“How do I get booked?”
// Just show up

// Sign up opens at 19:00 (first come, first booked)
// The first performer will begin at 20:30
// No soundcheck – so be ready. Slip on, blow minds, slip off.
“What can I play?”
This is entirely up to you. Out of respect for our neighbours:
– you may NOT use loud percussion and loud bass-heavy signals into the PA.
– you are welcome to use our backline, which includes:
— piano
— generic vocal microphones
— a small terrible PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables (new one coming soon!)

“But what about Covid-19”
Yep, we know. No more than 25 people may be in our stage area at any time. Those wishing to enter after that capacity has been reached can enjoy a drink or a taco in the back room or outside on our sidewalk seating until more spaces become available.

“Anything else?”
Donau115 is a very fun but weird musician’s musician kind of bar, come expecting oddballs.


Mi, 7. Juli 
Sophie Sutton

‘…someone who deserves to be on the biggest stages bringing smiles to the masses.’ -We Close Tonight

Described as an artist with a thorough understanding of her art, Welsh-born and Devonshire-grown Sophie Sutton draws inspiration from various artists and genres, from the jazz-influenced Lianne La Havas to the folky elegance of Lucy Rose. Vulfpeck’s funky and soulful Theo Katzman has also played a huge role in Sutton’s approach to songwriting and performing and, in April 2018, after a writing collaboration together, Sutton found herself on one of the larger stages in Berlin opening his sold-out show in Frannz Club.

Alongside intuitively creative melodies, Berlin-
based artist Sophie Sutton is a skilled vocalist
who accompanies herself with a sophisticated jazz-pop
guitar style. Her lyrics are hard-hitting yet
graceful, with personality and vulnerability felt
throughout. In Summer 2018, she collaborated with Danish audio company, Libratone, who invited 10 international artists into the renowned studios of Funkhaus in Berlin. Sutton’s song ‘So Much So Little’ was recorded in this live-session and released in January 2019.

Back home in the UK, Sutton has been described as ‘Devon’s finest female singer-songwriter’ by James Santer at BBC Introducing and, since moving to the German capital in early 2017, has attracted significant attention from both locals and visitors alike. 


Do, 8. Juli
Nissen Mosh

Asger Nissen – Alto Saxophone, comp.
Valentin Gerhardus – Piano
Thorbjørn Stefansson – Bass
Marius Wankel – Drums

Nissen Mosh plays fresh original music of Danish Saxophonist Asger Nissen. Since arriving in Berlin in late 2017, Asger Nissen has established a solid name for himself around the German Jazz scenes. The music of Nissen Mosh reflects some of Asger Nissen’s favorite impulses from old, modern and contemporary music in a fresh and relevant as well as curious and inspired expression.
He is joined by some of his closest and favorite musicians; Valentin Gerhardus, Thorbjørn Stefansson & Marius Wankel. Together they make vigorous music filled with harmonic and melodic spontaneity and playfulness supported by a solid rhythmical foundation of tight grids, vivid grooves, liquid beats and raw power. All of this with a recurring inspiration from songwriting genres.


Fr, 9. Juli 

Tal Arditi – (guit)
Nathan Ott – (dr)

Guitarist Tal Arditi and Drummer Nathan Ott met through the Berlin music scene and quickly connected to explore the possibilities of the drums/guitar duo setting.
Improvising structure as a conceptual main element while abandoning categories of genre, the Duo’s music is a highly intensive live experience – naturally flowing, dynamic and dramatic.
Loxodon_prism is an impromptu exploration of a big spectrum from adventurous cinematic soundscapes to grounded rhythmic communication.
Join an unpredictable journey, where the only rule is playing the moment and being prepared for the unexpected.



Sa, 10. Juli
Johannes Bigge Trio
Johannes Bigge – piano, composition
Robert Lucaciu – double bass
Moritz Baumgärtner – drums

The Johannes Bigge Trio explores the borderland between contemporary jazz, alternative pop and free improvisation. Their music is full of dynamics, emotion and surprising contrasts and plays skillfully with paradoxes. The compositions are equally complex and simple, emotional and sincere, of clear structure and full of encrypted images. The band so far released two albums on NWOG-Records and played numerous national and international clubs and festivals.

Plague Fun: Corona Rules

Case numbers are low, but the bug’s still around so we will be taking many measures to make sure we’re all doing our part to end the pandemic once and for all.

1: OUTSIDE SEATING- To join us outside, you must provide contact tracing information. We will keep this information safe for the required amount of time and destroy it with fire once that time has ellapsed.

2: INSIDE SEATING- To join us inside, you must provide contact tracing information as above. Additionally, you must provide either a negative test result from the previous 24 hours or proof of full vaccination, without exception. If you want to see a show inside, plan accordingly.

5: CLOSING TIME- We will shut down the bar at midnight (00:00), which means last call for drinks will happen around 11:30. Please treat our staff with patience as they enforce this rule. We hope to be able to party with you without time limits soon, but for a bit longer we must follow these rules. Be patient. It will be worth the wait.
