Sometimes you have to look deep and realise. Like right now for me . I just dont have time to do the blog. At least not in this week, and not the following. And maybe not before August. I am just to busy living my life. So the next couple of months the updates will be shorter and more sporadic. I am not promising anything, but will just give you the most important news, that I can find. It could be the new way of doing things…
But instead of the busy life lets celebrate, that it´s a normal Danish Summer, with rain and sunshine, and wind in the hair. It feels almost like normal.
But anyway all the live Music venues are closing down, leaving the scene to the big and small festivals, that you can find. I have not been able to find a guide to all the festivals, so if you know of one, then give me a hint.
K – Town Hardcore festival is the most interesting Punk Metal event of the year, taking place at Ungdomshust. D61. Punks from all over will gather together and have a party, ending on Sunday with Bike Wars and more Punk in Ungdomshuset. The 3-day Tickets are sold out, but if you come early there is still one day tickets for sale. Cash Only
In Loppen, they have Frigjort Festival on Saturday and Sunday. Its mostly Bands from the Kolding area that are perfoming. So its upcoming young bands, that are getting there chance in a lifetime.
In Alicecph.com, they are arranging an Organ festival: It takes place in Concert Kirken in Blaagaards Plads, with the old Church organ here.
Gorilla Angreb are at Underwerket. The Melodic, but still Dirty Punk band is one of the best in Copenhagen, and its sold out, so you have to be lucky to find a ticket. Its a warm up for K-Town festival.
For some Saharan Desert Blues head for Loppen and Mdou Moctar. You can feel the dryness in your nostrils, while listening to the simple accords, and basic journey into the Saharan desert landscape. Its from Niger he is bringing you the sound of the guitar in the wind.
At matrikel 1 on Højbro Plads, the celebration is for the B-day of Beat Box. With DJ Mashti and Friends playing Techno, this is the night, that will end with you dancing into the rising sun, and the empty streets of Copenhagen.
For you African music lovers, there is also some good news. In Operaen you can find International Rap Duo and Creative Directors M3NSA & Wanlov the Kubolor aka FOKN Bois are back with a new project and this time they are laughing at themselves for a change. bring cash
Steven Malkmus from legendary Indie Rockers Pavement, is in town with his new band The Jicks. Its in Lille Vega, and could be a very good intense concert.
In Christiania Jazzklub they have a visit from Derti Band. Its smoke filed Jazz in a tight atmosphere, with a tight Band. In Jazzklubben, they are not very good at announcing there gigs, but here is the chance. Cash only.
Hotel Hunger is back from the 1990´s playing at Amager Bio. Only for dedicated fans.
As Usual the third day of K-Town is celebrated with Bike Wars at Blaagårds plads. Bike Wars is building insane bikes out of scrap metal, and ramming them into each other. It’s like robot wars. But with bikes. And real people. And punks. And bands Playing loud and disturbing Music. Its great fun.
The Dwarves is Garage, Grunge and Punk. Its at Underwerket and they are supported by two bands. The Dahmers from Sweden, and Kill the Rooster, that are very Local
