Dearhearts, Welcome to Sofa Salon! It seems the summer is finally returning to Berlin and what better than to celebrate with some Music in lovely Kreuzberg.

Well, Sofa Salon #17 was AMAZING. Thanks to the SAND Journal crew for their organisational nous and all the readers and musicians who made wonderful performances for us. We had a great audience, too. At 6 hours, we were tired and hungry by the end (thank you, felafel!) but it was a very relaxed and lovely day.
Our musicians were: Roller One, Monty Sparrow, Waywardbreed, Andrew McCubbin and the Hope Addicts and Jimmy Tait. Our performers included Sunny the Magosopher, C.M Scholler, Becky Crook, Julian Smith-Newman, Sophia La Fraga and Shane Anderson. Check out the web links on the right to get a further fix of goodness. We witnessed incredibly moving moments, wry, sly and, surreal and funny moments. And everyone enjoyed the marvellous hof at Pedram’s apartment. Thank you all.
I think there will be more Sofa Salon/SAND collaborations in the future.
This is the last Sofa Salon for 2010. I hope to see you there!
