Disco lives!

By DAVID DAY  |  May 29, 2007

What else do you need to know? The Milky Way is a unique venue in Boston. (Bowling, anyone?) There’s ample parking. And an exclusive Color MP3 mix is available here.

That same evening, “THE NEW BERLIN: SOUND OF THE CAPITAL” will transform the Goethe-Institut into a Berlin dance club. “You expect the Goethe-Institut to be reading Goethe and doing high culture, but we are trying to portray Germany now,” says program coordinator Annette Klein. “We wanted to give an impression of what it’s like to go dancing in Berlin.” Klein is enlisting the help of local German DJ WOLF (a/k/a Wolfgang Goetzinger), who has worked around town at Umbria, Bomboa, Highbar, and 33. Wolf plans a night of house, techno, and hip-hop, or whatever’s new and clever in Berlin. “I’m doing this DJ thing as a hobby,” he writes from LA, where he’s on a business trip. “I am technically not that great, but I love good music, and I like to bring some European tunes to the American dance floors.” Klein adds, “We’re doing it in our 1800s building on Beacon, so it’s not a club, but we are going to do the best we can.”

Circuits has a real love for the new sound of Berlin, so you know we’ll be there. Your measly $5 donation includes refreshments and some projections of the cityscape. “We want to break the stereotypes that German is this or that,” explains Klein. “Berlin is its own place, a place where a lot of liberals go, a lot of artists and musicians. It’s an interesting melting pot for a lot of creativity, and that is reflected in the clubs. We want to show them that there are cool things going on in Germany.” If the fashion, music, and design magazines are to be believed, there’s little doubt of that.
