    Looking at the concert list for the next two weeks makes us giggle like little girls. After one more week of CTM events, the month continues festively with great shows day after day.

    Bird song is our favorite tune lately, especially in the afternoon while the sun kisses the cold pavement and makes little squinting eyes shed joyful tears. Soon we will be blasting Vivaldi's "Spring" with all windows wide open, and start complaining about the lack of twee pop in the cold-blooded Berlin...

    Music-wise, in the next two weeks, CTM Festival will clearly steal the attention as the highlight (of the year?) in Berlin (and worldwide?).

    Christmas screams in our ears everywhere we go, and everyone seems to be slowing down with happenings while having a kick out of jingle bell jazz at fairs and markets. But worry not; our slightly starved pre-holiday list is going to grow stronger again in 2015, and until then, enjoy the cold nights at hot parties, and...

    The fallen leaves and cosy autumn colors should warn the bear in you that now is the time to go out and pile up the instagram snaps. Time to cuddle up and hibernate is soon, and you will be more than happy to slide through your photo stack when the winter starts to bite. We recommend to go right away; the week offers...

    Marisa Favretto / Yudi Noor - Recognize Set In Free Edge @ Galerie Christian Ehrentraut  After the main opening on Auguststrasse, I got the impression that I will have to queue to see any show during BAW. Fortunately, people are more into the word 'opening' when it's coupled with the word 'party...
