I saw some high-brow musicians perform last night at the most LOW BROW place I've ever been to. Kunsthaus Tacheles looks like a crazy squat – walls lined with graffiti, pee smell, a makeshift bar in the hall. Located in the old Jewish Quarter, this big building is five stories of concrete. It's now an art space but formerly housed a department store. It even had a pneumatic tube system for sending inter-building mail.Anyway…members of the Deutsche Symphonie Orchestra Berlin got together to kick around some Stravinsky for about an hour. They performed in a concrete hall with an audience on folding chairs. You can hardly imagine two different things that go so well together. I don't know crap about Stravinsky so I spent most of the time wondering what the building has been like during its lifetime. It was built in 1908.
