Metropolis club in Copenhagen

Metropolis club in Copenhagen

I’ve spent the weekend in Copenhagen, visiting the 25 year anniversary celebration of Club Metropolis. The club started in 1993 at Barbue, a venue located on the first floor of Huset. Barbue was shut down a few years later, but resurfaced this weekend.

Yet another year at Way Out West

Yet another year at Way Out West

Time for yet another visit to Way Out West, the annual gigantic outdoor city festival in my hometown Gothenburg. At first the lineup seemed a bit sparse, but it actually turned out to be great.

Nine Inch Nails strikes back

Nine Inch Nails strikes back

Several years ago, I went to a Nine Inch Nails gig in Stockholm, at the same time as my own world collapsed around me. Trent hit a special note and I was moved to tears, transfixed by the flame. Two years later I stood alone in the rain, surrounded by thousands, while Trent teared away at his equipment in the forest of Arvika.

Kalabalik festival

I spent the weekend at an old abandoned amusement park in the deepest forests of Småland. It sounds like the plot of a bad zombie-splatter movie but it was even better. This was the first time the Kalabalik festival was held! The arrangers of sadly closed club Kalabalik in Växjö decided to gather a bunch of strange bands at an even stranger location, and voila! Instant success.

Hultsfred the zombie festival

Hultsfred the zombie festival

I’m back from the festival in Hultsfred, an annual event that died last year but got resurrected by the Scorpio necromancers to once more lay waste to the shores of lake Hulingen. Since Arvika festival was canceled a few weeks ago, this was one of the few places left in Sweden for festival concerts.

Report from Dögnvill

Report from Dögnvill

Dögnvill is a kind of arctic, yet urban, music festival. Tromsö is located 500 miles above the Arctic Circle and it was definitely the coldest festival I’ve ever been to. You could see snow-capped mountains from the festival area and cold air vapor were clearly visible from the singers!

Fave concerts of 2009

2009 must have been one of the busiest concert years ever. Perhaps in some way due to the decrease in record sales which forces the artists to hit the roads. Regardless of the reason I estimate that I visited about 80 gigs during the year, and here are some of the highlights.
