What are your plans for the end of the week in Leipzig? Tonight – Thursday (March 10th) – at 8:30 I’ll be at Poniatowski, Kreuzstr. 15, watching BrewSebs perform live. The band is described as “uniquely old school… The EP Different Songs’ dances and sings but is thoughtful about desire, illusions and analogies funky, with the subtle touch of jazz and blues, always close to the pulse of rock music.”

Facebook tells me there’s more going on tonight around town. For instance, Richy Rose & Bros at Hilde tanzt, Georg-Schwarz-Str. 20, at 8 – a quartet of voice, keyboards, bass and drums; free entry AND Sekt (!); and Noches Latinas im Beyerhaus, Ernst-Schneller-Str. 6, for Latinos and people from other cultures to chat, share ideas as well as laughter, and dance together – talking from 8-9 p.m., dancing and partying from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. This is now a regular Thursday evening event at Beyerhaus. Diversity proliferates in Leipzig events, as on Friday (March 11th) at 7 p.m., the Afrika “IN” Motion series opens at Kultur Café Leipzig Ost, Eisenbahnstr. 107. There, participants will “indulge in African food, African music and most importantly African culture” through the socio-cultural initiative.

On Saturday (March 12th), in particular, you won’t run out of interesting things to do if you’ve got the energy. There’s a reading flashmob to celebrate 25 years of Leipzig Liest (Buchmesse), at 2 p.m. in the Marktplatz. Then from 6-9 p.m., the Leipzig International School, Könneritzstr. 47, is hosting a benefit concert – free entry, donations welcome – for UNICEF, with live music, snacks and drinks on offer. You can also listen to a choir and orchestra perform Bach music at Thomaskirche at 7:30 p.m.– Johannes-Passion in der Thomaskirche – or go to a big music festival right here in town, 10 Jahre Band Clash Das Festival, with an announced 24 acts, on 3 stages, in one night at Täubchenthal, Markranstädterstr. 1.

Marjon’s tip:

Sunday (March 13th) Kids Flea Market at Kulturhaus ‘Sonne‘ (in Schkeuditz): Special second hand market, held four times a year, for every thinkable child-related item, like clothes, toys, strollers, books, bikes etcetera. Opening hours are 10:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00. After lunch most traders have swapped for new ones, so it is worth sticking around! More info (in German)
