Don't miss the chance to see one of Gothenburg's finest musicians - Jaqee, jamming together with the Gothenburg symphony orchestra. Expect an amazing evening of soul, folk, jazz and reggae mixed with the classical tunes of the orchestra.
Another orchestra, the Norwegian kings of alternative rock, is playing on Friday - Kaizers Orchestra. They will hit the stage at Trägår'n together with the Canadian Singer/songwriter Geoff Berner. Kaizers Orchestra has become very popular with Swedish crowds, so show up early if you don't want to use your elbows to get a good view.
The best soul party in town. Twirl and spin those hips of yours to Modern, northern and crossover soul. This is where you can definitely spot the best dancers in town. Kids with 60s haircuts and tight jeans, who've parked their Vespas outside, dancing like crazy on chalked floors. Tonight Dj Tommy from Oslo.
Artsy party for lovers of electronic music. Atlantis is held at the old boiler house by Röda sten. The music is described as neo-acid, electro, data-punk and techno. You may also catch glimpses of some live performance art. Röda sten is probably the best party location in town. Urban, rough and charming.
The Boston-based Irish punk band Dropkick Murphys will surely cause some heads to spin during their Sunday concert at Trägårn. Rumour has it that tickets might already be sold out, but if you are lucky, you can still grab one at the door. Another rumour is that they are absolutely great live. Go there, jump, scream, drink beer, all in a true punk style and you won't be disappointed.
