Gothenburg club and concert tips: July 11 – 12

Where to go out in Gothenburg this weekend? Monthly Magazine has the answers (Click links for more information)

7 Summer Sins

7 Sins becomes 7 summer sins in the summer. Hmmm. What could that possibly refer to? Sunglasses indoors, white socks with flip flop sandals, denim shorts, BBQ stains on white shirts, frosted cocktails, rosé wine straight from the bottle and dehydration? Well you’ll just have to go to Storan to see for yourself. The theme for the night is surf and entrance is free.

Summer camp at Gårda

The successful club “Replokalen i Gårda” will transform into “Gårda Sommarkollo (Summer Camp) Experience” for the summer. To our delight they’re camping out at Uppåt Framåt. We’re really digging the new outdoor terrace there. With rock steady, reggae, ska, soul and punk on the speakers this can only be a perfect evening out. Not east because it makes a great setting to write home about: Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh, Here I am at Camp Gårda. Camp is very entertaining. And they say we’ll have some fun if it stops raining.


Locus has been running on the second Saturday every month for as long as we can remember. The deep electronic music club is always a sure fire hit on the urban Gothnburg club scene. Locus Sounds System will play music that will make your heart beat feel more at peace, your feet boost with energy and your mind refill with electro lovin’. Go go go!


Ok, so this is not really a club in that sense, but for the last few days of grey clouds and winds that resemble those of chilly days in late October, this is the perfect place to find shelter. The beer is kind of expensive and the place is kind of small … but it is friendly and it’s homely and chic. Tonight CMY will be playing house and slick techno beats.

Eric Bibb Trio

Bibb has an ability to meld traditional blues styles with more contemporary sounds. His last album “Get Overboard” is an exploration ofthe place where blues meets gospel and soul. Bibb´s performances are always filled with soul, heart and a feel for the music. The genre is almost irrelevant. He is quite simply a star. Nefertiti is the destination tonight.


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.
