Birds in Row / Life in Vacuum / Bystander

 

Birds in Row -> Listen

Birds in Row is an experimental hardcore punk/metal trio who write punitive, exasperated tunes with equisitite, dark textures. Their members maintain a level of anonymity to pin the focus on the music itself rather than those who create it. Birds in Row is committed to a true DIY ethic, placing all their efforts into the creation of a deep fan-to-artist connection.

Life in Vacuum -> Listen

Life In Vacuum make a messy, chaotic brand of aggressive weirdo punk sure to get you amped. They easily balance technical song construction with raw, free-form jam sections to create an intense, gnarly listening experience. Their live show takes the bands grizzly, brutal sound to the next level — showcasing their powerful, sonically oppressive presence.

Magic Life: A Group Show

For our last show of 2015, we have crafted a group show featuring some of the best free-spirited painting talents in european contemporary urban arts.

‘Magic Life’ unites under one roof the magic wizards of Vienna, aka the Irga Irga Crew (Mik Shida, Fresh Max, Mafia_Tabak and Knarf), the Western Germany spirits of Nartur Kunstgruppe (Henning Bischof, Nils Leimkühler, Moritz Neuhoff und Stefan Wiesnau) and our free electron Resident Artist Johannes Mundinger.

All the 9 invited artists are painters, using walls to express their energy and talent with scale, and are characterized by free brush strokes, extreme free flow, disdain of conveniences, and abstracted graffiti.

The exhibition will open on Saturday 24.10.2015 and will run until 27.11.2015.

Please refer to the Galerie page here for more info about the show. Please request the catalogue of the show to galerie@urbanspree.com

ARTISTS

Liliana Velasquez M. has crossed borders all her life. Raised in Miami Medellin and New Jersey there is no role she cannot play and her comedy reflects this extravagant mix in her Latina-tude, Catholic guilt and American dreaming. As an adult, Liliana recklessly explored NYC, slipping in and out of different art forms, costumes, and jobs. She has so many outrageous stories to tell, it would horrify her proud parents, Only now do they admire her comedic outlook on so many mistakes. Always hungry for new challenges, Liliana soon found other platforms for the performance that is her life: Berlin Neukölln. She is proud to be queer and not perfect and enjoys waking up in the afternoons.
As if that isn’t enough, she is also leading lady at Freudian Slip Club, producing hundreds of shows in Germany every year.

Duckie L’Orange is a Berlin based performance artist with a twist.
She does weird and wacky interactive performances for kids, and equally wacky but significantly dirtier shows for adults. She’s been all around town like a hipster on a vintage bicycle – from performing at the Sydney Opera House, barking in a steam punk carnival with Antigua i Barbuda at Sydney Festival, touring Germany with the Puppetry Slam Berlin to creating shows in the jungles of Kalimantan and Timor Leste.

Crystal Tassels, “The American Brat Queen,” is a burlesque artist, chanteuse, and fetish performer from Seattle, USA. After making her burlesque debut in South Korea, Tassels spent six years performing in the USA and Canada and is now based in Berlin. When she’s not singing or stripping, you’ll usually find her impersonating her cat.

Carmen Chraim is a beloved comedian in the Berlin English comedy scene. After five years of performing stand-up comedy, she is now recognized on the train by strangers at least 20 times a year! She performs mainly in Berlin but also manages to leave her bubble and delight many boring German cities (both West and East). She’s also had her name pulled from a bucket for at least four NY open mics; flyered and performed tirelessly for an entire month at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; and found performing on stages in Amsterdam and Warsaw to be very enjoyable.
And now you’re asking yourself, “Great, but where is she from?” Born and raised in Lebanon, she wins over crowds with her high energy presence & rapid-fire anecdotes. Thanks to her Middle Eastern background, passion for hummus, deep experience with corporate Germans and sarcastic political views, she’s often seen as an alternative Arab success story that hasn’t yet been discovered by the media.

Purdy Hölsom is a singer-schlongbiter, rapper wrong-righter. She is a comedy musician from North Carolina (US). She’s a four-time finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. In 2018, her “Gay Money” music video was screened at the Palm Springs Film Fest & the Berlin Music Video Awards. She recently performed at Edinburgh Fringe Fest, and learned that Scotland is very, very cold.Holsom has released two albums, Purdy Holsom (2014) and Vageezus: Voice of a Generation (2016), several singles, and nine music videos (depending on what you count).

Gorjeoux is a Corset wearing, KitKat loving, Ukulele playing, Gorgeous, Queer, Non Binary Femme Goddess who likes to play around with new imaginings, queerifications and mashups of pop songs.

Wynton Kelly Stevensonn is a musical storyteller with a twist. His musical journey is crafted with vocals, harmonica, beats and live looping. Sponsored by Hohner Music he has been touring and living in Europe for 10 years.

Lady Daisey is a soul/funk singer who spent her childhood touring the U.S. with her parent’s band. Raised on the road, home-schooled and surrounded by music, it was natural for her to blossom into the artist that she is. Since then, she’s been following her musical path and developed her own playful style, ranging from sultry love songs to powerhouse feel-good old-school soul. Lady Daisey has played venues and festivals around the globe, spreading her message of love and positivity, soulfully presented over head noddin’ Batsauce beats. A small woman with a huge voice, Lady Daisey is sure to grab the attention and steal the hearts of everyone within ear’s reach.

She’s opened for Sharon Jones, Mayer Hawthorne, Chali 2na, Roxanne Shante, Bahamadia, the Perceptionists. She’s rocked festivals around the world alongside the Roots, Method Man, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Muse, Typical Cats, Souls of Mischief, Zion I. Lady Daisey’s voice can also be heard on recordings with Qwazaar, Typical Cats, Asamov and Marc Hype.

Batsauce is a musician/producer/DJ from Jacksonville, Florida. Following his well received EP & LP with Qwazaar, Batsauce debuts his instrumental intergalactic love saga entitled “Starcrossed.” Batsauce is also one-third of the Smile Rays (along with Paten Locke & Lady Daisey). He has worked with Mr. Lif , Akrobatik, The AB’s, Paten Locke, Lady Daisey, Surreal, Dillon, Chop, Boog Brown, and MassInfluence. Not to mention, the likes of Bahamadia, George Clinton, Vinnie Paz, and Dumbtron have appeared on his tracks. As well as an avid beatmaker, Batsauce is a multi-instrumentalist and DJ. He resides mostly in Berlin, when he isn’t couch-surfing elsewhere.
