This is a funny tale of internet randomness meeting a fun weekend. Just recently I read about young Australian band Operator Please on one of the more random links my computer knows and when checking where to go with my friends after arriving in Berlin on Friday night, I saw they were playing.
Not just playing, but playing at Rosi’s club (with distinct mixing of a German name and English punctuation, cough) a few minutes down the road that my friend highly approved of, and rightly so. The added bonus of things just starting around midnight even meant we had plenty of time for some chili before leaving.
And thus, instead of going to play ping pong as we enjoyed on my previous visits, we went to see a band sing Just a Song about Ping Pong and many other songs in a great gig. The band looked young, or rather really young (with the exception of their drummer who looked really really young) which probably gave them that extra bit of enthusiasm. Fun, energetic, violin laden, well-sung. [Add Beth Gibbons comparison here.] Great fun.
And one of my favourite singers attended as well.
omg the drummaa is relii hot aii???
i was at that gig too. crazy shit, my boyfriend and i hung out with adam green for a bit. i’m still tripped out over it!
Yay for Australian music getting a good showing around the world!
