Synästhesie V: Stereolab, Deerhunter, Black Lips & more
Synästhesie festival takes place in the Kulturbrauerei next month, though the origins of the event have always and still revolve around a divey rock ‘n roll bar tucked into a tidy street. It’s not a secret that 8MM bar has been a significant epicentre for Berlin’s music scene where the community within that only seems to grow stronger. Founder and curator of the festival, Olli Remzi, states, “We’re amazed at how the festival has grown the last three years. It was something we were doing for a small community within the city. A scene within a scene. After all, the festival is really just an extension of 8MM bar. But instead of playing the favourite records of our favourite bands, we now get to invite our favourite bands over. I think it was something that was sorely lacking in Berlin.” On November 16th and 17th, the former brewery will host acts both spacey and heavy, along with a conversation between Alan McGee and Anton Newcombe.
