For some ethnic Hip Hop with world rhythms head for Alice. From Ecuador comes Kingman, who has been living most of his life in the Amazonas Jungle. If you want to move your feet and your hips, this is where you should go.

This week Loppen are apparently only taking non European Indie bands in. This Saturday it is Australia, who are delivering. The Stroppies are from Melbourne, and are on there first tour, after releasing there first album. So they are a new hope for the future. Holm are a local support band.

Wednesday 18th

Most people – and Clubs – move the birthday to the next weekend. But not in Stengade. Its Wednesday the 18th so why not celebrate with a couple of Australian rock bands. Anyway here are DZ Deathrays and Press Club, all the way from Down Under. Listening to the two hard rock Bands, I think Press club is the best.

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.
