Hot town - Amphi in the city - Part 2 (Restaurants/Cafes)

16th of July 2017, 17:16

In Part One I mentioned some cultural, shopping and outdoor possibilities to make your Amphi visit more enjoyable but we cannot live on love/music and fresh air alone, can we?;) Let's see how and where we have good opportunities to feed the inner wolf.

There are a lot of places to eat in Cologne except the old town (Heumarkt). Check out the quarters of Züplicher Platz - Kyffhäuser Str., cafes between Rudolfsplatz - Moltkestr., and places at Chlodwigplatz.

If you are ok with somewhat fancy and not too cheap (10-15 euros per dish) options you can dine at the restaurants frequented by the local creative elite (yes, also hipsters) but which are also really good restaurants indeed. Every dish is delicious and I shall recommend the famous Salon Schmitz and Goldmund. Try Schmitz’s quiche, ice cream and a home riesling sekt (German sparkling wine). Goldmund has high level restaurant food but also offers a giant open library. Feel free to read anything you spot on the shelves.

A cheaper, really healthy and good quality family option is a German-Italian cuisine chain 'Va Piano '. There is one close to the festival area (Köln Deutz). Another hidden insider place in Deutz is Hotelux, offering real Soviet cocktails, meals and tapas. It has propaganda posters bar but also a salon with luxurious Kremlin decoration a garden and… you can even take a selfie with (well… almost) real Lenin.

Sushi? Momotoro is a real and traditional Japanese (RSVP!), but Fischhof is a good (and cheaper) Korean-Japanese alternative - try their tempura!

If you want to eat real Kölsch food try to visit the restaurants around Eigelstein street or just follow the official guide. (Find out what 'Himmel un Äd' is ;) For the beer I personally prefer Kölsch beer at Malzmühle.

What? You do not eat meat? Oh, no problem!

There are a lot of vegan options in Cologne, but Trash Chic is my favourite vegan rock pub and a offering some cool vegan meals with real rock-n-roll attitude.

Habibi is a very popular Lebanese place really close to Art of Dark offering good falafel and hummus but not only that. You could go on a secret date at the garden of “Off Broadway” cinema, just nearby.

The most cosy, budget and homestyle cafes with attitude are Duddel with their cat worship and second hand furniture and Wohngemeinschaft hostel where all the rooms are decorated as if they were been rented by different people.

That's all for the foodie part - look out for Part Three, that will provide some information about the alternative scene in Cologne and little extras.

The Tear Garden (Edward Ka-Spel of The Legendary Pink Dots & cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy) to release Psychedelic Electro album 'The Brown Acid Caveat'

14th of July 2017, 17:16

It's been nearly 50 years since the first Brown Acid Caveat was issued to a million hippies in a field at the first Woodstock Festival. In these dark, more-knowing times The Tear Garden felt it was the perfect moment to mark their 30th Anniversary with a similar warning, especially as their first album back in 1987 bore the declaration, "We Will Pour Our Jars in Reservoirs" on the cover. In fact, we were joking. Despite the madness you may perceive all around you right now, those jars were stashed on the highest shelf of a kitchen cupboard and the key was tossed into the ocean. Our sole wish is to introduce beauty to the medieval landscape we appear to be trapped in right now.
There will be no brown paint splashed around. Beauty survives, even underneath the ugliest, heaviest rock. This is The Tear Garden's 8th record and is testimony to an enduring friendship that spans the aforementioned ocean. After 8 years, The Tear Garden (the psychedelic/experimental/electronic project of Edward Ka-Spel of The Legendary Pink Dots & cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy) return with "The Brown Acid Caveat", the culmination of the duo's 31 years of working together. Psychedelic electronic melancholia, fearless experimentation & improvisation combine to take the intrepid listener on a mesmerising voyage of the mind.
Feel the Love. Don't touch the brown acid. EK & CK

Hot town - Amphi in the city - Part 1 (museums / parks / shopping)

13th of July 2017, 17:16

EN

So you are heading to Amphi but plan to stay in Cologne as well?

Great! Here we have gathered some advice for those who want to see more than just the cathedral. Most of the places mentioned here are based on my humble perception of my hometown but I have also asked some other locals for sharing responsibility. ;)

So...here we go.

