This week it is autumn holiday for all schools, so that means that there is no bedtime curfew, and the kids can party all night. (Like my daughter 😉 ) .
And since we have the hottest mid October ever recorded, there are even space for outdoor events. “Normally” it would be 5 degress celcius and raining right now. So you better feel lucky. 😀
A good place to hang out in good weather is always at Dronning Louises Bridge in the afternoon, on the way to Nørrebro. Often a party pops up out of nowhere. Dont look for the party – let the party find you. Also Christiania is a good place to pick up a late summer party.
While writing this I am at Bornholm visiting friends, and enjoying the good weather.
I can see two really good places to go for tuesday. At Hotel Cecil, near Strøget, You can go for Hot Snakes and Deaf Wish, with the no nonsense raw rock´n roll, Full of energy and a lot of power.
Also on tuesday head for Loppen , Christiania, and Godfathers that have reemerged from the 80´s . I remember them playing a bid poppy guitar new wave.
And now they are here again, if you need a little going back to the good times 😉
Bambara sounds like an African band name, but they are the opposite, and are performing some of the darkest rock you can imagine with inspiration from Nick Cave and Birthday Party and Swans. Post punk guitar noise, there must also be some Sonic Youth inspiration. It is Thursday October 18 on Loppen.
One of the best bands right now in Copenhagen is Baby in Wain with there very modern drums and two guitars Rock. Just coming home from a europeen tour they are performing there new album at Hotel Cecil. Best concert of the week in my humble opinon.
And then you can continue to the Kayak Bar, where they are having new good beer at the bar and DJ´ing is ”kvinder der kender din krop” (Women that knows your body). Sounds like a good evening.
For some latin Salsa dancing, the best place to go is AliceCPH where Frente Cumbiero from Colombia are visitors, and are sure to make your hips and feet move in a sexual dance.
And now for something completely different as they say in Monty Python. In Ungdomshuset there an allday support party for good old paper zines, I cant see that there are bands playing but you will meet a lot of new friends. But go on to Bumzen In Baldersgade where they are having yet another party. This time its with a Halloween theme, so bring your orange clothing and a pumpkin. And try to look scary.
Danish Championships in Free Style Rap is taking place in Pumpehuset. Of course you need some knowledge of the danish language to get something out of it, but there are a lot of beats and blows. Its on saturday and with DJ KCL after the event.
