Indie Pop’s got the Blues in Leipzig


Leipzig will be dealt a double-Swiss deal in the shape of indie pop acts Black Sea Dahu and Long Tall Jefferson. Obscure names for two very talented artists, aka Janine Cathrein and Simon Borer, who will be gracing UT Connewitz with sweet handmade music tonight, 6 February.

There’s a lot to like about both acts. Best of all, obviously, that both will be playing in one place, the well-known Connewitz venue – and the grapevine has it that there are still tickets up for grabs. Here’s why you should go:

Two great indie pop acts in one go

You like indie pop bands like alt-J and Daughter? Then it will be easy to fall in love with Black Sea Dahu. Her song “In Case I Fall For You” (recorded with a full band) will be an instant love affair.

Black Sea Dahu is going to be supported by Long Tall Jefferson, a guy who’d be worth the trip down to UT Connewitz in itself. Check out his song “Stay a Little Longer” to get impressed with his astute singer/songwriting and pronounced penchant for pop tunes.

Delving into Janine Cathrein’s mystical world, you’ll soon be haunted by white creatures when self-confidence is lost, summoning Dahu, the four-legged Alpine fairy-tale goat to disappear within the Black Sea. You can tell by her moniker and lyrics that you won’t be delving into shallow waters either. And when you take into consideration that Janine’s been brooding over her new album for the past four years before she went to Norway to record it, you get the impression that she really did pour her heart into producing her debut White Creatures.

We’re sure it’s going to get atmospheric, emotional and a whole lot of fun tonight at UT Connewitz, Wolfgang-Heinze-Str. 12a, Leipzig. Look forward to a night with two outstanding talents. Doors open at 7 PM, tickets go for €13.20.
