Copenhagen is coming more alive in the autumn.

Back in 2008, after 1½ years of constant demonstrations, Ungdomshuset opened up again in September. And that is to be celebrated, so this weekend it starts with a Galla dinner on Thursday, and Friday and Saturday there are concerts both at Dødsmaskinen and in Salen. The program is both Hip Hop, Punk and Drum n Bass. Cheap and warm Beers for cash only.

Who doesn´t like a good movie? In Cinemateket they have a Music film festival, with films like Woodstock (50 years), Elvis, Fela Kuti, PJ Harvey, Miles Davis an many more.

Feeling Happy? Well then you can join the Festival of Endless Gratitude, with loads of new and a bit older bands. The location is AFUK´s halls at Enghavevej, Vesterbro. The line up is really good, with experimental and Psychedelic in the centre.

Also at Islands Brygge Kulturhus, they have a Festival. Geyser is “Two nights packed with live music from the indie folk-underground. The festival springs from the monthly singer/songwriter showcase Klub Geyser which aims at presenting upcoming as well as established artists.”

For some happy danceable Pop Rock Loppen is the place. Tacocats from Seattle are here, with something that reminds me of good old Junior Senior. Supported by Twen also from the US. Very Indie like.

Electronics of the 1970´s with self-built instruments, and inspiration from Kraftwerk and tangerine dreams. At Alice you are finding Apparat Organ Quartet from Iceland. It moves into danceable rhythms , And sounds good. Supported by Triple x SNAXXX, who are doing more of the same stuff.

Stengade has a visit from Norwegian Death Metal band Blood Red Throne. They are still going strong after 21 years as a band, so this is your change to do some head banging. Another Dead metal band are supporting. Skanderborg are sending wayward Dawn.

Red Warszawa are performing at Amagerbio, with another of their Crazy Shows. Its really entertaining, so why don´t go? Supported by Vrävarna and Demolizer.

Fastpoholmen is a Danish / Swedish Folk-Reggae-World band. They are really putting up some sweatier concerts, and I like them in a smaller venue than Store Vega. But maybe they have just grown to big for the smaller clubs. Check them out. They are getting better and better.

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.

Halshug is one of the best new metal bands. Since Debut in 2012 they have become more mature , and have slowed down a bit, but are playing just as loud. On the tour they have come to Stengade , and are supported by Deformation, who are more like Hard Core Punk.

Hello Sister ! Hej Søster is a Concert in Vega, taking initiative for bringing more women into Music. Falullah has invited Marie Key, Soleima, Nelson Can among other for this one day festival in Vega. And they are right! WE NEED MORE WOMEN IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS.

Tuesday 17th

Mystery Lights are said to be one of the best Garage rock bands right now. Listening to them, I have difficulties in hearing the garage part of it, but it sounds interesting like Kinks and a bit of psych. Good guitar work and old School organs. Supported by DYGL, which is Japanese, and more of the same kind. It might be an interesting Tuesday evening at Loppen.

Samba from Hell? Satanique Samba Trio, are at Alice, and are performing Alternative, Experimental Free Jazz samba for your poor ears. And its a 5 piece trio from Brazil. But the name stuck.

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. For 9.99 kr in the entry, this must be the best value for the money of this week.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STENGADE !!!

Indoor Hygge season is starting. With Punk, Death Metal and World Music

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.
