You might not be a Her­tha Fan, but you have to acknow­ledge that this team is one of the most rep­res­ent­ing things about Ber­lin: blue and white color shade and another year in the second league dodged by win­ning this sea­sons’ tour­na­ment. Mar­cus and I grasped the occa­sion to cel­eb­rate with their fans at their last game

Melt! Club Pictures


We gave away two tick­ets for last weeks Melt! Club and had the win­ners send us a couple of pic­tures from the event. Animal Col­lect­ive, Hud­son Mohawk and many other acts blew their mind and we’re pretty happy about the visu­als. Too bad we didn’t make it ourselves! Thank you Simon for con­trib­ut­ing the pictures!

Finding New York

“The new Ber­lin is just like the old New York.” That’s what I kept hear­ing the past couple of years around here. I hadn’t been to NYC for over a dec­ade and I didn’t think I would make it this year, but all thanks to our gen­er­ous host Volk­swa­gen, I finally hit the big city of dreams. The city of cit­ies.

I am a firm believer that dis­cov­er­ing urban space, usu­ally a whole city, is a mostly indi­vidual thing. No group tour, no walk­ing guide, no pub crawl any­where in this world will show you the things you’ll find when you go out on your own. Leave your maps behind, leave your friends’ res­taur­ant com­pil­a­tion behind, try to for­get

Every year a cool per­son (def­in­itely someone with 3000+ friends on face­book) goes into an unknown, shitty joint with a sparse interior design, blank walls and some vin­tage fur­niture and makes it the place to be. For the next couple of months, every­one and their mother charge into the place, over­crowd it, hype it on their blogs

An Extraordinary MyFest

So Mayday’s got everything. End­less sun­shine, a healthy amount of alco­holic bever­ages, an almost invis­ible head­count of police (that was a joke, by the way), bomb­ing parties on every street corner from the little Indian res­taur­ant with the shabby sound sys­tem to the fully packed Luzia Open Air, where music has become a rar­ity. For one day of
