Hello Darklings! For our fourth party under The Darkness-flag we present an evening of obscure 80’s, apocalyptic lounge and cold cold sounds.
Live: Maris Bon (Stockholm
Dj’s: Petra Flurr (Sabbat Berlin), Dean Gullers (Hole Stockholm), Tom Ass (The Darkness)
Visuals: Kate Ehrhardt
About the performers: Maris Bon is Maja, known as the singer from swedish dark indie act The Kid (Hybris), backed up By Mårten of bands such as The Tourettes and Osiris. Together they make post apocalyptic lounge covers in broken german. You truly haven’t lived until you hear their rendition of Blümchen’s “Heute Ist Mein Tag”. This is how they describe themselves: “Maris Bon and her pianist will not stop playing even though the world is ending like Titanic sinking. We create a surreal, pretentious and solemn moment where the singer and her pianist dreams of living in an image, an image of a dream to live in. That dream is the cliché of Germany. The dream about dressing the soldiers wounds. The dream about being the centre of the universe even if that dream will kill us all in the end” http://www.myspace.com/marisbon
About the dj’s: Petra Flurr is one of the hardest working freaks of the Berlin underground. You have most likely seen him/her perform at clubs like Ich Bin Ein Berliner or Poopsy and if you haven’t…well, your loss. At The Darkness s/he’s bringing some seriously obscure minimal wave, dark wave, new wave and post punk.http://www.myspace.com/petraflurrr
Dean Gullers is a transplant from Sweden. Just like Petra he is a connoisseur of the 80’s that you don’t know about. In his native Stockholm he is known for whipping up dark analogue sounds at clubs like (his own) Hole as well as Marie Laveau and F12, but his gig at The Darkness is his Berlin debut. Expect hearing Tuxedomoon and Informatics during Deans set.http://www.myspace.com/carteblanchecarteblanche
Tom Ass is One of the two hosts of The Darkness, as always he is bringing an eclectic mix of noise rock, electronica, no wave and death rock.
Kate Ehrhardt is a performance artist and VJ. She mixes strange silent movies with hard technology and brings forth a stunning world of visual weirdness.
