According to Ivan Hewitt of Telegraph.co.uk, "Berlin has become a magnet for musicians and artists of all kinds, drawn by the low rents, amazingly low cost of living, and of course the extraordinarily lively arts scene. And increasingly it has become a magnet for visitors, who can soak up a world-beating array of museums and concerts that caters for every taste."
The blog today is a personal one. It is not about the vigorous classical or jazz scene in Berlin, but rather the independent music scene being created by an influx of youth from across Europe and the globe. Having never been on that scene, I am relying on descriptions I have gotten that it is a lot like Williamburg and other parts of Brooklyn here in the states, with all sorts of indie bands, clubs, and late night activities featuring cutting edge music.
