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.
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
Go to Bodyslam in Pumpehuset and see some real fighting. I was there once, and its amazingly hilariously entertaining.
Aggressive Feminist Punk at Loppen with Petrol Girls.
