One of the years best Metal Festivals are coming up in Pumpehuset: Kill Town death Fest #VII. It runs from Thursday to Sunday, but its sold out Friday and Saturday. At they write in the manifest: “Our focus will be mainly on the contemporary death metal bands of the international scenes …what we think is a selection of the best of the bands out there. … we try to also encompass …more established bands without focussing on headliners as such. We feel that the big bands of the older generations have enough exposure and there is no need for us to bring them in.”
Music is a lot of things, and at the other end of the spectra of rhythmic Music, you find the Copenhagen World Music festival. As the names says, its from all continetnts and in many different genres, so go and ahead and find your favorite musical part of the world, and enjoy the live performance. It’s the fabulous Kim Jezus who is the chairman, doing an incredible job with the whole crew.
And this weeks street Party is in Istedgade on Saturday. With circus for the Kids and cold Hipster beer for the adults.
Civic is coming to Loppen. The Aussies are a one of the best old School Punk Bands right now. They have the right sound and attitude. As warm up bands are Planet Y and Situationsfornærmelse. I like Planet Y and has seen them a couple of times. Situationsfornærmelse is a wonderful name for a band and in my ears they are sounding like Dansk Fløde.
Tuhaf is a Danish / Turkish ensemble Playing Funky Anatolian Acid rock, with singer Berrin Bas in the Front. Its a really cool band with a good vipe, that I have enjoyen many times. Its in Kulturstation Vanløse.

There is more heavy for your poor ears at Amager Bio, when Alkymist are performing with the very heavy sound of something that could remind of Rammstein. Supported by Bethmoora and Duing Hydra.
