I don´t know where it is ending yet, so have your ears out. There will be Street Partys in the night, and Ground 69 could be a good spot to make a night party.
Swedish Siena Rot are coming to Lygtens Kro. It sounds like something taken from the 60´s psychedelic scene. With an old Hammond Organ and they also have a old school tape recorder on stage.
Lost Under Heaven are from Manchester UK, and it´s both Rock and Post Punk, with a very characteristic voice. They are working on being the next big thing from UK, and I hope they will succeed. It has been a long time since we have had good news from Great Britain.
Its not often that we have real old school Country in Copenhagen. But here they are: The Mavericks at DR Koncerthuset. They are from the US South States and, also have som mariachi hornes. And I think there Logo with the Skull is pretty Cool.
Hip Hop på Børneren, is at Christiania Jazzclub in Pusher Street. Its the very new kids, that are trying out there appearance, for the first time on a stage. And it´s funny and Life Joy, to see it.

Klub Luk Røven are a new Club, taking place at Råhuset, Vesterbro. They start of with The Preachers and 0%. So its Garage Rock in your ear right now. Sounds good in my ears.
Bodega is not a name, that give me an idea of Talking Heads and B 52´s like Post Punk. But The US band is actually a good inspiring band, and plays quite simple music. They are at Stengade in Nørrebro.
I don´t know what to think about Iceage. I think they have made some really good Records, very inspired by 1980´s sound of Gun Club. But the only time I saw them live was at Roskilde Arena stage, and The stage was to big, and it became to much teenage emo like. But They are at Vega this evening, and it is not sold out.
Loppen has two days of Doom Metal Festival on the Programme with Nocturnefest. 3 bands at night – Bang your Head to Saturnus, Solstice, Hadron and more. Saturday Night sounds best.

But its only a Rumour, so you have to drop by, to see if they are actually playing.
Forbrændingen is going on with there Front Women only Policy. This Saturday it´s with Nikoline. Who is, the most interesting, aggressive, provocative women on the Danish Rap Scene Right Now. I think she is a Heroine.
