SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Chelsea Wolfe, Kantine am Berghain, 9pm
Although she was born and raised in California, Los Angeles-based Chelsea Wolfe has been defying the usual stereotypes since day one.
Armed with a special blend of moody, gothic, droning folk, Wolfe shuns the superficial, pop-infused music of many of her contemporaries, opting instead for the vulnerable and experimental.
To date, she has released three albums, the most recent of which–2012's Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs–made it onto charts in the U.S.
This week, Wolfe set out on a headlining tour of Europe and Russia with her violin player in tow. Her set is expected to showcase a mix of old songs, as well as new ones, and may even preview tunes destined for her newest album, scheduled to be released later this year. Natalye Childress
