Berlin at Bimbo’s 365 Club – March 21st

L.A.’s iconic synth electro-pop pioneers, Berlin, make a stop on our stage after six years away from San Francisco toting ‘Animal,’ a brand-new 12-track album. ‘Animal’ explores contemporary electronic dance music while remaining true to the groundbreaking sound and signature vocals that continue to define the band. “New music is the lifeblood of anybody making music. It inspires me and it inspires others,” declares Terri Nunn, Berlin’s charismatic and enigmatic vocalist.

While ‘Animal’ is Berlin’s seventh album, a combination of ten compilation albums, EPs and live albums round out an impressive discography that so far has yielded twelve gold and platinum album awards. The band made its initial impression on the music world in 1982, with their seductive single, “Sex (I’m A…),” and their synth-pop classic “The Metro” from the platinum-certified debut EP ‘Pleasure Victim’. Berlin’s first full length LP, ‘Love Life’, hit in 1984 and was certified gold. In 1986, Berlin topped the charts with the unforgettable, intimate and strikingly beautiful love song, “Take My Breath Away.” The ballad’s defining role in the Tom Cruise film, “Top Gun”, has also helped solidify Berlin’s everlasting place in American pop-culture. Nunn’s ongoing influence in music earned her the #11 spot on VH1.com’s “100 Greatest Women in Rock,” but she’s also an accomplished actress, nutritionist, and personality. Along with comedienne Wendy Liebman, Nunn currently hosts the radio show “Unbound with Terri Nunn” on 88.5 FM KCSN Los Angeles. Despite her many creative outlets, music, Berlin and touring remain Nunn’s first love. “I always looked at music as passion,” reflects Nunn.  “That’s where the real joy comes from, and music is such a huge part of connecting people. It’s the way… to bliss.”

Don’t miss Berlin’s return to San Francisco on March 21!  Tickets are still available.
