Its the last week before Xmas, and everybody are busy, before going on the holiday. But from friday, things in the city are really slowing down (Exept in the shops). Now we are going home to the family, and more eating and drinking.
And then Copenhagen are almost empty and quiet. It feels good when things are moving slower, and the hectic everyday is far away. Christmas evening some places are open, so if you dont want this family thing, there are other options.
Culture Box, is the only place that are open almost every evening during Xmas. They have an extensive program signalling: ”We dont care about Xmas. We just keeps on partying.”
December 21st is the shortest day of the year. From now on there will be more light: It is celebrated in Operaen, Christiania with DJ´s and concerts. There are diffrent acts in different styles. Its really a mess in fact. Bring cash, for the entry and the bar.
In another location, but the same building in Pusher street, you can find T. S. Høeg AKA Great Dane with his Big Band. I dont know how they are getting room for a big band in this small place. But go there and remember cash. There is no link to this event
Also here Operaen and Culture Box are standing out with the only shows of the day. Its a brazillian Xmasparty with DJ´s in Operaen.Bring Cash 😉
And at Culture Box, they have WetYourSelfi (WYS) from London on a christmas visit. So dance the calories away. And free beer between 11 PM and midningt!! Whats not to like?
Monday December 24th .
The legendary Xmas evening in The Grey Hall –Christiania. Be there when the doors open at 6 PM, because it fills up fast. You will get free food, also for vegetarins and vegans, but else its traditionell danish pork. Later its performances with local bands. Its also fun to volunter, and do the work of cooking the food and decorating the hall. If you are interested in voluntering, its a good idea to be at the Hall friday December 21st around 10 AM, where theres a meeting. You can also turn up later, but then its harder to get into the groups. Everything is done Christiania style, and there are no place on the internet, where you can sign up, or find information.
Stengade, Nørrbro has a party evening with DJ´s opening at midnight at going on until 5 AM The entry is free.
There is Xmas and anti Xmas. And the last one is in Ungeren, who are celebrating the Christmas with having no Xmas, but an open bar, and propably some hardcore punk on the stereo.
And thats it for now. Hope you enjoy yourself. Im going for Aarhus to see the family there. But I will be back on the blog after Xmas.
