July-August 17: what we did, what we are up to

Many things happened in July and many more are coming up in the near future!!

We started July with a great festival that marked a new way for us. The Japanese Tanabata festival featuring 20+ performers and 100+ guests in (and outside) our bar regardless of the rain. As our international and Asia-friendly community keeps expanding, next step will be Korea meets Japan festival, on Saturday September 16. Start queuing NOW to get a seat 😀 !

We had the pleasure of starting our wonderful concept Summer Folk, a collective showcase of well-known Berlin-based folk musicians that will follow the natural order of seasons for an entire year…It was a huge success! Next step Autumn Folk, on September 30. Save the date!!

Australian songwriter Michael Brinkworth had a great extra-long EP release show at our venue just a few days ago. It was a magical moment of music and poetry provided by a great performer whose work keeps the tradition of folk music alive, following the steps of Reed, Dylan, Waits and the other greats. If you missed it, you might have the chance to hear him live again next winter in 800A.
