Its hard to be a blog writer in January. I really have to dig deep, to find some good places to hang out. People are indoor, and at home, saving on the money, they have overused in December. But here are a few tips to get you through.
If you are into gaming there is a couple of events. In Bip Bip Bar – Fælledvej, Nørrebro this Thursday is free for all the good old Arcade games.
And at Raahuset, Halmtorvet, Vesterbro there a Thursday to Sunday gaming event. They are not very good at descriping it, but its someting with gaming, Coffee and Beer.
The first really good concert of the year: Architects have grown and grown, and the 2018 album is celebrated as one of the best albums of 2018. So here they are at Vega, performing high energy metal with two support bands. Prepare for Moshpit and Circle pit.
One of the richest voices I know of. Maria Carmen Koppel are singing gospel and jazz and are performing at Drop Inn, the old bar in the centre of town.
“New Orleans New Year Jazz Event” is the short name for what happens in Pumpehuset in this weekend. Not only New Orleans, but also swing jazz, and of course Al Agami drops buy. Its two days and Saturday a Aretha Franklin Tribute is taking over the stage.
Culture Box also has a full weekend event, celebrating 14 years of high quality Techno. The program for Friday is headlined by Move D, with three other performers. Saturday is headlined by Tim Andresen and Chez Damier.
Lygtens Kro are having visitors from the deep forests of Sweden, The Wedding Crashers are a funny band, making cover versions of the big Rock classics. Perfect warm up for the Karaoke night.
Judith Hill is a star. She has been singing with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Robbie Williams, to name a few. And here she are on her own at Koncerthuset Studio two. Its sold out, but you can join the waiting list. could be the concert of the week.
The Incredible Spacecowboys are a band full of joy, funk, hippieness, and the right place for them to be is at Operaen Christiana. And off course the
DJ´s keep the party going into the long cold January night.
In Pumpehuset the New Orleans Jazz event continues. And also the second day of the Culture Box birthday party goes on.
When I first heard them, I was blown away ! ! ! Algiers is a very very very cool band on a Tuesday at Hotel Cecil. A bit of soul, but also with a distorted guitar, and a fantastic voice. And they are feeling obliged to fight the tide of fascism and intolerance, that are sweeping over the western world right now. Deadspan, who are supporting is post punk The Cure like.
