Updates – Backlogged Concerts

Hello all, In the next few entries I’ll be posting a backlog of concert experiences from the past few months in Germany. These have been haphazardly posted around Facebook and various music forums, but I thought it would be nice to concentrate the content here and just have everything in one place. Cheers 🙂


Tokio Hotel – Tokyo Showcase

December 15, 2010. Oh god. It might seem like I start a lot of band encounter reviews with “oh god,” but that’s because these things are the closest to religious catharsis that I ever manage to come. I am so messed up right now. The showcase, well, I will struggle to describe it in the … Continue reading

Tokio Hotel in Tokyo – Embassy

December 13, 2010. Oh god. I really need to say this – always take chances. It has never let me down. I didn’t really believe the lookalike contest would get me into the showcase, and I didn’t really believe going to stand in front of an embassy in the rain would accomplish anything either. But … Continue reading

Updates – Tokio Hotel in Tokyo

December 21, 2010. I’m back in Berlin and exhilarated after my trip to Tokyo to see Tokio Hotel’s first performance in the city. I’m a bit behind on updating the blog, but I’ll be posting now my reviews from the embassy (December 13) and the showcase (December 15) that have been previously posted elsewhere. Cheers … Continue reading

Who doesn’t love Clueso?

Let’s not kid around, I’ve got a soft spot ten million Zentimeter wide for Clueso. This quirky singer-songwriter is basically the Jason Mraz of Germany, except even more wonderfully whimsical and soulful. Which is why his collection of “MTV Eyes On” snippets never gets old. Seriously? Could there be anything better than this guy randomly … Continue reading

Lovely acoustic performance from Gisbert zu Knyphausen

I completely adore this song, and the production on this vid is so beautiful; love the black and white and the simple acoustic. I’ll be seeing him live in Berlin this December with Kettcar, which should be awesome. Gisbert zu Knyphausen, “Dreh dich nicht um.” Translation: Deep in the rings of our eyesstands everything that … Continue reading


Exciting stuff! The inaugural meeting of our Seattle Street Team went off gloriously; we passed out a ton of flyers and merch, blasted tunes, and talked to passersby and radio DJs about the music. EVENT COVERAGE:

Street teaming in Seattle

Every city could use a little more Tokio. My hometown of Seattle has got you covered for coffee, plaid, and Kurt Cobain, but they haven’t quite caught on to the light shining out of Germany. We’ve decided to help them out and bring them the Tokio Hotel they’re missing. And thus – it’s time to … Continue reading

Upcoming live DVD release – Tokio Hotel’s Humanoid City

The live DVD we’ve been dying for is just around the corner – Tokio Hotel’s first live concert DVD since 2007’s legendary Zimmer recording. Filmed in Milan, this badass HD wonder utilized 15 cameras to capture the spectacular scope of the Humanoid City. http://www.tokiohotel.com/3/specials/en/bannercontest_201006/banner/tokiohotel_banner_300x250_en.swf Even more amazingly, you can now pre-order the DVD in combination … Continue reading

Midnight Monsoon returns for Season 3

Hey Leute, DJ Nena here. I was super stoked to get back in studio last week for the first show of the new season, and for those who didn’t catch the show, we checked out a few brand new artists just making their way onto the German music scene. Cobra Starship helped us out by … Continue reading
