Blur / Pet Shop Boys
Berlin Fest 2013 - Day 1
Berlin Fest 2013 - Day 1

Berlin's aptly named Berlin Festival went down over the weekend (9/6-7). The first day included sets from Blur, Pet Shop Boys, Mike Patton's experimental alt-metal band Tomahawk, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez's new band Bosnian Rainbows, The Sounds, Capital Cities, Big Black Delta, and more. Pictures of those bands and more, plus Blur and Pet Shop Boys' setlists, are in this post.

The Sounds recently announced a NYC show happening on October 14 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/13) at noon.

Day 2 pictures coming soon. More day 1 pictures below...

Glad Blur will play this weird little German festival but not a single show on the east coast of the US.

European festivals > US festivals

European concert goers > US Concert goers > brooklyn concert goers.

Sad but true

This is the Burning Man for tragically uncool eurotrash hipsters. Somewhere, a baby bunny sheds a tear right before it's drowned.

Even Nazi offspring like modern music.

I was there this year!

I never said I was a badass, I just like using my items Lol. It's true it's not good for it..but some tomahawks are actually made to puncture car bodies, doors, even helicopter fuselage. I doubt that these are (obviously) given the steel, but it is one of the applications of a tactical tomahawk. I can't knock you for taking care of your blades but I promise it's an easy fix with a few passes of a bastard file.
