Music is to be listened not written. I have learned this hard lesson as I was endlessly scrolling through the endless arrays of essay, books and reviews about music for my master’s studies. I am a graduate of SPS. So I wanted to connect my studies with social sciences knowledge. This is why I am writing this blog.
So here is my short story. Enjoy the blog. Feel free to comment, bash, love, hug etc.

Deserfest 2017 / Berlin
Starting from 2014 I attended Berlin Desertfest
festival regularly until 2016. In 2016, it was sold-out. Being a regular metal
head who buys tickets at the very last minute I was a quite bit of surprised. In 2016 I
missed Electric Wizard but I made it up by watching the almighty Sleep in 2017.It was worth every euro paid, every km that
was flown and every hurt in my muscles while I was waiting for them to
The only downside of Berlin
Desertfest was there were four stages. Two of them were two-minute walk from
the main and the foyer stage. Being the greedy guy I am, I wanted to see all of
the bands. That did not happen.So I had
to stick with what I know. I chose the bands which were most familiar to me.
Although this was not tiresome as the previous years I immensely enjoyed watching my favorite bands play. I hate to pick favorites but John Garcia ruled the stage. When they

story short go and check out Desertfest. I have met immense amount of people
and made quite bit of friends.Although
they were not the best at organizing this year I am still happy to meet old
friends and meet new ones.
Cassiopeia ( one of the other venues) I was watching an ear wrenching karaoke show after the Sleep show . A South American girl started talking a mm from my ear, shouting and asking if
I wanted to sing “ Children of Grave” with her. I nodded and smiled.“No.” I said. “I will not sing Children of
Grave with you, it’s difficult and you
will sound so bad. I am not ready to embarrass myself on stage...yet” Quickly investigating and finding out that she
has a boyfriend I became more disinterested but nevertheless I wanted to see how much she sounded bad while singing the
After hearing her sing I have to tell you this; She should be water
boarded and put on trial on United Nations Committee for violating such a
beautiful song. Anyway Karaoke sucks. But I managed to save one guy from her
and got me a free cd. It’s from a band called Distant Sun. It does not sound
too bad. So short lesson from this story is you can save a buddy from a drunk
attention seeking girl and you can get a free cd. It’s a possibility. So be on
