Started in Cologne´s venue King Georg back in 2008, ‘Always coming back to you’ (acbty) is a series of concerts curated by Jan Lankisch. The Name is taking from a song of Scott Walker`s 1967 debut album „Scott“. In 11 years we brought over 330 artists to our city. Some of them in their early stage of their careers like Mac DeMarco, The War On Drugs or Ty Segall or legendary artists who remain a major influence to a younger generation like Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth, Stephen Malkmus (Pavement), Silver Apples or Kim Fowley.

The series is funded by “Kulturamt der Stadt Köln” (the cultural office of the City of Cologne)
