Event Details

DECOLONOIZE is a Berlin-based collective of BIPoC alternative musicians and music lovers. We are committed to organizing inclusive shows and events and creating safer spaces for a diverse community that is underrepresented in the Berlin punk and alternative scene.

About Proper. (US):
Following 2019’s critically-acclaimed sophomore album, I Spent the Winter Writing Songs About Getting Better, Proper. is making their return with The Great American Novel.

“At the end of the day, what I wanted to do with this record is take Proper. in a direction that would surprise people on first listen, but end up making complete sense on the second or third listen. I think a lot of bands tend to go more pop but I wanted to make something both challenging and undeniably catchy,” Garlington said. “It all goes back to Black genius and how it’s ingested by the predominantly cishet, white male crowd. If they’re going to be a voyeur to the Black experience, I wanted to strip away all the cheeky song titles, lyrical inside jokes, and optimistic singalongs. I want them to hear this record and learn about our identity crises, our aimlessness, how many friends and family we know that are dead or in jail by 25. How, at eight we were told we were gifted but by 11 we were told we’re dangerous.”

About Shamaniacs (Berlin):
They say there’s a fine line between insanity and wisdom.
The SHAMANIACS are used to crossing that line back and forth, telling stories made of Rock and taking you on a brain-melting psychedelic journey.
