D/B Recommended: Puschenfest @ Festsaal Kreuzberg Berlin | Thursday & Friday, 02.-03.08.2012

The Puschen booking agency presents a festival over two nights at the start of August with a solid lineup of innovative rock and indie. The strong lineup features appearances by the likes of The Chap, Kurt Vile & The Violaters, Megafaun and Fenster.

The fridays headline slot is filled by Papa M aka David Pajo who was a founding member of D/B favourites Tortoise and also through his involvement with Slint played an integral part in the birth of the Post-Rock movement.

David Pajo (born June 25, 1968) is an American alternative rock musician. He has played a wide variety of music, loosely fitting into several other genres: hardcore, math-rock, post-rock, electronica, folk and indie-pop. Though a multi-instrumentalist (including guitar, bass, banjo and drums), he is best known for his guitar work.

Since the breakup of Slint, Pajo has seldom held positions in other bands for very long, moving from one to the other quite often. As a result he has contributed to many line-ups, playing and recording with Will Oldham, The For Carnation, Tortoise,Stereolab, Royal Trux, King Kong, Bush League, Zwan, Peggy Honeywell, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and, most recently, Interpol.

The Chap | Fun & Interesting

Amongst the other many highlights at this years Puschenfest are the London based Experimental pop band The Chap who purvey a stunning blend of indietronics and who are well worth the trip to Festsaal Kreuberg on the thursday night too.
