★★★★★ LIVE MUSIC ★★★★★
The Jolie Blondes
Berlin Americana stalwarts Tom Lee Who and Joe Armstrong know 120 years and many hundreds of folk, country, bluegrass and country rock songs between them.
Over the last 14 years, together, and in their internationally- celebrated bands Two Dollar Bash and Lord Mouse and The Kalypso Katz, they’ve played every Berlin backroom, jam
session and big stage.
Their new band The Jolie Blondes, named after the most famous song in the Cajun canon, is a roots music passion project celebrating strings and vocal harmony.
Talented Australian singer-songwriter Samantha met Tom onstage where they broke a room full of hearts on two classic Gram and Emmylou numbers.
Edinburgh-born dobro master Gavin Taylor and his band toured Scotland by mooring their sailing ship at whisky distilleries and playing from the deck before he arrived in Berlin to dry out in 2019 and met Joe at a jam.
The Jolie Blondes’ heavenly harmonies and rootsy grooves show their deep love of good stories told properly in song.
★★★★★ AMELIA JANE HUNTER ★★★★★
Amelia Jane Hunter (AUS)
Originally from Darwin, Amelia now lives and loves in the land of bone structure, broad shoulders and smoldering eye contact; Berlin.
Touring the expansive girth of Europe, UK and Australia finding and funding perverted love, true crime and culinary frights, Amelia is an unstoppable adventurer.
Riveting, ribald and completely uncensored, Amelia’s brand of individual comedy and solo shows have earned her top accolades and comedy awards in Australia and the UK.
A powerful storyteller with a penchant for the theatrical, never short of a story or afraid to pepper the air blue, Amelia Jane Hunter is the carnival ride that should have been closed down the day Michael Jacksons’ hair caught fire.
‘Raw, outrageous, completely unapologetic and enthralling to watch‘
UK Comedy Guide
‘She is a brilliant tour de force of laughter filled mischievous comedy.’
Time Out UK
‘An incredible talent, bold and daring’ -3 Weeks, Edinburgh

★★★★★ DJ SERAPHIM ★★★★★
”Conceived on the misty waters of the Amazon river, and born at a VIP room of an abandoned dusty disco, Seraphim had since an early age an inclination to the life-changing aspects that music and organized sound can provoke on the human soul. Shamanism, musique concrète, conceptual art, quantum physics, aromatherapy, culinary … Are all elements contributing to and inspiring his exquisite sound.
Each set takes us on a journey through sonic universes, traveling around every possible style and musical influences. From exotica to experimental jazz, from cheesy eighties disco to unexpected mash-ups, from jumpy klezmer to burlesque old-timers.
Each upcoming track is a surprise and will expand the boundaries of the listener’s ears, bringing sometimes joy and luxury, sometimes drama and fear. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes and your ass-shaking pants to the oddly exquisite world of Seraphim’s musical explorations.”
