So last Thursday I had decided I would go out and explore the nightlife and club scene in Frankfurt. I had done a little research and found some spots that claimed to play Hip-Hop so I jotted a few down and planned to go alone. It was a weeknight and I didn’t think anyone I knew would be down to hang out on a “school night”.
I received a call from a new friend asking what I was up to. I told him I had planned to go out and explore, to which he was surprised since it was a weekday. His comment about the day of the week led me to believe that he was uninterested in accompanying me. But after I told him where I had planned to go he offered to take me somewhere better.
Ultimately, we ended up starting at a spot called the King Kamehameha Club but it was closed. Later, I found out that the party was likely moved to a boat on the River and open Wednesday nights. I’ll have to check that out soon, because the river at night is beautiful. We then tried the original spot I had planed to go to called Cooky’s. It was 5 Euro per person to get in, and once we were in, we realized that we were the only ones there. Literally no one else, but he and I. #fail This night was not panning out like I had imagined. We ended up just walking to Sauchsenhausen and smoking at a hookah spot for a bit before heading home.

This weekend I went to an open mic event in Annapolis. It featured a live band, and a painting artist. I love live bands. The event was open to spoken word artists (poets, lyricists, rappers,) and singers and featured a painter working throughout the entire show. There were several stand out performances. My favorite was a brilliant singer/songwriter from Baltimore by the name of Christen B. Her voice can be heard on Sound Cloud and her Acoustic Soul sound is a cool blend of Yael Naim and India Aire. I can’t wait to hear more of what she has to offer.
