The gig is sold out, but we've got to give it a shout out anyway. Since the band reunited at the Sweden Rock Festival earlier this summer, many have been waiting for this gig at Trägårn. The band is one of the front-runners in the melodic death metal genre that has been named "The Gothenburg sound." If you manage to get tickets, you will be treated to a piece of live Gothenburg music history.
The last day of a week of Kustomart at Gallery 54 will be celebrated at Kontiki. We're not sure if the theme of the party is going to lean towards the DIY tradition or be a massive "Pimp my ride" extravaganza. Either way, with The Charger on stage it will certainly be a party. Their myspace page profile states: "If The Chargers had avatars it would be in the form of three cave men riding a big gas-guzzling muscle car, like a '72 Dodge Charger." How about that?
A new club is breaking ground in Gothenburg. Three of the city's most well known DJs will be camping out at Storan tonight. Christoffer Falk has turned into one of the most reputable DJs on the Swedish west coast club scene. Johan Soh has done more than 1,500 gigs in his professional career and Karl Von Spreti is the star behind clubs like Locatelli and Orgia. Expect an extraordinary set of electro dance music!
Scandinavian raw punk from the early 80s. One of Sweden's most influential and legendary punk bands. It all started sometime back in 1980 in the suburbs of Malmö in the south of Sweden. After the gig at West Coast Riot earlier this summer, Fredrik Strage wrote in DN that, in contrast to most reunited punk bands, Moderat Likvidation has kept their anger intact! Punk Is Not Dead!
Scars on Broadway is the long-awaited collaboration between guitarist/frontman Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan. Both are best known for their work in the Grammy winning band System of a Down. Daron Malakian addresses the project as just rock, but also with some metal influences in the System of a Down style. We are stoked!
