The tempo is going a bit down for Easter. Many Folks are leaving town for visits and Holidays. So there are not so many events here.
If you are a Bicycle Fanatic you should head out for the annual Bike Flea Market at Stefansgade. People are coming from all over Scandinavia to Buy , sell and Swap. Its Monday April 22nd outside the Hafnia Bike shop.
And if you are in for some more Action then Extinction Rebellion are arranging climate event all over town. And on Thursday people are going for closing the Ellebæk deportation Camp. So lots of things to do in the Easter.
Wednesday 17th The weekend starts on a Wednesday 😀
You can head out for Ungdomshuset on Dortheavej and Better of Dead, Chainsaw Eaters (Great name 🙂 ) Fall back Down and Nexø. Its all Punk bands, and what a good way to start your weekend. Cash only for the entrance and bar.
I didn’t expect this kind of music out of Colombia. Its weird and load of both electronic and analogue instruments. Chupame El Dedo was born for a Festival called “Evil Music” or “Böse musik”. The idea was to recreate a death metal group with influences of tropical music. Its at Alicecph.com
Elevatorfører is Danish Psych and Acid. They a making a release party at Loppen for they new album: “Jeg er kommet for at slå tiden ihjel” , and it can end up as a long evening with improvisations. Both exciting and slow moving with the Danish Lyrics.
Zydeco Music is coming from The French Caribien and New Orleans. So Zyde & Co are playing this world music toninght. They are accompanying Louise Bruel Band and are at Operaen in Christiania. Go for something you havn´t hear before.
Rufus Wainwright from Canada is one of the big vocalist of our time. This Friday he is at Koncertsalen in DR Byen, on his 20 years Jubilee Tour. This evening he is both doing new and old stuff, so its a memorable evening at The big concert Hall.
Klub Luk Røven at Råhuset are hosting a Punk evening with two bands: Big Mess + Ulceras Its fast loud and with no mercy.
Saturday 20th Today 420. This is a international weed smoking day and are celebrated around the world. In Copenhagen the attention goes to Christiania.
At Loppen the 420 day is celebrated with Dub in the form of Kenny Knots and DJ´s Unity, Freetown Soundsystem and 2000 F. Even though you cant Smoke inside, you can go downstairs and fill your lungs.
You can also take a walk down the Hazy street to Den Grå Hal and Operaen with General Levy (UK) as the headline name. Its Jungle and Dancehall Eaggerman , Dj Hydepark, Raske Penge, PHASE5, KAKA DK, Melissa Inya, Mashti Project, The Four Twenty Kolektiv are also joining the party. I wonder if there is room for all these people. The late night party is continuing at Operaen and Christiania Jazz Club. Remember cash and clean lungs. 😉
If you are not that found of getting stoned but still like Rock then the 1980´s stars Sandmen is at Vega. The voice of Alan Vegenfeldt is still full and Strong, and you are in for an evening down memory Lane
Summer in the city Festival are hosting this event in Råhuset. Two bands: Bæst and Mørk Meditation are finding ways to get even darker in their minds and their Music.

At Stengade – in the last minut – They have announced this free event with Post Punk – Noise Rock. Mavourneen and Michael Ellis are performing. Its loud and controlled. And the Entrance is free.
Sunday 21st Remember that Monday is still a Holiday 🙂
Slow moving film music with inspiration from Tom Waits and Johnny Cash and you get to Jaye Jayle. Imagine yourself in a David Lynch Movie and here you are at Loppen. Its dark and slow evolving, but makes you a little bit uneasy. Loppen is the venue.
If you are missing some weird Improvisation then go for Fire! From Sweden with Local support from Lunden. You can expect nothing really, because nobody knows how this is going to turn out. And with no expectations you are not getting disappointed. But Maybe not surprised. Anyway: Its at Alicecph.com
At Lygtens Kro they are not stopping after Easter. Vojd from Sweden are members from Black Trip, and in the best Swedish Style its Hard rock with a nice blend of metal. Their latest release ”the outer ocean” is an album stuffed with powerful rock hits that ventures throughout a distorted dreamland.
The Picturebooks is good old Dirty Blues Rock n´Roll. They work like a Duo (Guitar and Drums) . A strong voice and simple tunes you are guaranteed an inspiring evening in amagerbio.dk
