Goettingen 13.8: Info und Mobiveranstaltung Antifa Camp Dortmund

The antifa camp in Dortmund is only two weeks away, and for this reason there is an info and mobilization meeting at Goettingens Flaming Star on Monday evening.

Not only is Dortmund, and especially the Dorstfeld neighborhood of Dortmund in which the camp is to take place, a Nazi stronghold, but the camp is also scheduled to coincide with one of Germanys largest yearly Nazi demonstrations. The turnout is expected to be massive, and you should all come. Fire and Flames will also be present, and even the Nazi shops are mobilizing for the camp:

This Weekend: Flaming Star Anniversary Party, Fight Back Festival, Smiley Benefit Show, Antira Cup Hamburg, …..

There is just too much going on this weekend, and too little time. From the First Anniversary Birthday party of the great and glorious „Flaming Star,“ to the 5th edition of the Fight Back festival in Nuernberg (with a demonstration before in solidarity with the imprisoned Deniz), to a benefit show for Smiley in Berlin with Opcio K-95, to the Antira Football tournament in Hamburg (also with Opcio K-95), to a concert (Militante Pazifisten and Contra Real) and mobilization meeting in Goettingen against the coming Nazi demonstration in Hamburg, to the Maloka festival in Dijon….

We begin close to „home,“ and at the event where most of Fire and Flames and friends will be…

The rest of us, will be making the yearly trip to Nuernberg, where we will be holding a table, here…

More importantly, before the festival, there will be a demonstration in solidarity with Deniz, who has been imprisoned now for over a month after being arrested at an antifascist demonstration, accused of „attempted manslaughter“ for allegedly hitting a police officer with a flagpole at a previous demonstration in Nuernberg some weeks before.

Speaking of imprisoned antifascists…

And speaking of Opcio K-95, they will be playing the next day in Hamburg at the Antira Football Tournament concert…

Tonight, and back in Goettingen….

Last but certainly not least, is Malokas yearly festival in Dijon. Organized by good people, and this year with an excellent lineup. We were there last year, and are very frustrated not to be able to make it this year. Have a look at the lineup here.

Fire and Flames Music in May/June: Brixton Cats, Patchanka, Wasted Youth, Argies, Opcio K95

After a long period of silence, there are lots of news surrounding Fire and Flames label bands in the coming months. There are exciting news regarding tours, releases, and merchandise from Brixton Cats, Patchanka, Opcio K-95, Wasted Youth and The Argies.

Brixton Cats sadly did *not* play at the Revolutionary 1st of May demonstration in Berlin due to an illness in the band. But they will be releasing their long awaited second album probably sometime this month or next. More news as it comes.

Speaking of releasing…Patchankas newest album is being released on June 22nd, with a big CD release concert party in Copenhagen. On this date, Fire and Flames will also be at the event, presenting Patchankas new merchandise. As with Konecho, again designed by „Corte“ and powered by Fire and Flames. Here is a small preview of whats coming musically…

And while on the subject of Copenhagen… Wasted Youth, who in the last few days were to be found on stage at the RASH festival in Stuttgart and the 1st of May concert in Nurnberg, will be touring Northern Germany and Denmark this mid-May. You can see the exact tourdates here. Highlight of this mini-tour is of course, at least for us, the „Room Show“ concert they will be playing on Monday May 14th at „Flaming Star“ in Goettingen. This will also be a chance to have a look at the new shirts we produced for the band (which should be online in the coming days).

Hopefully, for the sake of the shop, this room show will be a little calmer than last years one with The Class War Kids…

The show also represents the first part of the „1 Year of Flaming Star Celebrations,“ the second part of course being this…

Continuing on to Opcio K-95….they will be playing later this month in Hamburg. And thats really pretty much all we know. :-)

Last but certainly not least, the Argies are on tour. Which wouldnt even really be much for news, since they are usually on tour. But this time, they are embarking on a 14 show tour of China, followed by concerts in Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia! No worries though, once thats over they are back in Europe for another three month tour! You can see the complete tourdates here.

Konecho CD Release Party, Friday 17:00 at Flaming Star Göttingen

Konecho, the much loved and Fire and Flames supported recording artist will be officially releasing his debut album this Friday at 17:00 at Flaming Star in Göttingen.

