    STILL PARADE

    Tue 07.06 20:00 // CONCERT, RELEASE // CLUB
    STILL PARADE

    Zur atmosphärisch produzierten Musik von STILL PARADE äußerte sich die Band lange Zeit nur in kryptischen Aussagen wie “Still Parade ist weder ein Ort noch eine Person.” Der Electro-Folk des Debütalbums “Actors” ist ausgefallen schön, mit gehauchten Vocals, den warmen Synthesizer-Sounds und dem mit Hall belegten Schlagzeug. Im Juni spielen Still Parade eine exklusive Record Release Show. Das Album “CONCRETE VISION” wird am 03. Juni erscheinen.

    DIE HEITERKEIT RELEASE SHOW

    Wed 08.06 20:00 // CONCERT, RELEASE // CLUB
    DIE HEITERKEIT RELEASE SHOW

    “Die erstaunliche Musikgruppe Die Heiterkeit hat ein neues Album aufgenommen, und getreu dem Motto »Weniger wollen, mehr machen« sind es gleich zwei Alben geworden, die nur so tun, als wären sie eines – 20 Lieder, 66 Minuten Spielzeit und ein genialer Titel: ‘Pop & Tod I+II.’
     
    (…)
     
    Es ist ja so: Mit dem ersten Album zeigt man, wer man ist, mit dem zweiten, dass man’s ernst meint, und mit dem dritten, was man drauf hat. Und jetzt muss der Infotextverfasser ein bisschen an sich halten, denn »Pop & Tod I+II« ist das, was man einen Wurf nennt, ein großes Werk, meinetwegen Meisterwerk. Man kann dieses Album lesen wie einen Roman, wahrscheinlich ist es ein Konzeptalbum, weil alles ineinandergreift und sich fortentwickelt, auf jeden Fall hat es so was noch nicht gegeben, nicht mit dieser Haltung in deutscher Sprache, und das, was es ist, brauchen wir gerade jetzt.” – Tino Hanekamp

    GABRIEL SALOMAN // COMMON EIDER KING EIDER // SVARTE GREINER

    Fri 10.06 21:00 // CONCERT // STUDIO
    GABRIEL SALOMAN // COMMON EIDER KING EIDER // SVARTE GREINER

    Berlin’s own Miasmah Records and Infinite Greyscale team up to present the Throats of Ash tour: an evening of darkened ambience, crackling guitar drone and wild incantations. Tonight marks the return of Gabriel Saloman, one time Yellow Swans guitarist and current purveyor of darkly cinematic drone and noise. He is joined by the haunting vocals and blackened atmospherics of the San Francisco based Common Eider King Eider. They will be accompanied by the lynchian soundscapes of Svarte Greiner, solo project of Deaf Centre and B/B/S member Erik K. Skodvin. The evening begins with some special guests from NEU! Bar’s monthly Rose Sélavy DJ night.

    ABOUT
     
    GABRIEL SALOMAN is a Vancouver based musician and artist. Saloman has been performing experimental, conceptual and freely improvised music for over 15 years. He is known for his work as half of Portland based noise group Yellow Swans. He currently performs solo under his own name and has recently released records with Miasmah (GR), Shelter Press (FR), Infinite Greyscale (GR) and Beacon Sound (US). His compositions stem from investigations into temporal abstractions, conceptual sound and gestural noise. There is a parallel concern with sound art as both liberating practice and praxis. In particular he is interested in sound’s relation to the body and its capacity to move collective bodies in space through affect. Sonically his work is haunting and deeply emotive, sitting between genres and drawing on cinematic and viscerally live qualities. // HomepageBandcampSoundcloud
     

     
    ///
     
    COMMON EIDER KING EIDER is an evolving art and music collaboration between Rob Fisk (Badgerlore, ex-Deerhoof, and Six Organs of Admittance/Hexadic collaborator), Vicky Fong, Andee Connors (A Minor Forest), Andrew Weathers and Blaine Todd. A potent mix of blackened ambience, drone and silence incorporating viola, vast chorale arrangements, and field recordings. Labels representing CEKE since their inception in 2007 include Pesanta Urfolk, Black Horizons, Root Strata, Sol y Nieve, and their own imprint Caribou People. Their latest offering Unhuulda, features swelling vocal abstractions augmented with lush blankets of layered viola stretched out of time- hushed, yet unnerving to experience. Terrifying, beautiful, spare, the sound of light nullified- and at the same time a celebration of the power and beauty of the sun. // SoundcloudBandcamp

    SVARTE GREINER is the one man project of Erik K. Skodvin (half of the duo Deaf Center & label manager of the miasmah label). While the duo creates dusty grey soundscapes in a surrealistic world of sounds not far from that of David Lynch/Angelo Badalamenti, Svarte Greiner is further exploration into a more dark, mysterious & disturbed universe. Drawing inspirations from artists such as Earth, Volcano the bear, David Darling & Deathprod, the output is draped in lynchian mysticism & horror film cinematics. Since his release of the debut album “knive” in 2006 & followup album “kappe” in 2009, he has released a series of 12″´s, cassettes and limited edition releases around.

    DEAD LADIES SHOW

    Tue 14.06 20:00 // READING // STUDIO
    DEAD LADIES SHOW

    It’s June, so our very special literary cabaret is heading for Gay Paris – although not literally. Tuesday, 14 June sees the seventh Dead Ladies Show at ACUD, featuring three fascinating women of yesteryear who rocked the city in their very own ways. From communard to bohemian writer to gospel legend, each of them left her mark on Paris. Presented in German and English by author and journalist Jan Groh, translator Laura Radosh and co-host Florian Duijsens, all held together by your beloved Katy Derbyshire.
     
    Say “Bonjour Paris” in your best Audrey Hepburn/Fred Astaire threads or go for a more down and out look, but make sure you join us. By popular request we’ve moved upstairs to the ACUD Studio, where there’ll be a special drink available at the bar as ever. €4 on the door – come on time at 8 pm to get the best seats!

    ABOUT
     
    LOUISE MICHEL (1830 – 1905) was an anarchist and animal lover, a feminist, a romantic, a passable writer and a teacher. Known as “the red she-wolf”, she was famed for attaching a protest poster to a policeman’s back and rescuing a cat from a hail of bullets mid-street battle. She fought for the Paris Commune and survived various prison sentences and exile in New Caledonia, where she became a fan of Kanak quarter-tone music. On her return to France she was lauded and lambasted as an agitator for freedom, equality and social justice. Her funeral drew two thousand mourners.
     
    In 1912, DJUNA BARNES (1892 – 1982) walks into the Brooklyn Eagle office and declares: “I can write and I can draw and you’d be a fool not to hire me.” Thus began the literary career of the writer of one of *the* modern novels, Nightwood. From an unhappy childhood in a highly unconventional dysfunctional family, via the 1930s Parisian lesbian literary bohème, to a misanthropic recluse in the West Village, Djuna Barnes’ life was certainly never dull. Plus she was one of the only people in the famous circles she moved in who actually had to earn a living as a writer, illustrator, first-wave feminist, bisexual and alcoholic.
     
    Called the godmother of rock ‘n’ roll, SISTER ROSETTA THARPE (1915 – 1973) was a guitarist and gospel singer with a profound influence on musicians like Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin. She took to the stage at the age of four and never really left it. Sister Rosetta Tharpe made the first gospel record to hit the charts, played with Cab Calloway at the Cotton Club, attracted 25,000 paying customers to her third wedding, got in trouble with gospel purists and recorded a live album in Paris in 1964. “With a Gibson SG in her hands, Sister Rosetta could raise the dead. And that was before she started to sing.”