Museums

Did you know, that the museums of Cologne are co-operating with Amphi festival? Find the full list here. All the museums are good to visit but I will just pick two of my favourites. If you like ethnology, weird costumes and scary masks - Rathenau Joest museum is worth visiting. Are you a pop art/modern art fan? Then Ludwig museum is an absolute must. By the way, the cafe/restaurant at the museum is also worth visiting. Especially at lunch time during weekdays ;)

Shopping

Although Schildergasse is a well known shopping area with international trademarks you can go to the more alternative Belgian quarter, for more local hipster design. Most of my Belgian friends visit the German drugstore chain DM (no, it is not what you think, it is an abbreviation for a DrogerieMarkt;) to get some cheaper make up items. Ready to renew your outfit? You can head straight to “Art of Dark”, the scene shop in Cologne. Among the “motleyblack” clothes they also sell some homemade specialities like home drawn goth Comics (feed your German) and a variety of home made honey wines, and their own festival. More about it in the second part of the article.

Parks and recreation

Here you are lucky - Amphi is organised right next to Rhinepark with a lot of green space and bike tracks around. Do you want to get wilder and grill with friends in a beautiful riviera with trees and sand? Head to Poller Wiesen, Rodenkirchen (follow Uferstraße) or Groov in Zündorf. If you are ready to make some weird surrealist pictures head to a free open air museum Skulpturenpark. You can visit the Zoo and botanical garden (Flora) with your kids right next to it and head to the “right” side of the Rhine with the funicular. Are you in mood for recreation after shopping? Head to Stadtgarten with their jazz club and open air biergarten (check out the cocktails at Monkeys in front - it used to be the best cocktail bar in Cologne with 5.50 euro drinks during the happy hour). The most hip place for students, grilling and partying is Aachener Weiher, an area with a lake in front of the East asian art museum (with a nice garden and a good cafe), where Japan Fondation will celebrate a summer holiday on 22nd of June. If you love being by yourself, just sit with your drink outside at Brüsseler Platz (watch our for the street musicians!)

More advice on eating and partying in the second part... Stay tuned! ;)

Je gaat naar Amphi maar bent van plan ook even in Keulen te blijven?

Schitterend! We hebben enkele tips verzameld voor wie meer wil zien dan alleen maar de kathedraal. De meeste plaatsen die ik hier noem, haal ik uit mijn eigen kennis van mijn thuisstad, maar ik heb raad gevraagd aan enkele andere locals, kwestie van de verantwoordelijkheid te delen. ;)

Hier gaan we dan...

Musea

Wist je dat de musea in Keulen samenwerken met het Amphi festival? De volledige lijst vind je hier. Alle musea zijn het bezoeken waard, maar ik wil toch mijn twee favorieten even eruithalen. Als je houdt van etnologie, vreemde klederdrachten en akelige maskers, dan is Rathenau Joest museum de moeite waard. Ben je een fan van pop art/moderne kunst? Dan is het Ludwig museum een absolute must! trouwens, ook het cafe/restaurant van het museum is een bezoekje waard. Zeker voor de lunch op weekdagen ;)

Shopping

Hoewel de Schildergasse een bekende wijk is om te shoppen met de internationale merken, kan je ook naar het meer alternatieve Belgian quarter gaan, voor de meer lokale hispter design. De meeste van mijn Belgische vrienden gaan naar de Duitse winkelketen DM (neen, het is niet wat je denkt, het is een afkorting voor DrogerieMarkt) voor goedkopere make up. Klaar voor een nieuwe outfit? Dan kan je rechtstreeks naar Art of Dark, de scene shop in Keulen. Je vindt er "motleyblakc"-kleren, maar ook homemade specialiteiten, zoals zelfgetekende goth comics (poets je Duits op) en een waaier aan huisgemaakte honingwijnen, en hun eigen festival. Meer daarover in het tweede deel van dit artikel.

