The disco punk trio from west coast USA make their anticipated return to
Berlin as part of their ‘Steal Your Face’ tour; promoting their new album on Chicago’s excellent Thrill Jockey label.
Taking in elements of dub, techno, punk and of course rock, they really are in world of their own. A world where people have fun and party hard to drums, bass and synth and then explode in torrents of raw energy as guitar and voice ignite. Quality local support comes from Ben Butler & Mousepad and O Tannenbaum DJs.

Berlin based drum and electronic mayhem! Ben Butler & Mouse Pad is Joe Gay Against You/Germlin’s new project with Bastian Hagedorn. Anyone exposed to the furious shake & pop of pixelated DIY dance fury from either act know to expect excellence. It’s analogue electro-pop dance music for people raised in the digital age who want to party like its 2999. And if you’re keen to hear more from them there will be a Ben Butler & Mousepad DJ set at the upcoming D/B presents Scottronics event.
