Caravan Palace @ Heimathafen Neukoelln - Berlin(DE)

Caravan Palace@Heimathafen Neukoelln - Berlin 07/02/16

Some days before Anja - a good friend of us - invited me via Facebook for the Caravan Palace gig at the Heimathafen Neukoelln.

I knew already one song of this Electro swing band which was in one of Chico Alves podcasts at Podomatic - Outro Mundo 29 - so we decided to go there.

I bought two online-tickets for me and my wife.

On the day we met with Anja before the location where a lot of people were already waiting.

It took some minutes before we could go inside the venue. The hall was already filled with a lot of people.

We ordered some beer and were prepared for the gig.



Steve Hackett @ UdK - Berlin(DE)

Steve Hackett@UdK - Berlin 13/09/15

Already in May I ordered two tickets at the German Gensis-Fanclub for this show, so we got two seats in the second line almost in the middle of the stage.

Even though it was mid-September the weather was still fine so we took the bike to go there and arrived at the UdK 10 min before the show should start. I Never was there before. A theatre-clock was ringing so the rest of the audience should know it would start in the next minutes. It was not possible to take something to drink inside so we took our seats. As in a theatre the doors were closed and the show started immediately.

The band members came out - keyboard player Roger King, drummer Gary O’Toole, sax and flute player Rob Townsend, and bassist and guitarist Roine Stolt - also singer Nad Sylvan but he were more active later on - they took their places and started to play. With the first notes also the lightshow started which didn't fit to my wife's eyes - especially the red and white light - but she took it herolike. Steve Hackett started with a song from his new record "Wolflight". After this he introduced himself that the show is splitted in two parts. The first part would be from his solo records and the second part with Genesis songs which weren't played very often at the Genesis shows. I was excited which songs this would be.



The Sunpilots @ Culture Container - Berlin(DE)

The Sunpilots @ Culture Container Berlin 17/03/15

Invited some weeks before via Facebook by The Sunpilots themselves, I tried to activate some people for this gig - especially my brother in law from Finland who was in Berlin for some days with a couple of his friends. The day before they saw Paul Simon and Sting at the O2 World - but no one liked to go out at this day.

So I went there by bus (same direction as the Yaam Club). On the way I tried again to activate another friend who lives nearby for this event, but he was not that spontaneous.

I arrived there at 9pm and enterd the area - a place near the river Spree - flats made out of used wood and windows and an old ship-container where the gig should happen.



Groundation @ Yaam Club - Berlin(DE)

Groundation @ Yaam Club / Berlin 31/10/14

It was Halloween weekend and a lot of people were dressed up in costumes this night. I left home at maybe 9 pm by bus so it took me almost near the Yaam Club. On the way I tried to reach a friend by phone if he would like to come with me but there was no answer.

When I arrived at the venue there was a long queue before the entrance. I went to the front and asked if I could get in because I should be listed on the guestlist but the bouncer showed me the way back to the line. So it took maybe 15 - 20 min before I passed the entrance. On the cashpoint I asked for checking the guestlist for my name. After a while they found it and I could get in.



The Sunpilots @ Privatclub - Berlin(DE)

The Sunpilots @ Privatclub / Berlin 24/07/14

As they announced it already several weeks and the days before, this was the farewell gig of The Sunpilots here in Berlin. They will leave EU in September for a 3 month US-Tour and no one can say if it will take only 3 months.

There were two other bands / artists playing this day so I asked Raj which band will play at what time. He told me that they were scheduled for 11 pm so there was enough time for my wife and me to get prepared for it (back from work at 8 pm, some relaxing time, shower ...).



Dub FX @ Nordhafen - Berlin(DE)

Dub FX @ Nordhafen
Berlin 20/07/14

What a weekend!!! Dub FX in a double pac.

First this hot performance @SO36 the day before and than the other day poor energetic fun at this 3 hours streetshow @Nordhafen - including jam session with other street artists.

During the SO36-gig Dub FX told the audience that they will make a street show the other day at 5 pm so I was looking for more infos when I was back at home again.

The streetshow should happen under a bridge near Nordhafen - never have been there before. I came there half an hour before it should start. I found it immediately because sound could already be heard from there.

There were some people (maybe 20 - 30) sitting around this area but I was not sure if they were there because of the streetshow. I was looking for a shadowed place and a good look to the installations. I asked some other people if they were here because of Dub FX but they were surprised to hear about it.



Dub FX @ SO36 - Berlin(DE)

Dub FX @ SO36
Berlin 19/07/14

It was so hot this day but this gig was even more hottter than the weather today.

Tired in the afternoon I slept until 7 pm and I was than in hurry to get there just in time. It was short before 8 pm when I arrived at SO36. After a quick get in I ordered first a big beer (Kristallweizen) and than went to the front of the stage - line 7 or 8. Music - drum and bass was playing in the background, sweating in the almost full concert hall. We had to wait until 8:15 pm before they were coming on stage - Cade on guitar, Andy V. on the keyboards and saxophone and Mr. Dub FX.



KRS-One @ Yaam Club - Berlin(DE)

KRS-One @ Yaam Club / Berlin 11/06/14

It was Monday when I noticed that KRS-One would be in town on Wednesday. First thought "Why always on Wednesdays - I will miss once again my Volleyball-training" but than I saw it would start at 10 pm so there might be enough time to manage both.

We stopped our training at 9:50 pm - as always - and a quarter after 10 pm I entered the Yaam area which is located near the "Ostbahnhof" of Berlin directly at the Spree-river - never was there before.



Peter Gabriel @ Waldbuehne - Berlin(DE)




Posted: 2014-05-29 11:24:33

Peter Gabriel @Waldbuehne / Berlin

Already in November last year I ordered two tickets via the German Genesis Fanclub so there was nothing more to do than to wait for the Big Time - knowing that also Petra and Sven would be there.

We tried to manage where to meet at the Waldbuehne but when we arrived there - the car was almost 1 km away - we knew that the other both would come 40 min. later so my wife and I went in and tried to find a good place which was found after some more minutes on the middle left blocks with a good view to the stage and video installation.



Little Spencer @ Fincan - Berlin(DE)

Little Spencer @Fincan / Berlin

Some days before this gig of "Little Spencer" I realized that "The Sunpilots" were back again in Berlin and that they also will come to the location. So I would see Raj again and the two new guys (Adil and Kay).

I was there 1/2 n hour later than schedule plan said, they already began - it was in an extra room of the Fincan. I went in there, everyone was listening thoughtfully - I saw Raj sitting in the first line. Bob recognized me after some seconds and smiled into my direction.

They made a short break and I talked with all of them about the good old times and what will come in the future (US-Tour).

They played some more songs so it was almost 11pm when I went back to the underground.
