Kommen und Gehen: Dear Reader

Kommen und Gehen: Dear Reader

Die Stadt verändert sich mit den Menschen, die kommen und den Menschen, die gehen. In Kooperation mit jetzt.de stellen wir jede Woche Künstlern, die nach München kommen, ein paar Fragen zur Stadt. Diese Woche mit: Dear Reader.

Where do you come from and what are you usually doing there?
I come from Johannesburg, but have been living in Berlin for the last 3 years. When I'm not on the road or working on music (or music-related admin) from my apartment in Neukölln, then I like to hang out in the park with a book or go swimming or cook for friends. Once in a while go out for a night on the town and dance like there's no tomorrow. No matter where I am I make sure to get my weekly fix of Game of Thrones. So all the boring, normal things everyone else does really.

What are you looking for in Munich?
If it works out my way I'll get to dip my toes in one of those amazing lakes you have that are so clear you can see the bottom. But I guess on this trip the main aim is to have a fun, intimate evening of music with friends and fans.

What have you brought us?
Some winding tales about a South Africa of old, accompanied by bob-able beats and ferocious four-part harmony. Oh, and a lot of bad jokes in between!

Which person in Munich would you like to meet?
The ghosts of Sophie and Hans Scholl.

What are you going to do after the concert?
My guess is we'll drink some delicious Bayerisches Bier with some old friends from Munich.

Which clichee about Munich do you like best?
That every lady in Munich has at least 3 dirndls in her cupboard.

What comes into your mind when you think of Munich?
A memory of a fun afternoon where I explored the city with a friend and we rode up and down again and again in an old paternoster lift.

How could Munich make you stay?
I guess if Munich gave a me a wooden cabin with a mountain view next to a lake, and installed all my favorite people as my neighbours, wild horses probably couldn't drag me away.

How do you want to be remembered in Munich?
As that goofy girl and her great band who set people's hearts and imaginations ablaze for an hour and a half on a Thursday night.

Die Rubrik "Kommen & Gehen" in Kooperation mit jetzt.de erscheint jeden Donnerstag
