Its raining for 40 days and 40 nights

Another week have gone by, and we are still in the warmest winter ever recorded.But its raining and that’s a good excuse to go indoor and amuse yourself.

Fastelavn
When you see a kid in your neighbourhood running around and looking like some princess, or Superhero or something else then its because its fastelavn. Danish Carnival, but without the samba. There is also a competition about Beating the cat out of the barrel. In the good old days it was a real cat (Black like the devil), but these days we are Barbaric in other ways, so we fill it with candy. On Sunday there are loads of Fastelavn party’s all over. The normal one at Ungdomshuset is somehow cancelled

Sports
Go to Bodyslam in Pumpehuset and see some real fighting. I was there once, and its amazingly hilariously entertaining.

48 Years. Happy Birthday Christiania. And a long middle Finger to the Money addicted violent pusher types in the Street

Another week is coming up. The weather have gone into Autumn mode, and I am finding my hand gloves, the warm rain jacket and the winter boots.
Dress up well on Friday when we (You, Me and everybody else) are turning up for the biggest Climate demonstrations by Grown ups. While Greta Thunberg is speaking Thunder in UN, we are not sitting and waiting for things to happen. So meet up at Ofelia Square, by the harbour.

Sports

Live music

Wednesday 25th
At Hotel Cecil they have a visit from US/ Greek Simrit. Its a well sounding mix of Folk, and West African (Salif Keita) rhythms, with a spiritual essence to it. In fact, its not bad to listen to. So this is my Wednesday recommendation.

I don’t like Royal Arena. Its too big, you have to sit down, and the Distance to the stage is enormous. So I am not going to Alice Cooper, but you can still get tickets if you want to see the legend.

Thursday 26th
Congratulations to the good people of Christiania: 48 years today. And a long Fuck off finger to the violent, money addicted dope dealers, who are ruining there own and others life’s. Find somewhere else to do your business. Legalize Cannabis. Its on time.
A lot of the live music venues, cafes and bars are having events. Check out Loppen
Operaen,
Woodstock
Nemoland
Månefiskeren
And there are more party’s, that are not announced anywhere. You can even make your own little party in you mind. 😀

In Lille Vega, they have a visit from the North Carolina band – Between me and the Buried. It sounds like something in between 1970´s Kraut Rock and progressive metal. Check them out, they are something special. Super fine musicians, that have been touring with Lamb of God, Mastodon.

For some Catchy indie Pop, head for Ideal Bar at Vega. From Germany its Leoniden, who are performing with a cool energy. They are big stars down south of the Border, and I bet the bar will be filled with German fans.

Friday 27th
In Ungeren, they have a Post Punk outline – Amanda X from Pennsylvania – USA. Local Enids are supporting with more Post Punk.

Mxrphy is a new rapper on the Copenhagen Scene. Just made a new album – Hafnia – . He is the new hope, and are performing the hold album on Loppen. Maybe its now, you should see him, before he hits the rest of the country. You never know…

Maybe they still have a hangover from the party, the day before, but at Operaen, they just smoke a joint, and feeeeel okay, and are presenting a new party with Brazilian Rhythms from Trypical Cumbria. So Polish up you dance shoes and find your best clothes

Thurston Moore is one of the most influencing musicians in Noise rock. Since The Sonic Youth Days he has been an inspiration for countless bands.

Saturday 28th
For new Copenhagen Electro Pop, head for Shy Shy Shy at Loppen. Professional sound, but can they also do it on stage? They have a hit for the score to the Danish DR Doggystyle TV series.

At Alice there is a support party for the Folkradio FM radio station. So a lot of local Folk bands are coming, and you can expect screaming fiddles in your ear. Bring my mind back to the folk party’s in Ungdomshuset in the 1980´s.

For this Monday I advise you to go to Pumpehuset and listen to French Nouvelle Vague. They are making Jazzy / Bossa Nova covers of old Classics like “To Drunk to Fuck”, “Love will tear us apart”, and “Have you ever been in love” by The Buzzocks. It sounds like a funny evening.

Shokran is the Arab word for thank you, but also the name of a Russian Prog metal band. For the first time they are here in Denmark, and are performing at Underwerket. They are supported by three Bands: Wings Denied from Washington DC, Hanging The Nihilist (DK) and Exelerate (DK)

Tuesday October 1st
There is a Egyptian Movie festival at Cinemateket. Therefore the Cairo based band Lekhfa are playing at Alice. The members are coming from the Alternative Arab scene, and its a blend of traditional Arabic Folk and bit of psych.

David Bowie, Bono, Thom Yorke, The Strokes and Pavement has all named Pixies as a favourite band, and Kurt Cobain, said that this is here he got the inspiration to Loud-Quiet-Loud build up.

Christiania Birthday Party and PIX

It is the end of the month, and money is running out. And there are no more free outdoor events left. So here are a few tips.

