Hidden Orchestra – Live @ Lido

6 December 2017 |

Wednesday 22nd November, Berlin

It’s been a few years since I last saw Hidden Orchestra live. Three years, to be exact – not since their beautiful AV show at London’s Union Chapel in 2014. I had no idea what … Read More

Miles Mosley – Live @ Ritter Butzke

26 November 2017 |

Thursday 16th November, Berlin

Zara McFarlane – Live @ Prince Charles

Slowdive – Live @ Huxleys Neue Welt

5 October 2017 |

Tuesday 3rd October, Berlin

It’s difficult to overstate Slowdive’s influence on modern indie music: The Horrors, Tame Impala, DIIV, Grizzly Bear and even The xx have all borrowed elements from the newly reformed English five-piece. Although Slowdive weren’t the … Read More
