Berlin Compass and A Month of Sundays

Blimey, what a rather large month November has been. Maybe it’s all this buzz of activity that has kept the first snow from falling, which I must say is rather disappointing, even if I have been enjoying the surprise (relative) warmth.

Sandra Sarala pulled off a nigh-impossible four evenings straight of brain-stretchingly diverse performances, under the four points of the Berlin COMPASS. Here are a few Northern snaps from the also fabulously talented Maren Imhoff.

 

I had a splendid time on Friday evening. It brought together so much of what I love in Berlin – a collaborative spirit, variety of styles, beautifully cosy venue, and an eager audience.

And those things were also abundant in the Headful of Bees‘ Month of Sundays series at Cafe Hilde. Such a delight to feel yourself lifted and evaporated by wonderful music in what feels very much like your own (albeit very large) living room. This round of delights and wonders featured Ken Burke, Wasp Summer, Eric Eckhart, Miss Kenichi, Violetta, Entertainment for the Braindead, Folk’s Sake, Short & Sweet, Seanin, Nina Hynes, Sara Pickin and me (including a surprise bonus set yesterday evening). Ken and Hilde are cooking up more splendours for you next year, so keep your scanners aimed in that direction!

      Ahoy Graham!
      I’ll be back early (if not bright) on 19 January. Looking forward to catching up and meeting the new shark! And of course, diving back into that SpeedPoets pool, come March.
      Delights to you all,
      oC.
