Hi. I’m Rah. Rah fookin’ Hell
I’m the new one. Today I was kindly added to the New Artist Army blog by Natascha Artworx.
So let me introduce myself…
I’m a musician. My favouritest thing to do in the whole world is to play the drums and to make people dance!
I also play a bit of ukulele.

I enjoy making people happy in general. It makes me happy. I like to make this scary world a little brighter so I do what I can. And I think this blog is a good opportunity to contribute at least a little.
I live in Berlin and am well connected to the music, art and comedy scene here. So I will keep you updated on all the hot shit that’s going down pretty much every day in Belin. And I’ll feed you information about events and projects all over the planet of artists that are worth checking out.
I currently play in a quirky all chicks uke rock band called Donut Heart. Nat recently wrote about a show we played with Sh…Diam in Hamburg at Linker Laden.
And about our CD release gig in October 2016.
Our album is available for streaming and to download right here on Bandcamp.
Ad Astra Per Absurdum… This is Donut Heart.
Once a month I host an open stage called Uke Boogie at Lagari in Neukölln. As the name already gives away, it’s an open mic night for mainly ukuleles – and other instruments that aren’t guitars (it’s on every second Thursday of the month, next one: April 13. (I’ll tell you more about that in a separate blog post)).

I’m also involved in the Freudian Slip Club Berlin founded by my wonderful friend Liliana Velásquez. The Slip Club deserves a separate post sometime in the near future. Hang tight.
I’m volunteering for the NGO Sea Shepherd trying to save marine wildlife. Because when the ocean dies, we die. And mateys, it does not look promising, let me tell you that.
What else is there people could be interested in knowing about me? I’m 25 soon, I study event management at Deutsche Pop Akademie and I’m in an on-off relationship with veganism.
I grew up on a pretty remote farm near Eschwege (which is somewhere in the middle of Germany). In 2013 Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra came to my dad’s barn to play a set and party with 70 strangers in the middle of nowhere. That’s where the name Eschvegas comes from which I still like to use when I refer to my hometown. I like the irony as Eschvegas and Las Vegas could hardly be more different.
Viva Eschvegas. Amanda Palmer on a pile of pretty people.
That’s it for now. More will be revealed as I blog, my friends.
I’m excited to get started.
All the love!
