Time for lift off: Premier at Fredsgatan, the terrass is open. Barbeques and cocktails, music mash and warm embraces. Elitism and populism in a weird yet pleasant mix. Isn’t it about to say that summer is here?
It’s an electronic big beat metal attack. Stress and big crosses. Justice get behing the decks at Sturecompagniet. It will be a war of sorts but it will also be fantastic. We’re so glad Paris returned to us so quickly.
There’s something almost mystical about the Gothenburg club Ny Tid Ny Strid. We don’t know what they’re trying to get at with their pretty posters and exciting bookings, but whatever it is, it’s a stroke of genius. Come along to the Sugar Bar hear Muxika 77, Fé and Miriam Pemberton.
Jake OH has a silky voice, is generally referred to a the next soul hope and has already the charts with the song Reason to Live. Make sure you get to see him play alongside Krazy Fiesta before he gets too cool for Stockholm.
Maybe you won’t believe us but we have it from a very reliable source that Ellen Alien was the person responsible a few years ago for getting Stockholm indie crowds to make the switch to techno. This Friday she’s back.
Airwaves have outdone themselves by booking in Faust (!!!) to play at Friday’s kraut festival at Kägelbanan. We could just as well be in West Germany circa 1984.
