Dates and locations:

17.1. Marburg – Café Trauma
18.1. Stuttgart/Schorndorf – Manufaktur
19.1. Freiburg – Café Swamp
20.1. Frankfurt/M. - Mousonturm
21.1. Köln – Gebaeude 9
22.1. Hamburg - Uebel & Gefaehrlich
23.1. Berlin – Festsaal Kreuzberg

More information re. times and street locations to follow, as well as related events and attractions (e.g. Mark Stewart looks likely to be deejaying after the event in Berlin)

And in further Deutschland-related new:

Rip It Up and Start Again was voted #6 Book of 2007 by the readership of Rolling Stone Germany, jostling amidst fiction by Cormac McCarthy, Mark Z.Danielewski, and J.K. Rowling.

Rip It Up was also selected as Music Book of the Year by two critics at the weekly magazine Die Zeit.
