Dancing in September

There are still a lot of outdoor activities even though we are in the middle of september and its getting colder.

Dancing
Detour is a dance festival taking place mostly at Frederiksberg at the Edison Theater. Its a lot of new urban dancing – Hip Hop – Only Female – and much more. Most of it in the coming weekend and with a different program every day.

Dont fear the weird
We all now this about weirdness. It is somehow repulsive, but yet, you cant help to be a little attracted to it. Letting yourself lose control. And it is theme in many movies, like Scorseses Taxi Driver. I have some friends that I call weird, whatever they are suffering from. Weirdness is the theme for the four day film festival that is presented in Cinemateket,  and arranged together with different psychiatric organisations. Runs from Tuesday September 11th to Friday 14th .

Folkets Hus in Nørrebro, has just reopened after being closed for almost a year, because of trouble with the local gangs. Wendesday they are making a birthday party. With vegan food, music, films, quiz and storytelling.
If you like a more loud evening, go to Raahuset, Vesterbro  for some italian Ska / punk band, with two danish warm up bands.

Thursday in Mayhem, the electronic scene in Østerbro, near the Candy Factory. The perfect spot for a industrial evening with bands from Australia and Germany. Arranged by  Bragagild.

Also very experimental is Embryo, that is legendary Jazz / Kraut Rock band formed in Germany 1969. Also very Frank Zappa like, but non of the original members are left in the band. They are playing thursday at Alice in Nørrebro.

In one of my favorite bars – Lygtens Kro, Nørrebro – they are having a visit from France when The Baked Beans (What a name for a french band) is dropping by, playing there 1960´s psychedelic garage rock, and supported by Danish FYR. Thats on thursday 14th .

More french is at the Opera in Christiania, when they have rappers dropping by. Could be a fun evening with Hip Hop in french. Its on friday

More friday evening is the small cafe of Kimia, in Blågårdsgade, Nørrebro, where they are having Reggae icon Princess T giving a DJ set. Its often very nice with these evenings in Kimia. Hygge and so so.

Loppen has Fastpoholmen playing. The are danish/ swedish and are a local band. (Like in very very local). Folk and a bit of ethnic. Expect a big party.

This weeks Death Metal is out at Ungdomshuset, with bands playing Saturday and Sunday. It is part of the big birthday party that takes place in all September. Remember ear plugs!!!

Street party at The Red Square

In The Red Square at Nørrebro there is a big street party celebrating the etnical divercity of the neighbourhood. It continues on Sunday, when the main street – Nørrebrogade is closed, so there is chalk drawing at the street, a flea market and shops are selling for cheap prices. A nice day. This is because the annual Half Marathon are closing the street anyway. So why not make it into a party.

Mexico is far away, but on Saturday it comes a bit closer when the Mexican Embassy is celebrating the Mexican independence day. It with bands, food and I except som tequila as well. And not cheap stuff they sell in the supermarkets, but the real thing. At Blågårds plads. Nørrebro.
