While it gets darker and greyer…

We have reached the centre of November and we are still alive. Only 4 months to spring time. So what else to do, but go inside in the cold weather, and enjoy the fabulous night life in Copenhagen. The Christmas beers are in the shops (I am not talking about Tuborg) and soon we will be bathing in Gløgg with to many raisins, and will be eating Pebernødder until we puke. And then we know its X-mas. And The War will be over.

Its both intelligent and dumb. https://www.facebook.com/events/384532755553385/

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

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. 🙂
