Fete de la Musique in Berlin!

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Music Berlin (c) Barbara SiggeThe festival for live music, all around town!

today summer officially started, the weather is nice and it is weekend! A lot of cool events are awaiting you this summer.
One of the nicest music festivals that takes place every year on the longest day of the year is the Fete de la Musique!

What is so special about this festival is, it´s totally for free and really all around the city! It is an open air festival and luckily today the weather is perfect for that!

 

Apart from the bands playing at stages across the city, during the festival street musicians are allowed to spontaneously play their acoustic songs on any street corner. So go out on the street tonight, bring a couple of beers and a couple of friends and let yourself be entertained by musicians from all kinds of different music genres.
Close to the EastSeven Hostel you will find the Fete de la Musique at the Mauerpark, at Bassy Cowboy club and at the Kulturbrauerei (FranzzClub).
The festival starts at 4pm, and will approximately end at 10pm….after this there will be after parties at many different locations….this is the famous fete de la nuit, in Berlin, the city that never sleeps

Have a closer look at the programm and see who is playing where and when, at the hand out at the reception, or at the Fete de la Musique homepage.

For more information on what to see and do in Berlin please read the hostel blog or ask our local staff at the reception!

Hope to welcome you soon at the EastSeven Berlin Hostel!

 


Im Dunkeln ist gut munkeln: Top 10 Ausgehtips Berlin

Thursday, September 20th, 2012
party in Berlin

party in Berlin

10 Orte an denen es sich besonders gut munkeln lässt!!


Hier eine Auswahl von Orten, Clubs, Kneipen und Parks die von mir ausgesucht wurden und die ich euch für dunkle Stunden empfehlen kann. Da man nicht immer ein der gleichen Laune ist, habe cih versucht möglichst breitgefächert an die Sache ranzugehen. Viel Spaß!

 
1) Kims Bar
Beton, Stahl und der Rest ist in einfachem Weiß gehalten. Kims ist ein minimalstische Kneipe die viele Menschen anzieht, die unbekümmert und unprätentiös an der Bar sitzen und gute Musik hören möchten. Die Lage bedingt, dass nicht allzu viele Menschenhorden dort einfallen um sich auffällig laut zu benehmen. Entfernung vom Hostel in Prenzlauer Berg: 7 Gehwegminuten
2) Weinerei
Ein Klassiker für Weintrinker. Trinken und bezahlen soviel man möchte, immer nach dem Ehrlichkeitsprinzip. Bezahlt wird also immer nur so viel wie man denkt. Wein öffnet ja bekanntermaßen die Seele, was zum Munkeln anregt.
Entfernung vom Hostel: 3 Gehwegminuten
3) Birkenwäldchen Mauerpark
Nachts kommt man einfach an dieser Institution nicht vorbei. Hinter dem mauerpark versteck befindet sich das wohl romantischste Stück Baumensemble Ostberlins. Ich habe da sogar schon fantastische Jazzkonzerte mitten in der Nacht gehört. Unbedingt an einem lauen Sommerabend mit Lieblingsmenschen besuchen. Entfernung vom Hostel: 10 Gehwegminuten
4) Wasserturm
Wunderschön gelegen, mitten im Prenzlauer Berg. Von der Anhöhe aus hat man einen sehr guten Blick auf die Stadt und wird selber aber nicht sofort erkannt. Meine Empfehlung: Boulekugeln und Wein mitnehmen. Entfernung vom Hostel: 3 Gehwegminuten
5) Der Platz an dem mal der Palast der Republik stand
Wenn ihr nach einem langen Tag auf den Beinen einfach mal nicht weiter laufen möchtet, kann ich euch diese Wiese empfehlen. Die Wiese ist riesig und mitten in der Stadt gelegen. Lustigerweise scheint niemand diesen Ort zu bemerken, dabei ist er mitten in der Stadt. Ihr könnt also ungestört das machen was ihr am liebsten tut. Entfernung vom Hostel: 20 Gehwegminuten

6) Salon zur wilden Renate
Fantastisch geeignet um sich für die ganze Nacht, am besten zusammen, zu verlieren. Ein Club in einem normalen Wohnhaus bietet die Vorteile einer Riesen-WG, incl. Garten und, haltet euch fest, Labyrinth. Entfernung vom Hostel: ca. 30 Minuten mit der S-Bahn.
7) Sisyphos
Ähnlich wie die Renate, allerdings noch weitläufiger und eher mit Fabriketagencharme. Es gibt hier neben den obligatorischen Sofas und Autowracks zum Verstecken spielen auch einen See. Ein phantastischer Ort um die ganze Nacht zusammen zu verbringen. Entfernung vom Hostel: ca. 45 Minuten mit der S-bahn – der Weg lohnt sich aber.
8.) Palomabar
Meine Lieblingsbar. Gute Musik, gute Leute, gute Bedienung. Aber das Beste an der Location ist wohl die Aussicht. Mitten in Kreuzberg auf dem Kotti blickend kann man das Großstadtleben an einem vorbeiziehen sehen. Einmal drin kann man sich entscheiden ob man tanzen, trinken oder einfach aus dem Fenster schauen möchte. Entfernung vom Hostel: ca. 30 Minuten mit der S-Bahn.
9) Schwarz Sauer