This is not only a great chance to come spend some time with us, drink some champagne, enjoy some good music, and generally hang out, but it is also a good moment to pick up the CD (and one of two great Konecho shirts designed by Fire and Flames designer „Corte“) for significantly less than on other ocassions. Translation: To celebrate the release…the CDs and t-shirts will be available at a discounted price on Friday.

Havent heard Konecho? Want to get to know the person behind the music? Want to get excited about the release? Below is the CD release edition of Göttingen radio show „Tha Prophecy“ with Konecho as special guest, and of course quite a few tracks from the album…

Convinced? Want the CD? Not in Göttingen? Not a problem! This way please…

Göttingen, October Events at Flaming Star: G20 and Repression in Canada (Test Their Logic Concert!), Anarchism in Quebec, Soccer vs The State!

Flaming Star has quite a few interesting events planned for the course of the next few weeks, which we would like to share with you…

Samstag, 8. Oktober 2011 – Vortrag 19 Uhr, Konzert 21 uhr

Vortrag und Performance von “Test Their Logik” (Hip-Hop) –
Der G20 Gipfel in Toronto – Mobilisierung, Aktionen, Repression

„Test Their Logik sind Musiker und Basisaktivisten aus Toronto. Auf Grund ihrer Musik und antiautoritaeren Politik sahen sich Test Their Logik während des G20 Gipfel 2010 in Toronto verschiedenen Angriffen ausgesetzt, unter anderem “conspiracy charges”, die in etwa den deutschen §129 entsprechen.

In ihrem Vortrag werden sie eine kurze Einführung in radikale Politik in Kanada geben. Sie werden berichten, was letztes Jahr im Vorfeld und während des G20 passiert ist und die Nachwirkungen für sie und alle BasisaktivistInnen aufzeigen, die immer noch mit Anklagen wegen Bildung krimineller Vereinigungen durch die Gerichte geschleift werden.“

After the presentation, they will be playing live. It should sound something like this…

Lesung mit dem Autor Mathieu Houle-Courcelles
Auf den Spuren des Anarchismus in Quebec (1860-1960)

„Die Forschungsarbeit “Auf den Spuren des Anarchismus in Quebec (1860-1960)” vermittelt ein lebendiges und ergiebiges Bild vom Einfluss anarchistischer Ideen in der Geschichte Quebecs. Zum Vorschein tritt eine Denkströmung, die bereits lange vor den politischen und kulturellen Umwälzungen von 1968 im Umlauf war. Mathieu Houle-Coucelles lässt exilierte Kommunarden, Maler und Dichter der Künstlergruppe “Les Automatistes”, Antiklerikale der Arbeiter-Universität und jüdische Aktivisten aus Montreals “Jiddland” vorbeiziehen. Dabei schildert er die Ereignisse plastisch und haucht den verschiedenen Protagonisten neues Leben ein. All das ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zur fortdauernden Debatte über das kollektive Gedächtnis von Französisch-Kanada.

Zur Zeit engagiert der Autor sich im Comite populaire Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Quebec City. Diese Bürgerinitiative steht in Opposition zur Gentrifizierung des genannten Stadtteils, bekämpft dort Armut und plädiert dabei u.a. für den Bau von mehr Sozialwohnungen.“

Buchvorstellung: Gabriel Kuhn
Soccer vs. the State: Tackling Football and Radical Politics

„Soccer vs. the State: Tackling Football and Radical Politics“ beschäftigt sich mit der politischen Geschichte des Fußballs, progressiver Fußballfankultur und dem nicht-kommerziellen DIY-Fußballnetzwerk, das sich heute mit eigenen Vereinen, Turnieren und Ligen von Sydney bis San Francisco erstreckt. Dabei werden die Schattenseiten des Sports – Kommerzialisierung, Machtpolitik, Nationalismus – ebenso in Betracht gezogen wie die libertären und egalitären Potentiale. Der Autor/Herausgeber Gabriel Kuhn spielte in seiner Jugend im Leistungszentrum Tirol und in der zweiten österreichischen Liga. Diavortrag mit anschließender Diskussion.“
