In late 2019, having already toured in Europe earlier in the year, Laura Carbone took her band from their home base in Berlin on their second tour of North America that year. The “Empty Sea – North America Tour” was a 6,000 mile, 15-show, 3-week cross country trek from Los Angeles through the American south and midwest to the East Coast. They finished their stay in the US with a performance in New York before heading up to Canada for a series of shows culminating in a featured performance at the Pop Montreal Festival sharing the bill with luminaries including the legendary Nick Cave and Laurie Anderson. After returning to Berlin and barely over the jetlag, Laura finished off a landmark year with a live nationwide live performance on the acclaimed German TV show “WDR Rockpalast” in October, followed by her final concert of the year sharing the main stage at Berlin’s “Synästhesie Festival” with international luminaries The Black Lips, Stereolab, Deer Hunter and A Place To Bury Strangers.
Laura had dedicated 2020 to writing and recording her 3rd studio album before returning to the US and Mexico for more scheduled shows. Then came Covid, Lockdown, standstill. Not content to simply “stand still”, Laura persuaded the decision-makers at WDR to let her release the magnificent Rockpalast performance from the previous year as a live album. She realized that in a time when people had no opportunity to enjoy the experience of a live performance, immersing themselves in the joy and energy of the sound created by such a performance could offer them some solace in the moment, and hope for the future.
The album release in December of 2020 was greeted ecstatically by fans and the press around the world, and has so far produced two Top 10 singles on the German Alternative Charts.
In early 2021 Laura Carbone was given the opportunity to name and curate a festival – Cosmic Dreaming.
The Show will be her first full band performances in 20 months and introduce new band member André Leo (Wombed / Medicine Boy) who will join Brodie Myles White (Bass / Vocals), Jeff Collier (Drums / Vocals) and Mark Eric Lewis (Guitar / Vocals).
The Line Up features Sometimes with others,
The musical influences merge into a Sound Noir carried by guitarist Mika Bajinsk’s timelessly glacier-melting voice. With cellist Marie–Claire Schlameus, double bassist Yoyo Röhm (Mick Harvey Band/Martin Dean) and Kristof Hahn (Swans/Pere Ubu) on lap steel guitar, Bajinski heads a band that can confidently point to a wealth of musical experience and should be considered the most interesting new band to come out of the Berlin swamp at the moment.

and a very special poetry reading debut by Thi Ngoc Thai from her book „Moon in the Making“.
Lucy Kruger will be another very special guest joining this dreamy evening.
We hope you’ll join this evening of celebrating together with live music from the heart that finally is allowed to happen again
