Stew’s tip this weekend:
6 August ►”Lose Skiffle Gemeinschaft Leipzig- Mitte” at Gosenschenke ohne Bedenken
Now, I am no fan of Schlager music, but after seeing these guys I now know it can be upbeat and fun if borderline cheesy. Check this free MDR supported gig out. Band plays from 7-9. Free admission. Menckestrasse 5
6 Aug 7 – 9, Menckestrasse 5
7-9 August ►Poetry 2015
Last year I went to this festival in VOGTLAND and it was amazing! In a nutshell, you camp out, meet new and wonderful people, hear great live music……….and on Saturday you pick up trash that’s been dumped in the woods. You come away feeling so uplifted. more info
