The muses must have been real busy lately inspiring Berlin-based gig poster makers. We ain't no curators, but this here is a damn fine gallery... Feast your eyes even if you are away for the holidays and missing all the good stuff here.
PS. Look for the Easter egg!
(Hint: it's free tickets!)
23.00 Pender Street Steppers + Physical Therapy + Omer + Criese @ Chesters
WHY: Great poster surely means great party, right? We will rely on this method and judge the rest based on the appeal of it. The cutest we have seen in a while! Not that more words are needed, but we will say anyway: expect some dancey summery easy breezy vibes for the chilled party crowd this Thursday at Chesters, with Pender Street Steppers, Physical Therapy, Omer and Criese.

21.00 Charlie Megira + Rancune + The Diegos @ Westgermany
WHY: Charlie Megira + Rancune + The Diegos sound something like 60s rock'n'roll + 80s synth-wave + rockgaragepoppowerpoppunkrocknroll. Great combo playing Friday night at our favorite Westgermany, and we even have 2 tickets to give away -- follow our Facebook feed for more info.

21.00 Casual Rodeo: Fyoelk + Lolito + Wilted Woman @ Bei Ruth
WHY: Go this way for „night of loopy noichno confused bzzcore ding dong house. 4 true rodeoheads only.“ – whatever that really means. „50% laser poodle 100% bass tumbleweed (Fyoelk), „vip airline terminal boudoir techno“ (Lolito), „handy ringtone trance remix“ (Wilted Woman)… If sceptical, click the links and give it a hear, it all sounds pleasantly experimental and very very good.

23.00 Apostille + Happy Meals + Molly Nillson + Better Person @ Sameheads
WHY: Apostille is the recording and performing project of Michael Kasparis. Having started as a home-damaged pop music, Apostille has grown into a live-wire synth punk prospect.

20.00 Virginia Wing + Slow Steve @ ACUD MACHT NEU
WHY: Virginia Wing draw influence from the radiophonic sounds of Broadcast, the cosmic wonder of Cluster and the rhythmic propulsion of This Heat. Their debut album Measures Of Joy encompasses spoken-word passages, brooding electronics and musique concrete influences to create songs that are at once immediate and truly strange. Slow Steve will spice things up with tantra pop, sexy beats, french accent and hit singles karaoke with instruments.

21.00 Shameless/Limitless: An Evening With Antoine93 + COUNTRY + Ben Jackson @ Loophole
WHY: Montreal's finest (or funniest): Antoine93, making "strange art pop that makes the absolute most out of the multitude of modern tools at his disposal", and COUNTRY - "sleaze-wave savants and culinary MVPs" - making their Berlin debut. All that in a DJ set sandwich by Ben Jackson, in the popular Neukölln club Loophole.
