Berlin). 2010 brought A/B, another EP released as a 10-inch vinyl, followed by debut
LP Softly, Softly, Catchee Monkey. In 2012 the band released the LP Side By Side.

*The Band is currently working on their third studio album.

Hold Your Horses 
//  Boot Skootn’ Outlaw Honkey Tonk  // Bln

When you get up Sunday morning to heat up an emergency can of hangover menudo soup, walk over to the stereo and search for that one tune that will make you feel better, Hold Your Horses’ version of "I’m a Ramblin’ Man" will most likely be on your shortlist. With interpretations of outlaw country originals, channeling the spirit of country music’s inspired 70’s, Hold Your Horses extend this tradition to your local road house.

From rowdy dance floor stompers like "London Homesick Blues", to Buck Owens' yearning “`Together Again”, this 5 piece unit combines its far flung backgrounds into a compelling blend of the American vernacular. Heavy vibrato pedal steel riffs, with chicken’ picking’ guitar licks and a power rhythm section are guaranteed to rumble the barn doors of the hinges by the end of the night.

Musik   Sven Panne + Rüdiger Bierhorst aka Panne&Bierhorst (Liedermaching//Monsters Of...)

doors: 20.00 start: 21.00

Rüdiger Bierhorst
kennen viele als Mitglied der "Monsters of Liedermaching" und lieben ihn wegen seiner mal traurigen und mal vor Wortwitz fast platzenden Alltagsgeschichten. Und natürlich wegen seines einzigartigen Gitarrenpickings, das Imitatoren kategorisch ausschließt: nur Bierhorst kann Bierhorst spielen.
Bierhorst ist etwas Besonderes. Er ist ironisch, schmutzig, sarkastisch, genial-witzig und tiefgründig. Ein Fußvolk-Entertainer, der sich klammheimlich in die Herzen der Zuhörer schleicht und im Regelfall für immer und ewig besetzt.

Sven Panne, Liedermacher aus Hamburg, der inzwischen nicht nur dort fast Kultstatus genießt, spielt Klavier mit Händen und Füßen. Dazu singt er seine charmanten deutschen Texte über Liebe und Leid, Träume und Sehnsüchte - und das mit einer Stimme, die so klingt, als wäre sie ihre eigene Zerreißprobe zwischen Jubelschrei, verzweifelter Traurigkeit und aufmüpfiger Verschmitztheit.
Nicht zuletzt durch seine Gastauftritte bei der Ton Steine Scherben Family in der Hamburger Fabrik und der Berliner UfA-Fabrik hat er sich auch in die Herzen der Rio Reiser/Scherben-Fans gesungen.

Miteinander an einem Abend sind Panne & Bierhorst ein Feuerwerk der Kunst des "Liedermachings". Eine musikalische Rakete nach der anderen wird gezündet, wenn sie zusammen auf der Bühne sitzen, sich gegenseitig anpeitschen und feiern. Nichts wird sein, wie es vorher war. Sie zelebrieren ihre Auftritte und lassen nie einen Zweifel daran aufkommen, dass sie sich selber genau so genießen, wie es die Leute vor der Bühne tun. Sie verwandeln die Orte ihrer gemeinsamen Konzerte zu den schönsten und besten Plätzen, an denen man sich aufhalten kann und entlassen ihr Publikum stets ein wenig glücklicher, als es gekommen ist.
