It’s the first day of the month, the time our friend cizenbayan shares her live music picks with you. As usual, you can listen to the artists mentioned below on the Canım Istanbul SoundCloud. If you want to buy tickets for any of the shows, you can use the affiliate links at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
They say what you do the first day of New Year will reflect what you do all year. Is it true? Of course not, just remember last year! Once more we will make plans to have the best night, but what about its aftermath? Let’s be realistic: a long, cold January awaits us after a night of ‘excess’ followed by a nasty headache.
Congratulations if you were not hospitalized on New Year’s Eve, now let the celebration continue. If you are ready to party on January 2, attend Barış Manço’s birthday celebration hosted by Kabus Kerim at Babylon Bomonti.
Bant Mag. organizes Demonation festival for the sixth time on January 8-9-10 at Arkaoda, Babylon and Kargart. Presenting a selection from the indie music scene, Demonation is the perfect choice if discovering new bands is among your New Year’s resolutions.
On January 9, Sofar’s attention-grabber Nilipek and our raki companion Can Kazaz will perform together at Salon IKSV.
The middle of January is when we get used to writing 2016 on things and truly leave 2015 behind. Mark it as Viennese producer Peter Kruder (from the famous downtempo duo Kruder & Dorfmeister) will be at Babylon Bomonti’s “Midnight Sessions” to turn the venue into a huge nightclub.
On January 28, Oscar and the Wolf will be at Babylon with their dark, magical tunes. Dance the night away at Indigo on January 29 with Terranova, an electronic dance music duo by Fetisch and ME based between Paris and Berlin.
Happy New Year everyone!
