Stockholm club guide

Looking to go clubbing in Stockholm this weekend? Here are five weekend club and concert tips from Kalendarium (Click links for more information)

Catty DJs

Patti, our very favourite Patti, and her friend Kattis (that rhymes!) dj at the recently reopened Reisen Hotel. The city’s best drinks, a great location, and the coolest cats behind the turntables.

Messy mix

Chapel Hill Crew are old Kalendarium favourites. From now on they’re going to be at Spyan every Friday. The second coming, the second wave or just a fun party? We know you will be there!

Ida-techno

Ida, oh Ida. One of the country’s best DJs is coming to Esque. Top sounds, top music and oodles of dance. Deep house, tech house, funky techno, minimal and electro. Don’t miss it!

Feminist Party

Imagine if every day was like March 8th! Life would be a party. Celebrate International Women’s Day at Södra Teatern all day Saturday. Right after Gudryn Schyman’s vagina monologue, Klubb Slick opens its doors where you can experience a feminist utopia all night long.

Swinging old ladies

There was cool music about even during our grandmothers’ time. Cowabunga Club takes the opportunity to honour all the ladies, old dears, aunts and grandmothers in the world with music from the 40s onwards blasting out of the loudspeakers at Street.

Lenny Kravitz lets it rip on stage in Sweden

US artist Lenny Kravitz made headlines when he rocked his pants off at a rip-roaring gig in Stockholm last night – literally.

Kravitz performed to an audience of thousands of cheering fans at Stockholm's biggest theme park – Gröna Lund – on Monday night.

And the rock legend, who is not known for pulling any punches on stage, went all in to offer his Swedish audience the whole package. Yes, the whole package.

For as Kravitz crouched down in a laws-of-physics-defying way right at the start of the energetic performance, he managed to split his leather outfit at crotch level – leaving the artist with a gaping hole in his trousers.

And if there was one thing we did not know about the 51-year-old artist before that we know now – it is that he does not wear underwear. Let's just say the audience went nuts.

The Local is unable to publish picture proof of the revealing incident, but curious readers may click on the tweet below. Warning: contains nudity. Do not click if you are at work.

After leaving the stage for several minutes, the rocker reappeared in a new pair of trousers. And that's how you crack into the history books, folks.

“The producer stepped up and said that they had 'some problems on stage'. A bit later Kravitz came out wearing other trousers. He said 'sorry, I ripped my trousers',” a member of the audience, named only as Sara, told the Expressen tabloid after the show.

“It was insane, I killed myself laughing. And then I called my mum who was there at the show as well. Her reaction was the same and she almost killed herself laughing too,” she added.

Behind hits such as 'It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over', 'American Woman' and aptly titled 'Fly Away', Kravitz has sold almost 40 million albums worldwide and holds the record of most Grammy Awards in the category Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.

He commented on the incident in Stockholm late on Tuesday by tweeting a screen shot of a text message from fellow rock star Steven Tyler, of Aerosmith fame:

It is not the first time a world artist has a mishap on stage in Sweden this summer. But while Kravitz suffered only an awkward wardrobe malfunction, rocker Dave Grohl broke his leg in concert in Gothenburg in June.

The 46-year-old Foo Fighters frontman made headlines around Europe when he spectacularly returned after being briefly rushed to hospital to complete the show in a cast.