Parken en recreatie

Hier heb je geluk - Amphi wordt georganiseerd net naast het Rijnpark met heel veel groen en fietsroutes. Wil je wat wilder doen en een bbq organiseren met vrienden aan een mooie riviera met bomen en zand? Ga nar Poller Wiesen, Rodenkirchen (volg Uferstraße) of Groov in Zündorf. Als je zin hebt om vreemde surrealistische foto's te maken, ga dan richting het gratis openluchtmuseum Skulpturenpark. Je kan een bezoek brengen aan de dierentuin en de botanische tuin (Flora) met je kinderen, die liggen er vlak naast op de rechteroever van de Rijn en je kan ernaartoe met een kabelliftje. Heb je zin in recreatie na het shoppen, Ha dan naar de Stadtgarten met de jazz club en opnlucht biergarten (probeer zeker eens de cocktails bij Monkeys vooraan - dat was vroeger de beste cocktail bar in Keulen met drankjes aan 5,50 euro tijdens het happy hour). De meest hippe plaats waar studenten bbq's en feestjes organiseren is de Aachener Weiher, een geied met een meer voor het East asian art museum (met een mooie tuin en een goed cafe), waar de Japan Fondation op 22 juli een zomervakantie zal vieren Als je graag jezelf bent, zet je gewoon met je drankje buiten op de Brüsseler Plzat (let op voor de straatmuzikanten!).

Meer advies over eten en feesten volgt in eht tweede deel... Stay tuned! ;)

10.11. The Mission + Department S @ De Casino - St-Niklaas - B

11th of July 2017, 17:15

EN

On Friday, 10th November, you will have the chance to see two legendary New Wave bands at the beautiful De Casino venue, The Mission and Department S!

The Mission is the brainchild of composer/singer/guitarist Wayne Hussey and bassist Craig Adams, who earned their credits as core members of The Sisters of Mercy. Their dark and bombastic Gothic Rock is somehow linked to the eighties but still leaves a pitch black print on the soul today. The band knew turbulent years and many different line-ups, but anthems like 'Tower Of Strength', 'Wasteland' and 'Butterfly On A Wheel' remain standing as tombstones after all those years. The band currently celebrates its thirtieth birthday with a tenth album 'Another Fall From Grace' and a '30th Anniversary Tour'.

So a date in the East Flemish mecca of the New Wave cult could not be skipped!

Department S originated at the intersections of punk, funk and pop. The band - then led by singer Vaughan Toulouse - became famous with with the iconic song 'Is Vic there?'. Unfortunately, the band disappeared in 1991 … but today, 26 years later, the cover of Alvin Stardust's "My Coo Ca-Choo" was released, with Mark Bedford of Madness as guest musician. With this and the upcoming release of the career overview album '45 Revolutions' Department S has clearly found its second breath!

10.11. The Mission + Department S @ De Casino - St-Niklaas - B (Facebook)


NL

Op vrijdag 10 november kan u alweer twee legendarische New Wave bands aan het werk zien in de prachtige concertzaal De Casino, namelijk The Mission en Departement S!

The Mission ontsproot uit de breinen van zanger Wayne Hussey en bassist Craig Adams, die eerder hun strepen verdienden bij The Sisters of Mercy. Hun donkere en bombastische Gothic Rock is inherent aan de jaren tachtig en laat een gitzwarte afdruk na op de ziel. De groep kende turbulente jaren en veel verschillende bezettingen, maar sterke nummers zoals ‘Tower Of Strength’, ‘Wasteland’ en ‘Butterfly On A Wheel’ blijven als een grafsteen overeind. De band viert momenteel zijn dertigste verjaardag met een tiende album ‘Another Fall From Grace’ en een ‘30th Anniversary Tour’. Een datum in het Oost-Vlaamse mekka van de New Wave kon moeilijk uitblijven.

Department S ontstond op de kruispunten van punk, funk en pop. De band - toen onder leiding van zanger Vaughan Toulouse - brak door met het iconische nummer ‘Is Vic there’. Jammer genoeg werd het al in 1991 stil rond de groep, tot plots 26 jaar later de cover ‘My coo ca-choo’ van Alvin Stardust werd gereleaset, met Mark Bedford van Madness als gastmuzikant. Department S heeft, met het overzichtsalbum ’45 Revolutions’ dat dit najaar uitkomt, duidelijk zijn tweede adem gevonden!
