5-6 Oktober 2017: Reinhard Kleist in Amsterdam


Thursday October 5th, the graphic biography of Nick Cave, Mercy on Me over Nick Cave by Reinhard Kleist will be presented at the Concerto Koffie stage!

Music Journalist Jan Vollaard (NRC) will give an introduction about Nick Cave and Reinhard will be present to sign his book!

Musician, poet, writer, actor: Nick Cave is a modern renaissance man. In Mercy on Me, Reinhard Kleist tells the life and work of one of the world’s biggest starts. In his expressive, associative style, Kleist shows Cave’s development from his early days as a musician with The Birthday Party, through the Berlin punk scene of the eighties to the megastar he is today. A resounding graphic novel about music, love, insanity and punk, and what it means to be an artist.
