Want some name-dropping? In the Theaterkantine of Berlin’s Hebbel Am Ufer (HAU), Jochen Distelmeyer (Blumfeld) strolls toward the counter after Tuesday night’s event, Jens Friebe sits in front of a drink at the table. Holger Hiller (Palais Schaumburg) stands in the hustle and bustle, dressed as always in fine threads. Christiane Rosinger (Lassie Singers) joins in, while a hypnotic version of "Vollig losgelost" plays. By the way, Michaela Melian (F.S.K.) is among those at the DJ booth. This after-show party could pass for a class reunion of German pop.
