In Denmark its more like you are feeling Grey. After the weather and the lack of sunshine. Its when your lover has left you, the cat pissed in your bed, its raining and your bike has a puncture. So thats whats its like to have a “Grey feeling”.
So here are the best things to do in Copenhagen this grey week in November.
In Loppen they have visitors from the other side of the Globe. Orchestra of Spheres (NZ) are here and are on the stage with aprupte rhythms and a bit experimental. I am thinking of Brian Eno. Supported by Local Red Lama playing Psych Kraut Rock.
I saw them at this years Roskilde Festival (I think ;-)) Pumpehuset are welcoming Skeleton Witch from Ohio, US with there Trash – black – dead metal. Supported by Mantar from somewhere in Germany.
In Amagerbio you can meet Dan Baird and the Homemade Sin Former Georgia Satellites guitar hero, so its south state rock, n´roll. By mistake I posted this in last weeks letter, but shit happens. So here we go again. 😉
Christiania Jazzclub Has the very prominent official adress: 1 Pusher Street. LSD: Lindborg/Sjöstedt/Daniel are doing some jazz on this boring wendesday. So smoke some dope and forget about thursday. Cash Only
The only thing I can find on this thursday is at Loppen. They are having visitors from Canadian West Coast with Crack Cloud, who are a collective performing Vancouver experimental avantgarde post punk. Support is himmelrum with more minimalistic experimental sounds.
The Lake is a online radio Station, and they describe themselves as a place for music and sounds. There is a support party at Alicecph in Nørrebro.
Just around a couple of corners in Nørrbro you can find Stengade, with Swedish Agent Side Grinder performing. Its Electronic industrial and the legacy goes back to Kraftwerk. Afterparty with Dj´s .
In Ungeren, Nordvest. Its two Black Metal bands from the US with very gifted musicians: Yellow Eyes and Anicon playing very melodic going into Stoner. Remember ear Plugs!!! Cash Only!!!
In Vega, Vesterbro. Lydmor, just came back with a new album after spending some time in China. Electronic well sounding pop. You can sign up at the Waiting List
Aysha Loren from UK are welcomed at Operaen Christiania. Its Reggae and R´n´B. She singes beautifully with her dancing music. It makes you feel good. Come in good time as it can be sold out fast, and there are only tickets at the door. Cash Only.
We only have a few Ska bands in Copenhagen. At Cafe Bartof, Frederiksberg you can experince the very first: Napoleon Solo are still very ambitious and this is a release concert. So find your suit, your sunglasses and your hat.
No wedding without dancing!!!
If you want a trip into modern turkish psych wedding and party music, then head for Alicecph, where you will find Cüneyt Sepetci playing on his horn.
A indoor Distortion party with only Afrobeat, is what you need in November. Live acts and DJ´s is in Pumpehuset, so a lot of dancing and sweaty people.
Theres more West African music in Operaen, Christiania. Mofro Danish / Ghanian Afro Beat and Highlife It will get you warm and dry in the cold and rainy winter.
In Vega, Vesterbro Danish Oh Land is on the poster with poppy tunes, celebrating her debut ten years ago. And she is getting better and better with the time.
The Blues is in the Grey Hall, Christiania when good old Walter Trout with Chicago blues rock. Arranged by Amagerbio, but they are rebuilding the concert hall so its in the Grey Hall.
Underwerket in Valby has 20 below with chewing cum punk rock with a clear guitar Supported by 3 local bands doing skater punk.
What to do on a rainy Sunday? Well you can go for some of the locals at Cph listening Room on Halmtorvet, Vesterbro Its a Weekly singer song Writer venue. Everything is run by volunteers, and it should be real hygge. So drop inn by on a sunday. 🙂
Another place for jamming on a Sunday is Operaen Christiania, where there is also a open stage.
Tremonti from Greed is here with his solo project. Its guitar and the voice sounds a bit like local metal band Volbeat. Tremonti has a new Concept album about the Robots taking over. Its in Vega.
What else to do besides listening to music?
Cocktails and Science in Byens Lys Christiania are presenting another Neerdy theme: this time its about new materials. What does the future look like, and what can it offer? What can we do with all this new material stuff – and do we really need it? Its free, but the bar acceptes Cash Only!!! Thursday November 15th,
You can join the party with the local Roller Derby Stars. Its a double header meaning two games on Saturday afternoon in DGI Byen against Teams from Bryssels, Belgium and Sweden. It will be super exciting to cheer on the girls.
