SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
TRUST, Berghain, 9pm
The latest installation of Berghain’s “Certain People” – a series of nights, the first of which was all the way back in 2011 – brings Canadian synthpop duo TRUST to the forefront.
TRUST previously performed at Berghain’s next door neighbour, the Kantine, and must have made a stellar impression, because the duo was invited back, this time to appear on Panorama Bar’s main stage.
It makes sense, though. With the combination of pulsing beats, dark wave mentality, and more than a smidgen of pop sensibility, it’s a bit of a no-brainer.
TRUST’s debut album, the self-titled and vowelless TRST came out early last year, with a follow-up on the close horizon. Rounding out the lineup are performances by Berlin-based journalist-turned-musician Anika and New Yorker Zebra Katz. Natalye Childress
