The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.
Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.
On the program: Paradox Obscur LIVE, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave.
For its fifth edition, Night Shift comes back from a long summer break with a bang! We’re going back to our original format with one room but are tripling our stage performances.
The live stage will be taken over by very special international guests: emblematic Greek duo Paradox Obscur!
Paradox Obscur were formed in January 2014 by Toxic Razor & Kriistal Ann in order to step into a more minimal direction than their previous projects and haul a diverse universe consisting of dark hardware synthesizers under a cold drape of spiraling electronics.
Their live shows are characterized by the raw energy and extended passionate female vocals.
Listen to Dark Fortress:
On the drag stage, our hostess Ghōst will be joined by fresh faces of the Berlin drag scene. They will have the pleasure of sharing their art with you, some of them for the very first time, and offering you a show always darker but always more fun!
At the DJ booth, our resident DJs Al Niklaus and Inept Pernicious will be joined by Mr. Manic.
They will take you back to the sweet effervescence of the 80s with New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave beats.
Night Shift is a LGBT+, hetero-inclusive bimestrial event.
We pride ourselves on being a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, their allies, and women: our team consists predominantly of female-identified and queer-identified folks.
All of our DJs and our drag performers are individuals who identify as being part of a counter-culture and our drag shows also fall under the umbrella of our music genres for a complete immersive experience.
