Science

All Black Hole nerds, can join the Science and Cocktails that have moved to The Grey Hall in Christiania. The events have been way to popular for a long time, so now they need a bigger stage, and The Grey Hall was the answer. Check it out. Its both intelligent and dumb. https://www.facebook.com/events/384532755553385/

Live music

Thursday 3rd October
There is a new kid in Town!!! Urban 13 is placed under the Brutalistic Bispebuen, and is a new concert and party place. They have built a concert room, so you are not outside in the cold, and it has a raw atmosphere that is not found any other place in DK. WhoMadeWho are performing with Electro Pop Rock Indie something… I am living next door, so I will show up and party with you.

If you are into old school Psych, go for Astrohatch with Guitarist Claus Bøhling. He has been in the game since the 1960 in legendary Danish bands Secret Oyster and Hurdy Gurdy. It comes with a light show, and is presented at Loppen. The perfect place for a concert like this.

Bogfinkevej are from Aarhus, and are the new Danish Lyrics Rap band. They have performed on Festivals and sold out concerts at Vega and Voxhall. Now they are at Pumpehuset.

Bring your Granny for the Grindcore family weekend in Ungeren D61. Its fast and furious on the two Days festival at Dortheavej. And remember ear plugs and cash.

Los Fuegos is an explosive blend of Cumbia, Balkan, Reggae and Rock. So get your dance wear on, and find your cash to go to Operaen at Christiania.

Bisse is playing at Hotel Cecil, with his poetic society commenting Danish lyrics. It should be with an inspiration from Country, an this is an extra concert. The first one was sold out.

You can join your inner movie with Italian Chromatics. They have delivered soundtracks to numerous films, where Drive by Nicolai Refn stands out for us Danes. The Synth – pop – Dystopian universe, can be seen at Store Vega.

Saturday 5th
Speaker Bite Me are the best Danish indie band, and are the darlings of the 1990´s I saw them at this years Roskilde Festival, and they are still delivering fantastic music. The stage at Pumpehuset is perfect for this event.

It will get groovy at Loppen when Cuban Born, Danish based Eliel Lazo and the Cuban Funk Machine will make the Dance Floor electric with the most funky music you can think of. Just what you need here in the cold Oktober.

Brazilian Electronic music with a touch of street fight from the Sao Paulo Underground. The Performances are going to the limit with Teto Preto at Alice.

For followers of Icelandic music, head for Stengade. There are three bands playing and its all sort of electronic 1980´s sound. Both Pop and more atmospheric.

Lone Hørslev is a spoken words performer and auteur. She has been on the road with different musicians and this time its Jesper Meclenburg who are putting the music up the lyrics. A nice evening at Hotel Cecil.

Sunday 6th
Stengade has more Icelandic, but this time its Black Metal. They must be having plenty of time in long dark winters up there.

For the real heavy blues-like Rock, go for EYEHATEGOD in Lille Vega. They have been playing for 30 years, but many Drugs, Deaths, Depressions and Destroys have had an impact. Therefore it is a miracle that you can hear them here today.

48 Years. Happy Birthday Christiania. And a long middle Finger to the Money addicted violent pusher types in the Street

Another week is coming up. The weather have gone into Autumn mode, and I am finding my hand gloves, the warm rain jacket and the winter boots.
Dress up well on Friday when we (You, Me and everybody else) are turning up for the biggest Climate demonstrations by Grown ups. While Greta Thunberg is speaking Thunder in UN, we are not sitting and waiting for things to happen. So meet up at Ofelia Square, by the harbour.

Sports
Its the 10 years Birthday of Copenhagen Roller Derby Team. They are competing other teams in 3 bashes. “All you need to know in advance is that roller derby is hard hitting, fast paced and a hole lot of confusion. ”. The event takes place in DGI byen and Doors opens at 1.30

Live music

Wednesday 25th
At Hotel Cecil they have a visit from US/ Greek Simrit. Its a well sounding mix of Folk, and West African (Salif Keita) rhythms, with a spiritual essence to it. In fact, its not bad to listen to. So this is my Wednesday recommendation.

I don’t like Royal Arena. Its too big, you have to sit down, and the Distance to the stage is enormous. So I am not going to Alice Cooper, but you can still get tickets if you want to see the legend.

Thursday 26th
Congratulations to the good people of Christiania: 48 years today. And a long Fuck off finger to the violent, money addicted dope dealers, who are ruining there own and others life’s. Find somewhere else to do your business. Legalize Cannabis. Its on time.
A lot of the live music venues, cafes and bars are having events. Check out Loppen
Operaen,
Woodstock
Nemoland
Månefiskeren
And there are more party’s, that are not announced anywhere. You can even make your own little party in you mind. 😀

In Lille Vega, they have a visit from the North Carolina band – Between me and the Buried. It sounds like something in between 1970´s Kraut Rock and progressive metal. Check them out, they are something special. Super fine musicians, that have been touring with Lamb of God, Mastodon.

