Both 48 Stunden and Fete de la Musique are coming up at Centrum this week. The Harbingers show has its final weekend and Finissage on Saturday evening - with music and Sangria 48 Stunden Neukölln (17-19 Juni 2011). Opening times: Freitag 19.00 -21.00; Finissage: Samstag 19.00 -22.00; and Sonntag 19 12.00 -18.00
Fete de la Musique next Tuesday (21st June) features the very special line up of Infinite Livez and Gold Panda, going under the moniker of Kiss Akabusi.
Infinite Livez (who we're earmarking for a future Centrum residency) is a MC and musician from Bethnal Green, London, who studied Chelsea Art College. His wide range of influences comes from such diverse sources as P-Funk, Surrealism and continental philosophy. He has released several albums on UK's Big Dada imprint. He now lives and works in Berlin.
Gold Panda (from Essex UK) built his reputation as remixer for the likes of Little Boots, Telepathe, Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco, Health and The Field, before releasing three EPs of his own material in the summer to huge critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed and Confused, The Guardian, NME and beyond. This won't be Kiss Akabusi's first performance but they are rare and so should be savoured - don't dare miss!
