For danes it is one of the most remembered poems, by Danish poet Henrik Nordbrandt. In fact I think january is worse – but its still a good poem. ;-D
Friday November 9th its 80 years since the Crystal night 1938 in Nazi Germany, where the Nazis smashed jewish shops and it was another step towards the Holocaust. And now its more important than ever, that you show yourself as an anti-racist and meet up. Never agin a Crystal Night is at Gammeltorv and starts at 5 PM.
Sunday november 10th you can renew your music collection at the record faire in Nørrebro Hallen, find the best records. Traders are coming from Germany, Sweden Holland, and the locals off course. Runs from 10 AM – 3 PM
Sorte Firkant Musicfestival
This week Stengade in Nørrebro has there own music festival in, with a program of four days – Thursday to Sunday – and a lot of excellent music. Check it out.
The big thing is Lee Ranaldo – former Sonic Youth – playing on sunday. Check the program, it is really impressive, and its a good deal to buy the 425 kr full ticket.
Tuesday there is a pretty good concert at Hotel Cecil in the center of town. Dream Vife from the UK, is a three girl band, and as I can hear it, the inspiration comes from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the indie sound of the 00´s. Support is local Velvet Volume .
Jpegmafia Is a new act from NYC, and its a sort of Industrial Rapping, if it exist? Very political, sometimes rough, sometimes poetic. But always interesting, always on the alert. Its at Loppen, Christiania.
In Amagerbio you can meet Dan Baird and the Homemade Sin Former Georgia Satellites guitar hero, so its south state rock, n´roll. First concert is sold out, but lucky you! Theres a new concert the day before. 😀
Dirtmusic sounds like its a mix up of everything. If you can imagine a mix of Australian postpunk, desertblues from Western Sahara and Turkish psych, then you are getting near. Its at Alicecph and it will be GOOD.
Tim Andresen is the co-owner of Culture Box, the number one venue for electronic music. And he is also a really cool DJ, so find your dance shoes and get moving, to one of the best Danish Acts right now.
Hank von Hell is former lead singer of legenday norwegian Turbonegro. He is an excelent performer with a great show, all dressed in white. Its at Pumpehuset, and surprisingly not sold out. Stadionrock with sing a long and too many people taking pictures during concert.
Sometimes I wonder what a big name is doing on a small stage in a small venue. That is the case with Talib Kweli. He is Political, cool, simple, and a much respected veteran in the hip hop business. Its in little Vega
But then in Big Vega you can find Av Av Av. Who are now moving into a bigger scene. Its electronic local DJ´s and they are throwing a big party. Lots of dancing in da club.
At Alicecph, Nørrebro they are ending the G((o))ng Tomorrow experimental festival with a three piece concert Astrid Sonne (DK) Ying- Hsueh Chen (Taiwan), and Cucina Povera (Fin) are performing with all sorts of instruments and visuals. Interesting…
Then Pumpehuset has something completly different when swedish rockers Graveyard are visiting. Its sold out, but try your luck with people who want to sell tickets at the original price.
Operaen in Christiania are again welcoming Brazilian La Banda: Its a big band and dance show with samba and alls sorts of related styles.
And they dress up like its a carnival, so you will have swinging skirts all over the place. DJ Quasiliero keeps the dancefloor Hot with Salsa, funk, Samba, Reggae, Hip Hop…
The dark sunday is back. And it is taking place at Pumpehuset. Where Kataklysm are performing. Its Heavy metal with a voice, fast and efficient. And they take no enemys. Supported by Hypocrisy swedish guitar rock: fast and nervy.
