Thanks to all who came to #3 with Charlotte Brandi!
I’m happy to announce that the Swiss singer from Zurich Evelinn Trouble will be joining me on Monday, March 20th. Björn Magnusson will be joining her as well for her set. (We had to change the show from the 27th to the 20th!). You can read some more about her here:
FEAT. BJÖRN MAGNUSSON
Two figures emerging from the Zurich Underground Scene combine their voices in Berlin.
“Evelinn Trouble; voice, guitar // Björn Magnusson; voice, guitar
Trouble started in Zurich, ten years ago, with her self-released debut “Arbitrary Act”. Since criss crossing her way from Zurich to London to Berlin, in bands and theatre productions, she has left behind a trail of chaos and 4 Albums. A body of work like a testimony of a soul in search. Forceful and fragile at the same time, her music has seen many places and combines seemingly incompatible genres into one. In Trouble’s world, a ballad can sound like war song and the other way around.
For this evening Trouble will combine voices with Björn Magnusson. Magnusson is songwriter and producer formerly known as Great Black Waters. He has released a wide array of music ranging from Detroit techno to fragile psychedelia with many different projects and names. His latest release “Almost Transparent Blue” is his third solo-record.”
I’ll be joined by Nils Ostendorf (Trumpet/Keyboards) and Andi Haberl (Drums).
The show will start at 8 sharp, done by 10pm. €7 at the door. Doors at 7pm.
We would love to see you!

Three shows into our fall tour in Europe, and it’s a tough call between eating supper and playing music as to which is the most satisfying. Honestly, we have been feasting like kings and queens – last night’s foie gras salad followed by fresh pasta and chicken on a sauce generously drizzled with truffle oil will not soon leave my memory collection of most favourite meals.
It all started in Geneva at L’Épicentre – a beautiful artist centre, intimate, slightly off the beaten path, and with a truly superb team working with the best equipment, attentive and generous audience included. We will gladly return to play there again the second we are invited. Then followed the Cressier festival Seul-en-Scène.
Finally our secret show last night at Bar King in Neuchâtel where we pulled out all the stops, and played almost our entire repertoire for very good friends and strangers alike. You know it’s a good night when Yesterday’s Halo inspires a dance solo!
As usual, we’ll leave you with a picture or two… and hopefully we’ll see some of you tonight in Bern at the Progr/Bee-flat!
