The last week of the Winter Jazz Festival. But also the end of winter?
The Winter Jazz Festival is now being accompanied with The Journey Fest. Its from Wednesday 20th until Saturday 23rd and is taking place in different Venues: Pumpehuset, Den Grå Hal, Loppen and Store Vega. You can read more about it here. There are some pretty good Indie and Rock Concert on the program.
And Sunday night its Oscar Celebration. The event that nobody wants to host. Empire Bio in Nørrebro are making an all night event with Free coffee, to keep you from falling a sleep.
The last part of the Winter Jazz festival is taking place. Girls in Airports are playing. I saw them a couple of years back, and like them because I can hear some Brian Eno, King Grimson and Sun Ra. They have an emphasis on percussion and Horns. Hotel Cecil are providing the Runway.
Beat 21/02 is Electronic music for you, in the centre of the city at Matrikel 1 Højbro Plads 8-10. Jean von Baden, Mashti and Jack Rothe are performing with turntables and electronics. This is your weekly Thursday Fix.
For Cumbia Psychos and some nice Latin dance music head for Alice Cph.
“The music stretches between heavy Latin rhythms, surfy riffs, psychedelic sounds and melodies influenced by Balkan music.” And they have a Tuba!!! I Love Tubas 😀
Makina is the new Underground club of Ungeren. Its Grime and Jungle. This is where the new DJ´s are showing what they got before they are moving on. A lot of fantastic musicians have grown out of the Underground community here. Cash Only – No cards
Nina Simone is one of the greatest. In this Tribute Concert she is being celebrated as one of the Rebel heroes she was. The voice take over is by South African Maria Thandie. Its at Råhuset, Vesterbro.
I believe that Night church is a special Danish Phenomenon. Where the church opens in the evening for a live concert . This evening it is at Sct. Lukas Church in Frederiksberg where French inspired Electro Pop Tele Rouge are performing. It is a reunion, so you will here an old band performing a lot of new songs.
A real carnival at Alice Cph! You thought you knew everything about soul-funk sauce made in USA. Turn on your turntables again, because the Brazilians from the Black Rio Band are landing for a lesson of pictorial and explosive stuffs.
Stillborn is a Danish / Swedish Doom Metal band, that has recently been reunited, after they where popular in the 1980´s . It´s at high Voltage, and they are supported by Skærsilden, and DJ’s coming in. So it will be a good evening, with sweaty metal in your ears.
Party Rebels are a bunch of people making Rebel POP UP concerts in the streets. It´s pretty illegal, so now they need money for fines and confiscated stuff. The street Party is at Bumzen in Baldersgade – Nørrebro, with electronic Music DJ´s and the entry is donation. Bring warm Cloths and cash
Cheerful Grooves is a music collaboration that portraits a meeting of musicians from Brazil, Denmark, Mozambique and Norway, they bring their own compositions to the circle, where all get to express and interpret in their original flavour, background and influences finding their place in the music. Råhuset
In Forbrænding in Albertslund West of Copenhagen they have made a decision: In 2019, they will only have female artists. It has created quite an uproar. I Support the thing. We need to get more focus on female artist. The music scene has always been male dominated. We need to change that.
This Saturday Radiant Arcadia is taking over the Stage at Forbrændingen. Its women from all over the world. A mix of Cultures and religions getting together and singing. A brilliant band that I can strongly recommend. Note: Starts at 16.00
Every DJ would like to think themselves a real musical connoisseur, but Hunee really is. The Electronic DJ is at Culture Box, so put on your dancing shoes and get going.
For the nerdy Metal fans should head for Mayhem in Østerbro. 5 of the most gruesome Death Metal bands Denmark has to offer right now collectively making Saturday March 23rd an extremely rotten death metal night”
Loppen has visitors from Germany when Die Nerven and Levent are giving a concert. Its Post Punk and No wave, with references to Joy Division and Sonic Youth.
As you well know Sundays are for going to Church and for prayers. Well if you pray for some Hardcore Punk Music, then your Church will be at Ungdomshuset. Geld from Australia, Disguise (Eire) and Cesspool (Cph) are saving your Sunday soul.
Swedish Siena Root are coming to Lygtens Kro. It sounds like something taken from the 60´s Psychedelic scene. With an old Hammond Organ and they also have a old school tape recorder on stage. I will look forward to this concert. 🙂
Lost Under Heaven are from Manchester UK, and it´s both Rock and Post Punk, with a very characteristic voice. They are working on being the next big thing from UK, and I hope they will succeed. It has been a long time since we have had good news from Great Britain.
