Michelberger Music Happening


October 1-2nd, 2016 at Funkhaus Nalepastraße, Berlin

“…So it’s basically ‘creator’s jail’…..but on a volunteer, not arrested, basis, and in the Michelberger.  But still, they’re all kind of under ‘haus-arrest.’   And: forced to play.   Not a bad idea!  I’m liking this a lot.  I’ve written a screenplay like this in the States where they book you into a hotel and don’t let you out until you’re done.  Great room service, tho.  Not as good as Alan, but still good. Kidding.  Not about the screenplay.  That actually happened.”

stargaze is happy to announce a new musical happening in Berlin, taking place at the beautiful Funkhaus Nalepastraße where we’ve spent many hours already recording, rehearsing and working on several projects. We’ve been asked to invite some of our favorite artists and happy to see the likes of This Is The Kit, Käptn Peng and Polica amongst our friends Bryce Dessner, Aaron Dessner of The National, Shara Worden, Sam Amidon and especially curious about new faces like Vincent Moon, Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), Ragnar Kjartansson, Holly Blakey, Lisa Hannigan and many many more.
