The Blood Arm to Play Free Show on Berlin’s U-Bahn Metro Train

Indie rockers The Blood Arm are to play a free acoustic gig on Berlin’s U-8 metro line, this Saturday, 19th May. Admission will be the cost of a U-Bahn ticket.

Described as a public event on Facebook earlier today, the band has announced that all contributions from the show, presumably from their most generous fans, will go towards the recording of the band’s new album, Sister City, which is due for release later this year.

The U8 line, which runs through some of Berlin’s most famous neighborhoods, including Alexanderplatz and Kottbusser Tor, stops at 24 different stations, taking roughly an hour from start to finish. Keyboardist Dyan Valdés and singer Nathaniel Fregoso, playing acoustic guitar, will attempt to play a different song at every stop on the U8 line.

The show will be taped and put on the band’s Pledgemusic page, where the band is also attempting to raise more funds for their new album, said to focus around the Berliners’ craaaaaaaaaazy plight in L.A. The band will also be donating 10% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross.

Sister City will be the first full length release since 2011′s Turn and Face Me.

If you happen to be lucky enough to be in Berlin this Saturday, the show will definitely be one of the more interesting gigs to see this year.
