Support the small venues

I prefer concerts in small venues rather then the big arena concerts, with world brand bands. In the small places You are much closer to the stage and the performers, than sitting ½ a mile away and watch everything on a screen. And generally speaking I prefer to stand up at a concert. If you cant dance, its not my kind of place.
Another thing is the prices of the big concerts. It often cost 6-700 kr. and going up to 1000 kr. for a ticket. I would think it would be cheaper, when there are more people? If you are selling 10.000 or 45.000 tickets then it should be cheaper than the 120 tickets they are selling at a small venue. In the small places it cost 50 – 100 kr. I know there is a lot of crew and the show is bigger, and there is more security at the Arena concerts – But where is the money going? Into the pockets of Live Nation, who are the worst concert maker.
So you wont find me at Parken or Royal Arena. No matter who is playing. There are many reasons to find a smaller place. The beer is both better and cheaper. Halleluja and praise the Beer.

Cinema
If you are feeling board back home in your sofa, its possible to get some inspiration about what to do about it.

A good dance evening at Lille Vega is Peruvian Dengue Dengue Dengue. The combination of local rhythms like landó, festejo and crioullo with West African and electronics makes it an incredible fine concert.

Monday 18th
Perlemor – Gry Bagøien is an old Friend of mine, and now she is back in Copenhagen in Kind Of Blue in Ravnsborggade. Its a bit jazzy, and also a bit weird.

Tuesday 19th
I guess it will be entertaining in Pumpehuset, when Oliver Tree drops by. His Live shows should be incredible, and his videos are funny and pretty self ironic. The music is alternative Electro Pop. Check it out.

For some Swedish Jazz / Soul / Pop , Then Bo Kaspers Orchestra is the answer. Its brilliant musicians who has been playing for ages, and here they are at Hotel Cecil.

Wednesday 20th
For some Real Southern Blues, hear is your chance. Sagaray Rayford is the real thing, so join the party at Amager Bio.

There is female Rock for you at Lille Vega, when Le Regrettes are entering the stage. There is a lot of energy in the concerts, so go ahead and make your Wednesday special.
