Since 2011, “Knust Acoustics” has been held weekly in Hamburg during the summer months: an early-evening event at which top artists each perform a 30-minute acoustic set. Quickly developing into a public and media favourite, it has since grown offspring in Berlin (Kesselhaus Acoustics), Essen and Hanover.
This year Knut Acoustics is celebrating its 10th anniversary; which is why it’s being celebrated with a Winter Acoustics session in none other than the extremely impressive Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg – this coming Tuesday 12th February!
So if you’re in Berlin get down to the Kesselhaus (Kulturbrauerei, Prenzlauerberg) on Tuesday 11th February for some lovely handmade music (free entry)…
And if you’re in Hamburg on Wednesday, then hit the Elbphilharmonie to enjoy the same line-up in a sartorial setting!
Andi Fins is a Berlin-based producer, singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Originally from an isolated Bavarian village, his alternative/ indie music inspired him to move to Germany’s cultural capital, where he has released three acclaimed albums (‘A chapter missing its book’, ‘Dreamer’, ‘How will our hero get out of this one’).
After playing “every small venue in Berlin”, CATT has recently released her debut album Moon (“See the moon changing its position like you going through transition. So don’t you worry, worry my dear – one day you’ll see it see it see it clear.”). Her first headlining show was her record release party and it was sold out. With her frail delicate voice whispering sweet nothings to you, expect to be seduced like others before you…
Also appearing are Dino Paris and David Ost, plus – in Berlin – DJ Wohllebe.
The show starts at 7.30pm. Entry is free in Berlin, tickets are 29€ in Hamburg. See you there!
