Show Me The Body

Doors 20:00 I Start 21:00
Show Me The Body started as a band in 2009 consisting of Julian Cashwan Pratt (banjo and vocals), Harlan Steed (bass), and Gabriel Millman (drums). Noah Cohen
Corbett (current drummer) joined the band in 2014. Their unique sound is heavily influenced, both sonically and in attitude, by the city that reared them: New York. The band has been at the forefront of the city’s underground since the release of their 2014 EP Yellow Kidney.
Over the ensuing years Show Me The Body established themselves as one of the most exciting bands in the city, through their torrid live show and distinctive sonics.
Dog Whistle, Show Me The Body’s most immediate and critically acclaimed body of work to date, is heavy yet honest. The album was produced by Chris Coady, Show Me The Body, and Gabriel Millman (original drummer and current in – house producer).
Dog Whistle was written in Long Island City, Queens and recorded in Los Angeles, California in the summer of 2018.
« Dog Whistle is a call to arms directed at the community, its sonic urgency reflecting the mounting challenges of surviving in the city, » writes The FADER. The album was released on March 29th, 2019 and follows Show Me The Body’s debut album Body War.
Show Me The Body has spent the last several years building and elevating a community of like minded artists and creative collaborators called Corpus. The first Corpus release was an eponymous mixtape featuring Denzel Curry, Princess Nokia, Eartheater, Moor Mother, and more. Corpus has also released projects from Trippjones, Dreamcrusher, and Dog Breath.
More recently, Show Me The Body toured with Code Orange and King Krule. They’re currently preparing to set out on tour with HEALTH and Daughters.
BOBBY RAUSCH Record Release Concert SOAP
Presented by: XJAZZ, MUSSZO, SPRINGSTOFF & 80 DAYS RECORDS
23. January 2020
Urban Spree Berlin
On January 17, 2020 the debut album SOAP of the Berlin band BOBBY RAUSCH will be released on Eighty Days Records. After concerts at the XJazz Festival Bobby Rausch returns to Berlin together with Springstoff, Musszo and XJazz to play the Record Release concert at Urban Spree on January 23rd, 2020.
SOAP sounds determined and clear, but never loses its closeness or dirt. The songs span the spectrum between Berlin club culture, underground and great scenic narration. While the force of the sound overcomes you, you still feel pleasantly secure in the unexpected tonal turns of the band. The Berlin DJ and producer DJ Illvibe (Peter Fox, Marteria, Seeed) is a feature guest on three SOAP tracks. This album lets you sweat only to wash your soul afterwards.
AFAR blurs the horizons between organic and electronic sound worlds. With the fragile sounds of wind chimes and kalimba, mystical voices, analog synthesizers, drum machines and electric guitar, they invite you on a journey that is both intimate and ecstatic.
Close your eyes and find yourself in a hypnotic cinematic world, comparable to the surreal vibe of a Jim Jarmusch film.

Emerging from the DIY underground of Barcelona, Belgrado initially traded in a stylish mixture of post-punk tropes that could be traced back to the Europe of the early 1980s. Formed in 2010, Barcelona-based outfit Belgrado has existed at the innovative forefront of the global post-punk scene. Now in their ninth year, the quartet continues to play at home and abroad, carrying with them a reputation built on three full length albums and an impressive touring career that has taken them to all corners of the globe.
The tale is perhaps a well-precedented one: a Welshman, an American, and a Swede move to Berlin and start a post-punk band called PLATTENBAU in a studio housed in the massive former DDR Funkhaus. Hans Tobias, Lewis Lloyd und Brandon Walsh describe their very own sonic can of worms as post-ideological surrealism, the ten songs on their self-titled debut album oscillate between noise, pop and surf.
Tim Toh gained a reputation as exceptional DJ, vinyl enthusiast and music producer in the underground house scene. His skills first came to attention of Soulphiction and led to a series of releases on Philpot, followed by outings on labels like Ornaments, Freerange, Pokerflat, Nervous Records, Serious Trouble and many more. He is also known for his collaborations ranging from boogie-house with Benedikt Frey, to more club oriented sounds with youANDme. Aside from dance music Tim explores new areas between ambient, jazz, psychedelic and funk, to keep his craft fresh and exciting.
He will play tonight for you in the Urban Spree Beergarden, from 9pm on!
It would be an understatement to say that these two bands have proven to be two of the most successful, accomplished and creative bands in the German death metal underground of the last few years. With both bands having dropped their respectively magnificent third release in 2018 under the egide of the ever attentive Ván Records, this is a package that should get everyone foaming at the mouth.
Whereas Sulphur Aeon faithfully carry on the work of Charles Dexter Ward to resurrect ancient horrors in the most powerful atmospheric death metal rendition of Lovecraft’s immortal work, Chapel Of Disease started their journey in the darkness of dilapidated crypts to land in territories flooded by the soothing, psychedelic and bluesy sun of classic rock – all without losing an ounce of impact or give in to the temptations of “mature” mass-marketed heavy metal. Two bands, both one of a kind and a testimony to the creative force of the current death metal scene.
They will be joined also by the Cascadian FUNERAL DOOM band Vouna