For some Catchy indie Pop, head for Ideal Bar at Vega. From Germany its Leoniden, who are performing with a cool energy. They are big stars down south of the Border, and I bet the bar will be filled with German fans.

Friday 27th
In Ungeren, they have a Post Punk outline – Amanda X from Pennsylvania – USA. Local Enids are supporting with more Post Punk.

Mxrphy is a new rapper on the Copenhagen Scene. Just made a new album – Hafnia – . He is the new hope, and are performing the hold album on Loppen. Maybe its now, you should see him, before he hits the rest of the country. You never know…

Maybe they still have a hangover from the party, the day before, but at Operaen, they just smoke a joint, and feeeeel okay, and are presenting a new party with Brazilian Rhythms from Trypical Cumbria. So Polish up you dance shoes and find your best clothes

Thurston Moore is one of the most influencing musicians in Noise rock. Since The Sonic Youth Days he has been an inspiration for countless bands. Now he is solo with his own band, and are performing at a small place like Alice in Nørrebro. There is an afternoon and an evening concert, and I had a plan to go there, but now i´ve cancelled so I sold my tickets. 😦

For some Electronic dance event, Beat are arranging a party at Matrikel 1 at Højbro Plads. Steen Kong and Kiowa are turning the Tables, and your feet are moving.

Saturday 28th
For new Copenhagen Electro Pop, head for Shy Shy Shy at Loppen. Professional sound, but can they also do it on stage? They have a hit for the score to the Danish DR Doggystyle TV series.

At Alice there is a support party for the Folkradio FM radio station. So a lot of local Folk bands are coming, and you can expect screaming fiddles in your ear. Bring my mind back to the folk party’s in Ungdomshuset in the 1980´s.

You can hit the Dance floor at Hotel Cecil in the late night, with Soul Explosion X. Opens up at 11 PM

Fabled Mind, is a Copenhagen punk band, who are making a release concert at Underwerket in Valby. Its post Hard Core / Pop Punk in there own descriptions. So good that there are new bands in Punk.

Monday 30th
For this Monday I advise you to go to Pumpehuset and listen to French Nouvelle Vague. They are making Jazzy / Bossa Nova covers of old Classics like “To Drunk to Fuck”, “Love will tear us apart”, and “Have you ever been in love” by The Buzzocks. It sounds like a funny evening.

Shokran is the Arab word for thank you, but also the name of a Russian Prog metal band. For the first time they are here in Denmark, and are performing at Underwerket. They are supported by three Bands: Wings Denied from Washington DC, Hanging The Nihilist (DK) and Exelerate (DK)

Tuesday October 1st
There is a Egyptian Movie festival at Cinemateket. Therefore the Cairo based band Lekhfa are playing at Alice. The members are coming from the Alternative Arab scene, and its a blend of traditional Arabic Folk and bit of psych.

David Bowie, Bono, Thom Yorke, The Strokes and Pavement has all named Pixies as a favourite band, and Kurt Cobain, said that this is here he got the inspiration to Loud-Quiet-Loud build up. So in KB Hallen you are invited to a legendary band, who has been an inspiration to numerous musicians. It will be good. 🙂

Copenhagen is coming more alive in the autumn.

Back in 2008, after 1½ years of constant demonstrations, Ungdomshuset opened up again in September. And that is to be celebrated, so this weekend it starts with a Galla dinner on Thursday, and Friday and Saturday there are concerts both at Dødsmaskinen and in Salen. The program is both Hip Hop, Punk and Drum n Bass. Cheap and warm Beers for cash only.

Who doesn´t like a good movie? In Cinemateket they have a Music film festival, with films like Woodstock (50 years), Elvis, Fela Kuti, PJ Harvey, Miles Davis an many more.

Feeling Happy? Well then you can join the Festival of Endless Gratitude, with loads of new and a bit older bands. The location is AFUK´s halls at Enghavevej, Vesterbro. The line up is really good, with experimental and Psychedelic in the centre.

Also at Islands Brygge Kulturhus, they have a Festival. Geyser is “Two nights packed with live music from the indie folk-underground. The festival springs from the monthly singer/songwriter showcase Klub Geyser which aims at presenting upcoming as well as established artists.”

Thursday 12th

When you is the last time you heard some South Korean Surfer rock? No? Well here is a chance in a lifetime, to get that cross on CV, when Say Sue Me, from Seoul are at Loppen. And according to rumours, Korea Is new place to be with Indie stuff.

If you miss good old Post Punk Cure and Bauhaus, the Canadian Actors are your thing. It sounds like mid England in the 1980´s and they a Local support band in Foreign Resort, which is even more Cure like. Its in Stengade, Nørrebro.

In Lygtens Kro they are having Swedish Hypnos on a visit. “Hypnos has their feet in the wave of retro rock drawing inspiration from heavy metals infancy during the 70’s and 80’s. ” warm up is local Taunus.

