Have you been working hard all week and missed all the treats at the Theatre and Dance Festival? Well, it’s time to suit up for the night and get those shiny dancing shoes on. If you head for Storan on Friday night you’ll be brought back to the roots of street dance. Elements of Ninja will be showing their best vogue moves. (Yes we’re talking the dance Madonna immortalized in Vogue). The documentary “Check your body at the door” will be screened, giving you a glimpse of what has influenced the club/ house scene in New York since the early 90s. The evening will end with a chance for you to slide those dancing shoes across the floor. Club Soul Step will play house till the early morning.
It’s time for the Grolsch Block party to hit Magasinsgatan. A mini festival with a true urban vibe in collaboration with Vice Magazine. Bonjour Recordings, Trunkfunk Records and Caviar are hosts for the different stages on and around the street. Get yourself a takeaway box at Lokal and go on an evening-excursion in the hood!
Love is the codeword this weekend. Röhsska hosts the obligatory after party for the Theatre and Dance festival. Friday night with Erna Òmarsdóttir and the Talking Tree. Expect tales of weird and sad creatures in unknown territories with a mission to change the world. Saturday night is the grand finale with DJ Marathon featuring Sara Atari among others.
Don’t miss JayStarSevens´ “Footprints” at Nefertiti this weekend. As exciting as first day in school. Get wired up on soul, jazz, Latin and funk. Pete from BBE Records will be spinning real music for real people. The outdoor terrace will be managed by Rikard Masip from Raw Fusion, who will be turning funky Latin inspired grooves!
Gay Straight To Hell move in to the superb backyard of Magnus & Magnus. It’s gonna be a crazy queer night that will bring you back to the early days of GS2H. DJs will be spinning your favourite tunes while you dance the night away.