Art
There are two exibitions you can go and see: At Politikens Hus, you can see ”World Press Photo” with pictures of the best news photos from the past year. Be prepared for some heavy shit. Some of them are not very nice.

At Charlottenborg – The Art School – in Nyhavn You can right now find the BigArt thing with danish architecture company Bjarke Ingels Group. They have been cooperating with different artist, such as Ai Weiwei and Lars Von Trier.

Movies and Films
Another big thing in Copenhagen right now is the Copenhagen Film Festival Pix, starting on Thursday September 27th and for the nex two weeks. A lot of premiers and new films, in cinemas all over Town. Also there are a festival for Kids ”Buster”, and there are all sorts of different subjects, such as Film with and about musicians. And there is workshops for kids and adults and much more…

One of the films is 2001: A Space Odessey by Stanley Kubrick in an Imax version. Sounds like a fantastic experience.

Sports
The Copenhagen Roller Derby Team are having visitors from Jutland on saturday afternoon. It is a fast going contact sport, with women in tattoos and stockings. Very entertaining and starts at 2 PM at DGI byen. FB event

Christiania 47th birthday
The only place to be at Wendesday September 26th is at Christiania. 47 years after the hippies turned over the fence, a lot has changed at Christiania. But there are free concerts at Månefiskeren, Woodstock, Nemoland and Loppen along with other places. It is a great party!!!
I say congratulasions to all the good people of Christiania – and fuck all the violent, money addicted, drug dealers, standing and selling there shit dope.

Live Music

Tuesday 25th at Mojo – the Blues Bar at the center there is this little concert, that I think will be very good. The new thing about Mojo is that they have dropped the indoor smoking, which I think is nice. So you are not leaving the bar with stinking Nicotine clothes. Elias Bendix is playing Jazz / soul.

For a great Metal party head to Lygtens Kro on Friday 28th with metal DJ´s paying. It is free, and the Beer is not to expensive.

Another cheap place, at the end of the month is Ungdomshuset, it is coming to an end of the 10 years birthday month. And on friday it is with a electronic music party, with some of the best underground DJ in the city.

Also at KB 18 in the meat packing District there is electronic DJ´s performing at a not to expensive price.

Saturday you can head for Christianshavn Bådudlejning, which is a restaurant and bar in the Canal. There is Dale Smith Blues Band playing, for the end of summer party. Normally a lot of boats comes and join the party, so the canal is filled up with boats, and all sorts of nice people. A really good party.

Free concert Is also possible at Mærkbar, Vesterbrogade. When ”The Elephant Suit” is entering the room. It is a very small, and there is no stage as such. But always a cosy atmophere. Its at Saturday.

At the other end of town, head for Operaen in Christiania for some Brazilian dancing with funk and samba. It is normally cheap to get in, and the drinking is cheaper than most other places.

But the week is not over until sunday: At Islands Brygge Beboerhus you can hear the amazing Pierre Dørge and the New Jungle Orchestra, Playing there super fantastic music. Prepare to be dancing, until your feet hurts.

Do you Remember? The 21st night of September?

Earth, Wind & Fire. Still cool 😀

Here we go for another splendid week in the city. Strugling to keep up the summer spirit, while the winter is creeping in on us.

Walk and listen

Metropolis is presenting another event when you can be part of a Audio walk, that will take you around Copenhagen. You will be presented with different sight specific stories and atmopheres on the tour. It takes two hours. Sounds very new and interesting.

I cant find any good partys for tuesday and Wendesday, so we jump straigt to Thursday:

Thursday is cool rock
Skambankt is a Norweigian band playing good old Rock´n roll. The meaning is ”Beaten to Pulp”, and they are playing at Hotel Cecil in the center of town near Strøget.

And another good Rock band is performing at Stengade, when Demon Head are entering the stage, and is taking over the room, with there guitar / Psych / Stoner Rock. Sings in Danish which is kind of cool. September 20th

If you are more of the etnich kind, then head for Alice and the Moroccan / Basque band Gabacho Maroc – September 20th . Playing music inspired by the Berbian Gnawa music, it is a long night with trance like music, that makes you dance for hours.

I havn´t really found any good music on Friday, but why not go skating with Friday night skaters. I think it is the last one for the season. A sure sign of the coming winter.

Christiania Punks and reggae legends
Saturday you can join me when the old Punks of Copenhagen meet together for the annual ”We are almost still alive” event. The grey hairs – If there are any hair left – is dominating when local legends are playing at the last dance. It is at Rockmaskinen Christiania. You wil find me at the bar.

Also at Christiania you can meet other and bigger legends when Toots and the Maytals are performing at The Grey Hall. They are from the Bob Marley time and are of course from Jamaica. The chance of a lifetime!!! September 22nd Afterparty at Loppen
