This weekend, Speicher will be coming to a water reservoir near you.

Speicher is a two-evening show with six artists of eclectic backgrounds, put together by the appropriately named Bohemian Drips. It will be set in the underground foundation of two water towers that are a staple of Prenzlauerberg’s scenery. Among Berlin’s oldest, they were completed in 1877 and in use until 1952. After being abandoned for decades, the towers were recognized for what they could offer in unique acoustics, boasting an 18-second reverberation time in the larger reservoir and 4-6 seconds in the smaller reservoir. In the weeks leading up to the show, the artists have been given access to the ancient edifices to rehearse and customize their sets to the particular acoustics. Considering what we know of the mixed bag of musicians, we’re expecting performances to run the gamut of catchy, hypnotic, and psychedelic. These are the types of shows that we live for.
