hey artlover and music freaks, i´ve been VERY busy, so i owe you some posts, but first things first:
i stumbled over this amazing band a few years ago, my friend devi, who also is a blogger ( go here:
and she was like: “natascha, we have to go to see this band, they have costumes and bodypainting on stage,and the music is brilliant!”,here is a bit more about that.
and my friend devi and i went there and i was happy to live paint with the band at the show.
i arrived around 8pm at the venue, got to the merch table to be brought to the backstage area. this really is not as exciting as it sounds, just a room with some mirrors and some old couches. the band was already getting dressed, alix was doing her make up, trash was getting his glow-eyes-skirt ready and i was handed a black morph suit and a mask. YAY COSTUMES! i brought some of my own paint, but they also had some (in the process of painting i mixed them later). they had no volunteer to be the human canvas this time,but i got a big canvas right next to the stage in front of the audience. the band started playing and my “job” during the first 4 songs was to walk through the people and creep them out a little bit. thanx to the mask i was wearing, that was a lot of fun. most people back off immediately when you come near them and look weird.
the music …oh the music, this band creates such beautiful music, it was really not hard to paint with this music. the music practically painted my painting…does that make sense?
[i got these pictures later from TRP fans via facebook (THANK YOU, you know who you are)]
i painted a treehugging girl on a bleeding tree, don´t know where she came from…well,yes i do…she came through the music!
when i began to paint the blood dripping from the ripped roots of the tree the band stopped playing for a minute or so (it felt like forever) and trash was like: “*sigh…beautiful…let´s just stand here and watch the painting…” it was absolutely silent…i was so grateful to wear a mask,because i was smiling all around my head… it did not feel uncomfortable, it felt weird and great and i loved it ;).
trash also loved the painting and they took it with them. i could do that every day, it was so much fun. a guy asked ME for an autograph, how weird is this?

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.
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 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.
That’s it for now. More will be revealed as I blog, my friends.
I’m excited to get started.
All the love!

Come see Alfred’s Donut Heart play the Bowie Tribute Berlin!
main event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/192579187761295/
We will soon have the unbelievable opportunity to express how much the legendary starman’s music means to us in a huge show with an all-star line-up at Lido! Joined by special guest guitarist Chris Harney, we’re going to rock some of our favorite Bowie tunes with shiny space suits, big hair, theatrics, and visuals by Ceven Knowles, so don’t miss it!!! See the main event page for all the performers, including the illustrious Peter Bywaters from Peter and the Test Tube Babies. The whole thing will be hosted by that sexy, comedic force to be reckoned with, Liliana Velasquez!
Heartfelt thanks to madman Brian Burgess and his wonderful partner in crime Pia Maria Goossens for putting all this together, and believing in us…
***Please come, tell your friends, and get your tickets now because it looks like this will sell out!***
IMPORTANT: this is the biggest stage we’ve ever dreamed of, so we need our people in the FRONT to cheer us on…no lurking!
ich bin leider nicht in berlin, aber ihr müsst da hingehen,ok?
this video and the reaction of the artist ob stage brought tears to my eyes, seriously! it is THAT beautiful!!!
