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.

In Underwerket, you can have an evening with Punks Undead. An Irish band – Nilz – and a Swedish Band – Existenz – are performing with warm up from Local NimbWits

From Austria are visiting two bands. Savannah and Minus Green are Heavy/ Psychedelic/ Stoner Rock and its of course a Free concert at Lygtens Kro

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 !!!

Photo: Nexö at Nostalgifuratu in Rockmaskinen last Saturday. Not the last time I see them.

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.”

Music is a lot of things, and at the other end of the spectra of rhythmic Music, you find the Copenhagen World Music festival. As the names says, its from all continetnts and in many different genres, so go and ahead and find your favorite musical part of the world, and enjoy the live performance.   It’s the fabulous Kim Jezus who is the chairman, doing an incredible job with the whole crew.

And this weeks street Party is in Istedgade on Saturday. With circus for the Kids and cold Hipster beer for the adults.

Thursday 5th

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.

Tuhaf is a Danish / Turkish ensemble Playing Funky Anatolian Acid rock, with singer Berrin Bas in the Front. Its a really cool band with a good vipe, that I have enjoyen many times. Its in Kulturstation Vanløse.

Friday 6th

Kill Your darlings

Sometimes you have to look deep and realise. Like right now for me . I just dont have time to do the blog. At least not in this week, and not the following. And maybe not before August. I am just to busy living my life. So the next couple of months the updates will be shorter and more sporadic. I am not promising anything, but will just give you the most important news, that I can find. It could be the new way of doing things…

But instead of the busy life lets celebrate, that it´s a normal Danish Summer, with rain and sunshine, and wind in the hair. It feels almost like normal.

But anyway all the live Music venues are closing down, leaving the scene to the big and small festivals, that you can find. I have not been able to find a guide to all the festivals, so if you know of one, then give me a hint.

K – Town Hardcore festival is the most interesting Punk Metal event of the year, taking place at Ungdomshust. D61. Punks from all over will gather together and have a party, ending on Sunday with Bike Wars and more Punk in Ungdomshuset. The 3-day Tickets are sold out, but if you come early there is still one day tickets for sale. Cash Only

In Loppen, they have Frigjort Festival on Saturday and Sunday. Its mostly Bands from the Kolding area that are perfoming. So its upcoming young bands, that are getting there chance in a lifetime.

Thursday 13th
Gorilla Angreb are at Underwerket. The Melodic, but still Dirty Punk band is one of the best in Copenhagen, and its sold out, so you have to be lucky to find a ticket. Its a warm up for K-Town festival.

Friday 14th
For some Saharan Desert Blues head for Loppen and Mdou Moctar. You can feel the dryness in your nostrils, while listening to the simple accords, and basic journey into the Saharan desert landscape. Its from Niger he is bringing you the sound of the guitar in the wind.

At matrikel 1 on Højbro Plads, the celebration is for the B-day of Beat Box. With DJ Mashti and Friends playing Techno, this is the night, that will end with you dancing into the rising sun, and the empty streets of Copenhagen.

For you African music lovers, there is also some good news. In Operaen you can find International Rap Duo and Creative Directors M3NSA & Wanlov the Kubolor aka FOKN Bois are back with a new project and this time they are laughing at themselves for a change. bring cash

Steven Malkmus from legendary Indie Rockers Pavement, is in town with his new band The Jicks. Its in Lille Vega, and could be a very good intense concert.

Sunday 16th
As Usual the third day of K-Town is celebrated with Bike Wars at Blaagårds plads. Bike Wars is building insane bikes out of scrap metal, and ramming them into each other. It’s like robot wars. But with bikes. And real people. And punks. And bands Playing loud and disturbing Music. Its great fun.

The Dwarves is Garage, Grunge and Punk. Its at Underwerket and they are supported by two bands. The Dahmers from Sweden, and Kill the Rooster, that are very Local
