If you wonder what the Copenhagernes are talking about these days, then here is the answer: One of the greatest danish Sing and song writers – Kim Larsen – just passed away at he age of 72. He was living a big part of his young life at Christianshavn, so you will see flowers and candles in the streets, and Vor Frelsers Kirke in the center of Christianshavn has been playing some of his tunes on the bells.
On friday it is celebrated with af parade going from Christianhavn to the Town Hall square, with loads of beer drinking – Cigaret smoking and danish mucisians are playing live cover versions.
Are you sometimes walking around and looking up in the sky and wondering what is up there? Well you can find the answer at: Science and cocktails. It´s a concept where you get something to drink and then listen to some really long haired talks. This time it is about Black Holes, and here are some of the Questions: Does time come to an end inside black holes? Do black holes exist forever? Did the universe have a beginning? Or was there something before the big bang? Is there only one universe or are there many? Can we hop from one universe to another? Why does the universe bother to exist at all? ? What was Stephen Hawking’s quantum theory of the origin of the universe? (Copy paste from webside)
At all places this is taking place at Byens Lys, the Cinema of Christiania. Be square and be there 😉 Its on saturday and free entrance, and the cocktail are cheap. Cash Only!
And while we are up there in the sky, I will mention that the Louisiana Art Museum in Humlebæk, north of Copenhagen, has an exibtion about the moon. It has received a lot of good reviews in the papers, and should be worth seeing.
The Copenhagen PIX Festival is still on, for the next week and there are loads of fantastic films to be seen. I wish I had more time.
This week Lygtens Kro is celebrating the Oktober Festival, with loads of german beer and Bratwurst, Jodle battles!!! and good concerts. I am at the Banditos (US) on wendesday, and might also pop by at Saturday with Rambo Banjo and the Slickpickers. But also on thursday and friday there are concerts.
On wendesday you should go for Alice where you can find and absolute incredible concerts when 1990’s etno/techno Transglobal Underground meets the Albanian wedding orchestra Fanfara Tirana.
