Address to a Haggis
Fair fa’ your honest,
sonsie face,
Great chieftain o’ the puddin-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy o’ a grace
As lang’s my arm.
(Robert Burns)

On Friday, January 25th, at 8pm we will once again be commemorating the birthday of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns with a traditional Burns Supper. If you’ve never tried real haggis with neeps and tatties, or if you’d like to experience the great man’s poetry read out to you and listen to a piper working the magic of the bagpipes while you sip on a fine Scotch whisky, then don’t miss this event. (For the vegetarians among you, we will be serving vegetarian haggis, of course.)

Tickets cost 28 Euros (including a home-cooked, three-course meal and a glass of Scotch) and can be bought until Wednesday the 23rd January, 3pm in the shop. There are only 25 available, so hurry down!

Danish songwriter Jacob Faurholt has released 4 solo albums between 2005 – 2012, the latest “Dark Hours”, was released in Germany through Raw Onion Records in July. “Dark Hours” was well received and the English site Drowned In Sound wrote the following: “Jacob Faurholt instantly transports the listener to the sort of gothic Americana hinterland that has been populated by the likes of Will Oldham and Sparklehorse.”
Faurholt moved to Berlin in 2010, and has since played more than 50 shows in Germany. He has also played support jobs for Grizzly Bear, The Black Heart Procession, The Handsome Family, and fellow danes Efterklang. Faurholt is also active with his psych pop band Crystal Shipsss.

15/01/2013 – 21.00 – FREESHOW

Astrid und Luisa aus Dresden sind Deux Femmes, kennen sich seit der Schulzeit und machen seitdem auch zusammen Musik. Acht Jahre ist das nun schon her, in der Zeit ist viel passiert. Nach mehreren Auftritten bei offenen Bühnen nun ein eigenes Konzert im England, England. Mit vielen neuen Songs im Gepäck werden sie Freunden von Bright Eyes, Azure Ray oder Dear Reader eine winterlich-wohlige Melancholie ums Herz zaubern. Unterstützt von ein paar Freunden, die den Liedern noch mehr Facetten schenken, kommen die beiden Anfang Januar zu uns.

* NO KING. NO CROWN.

Kein König, keine Krone und doch eine Majestät: René adelt das Gefühl. Das Zepter übernehmen Stimme und Gitarre. Dem Zuhörer gewährt er eine Audienz bei sich selbst: dort, wo farbenfrohe Melodien die Gedanken hofieren und in den Herzen einen Thron besteigen.

‘My name is Karim Amir, and I am an Englishman born and bred, almost.’

Admittedly up till now I never read any of Kureishi’s novels, only saw ‘Intimacy’ and loved it. This quite well-known title of his we chosen to get away from the mother issues in this bookclub, haha!
On the cover it reads: “The hero of HK’s début novel is a dreamy teenager, of indeterminate sexual preference, who is desperate to escape the drear clutches of suburban South London and taste all the forbidden fruits which the 1970s seem to offer.”

Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!
