Malmö club and concert tips: Friday, Feb 13

The Djungeltrumman club editor's tips.


Address: Babel, Spångatan 38

9pm – 11pm

180 kronor

Sick of getting stuck behind basketball players, guys with massive afros or girls with silly hats when you go to see your favourite band or biggest idol? Babel’s mezzanine enables you to avoid climbing up on somebody’s shoulders to see what’s happening on stage. A free view, tasty drinks and good sound: what more can you ask for when you go to a concert? Good music, presumably. Relax: Babel will see to that.


Live: Kleerup. Nobody can have failed to notice the rise of hard rock synth guy Kleerup. Even the secret police are watching him with interest.


Address: Debaser Malmö, Norra Parkgatan 2

Age: 18 and over

Bands are booked at Debaser at about the same rate as you might order a beer. In other words, Malmö’s live scene has warmed up nicely since Debaser arrived on the scene.


Live: The Islands. Elegant guitars and violins from the Anti Records label.


Address: Retro, Norra Skolgatan 24

10pm – 3am

Free entry

Age: 18 and over

Do your favourite records come from the Factory or Creation labels? Do you feel out of place in modern-day Malmö and feel you belong instead in Manchester circa 1982? Just how many times have you seen 24 Hour Party People? Go to Retro’s cellar, where you can form an understanding with people who are equally misunderstood.


Theme for the evening: My Bloody Valentine.

I LOVE! Brenda Walsh

Address: Babel, Spånggatan 38

11pm – 3am

80 kronor (60 kronor before midnight)

Age: 20 and over

The number of people making their way to ILBW bears witness to the genius of combining the two clubs I LOVE! and Brenda Walsh. It’s always packed, sweaty and pulsating when the trio consisting of Sofia, Emilia & Maria play hot house and pounding techno. Dance, flirt, dance some more, make out, and don’t forget to make every second drink a water.


Special guest: The guys from Spy Bar club Festa.


Address: Brogatan, Brogatan 12

11pm – 3am

Free entry

Where Alice in Wonderland hunts a rabbit, club manager Emil Broomé in Wonderland hunts disco. When you’ve finished your botanic experimentation among the fine selection of beers upstairs, it’s time to go down to the cellar, sorry – Wonderland – and hypno-dance to obscure disco. Then it’s time for an after-party with the author with the bushy hair.


Djs: Gerry Rooney (Black Cock/UK) Måns (Rollerboys/STHLM)
