Backstage Tristesse

A photo book by Sebastian Szary

Did you ever wonder what a life on tour looks like?

Sebastian Szary, member of Modeselektor and Moderat documented backstage areas from all around the world during the Moderat tour 2014. Enjoy a photo book with more than 100 pictures of "Backstage Tristesse".

"What can I say ...? I'm not a man of many words. But I'll try: Being "on tour" feels like an almost carefree life - kind of passive and without any real commitments. You live in the present. And tomorrow will pretty much be like today. Always the same. Everything for music. It's great and at the same time dull, but always fun." (Sebastian Szary).

"Backstage Tristesse" is now exclusively available at the Monkeytown Records webshop

On December the 5th MONKEYTOWN RECORDS are proud to present the MONKEYTOWN FEST at the Berlin TEMPODROM. The plans have been on the drawing board for sometime, and now the perfect time has come. It’s no wonder, with the label turning five we have all the more reasons to celebrate with a massive bash.

Expect the unexpected. This special venue will play host to an equally unique event. Not the usual club and DJ party, but rather a concert night of a different kind.

MODERAT will play the final show of their successful 2014 tour at the MONKEYTOWN FEST.MODERAT’s second album “II“ (released on MONKEYTOWN RECORDS) combines the melodic contours of APPARAT with the stark power of MODESELEKTOR’s pulsating basslines and thumping drum loops. They have charmed audiences Europe wide playing packed concert halls full of happy punters.

THE NOTWIST will join MODERAT on stage; these so-called old concert hands are always very much anticipated. Despite coming from different musical angles THE NOTWIST and MODERAT are probably the most successful indie live-acts from Germany on the international market at the moment. The concept behind this evening will make the differences between electronic and instrumental music disappear.

The London trio DARK SKY will present their debut album “imagine“ for the first time live in Berlin. Far more than a simple club act, they fit perfectly into this line-up.

We are happy to also welcome SIRIUSMO to the MONKEYTOWN FEST with one of his rare live sets, as well as a secret guest.

December the 5th will definitely be an outstanding night.

Tickets for the MONKEYTOWN FEST will be exclusively available at for 2 weeks, starting with September 23th / 10am. After that date tickets will be available at all known ticket offices.