Ein Bar und eine Institution. Selten wurde ich so fachmännisch bedient. Je später die Stunde, desto interessanter die Gäste.Bleibt länger, das färbt ab ;) Entfernung vom Hostel: 10 Gehwegminuten
10) Tamlinie M10
Ich muss zugeben, das ist eine ungewöhnliche Empfehlung. Wer will schon freiwillig Tramfahren? Da ihr aber bei eurem Berlinbesuch sowieso einmal diese Linie nehmen werdet, (verbindet Friedrichshain und Prenzlauer Berg) werde ich euch schon mal einstimmen. Wenn eine Linie von ihren Benutzern missbraucht wird dann diese. Es liegt nun mal daran, dass sie zwei der am meist bewohnten Bezirke verbindet. Vor allem am Wochenende ist das Durchschnittsalter mit ziemlicher Sicherheit nicht höher als 22. Nicht selten ist der Fahrer der einzige ohne Bierflasche in der Hand.

4. Exhibition @ C/O Berlin–> Ron Galella . Paparazzo Extraordinaire

Last call, exhibition is till 26 February 2012

“If someone says ‘no photos!’ then I try not to take any more. However, before he says that I take as many as I can. That’s the game”. Ron Galella

A paparazzo hunt is cunning, harsh and frequently ends painfully. In the worst case bloodily—including broken jaws and lost teeth. For Ron Galella and his undercover activities, no effort or risk was too great. He proceeded like a detective in order to catch the celebrities in the right moment, patient, persistent, shifty. Whether it was Jacqueline Kennedy, Marlon Brando, Greta Garbo, Andy Warhol, Sean Penn, Robert Redford, Muhammad Ali, Madonna, Mick Jagger or Audrey Hepburn—he managed to get them all in front of his lens. His pictures are snapshots rather than portraits. Spontaneous, not staged, and as a result extremely authentic.

On the occasion of the Berlinale, C/O Berlin will show approximately 140 black/white photographs by Ron Galella.

5. Exhibition @ KW Institute for Contemporary Art

“YOU KILLED ME FIRST The Cinema of Transgression  19.02. – 09.04.2012″
Auguststraße 69
D-10117 Berlin

Karen Finley, Tessa Hughes-Freeland, Richard Kern, Lung Leg, Lydia Lunch, Kembra Pfahler, Casandra Stark, Tommy Turner, David Wojnarowicz, Nick Zedd

There will be blood, shame, pain and ecstasy, the likes of which no one has yet imagined.
Nick Zedd

Nightmarish scenarios of violence, dramatic states of mind, and perverse sexual abysses – the films of the Cinema of Transgression that were consciously aimed at shock, provocation, and confrontation, bear witness to an extraordinary radicality. In the 1980s a group of filmmakers from the Lower East Side in New York went on a collision course with the conventions of American society. Transcending all moral or aesthetic boundaries, the low budget films reveal social hardship met with sociopolitical indifference. Sometimes shot with stolen camera equipment, the films contain strident analyses of life in the Lower East Side defined by criminality, brutality, drugs, AIDS, sex, and excess.

Even though the movement has remained largely unknown, the Cinema of Transgression has been a significant influence for later generations of artists.

YOU KILLED ME FIRST at KW Institute of Contemporary Art in Berlin is the first exhibition on the Cinema of Transgression.

Entry only over 18 years

6. Go out for Dinner, there is a fantastic Vegan Food Restaurant closeby our cozy Hostel in Berlin

It is called KOPPS and is located at the Linienstrasse 94, 10115 Berlin
They serve typical German dishes, but everything is vegan!

7.Berlin Wall documentation center

The Berlin Wall Memorial is the central memorial site of German division, located in the middle of the capital. Situated at the historic site on Bernauer Strasse, it will eventually extend along 1.4 kilometers of the former border strip. The memorial contains the last piece of Berlin Wall with the preserved grounds behind it and is thus able to convey an impression of how the border fortifications developed until the end of the 1980s. The events that took place here together with the preserved historical remnants and traces of border obstacles on display help to make the history of Germany’s division comprehensible to visitors.

