The John Lennon / Yoko Ono christmas song is iconic. But war is not over, even if you want it. The war goes on all platforms, and you are in the center of it. The war for your time, the war for your money, the war for your freedom, The war for your _____________________ (please fill in).
So keep on fighting, to the be the one you want to be.
Bauhaus is an iconic band from the 1980´s with post punk scene. I never really considered them Goth, but they have received a lot of attention from the Goth community. Peter Murphy, the lead singer and composer, are performing the classic Bauhaus songs at Vega. I saw the same show about 5 years back, and its really good. And suits the depressing weather.
For those who are searching for a bit of heavy on a tuesday, the road will lead you to Amager Bio and Lucifer. They are from the forests of Sweden. Supported by Local Skinny Violet, who have left the garage,to play some rock.
The Blue Van at Hotel Cecil. Its really good positive pop rock, which you might need in these hard times.
Babylove & the Van Dangos are a local band: Jazzy, soul and Funk, at one of the many small Jazz bars in the center of town. Charlie Scotts have room for 150 people.
The Christiania Jazzclub and Børneteatret have many differet shows. Today theres a English spoken Hip Hop arrangement, with Jethro Alonestar Sheeran and the guy who is always everywhere: Al Agami. They call it Hip Hop, but i will bet my old cap, that it will be more like Rap with jazzy notes.
The oldest NYC Ska band are still going strong, and are on a worldtour. The Toasters are visiting Loppen, and I would be there, if it wasn´t for the julefrokost I am attending. Polish you Dr. Martens and get going.
Another really good way to spend your friday is at Pumpehuset. Career Suicide, The war goes on and Night Fever are some of the best Punk/Metal bands. This must be the best concert of the week. Its loud and fast.
For the Brazillian lovers, head for Operaen, Christinia, and Trypical Cumbia. Its a Big Band, who are performing, to make your feed move. You cant stand still. Theres a support band as well. It will be sold out, so come early, and bring cash, for the entrance and the bar.
This years Xmas show at Alicecph: The Kutimangoes are playing Hot Hot Hot Afrobeat. Enjoy and dance. They are the best Afrobeat act in town right now.
I first saw Danko Jones many years back in Stengade. Now he has made it big, with many tours, and last time he was at Roskilde Festival 2017. Pure Rock´n Roll at Pumpehuset
To warm up your heart in this cold weather go for Seven Inch Orange at Operaen. They are playing good old soul music, from the 1960´s and 70´s No doubt where the inspirations are coming from, and its really good, with a lot of horns.
Enter Shikari is a British fast Rock band, thou describe themselves as being Hardcore. But they are fast and are going over the hills like a rocket. Its also at Pumpehuset.
And the Chritsmas market in the Grey Hall, Christiania are still on for the coming week. There are local bands playing and its really hygge. When I think about Xmas Hygge – I think about the Grey Hall Julemarked.
Another christmas tradition is the Santa Lucia parade with kayaks in the harbour channels. Its on thursday december 13th and the kayaks are all lighted up. Its really beautifull. Sails of from the Kajak hotel at Kalvebod Bølge 4.30 PM.
Buy a Bloody Mary at the bar and go to the Christmasblood in Ungeren with Muay Thai. Its really exiting, and the audience goes wild. Best view is from the balcony. Doors open at 5 PM, and first match 6. Bring your cash.
