Los Angeles, CA
This event is 18 and over
Part Time Punks is proud to present the 1st-ever LA appearance of PINK TURNS BLUE, post-punk legends from Berlin, Germany. Formed in 1985, they quickly put out their first LP, If Two Worlds Kiss (1987) expressing a sound reminiscent of new wave with very dark undertones and use of synthesizers, only to become one of the pioneers of the developing subgenre of first darkwave (Meta 1988) then cold wave (Eremite 1990, Aerdt 1991). After many hits like "Michelle", "Walking on Both Sides", "Your Master Is Calling", "The First", "I Coldly Stare Out", "Touch the Skies", "Catholic Sunday", "Missing You", "If Two Worlds Kiss", "Moon" and "Seven Years", they split up in 1995. In 2003, they reformed to appear in a few festivals. Because of the success of the reunion, they released a Best Of album called Re-Union, in 2005 their studio album Phoenix and in 2017 “Ghost”. The latest Album is called “The AERDT – Untold Stories”
Pink Turns Blue
Started in Cologne, Germany in 1985 as a project of Mic Jogwer, Thomas Elbern and Marcus Giltjes playing new-wave. The band stopped in 1994 with the release of a best of cd.
In 2004 they've been asked for a reunion concert at the Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig, Germany. So that year they played two festivals and 1 club show with the original line-up: Marcus Giltjes, Ruebi Walter and Thomas Elbern with Brigid Anderson as guest.
Now they've started again with a new line-up since Thomas Elbern was too busy with his band Escape With Romeo.
