Two months have past since the birth of this blog, and we continue our quest of discovering Munich's arts & culture beyond the mainstream. Yet, if it wasn't for other wonderful and inspiring Munich bloggers such as Rachel, the mucbook team or the guys from MunichOpenMinded, we would not even not know where to start. So check out the blog roll we added below on the right, where we assembled some of Munich's most essential and most beautiful arts & culture blog sites, and be inspired!

We are having a lot of fun with this blog, and as long as it stays so, we will continue. So far, our audience is quite small, and we do not really have the means of widening it. But who cares? YOU are here, and that's what matters! You don't even need to like us on Facebook, subscribe to our email feed or share our posts via Google+, or generally tell the world that you found this amazing blog! Just come back whenever you like, you'll find the doors open.

Enough said, here's some action for the last week of November!

Monday, 25 November:
PURA VIDA GYPSY PUNK: To be honest, we were not really impressed by the Arctic Monkeys in Zenith a few weeks ago. In general, we are not very frequent concert goers, and there are others who can tell you a lot more about Munich's vivid music scene. However, there are some gigs that we just cannot miss, and tonight is one of them.  Gogol Bordello is playing Tonhalle at 8PM, and this is Pura Vida indeed! Tickets are still available at about 30EUR. Dancing your feet off is guaranteed!

FELTING: If you've always wanted to learn how to felt, here is your best chance. There will be a free Christmas needle felting workshop at Siebenmachen at 7pm! There are still free tickets available here.

Tuesday, 26 November:
THINK & DRINK: This one unfortunately is only for our German speaking readers, yet we could not ignore it. Cafe Luitpold will be transformed into a philosophical salon tonight, and actors and professors of sociology and economy will discuss "Karl Marx, the bourgeoisie and the 99%", while the audience will drink and think. 8PM, entrance is free, booking advised.      

Wednesday, 27 November:
THEATRE PARCOURS: A co-production of the SPIELART theatre festival, Münchner Kammerspiele and about a dozen theatres from all over the world, SITUATION ROOMS is a "simultaneous video walk" for 20 spectators, constructing a globalised world of governors and refugees. 20 tickets are quickly gone, despite 3 to 4 shows per day until end of November, and you can no longer book any tickets online. However, apparently for almost every show there are tickets left at the box office, so just turn up and try your luck. 

Thursday, 28 November:
TALKING DIGITAL: "It's like Discovery Channel with beer" - that's the motto of the Nerd Nite, a series of talks of nerdy enthusiasts that has been going on since 2009. This time the Nerd Nite (from 8.15pm) is integrated into the Zündfunk Netzkongress 42 (from 12pm), a congress that will discuss our digital past, present and future at the Volkstheater. You can get tickets for the congress and the Nerd Nite here. The topics of the Nerd Nite this time: cryptography, computer games, zombies and existentialism.

MUSIC LOVERS: If you prefer great live music to nerdy talks, this one's for you: Kafe Kult is hosting two fantastic bands tonight at 9PM, the experimental indie band Beißpony from Munich and the "queer feminist trio" Lovers from Portland. Here are the details of the event.

Friday, 29 November:
CREATIVE NETWORKING: Creative Mornings are hosting another talk, this time Maximilian Heitsch will be talking about courage. Max is a founder of the Aaber Award, an independent exhibition platform for Munich's young artists, in which Anna had the pleasure of participating this year (you can read more about it in her blog). Max is very young, energetic and inspiring, we highly recommend this event and feel sad that we won't be able to attend this time. It's free, but be sure to register first thing on Monday, as tickets go away quickly.

Saturday, 30 November:
CULT FILM: Some films run for a day, some for a month, some are so popular that they run for as long as a year, but this one is extraordinary: For more than 35 years "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is screened at Museum Lichtspiele each Friday and Saturday at 11pm. There is even a theme-decorated cinema hall! Sounds like one for the Guiness book of Records? Well, it's in there already.

Sunday, 1 December:
X-MAKERS: Another exciting event by the organisers of Make Munich: XMake Munich. The tickets are just 5€ and there will be plenty of exciting talks, workshops, music, food and other things throughout the day, from 10am until 6pm, Arcisstr. 21, 5th floor. All you nerds and creatives, don't miss out! Anna will be offering a soft circuit workshop on Christmas cards with flickering lights,  accompanied by two wonderful friends from London, one of them a real wearables pro who actually got her into this business!
