After five years of side and solo projects they are finally back! First Floor Power entered the Swedish music scene with the much celebrated record We Are The People in 2000. They haven't released an album since 2003 and lead vocalist Jenny Wilson left the band not long afterwards. But now the three remaining members have pulled their vocals and instruments together and are celebrating the release of their third album: Don't Back Down. The music of First Floor Power is maybe best described as creative pop, experimental rock and electro vibes. On Friday they are playing together with Speedmarket Ave at Pustervik!
Comb your hair sideways, put on your polka dotted dress and/or your skinniest Cheap Mondays and head out for the indie party at Röda sten. E du go Eller is one big, warm, happy indie fiesta! Tonight: Release and after-party for the boys in the band Samtidigt som.
What feels more like summer than ice cream and partying until dawn? The people behind the club ice cream parlour decided to combine the two and are throwing a grand ice cream parlour party at Respect this weekend. The night's theme is Blueberry. Free ice-cream at the bar, house music and a laser show are some of the things to expect at Respect.
The much successful club Radio London are moving their DJ-set to the tropical-inspired bar Kontiki in Änggården. The music is like the name implies: influenced by Britannia, in all shapes and forms. Britpop, indie, rock, garage, beat and psych. And if the dance floor gets too hot, Kontiki surely has one of the best outdoor terraces in town. Sun all night.
When all the downtown pubs and bars are either closed or empty, Kelly's is there like a dear friend for those with the hangover blues. Chill out with some cheap pizzas, beer and participate in their Sunday pub quiz. Try your knowledge in music and films and you might win a gift card at the bar!
