Ana’s tips:

11th Dec  ► Rhonda at Moritzbastei

This Hamburg band I really like and once saw performing in Leipzig is coming to Moritzbastei this Friday! Check out more details on the event’s Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/events/143146616043081/

16th-18th Dec ►Weinachtsvorlesung Chemie – Chemistry Christmas lectures at the University of Leipzig

Funny, crazy, popping and bursting, color-morphing, theatrical, unpredictable: These special lectures from Uni Leipzig’s Chemistry Department are likely to leave you talking about them long after and craving more. They tend to get full, so get there early. More details, on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Weihnachtsvorlesung-Chemie-Uni-Leipzig-111403632313920/

Maeshelle’s tips:

twin effect

10th Dec ► Improrambazamba with Ushcis Erben, Twin Effect @ KulturLounge Sachsen

It’s cold out, so come drink hot wine and eat hot apple strudel, homemade cookies, and other seasonal goodies at the KulturLounge, Dresdner Straße 25.

Watch improv theatre from Die Uschis Erben and then listen to the acoustic version of “Twin Effect” Gerogie und Lasha. Afterwards, the RambaZambaCrew DJ will get you heart going.
