Diving For Sunken Treasure – Gypsy Punk in Berlin

Gypsy punk Diving For Sunken Treasure Berlin-1

It is hard for me to justify heading out to a show on a weekend night. Coming from Austin, Texas, I thought I had heard it all. I had become incredibly jaded, I didn’t think there was anything new out there for me, and I felt dated in a sea of young twenty somethings when heading out.

Little did I know I would giggle like a 15 year old fangirl when I got to see my friend’s band – Diving For Sunken Treasure – at Kaffee Burger in Berlin. The spark ignited again.

We walked in a bit early and I could tell this place had character. The vibe was fantastic. With cheap German beer in hand, I could tell it was going to be a great night. Before we knew it it was PACKED with people shoulder to shoulder – and all sorts of people at that! Punk rock kids, hipsters, hippies, general populace… (don’t ask me where we fit in there)

And with the first chord the crowd went nuts. Screams, cheers, and whistles were heard while everyone broke into dance. A huge smile came across my face.

This… THIS is what I’ve been waiting for.

My trigger finger went crazy and I took a bazillion photos. They had charisma. They had talent. It was really REALLY good.

I wish I could take them back with me to Austin and showcase them at SXSW.

I wanted the world to hear them.

So I’m doing what I can do and sharing the love.

I found my heart in Berlin. I hope you can see why.

Enjoy some pics from the show and play the following YouTube video to get some moody awesomeness flowin’. 😀

    Amazing shots! and i like their music. I’m pretty aware that artists/bands don’t like being compared with other bands so I won’t,.. I can’t think of any band with close music genre as they have anyway, except for Gogol Bordello.

    • Erica April 16, 2013 at 8:55 am #

      HAHA! I know. I’ve seen Gogol two times now – these guys are a bit different. Completely different energy on stage but still a whole bunch of fun.

    Awesome! Will check if they are playing when I am in Berlin in two weeks time.

    • Erica April 16, 2013 at 8:56 am #

      I hope they are Tammy! I think they may be on tour at the moment but if you get a chance, make sure to check them out.

    • Tara May 6, 2013 at 11:12 am #

      Oh they did play! May 4th in Berlin. Bummer I didn’t see this sooner!

      • TammyOnTheMove May 6, 2013 at 8:07 pm #

        Doh! Had left Berlin by that day anyway. Next time! 🙂

    Looks like this place is great for hang outs.
    I would love to bring my friends here sometime.

    • Erica April 16, 2013 at 8:56 am #

      DO IT! Super rad venue.

    Gotta love when one band reignites your interest in new music

    • Erica April 16, 2013 at 8:57 am #

      I think it is that I was just SUPER bored with everything out there. Thank God for the internet so I can keep up with smaller bands like this. <3
