Whew! The week is finally over. After a four-day weekend, it feels like it took forever to get through. This weekend marks the launch of a couple of hot weekly parties, but with this weather, they may be cancelled. It's supposed to rain all week long. But nevermind, we still have things to get you out on the town, and we've included these weather-dependent events just in case the sun decides to grace us with his presence.

The characters are divided into two groups: the Emperor's agents and people inside a bordello. A wonderful story of drama and suspense that you'll want to be part of.
Swiss electronica punk rock band Bonaparte's songs have spread like wildfire after they performed a first show in October of 2006 on pieces of trash found in the backstage area of now legendary BAR 25 in Berlin. They emerged from the party-capital's underground club-culture and developed into a wild rock'n'roll-trash-punk-troupe de force performing over 100 shows a year. Bonaparte remains fully self-produced writing, recording, producing and mixing the music, creating artwork, designing stage-costumes, incorporating photographers and video-artists as members of the live-band on stage and releasing DVDs as well as most recently a 288-page photo-book entitled “Three Years in the Heart of Bonaparte” (2011). Check em' out.