Friday 13th

For some happy danceable Pop Rock Loppen is the place. Tacocats from Seattle are here, with something that reminds me of good old Junior Senior. Supported by Twen also from the US. Very Indie like.

Electronics of the 1970´s with self-built instruments, and inspiration from Kraftwerk and tangerine dreams. At Alice you are finding Apparat Organ Quartet from Iceland. It moves into danceable rhythms , And sounds good. Supported by Triple x SNAXXX, who are doing more of the same stuff.

Stengade has a visit from Norwegian Death Metal band Blood Red Throne. They are still going strong after 21 years as a band, so this is your change to do some head banging. Another Dead metal band are supporting. Skanderborg are sending wayward Dawn.

Red Warszawa are performing at Amagerbio, with another of their Crazy Shows. Its really entertaining, so why don´t go? Supported by Vrävarna and Demolizer.

For a heavy techno dance-floor, head for Pumpehuset and Københardcore. Its frantic dancing, and a good light show.

Saturday 14th

Crunchy Frog is an institution in Copenhagen. The Record Label have artist like Junior Senior, Raveonettes, Powersolo and many more. The 25 years anniversary is being held in Pumpehuset with bands playing. Also at Byhaven, there will be performances. Seems like the party of the week.

Fastpoholmen is a Danish / Swedish Folk-Reggae-World band. They are really putting up some sweatier concerts, and I like them in a smaller venue than Store Vega. But maybe they have just grown to big for the smaller clubs. Check them out. They are getting better and better.

For some ethnic Hip Hop with world rhythms head for Alice. From Ecuador comes Kingman, who has been living most of his life in the Amazonas Jungle. If you want to move your feet and your hips, this is where you should go.

This week Loppen are apparently only taking non European Indie bands in. This Saturday it is Australia, who are delivering. The Stroppies are from Melbourne, and are on there first tour, after releasing there first album. So they are a new hope for the future. Holm are a local support band.

Halshug is one of the best new metal bands. Since Debut in 2012 they have become more mature , and have slowed down a bit, but are playing just as loud. On the tour they have come to Stengade , and are supported by Deformation, who are more like Hard Core Punk.

Hello Sister ! Hej Søster is a Concert in Vega, taking initiative for bringing more women into Music. Falullah has invited Marie Key, Soleima, Nelson Can among other for this one day festival in Vega. And they are right! WE NEED MORE WOMEN IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS.

Sunday 15th

On Sunday, a Half Marathon Race are taking over the Streets of Copenhagen. But since the roads are closed anyway, Nørrebrogade are making a day of street party’s. And there is a party at Den Røde Plads. So loads of entertainment on your Sunday.

Tuesday 17th

Mystery Lights are said to be one of the best Garage rock bands right now. Listening to them, I have difficulties in hearing the garage part of it, but it sounds interesting like Kinks and a bit of psych. Good guitar work and old School organs. Supported by DYGL, which is Japanese, and more of the same kind. It might be an interesting Tuesday evening at Loppen.

Samba from Hell? Satanique Samba Trio, are at Alice, and are performing Alternative, Experimental Free Jazz samba for your poor ears. And its a 5 piece trio from Brazil. But the name stuck.

Wednesday 18th

Most people – and Clubs – move the birthday to the next weekend. But not in Stengade. Its Wednesday the 18th so why not celebrate with a couple of Australian rock bands. Anyway here are DZ Deathrays and Press Club, all the way from Down Under. Listening to the two hard rock Bands, I think Press club is the best. For 9.99 kr in the entry, this must be the best value for the money of this week.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STENGADE !!!

Indoor Hygge season is starting. With Punk, Death Metal and World Music

One of the years best Metal Festivals are coming up in Pumpehuset: Kill Town death Fest #VII. It runs from Thursday to Sunday, but its sold out Friday and Saturday. At they write in the manifest: “Our focus will be mainly on the contemporary death metal bands of the international scenes …what we think is a selection of the best of the bands out there. … we try to also encompass …more established bands without focussing on headliners as such. We feel that the big bands of the older generations have enough exposure and there is no need for us to bring them in.”

Civic is coming to Loppen. The Aussies are a one of the best old School Punk Bands right now. They have the right sound and attitude. As warm up bands are Planet Y and Situationsfornærmelse. I like Planet Y and has seen them a couple of times. Situationsfornærmelse is a wonderful name for a band and in my ears they are sounding like Dansk Fløde.

Apartment are having a release party, and the organiser – Regns rec – are having other Live names and DJ´s on he Bill. I don’t know them, but it will for sure be an interesting evening. Bring cash for the door and the bar.

Eels (Or just E) are back in Denmark. Last time he played at the Royal Theatre, but now he is are more fitting place: The Grey Hall of Christiania. His text filled with sorrow and pain (and a great humour), goes right to the heart, so I will be at the floor listening to the great band. Supported by Robert Ellis
