Our all-time favorite Berlin music sensation Peaches is giving an inspiring speach at The Lost Lectures this Thursday. In her performance (part talk, part interactive show), she will demonstrate that it’s in losing fear that we will gain freedom of expression and experience real creativity.
The Lost Lectures is a series of talks from London making their first appearance in Berlin. Their concept is simple: they invite an eclectic mix of world class speakers, thinkers, doers and dreamers to give short 15 minute talks with visuals and demos. All this, in awe inspiring secret locations fully art directed and designed to bring the imagination to life. Get some impressions of previous talks after the jump. Find out who else is speaking in Berlin tomorrow and how to get one of the limited tickets here.
Last week the annual Sparkle Army party exploded for the fourth time at Monster Ronson’s. Femme fatal Jackee Word once again swung her barely covered ass around the dancing pole and Peaches made surprise appearance during the Sparkle outfit contest. Enjoy the photos and animations after the jump on 2 pages.
Peaches just released a video to her new song titled Burst! The track is produced by Boys Noize and Alex Epton. On the EP there are also mixes by Planningtorock and Bart B More. Enjoy the ride after the jump.
Last week Berlin-based performer Peaches called to action in support of the imprisoned Russian protest band Pussy Riot. Together with Simonne Jones she recorded a special song and shot a video with many other supporters in the streets of Berlin that has been released a few days ago. See the results after the jump. Read more about the protest here and if you would like to support the cause as well, sign the petition here.
Since last Saturday I am totally hooked on Karaoke. Matthias Lilienthal, artistic director of the HAU theater celebrated his goodbye party with sexy rockstar grandma Peaches. She didn’t just perfome some great songs herself but also hosted an amazing karaoke night. The whole audience sang and danced and somewhere between Total Eclipse of the Heart, Rolling in the Deep, 99 Luftballons and I will Survive I got quite emotional. Not so sure if it was because of the 16 year old Turkish girl wearing a head rag performing Adele’s no. 1 hit like a champ or because of the collective experience of 800 people singing (or let’s say screaming) all together I will Survive. Definetly a night to remeber. Photos of the night after the jump.
What’s up in Berlin this week? The DMY, that’s what’s up! And along with the big design festival at Tempelhof Airport come a truckload of satellite events all over the city. We also have some nice exhibition openings this week as well as a very awesome Berghain party with the hottest acts in town. These and more events after the jump.
Dear Peaches, if you read this: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I made the biggest amount of animated party photos within one set that I have ever done, just for you I loved your Birthday party last night with all the crazy and raunchy performances! That egg-laying-number, whaaa!!! After the jump all the animated fun on 2 pages. Many hearts, xf.
This past Wednesday the weekly Shade Inc. party, formerly located at NBI, has found a new home at the pretty Flamingo. I totally prefer this new venue over the last one and I hope the party will settle in nicely into its new district Mitte. For the re-opening party they invited Dillon and Go Chic (produced by Peaches) to play live. The first one I sadly missed because the room was already too full, when I arrived. But for second band I managed to get up-front and enjoyed those cheaky punk girls from Taiwan a lot! The impressions including some animations after the jump on 2 pages.

Just one more week until the summer finally arrives in Berlin. Yes, next weekend is supposedly the end of the rainy cold summer in Berlin. Let’s hope that this forcast stays true! Until then we have quite a few things to keep us busy, including a festival about our future and sustainability, a 90s themed party (how new!), an exhibition of Berghain employees and another Weekday shop opening. This and much more after the jump.
Peaches G. at Last Days this Saturday
Well, we were expecting the opening of a new bar by the Spree, but it was postponed again. It’s okay, it’s not that we wouldn’t find a thousand other nice places to go to! Where Iam telling you after the jump:
