While it gets darker and greyer…

We have reached the centre of November and we are still alive. Only 4 months to spring time. So what else to do, but go inside in the cold weather, and enjoy the fabulous night life in Copenhagen. The Christmas beers are in the shops (I am not talking about Tuborg) and soon we will be bathing in Gløgg with to many raisins, and will be eating Pebernødder until we puke. And then we know its X-mas. And The War will be over.

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.

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.