4. Live Music at Bassy Cowboy Club
On Saturday the 17th of February The Mokkers + The Purcells (Garage, Rock’n’Roll, Rockabilly, Postpunk)
DJ (club): Johnny No (50s & 60s mashed potatoes, rockin’ soul, garage-beat, rock’n’roll, rockin’ blues)
DJ (lounge): Mohair Sam (wild rock’n’roll, pounding blues, obscure garage, southern soul, new orleans r’n’b)

The Mokkers sind eine All-Girl-Band aus Berlin. Seit ihrer Gründung im Jahre 2007 spielen sie sich beeinflusst vom Sound der 60er Jahre von der Garage hinauf in die Herzen dieser Stadt. Doch nicht nur Garage, sondern auch andere Genres wie Rockabilly, Blues und Postpunk inspirieren die vier Mädchen. Handgemacht, tanzbar, charmant.

The Purcells:
Going into pop 60’s, psychedelic direction lead by inspired melodies, The Purcells deliver powerful rock’n’roll on any of their appearance and laid down on the vinyl, 9 of their gems, as a Mini-Album dealing with love issues, smell of females, generation gaps, wet dreams, romanticism, hard times, guess games and wonder cats kingdom.

5. Visit the Neue Nationalgalerie
Following Exhibition is on from now till- Late 1. Quarter 2013
Divided Heaven.
1945 – 1968. The Collection. Neue Nationalgalerie

After ‘Modern Times. The Collection 1900-1945′, the second instalment in the showing of the National Gallery’s collection of 20th-century art will go on display in November 2011.

Germany’s ‘economic miracle’ and the building of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Crisis and Vietnam War, Sputnik and Apollo, Kennedy and Mao-stark contrasts, entrenched positions and clear fronts mark the eventful years between 1945 and 1968. Fine art from this period was significantly influenced by the atmosphere of the ‘Cold War’ and the political ideologies connected with it. In art, two major paths essentially separated East and West, the figurative and abstraction. The West held aloft the open structure of abstract or ‘informal’ art as a symbol of freedom. And it was certainly no coincidence that the pop art that followed it arose in the major capitals of the West, where the phenomena of mass production and a rising tide of consumer culture were everywhere to be seen. In the Eastern Block, by contrast, socialist realism became the prevailing trend and a defining basis for all developments in the art that came after it. In all of this, the individual became the point by which all things were measured, artists made the ‘human condition’ the core focus of their work.

Under the title ‘Divided Heaven’ (echoing the novel by Christa Wolf), the New National Gallery introduces us to the key figures from this epoch. In its focus, however, the exhibition deliberately looks beyond barriers, geopolitical and artistic, and concentrates instead on universal artistic ideas, held by both camps at once. At the heart of ‘Divided Heaven’ stand the international disparities: the juxtaposition of styles and art forms, the contemporaneity of the non-contemporaneous.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Sparkassen Finanzgruppe..

 
Enjoy your visit to Berlin! Love from the youth hostel in Berlin, EastSeven!!!

Berlin’s Top 5 Music Venues

Monday, October 31st, 2011


This was a difficult list to compile on account of the vast, vast, vast number of quality and iconic music venues in a city brimming with artistic flair and vibrancy. Nevertheless after scouring the streets, leaving no stone unturned, here is a round-up of Berlin’s top five music venues. Feel that we’ve missed something? Let us know, we appreciate your feedback.

Berghain & Panorama Bar
An obvious choice, but without doubt one of the most awe-inspiring clubs in the world, let alone in Berlin, and for good reason. Built just along the former East/West border in Friedrichshain, Berghain is the techno-lover’s Mecca. Every Friday the upstairs Panorama bar opens, housing some of the most prominent electronic artists from across the globe. The door policy can be notoriously picky, but if your vibe is open and your demeanour calm you shouldn’t have any problems. Oh, and no cameras – ever. The memory of your visit will have to suffice, and it just adds to the intrigue, doesn’t it?
Rüdersdorfer Straße 70 10243 Berlin | Tel. 030 29360210 | U-Bahn: Weberweise

White Trash Fast Food
Do you like a healthy portion of rock and roll with your steak or burger? Then White Trash is the place for you. Regular frequented by rock’n’roll royalty (no less than Lemmy from Motorhead) and Berlin rock hipsters, White Trash is part restaurant and bar and part live music venue, for established acts and newcomers alike. The food is delicious, the atmosphere friendly, and if you’re feeling really brave you can head to the on-site tattoo parlour to mark the occasion!

Waldbühne
For the big acts, and I mean big acts (MJ and the Rolling Stones), Waldbühne is the perfectly whimsical woodland setting. The Waldbühne is a great open air stage, with an amphitheatre feel to it, in a gorgeous green belt near Olympiastadion. A much cosier venue in comparison to other Arena style settings, the acoustics and sound quality is legendary of Waldbühne. Also used as a classical venue and open air cinema in the summer months, the versatility of Waldbüne only adds to its charm.
