OneBeat at Brunnen70
Wedding basement bar Brunnen70 (guess the address!) will showcase live acts, VJs and DJs playing beats, electronica and dub. We’re most looking forward to a live set from Wermonster, who, among other things, creates tracks from sounds recorded around Berlin… but we imagine the foundant au chocolat cupcakes will also be a big draw.
