Valentines is coming in this week. And I dont care.
It seems like we are finally getting some sunlight. So its time to get out from your cave, and flash your Potato White Skin. And it is even Valentins Day on Thursday. So the prices of flowers and chocolate boxes have risen, and the restaurants are sold out for romantic diners, trying to repair the failures and mistakes from the past year. But why not go to the Circus? Circus Panik are hosting a winter program, so go and have some fun with them. They are both funny and good at what they are doing.
And the winter Jazz festival is still here.
Veronica Torres from Pill (US) has a really remarkably soft and harsh voice, giving the Post Punk Indie band some etch. Its at Loppen and what else to do on a Tuesday.
For some pure Rock n´Roll you shouldn´t miss out on Death Valley Girls From somewhere in the US. They work more like a collective, so the set up with band members are fluctuating. And a local support band: Before Fire
The concert is moved from Loppen to Underwerket in Valby. Remember Ear Plugs 🙂
It´s sold out for Billie Eilish at Vega. She is very young, and destined to be the next big pop star. So its the last change to see her at a small venue like Vega. You can join the waiting list. My 19 year old daughter is going. 😉
In Jazz there are very few band names. Its all named after musicians and I think it´s quite boring, because I really love those weird names. 😀
But if your a Funky person, then go for Studenterhuset, where they have a Funk / Jazz evening in the name of the Winter Jazz Festival. Höfner Funk + De Waal/Ljunggren are performing
I couldn´t figure out why there are so many events on this Thursday. But Then it struck me: Its fucking valentines day! And if you don´t do something for your Girlfriend you are an unromantic bunch of shit. (And that´s me. I just see it as a Social Construction).
Baal is a pretty cool local band from the 1980´s . It´s Indie Pop rock, and mainly for old fans. Amagerbio are the host.
Dilli Dalli Are from Toronto, Canada, and are an indie rock power band with a singer that has a really characteristic voice. It sounds good. They are supported by a Danish Duo, Mavourneen, who are In Sonic Youth Footsteps. Its a cheap good concert at Loppen.
Hotel Cecil has a visit from the Texas: Micah P Hinson is a singer who can be measured with Eels and Iron and Wine. Soft simple Americana. Sounds like its worth listening to.
For some Dub Reggae, Soundsystem head for Bolsjefabrikken at outer Østerbro Where Jah Moby is taking it easy and turning the tables. Remember your own smoke and cash. No Cards.
A Colossal Weekend is two days of alternative, gloomy and progressive music within the genres of post rock, post metal, math, ambient,doom and everything in between. It takes place at VEGA and Stengade you can also explore talks, exhibitions, arts and vinyl market.
BUILT TO SPILL (US) CELESTE (FR) MAPS & ATLASES (US) ASTROSAUR (NO)
Folkets Haus is the electronic club of Folkets Hus in Stengade. But they are making the 4 years anniversary in Ungdomshuset. So there is a lot of House (Tech House – Slow House – Deep House). Remember Cash
For Soundsystem lovers head for Pumpehuset, where the DJ´s will be filling the floors with good cool dancing.
In Råhuset, at Halmtorvet , they have a new club for Electronic Music: Raw Grooves. Opening up with House and Techno DJ´s : Skeletonman, Orbitson and Frenchreflex. Cheap place with good beer near the centre.
Culture Box are inviting you to Shadow Boxing for an electronic dance night. This is Shadow Boxing, a collaboration between Drum & Bass Klubben, OHOI!and Circle Vision, made to explore and celebrate the genres of drum and bass and dub step.
I havn´t been to Bobushka in Linnesgade for many years. But when Orgelheimers are giving a concert, it might be a good reason to drop by. Because Orgelheimers is the ultimate Keyboard Band with old Wurlitzers, Farfisa and Hammond keyboards.
This Saturday you can head for DoktorDoktor in Blågårds Apotek where they are performing Crazy Hip Hop with Soul Inspiration. A splendid band you shouldn´t miss. No pre sale so come in god time.
Feridah Rose is an Afro Soul singer, bringing the warm Rhythms from East Africa to your ears. And she is helped by a pretty nice band. So you can get your hips moving in Bartof Station in Frederiksberg.
In Underwerket Club Totem are hosting a Three band Concert with new upcoming bands. Janis, Mimic Octopus and Enids are not ringing any bells in my ears, but they might be in the future. Remember cash for the entrance and Earplugs.
Sorte Rene is one of the cheapest and worst bars in Copenhagen. But sometimes they are having some good punk bands in there small space. So this evening it is careless Drinkers and Ass Bastard, that are taking over the “stage”. Its for free.
“Trypical Cumbia is the expression of the mix of cultures. Expect a unpolished groove that collects whatever has been found in the travel from the deep Amazon forest, up to the Andean mountains, down to the Caribbean coast and crossing the Atlantic. Of Course at Operaen.
If you miss old Big bands, like Count Basie and Duke Ellington Bands there is help for you. The Very Big Band have some of the best musicians , who has also performed with DR´s Big Band. So dress up for an evening at Bartof Station.
On this Monday you can go to Hotel Cecil Where the stage is being taken over by metal: Shining (Norway), Four Stroke Barons (US) and Dreamarcher (Norway). Shining is the main name, and they describe it as “BlackJazz”. I didn´t know it was a genre. But there you go.
