Tattoos, Torsos and Tans

Cool off

According to CNN Copenhagen is the best city destination where you can go swimming. The weather right now is perfect for taking a cooling dip in the harbour, or to go to one of the beaches. The official harbour pools with life guards are opening up today, June 1st. But who cares? You can practically swim anywhere you want in the harbour.


The oldest tattoo shop in the world is in Nyhavn. Dating back to 1884. The restaurant next door wants to close it, for a bigger kitchen.   Nyhavn was until the 1960´s known as the red Light District in Copenhagen, but now it has changed into being a Tourist trap. It is in Nyhavn 17, you can find it, hidden behind alle the chairs and tables from the restaurant. There is a support party on saturday for the tattoo shop. The former king Frederik lX got some of his tattoos here.


Howard Gelb and Giant Sand is a legend from the 1980´s . Now he lives in Aarhus (Met a girl from there ;-)) and he is playing saturday in Lille Vega. So it is a change to see a really great musician in a not so big venue. There is also a small concert at Beat Records around the corner from Vega.

And now for something completly different. In Ungdomshuset there is a punk evening headlined by Guddommelig Galskab (Divine Madness) It is cheap and dirty and funny. Also June 1st. 

Distortion is continuing at Refshaleøen, but now you have to pay an entry fee. So Nørrebro and Vesterbro is safe again. 🙂 .

And Folkets Hus in Stengade, Nørrebro is opening up again. That is today June 1st. all day and evening.
