The cultural organization of the city of Athens has announced the performance schedule for the first four months of 2008 for their new “multi-space” in Neos Kosmos. The new cultural venue opened in November and promises to be a must visit on the agenda of anyone visiting Athens.  The Neos Kosmos Cultural Center, or “Multi-venue” as it is called in Greek, will host FREE live musical and theatrical performances on an almost daily basis and, while geared toward bringing the arts to residents of Athens, the events are always open to the general public, visitors and travelers included.

The line-up features many well known and beloved Greek performers, and an opportunity to experience a Greek musical event is as much a cultural experience as it is an opportunity to share first hand in the Greek passion for music.  In compiling the list of performers and the musical genres to be covered over the next four months, it is clear that this as of yet undiscovered venue will be a popular destination for both Athenians and travelers in the know.

For the complete line-up of free concerts, ranging from traditional, rembetika, and laiko to pop rock, contemporary and international see our Happening page, all performances are free and begin at 8:30 pm.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
