Munich Again Thursdays – Mai

We reached the first trimester anniversary! In these last three months, we went through very intimate evenings to a tanzverbot full house, and everything in between. But always, had we an amazing quality of audience and sound trips through a plethora of different universes! Thanks to everybody involved, and this also includes the people that take the time to come over to listen and see!
All the informations for the May nights can be found on Facebook or the Rote Sonne website.

The opening night from the blogger’s point of view

Hello, here’s the blogger again. Long time no see 🙂 . I want to share my impressions on the first Munich Again Thursday yesterday, not from the booker’s point of view, but from the Emilie that watches the Munich Scene from afar, the Emilie that feels a lot of love for the artists that give her healing energy and the audiences that take the time to really listen to them.

Munich Again Thursdays – February

The Munich Scene is not defined by borders, but by people gathering together to touch audiences, here.

The Life Post Alien Disko

Something visible, audible, strong and shaking the landscape. A earthquake in Munich. Or a lightning striking the city, maybe. Nope, this was the Alien Kick, and to this much-needed invader, we wish the warmest welcome and hope it will come back soon.

From trance caused by polyrhythmic melodies to shocked awe in the face of purity and the ecstasy of a burning dancefloor, Alien Disko was a sanctuary of intense emotions. Alien Disko was everything everybody had hoped for and even more. Continue reading “The Life Post Alien Disko”

The (quite literal) point of no return

The overwhelming notion of time slipping through my fingers is gone. Time goes with a slower pace than ever before. Coffee tastes stronger, beer tastes sweeter, and conversations sink into my brain a little deeper.

No more deadline of going back, no more guilt about missing something out (well, there’s always a little guilt left but it comes out of respect and not out of the fear of not being at the right place at the right time).

A conversation in Montreal about the Munich image problem

The debate about the image problem in Munich is extremely interesting, and more than necessary. I strongly recommend to read the initial article, the counter-article, the Keno answer and the follow-up before reading this article.

Yesterday, I sat down in the Montreal Atomic Café with Dennis Kastrup, a friend of mine that also shares his time between Germany and Canada. Dennis is a music journalist that work primarily for radio stations in Berlin. He has followed the image problem debate, and accepted to meet me to continue (publicly this time) our year-long talk about the Munich Scene : a conversation in slightly broken English between an insider and an outsider.
