SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Gallon Drunk, Cassiopeia, 7pm
Nick Cave, arguably one of the more prolific singer-songwriters in the rock music world, once referred to Gallon Drunk as being “cool as fuck.” Talk about a celebrity endorsement.
Now, nearly 25 years after the formation of this London-based band, the group is still going strong, though things haven’t always been easy; it was early last year when band member Simon Wring passed away, leaving the band in limbo.
The former four-piece band made a decision to continue on as a three-piece, and this year saw the release of Gallon Drunk’s seventh album, The Road Gets Darker From Here.
Now out on a European tour, the group is bringing its swamp rock sound to Berlin. Natalye Childress
