Autumn has hit the country, and we will turn more towards indoor activities. The live music venues are opening up again, and we are reaching the last outdoor performances.
If you wonder about the high security level in the center of Copenhagen, it is because President Macron of France is on a official visit. It is tuesday and wendesday.
Freedom Music Festival is a 6 day indoor thing starting Tuesday. Taking place at Koncertkirken in Blågårds Plads and at Cinemateket at Gothersgade. It is mostly something like improvisasions from all over the world and just a couple of concerts at day. Organised by Troels from Insula Music record shop.
Another small festival is Copenhagen Song Writers Festival , lasting for five days and starting on wendesday. A lot of hopefull local talents with a guitar are turning up. Might be here we are finding the next Leonard Cohen 🙂
It is at Raahuset – Onkel Danny Plads at Vesterbro.
On friday you can find this Little concert at the Cafe Globen where the Fado of Portugal will meet the folk music of Scandinavia. It is nothing big, but it sure will bring you in a good mood. My good friend Anne is playing the Violin, and I can say without lying, that she is the best in Denmark with a fiddle
Slap stick – tight rope
With something inbetween a clown and a super tightrope walker this is something special to watch. Miettes from France are performing, and there are free tickets here in the weekend. Its at three different venues, and I think it will an experience of a lifetime. I have booked tickets to Thursday August 30th . Arranged by Metropolis.
More bodies moving
Origami is the japanese art of paper folding. I dont know how it is possible to combine Origami with shipping containers and dancing. But this is what is happening at Ofelia Plads at the harbour and Skuespilhuset (The Playhouse). It is Saturday and Sunday september 1st and 2nd .
More Live music
Three of the best live music venues are opening up after the summer break. Loppen with Local Indie band Two Trick Pony playing on friday Augsut 31st . The day before GZA from Wu Tang clan is performing, but it is sold out. And there is something for you Black metal hearts when danish Solbrud is playing Sunday sepetember 2nd. This could turn out to be a very good concert.
At Alice you can find the new program with world and jazz music. And here I will mention the Thurday concert with ghanesian King Ayisoba, and especially the friday concert with Saharan desert blues Bombino. Its sold out, so you have to try your luck at the door, or check facebook for tickets in excess.
And Ungdomshuset in Nordwest are making a 10 years birthday month with all sort of concerts and other events. Remember the Folkekøkken every thursday at 6 o´clock with vegan food. Friday 31st there is a really super line up, speareheaded by Lucy Love playing grime, but you can also find Copenhagen punk legends President Fetch and War Of Destruction.
Back to the future
What to do on a sunday with a hangover? For the nerds you can go to Cinemateket and the Back to the future film triology. 6 hours of film starting in the afternoon, and going well into the evening. Its in english with danish subtitles.
