For some time now, we’ve had weeks with only a few good shows, and I’ve been waiting for that one week to arrive, that one week where you really don’t know what to pick. Well, it’s here!
Yup, this week has it all, and we’re starting tonight at VoxHall, where Matthew E. White will take the stage. You might’ve seen him at Roskilde or NorthSide, and then you know what to expect, and then you know it’s worth spending 200 kroner. If you haven’t experienced Matthew E. White before, well, go ahead then.
We’re staying at VoxHall, but we’re changing the music quite a bit. Next up it’s Jedi Mind Tricks.
This American group has been around since 1993, but released their debut album in ’97. Earlier this year, they released their 8th album! They’re best known from making social minded underground hip hop, and there’s a reason why the price is 240 kroner; they’re pretty damn good at it.
We’ve had an eye out for this guy for quite some time now, and we were certain that he’d make it this year when placing him on our ‘Class of 2015’, and I guess we were right. Alex Vargas is back perfomin’ at Train! We haven’t seen him since his performance at Spot Festival, where we gave him a 5.5/6, so it might be time to catch up! A couple of days ago we had a talk with Alex about his move to London, and his musical career in general – find the interview here. You can also win tickets to Alex Vargas‘ gig at Train right now on SoundOfAarhus.
Also performing Thursday is local Yung, and they’re probably performing at the venue that fits them best in Aarhus; Atlas! This is probably the band I’ve been listening to the most, since the release of the release of ‘Falter’ in 2014. ‘Falter’ was followed up by ‘Alter’ and then ‘These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores’, and I’m completely sold.
Take the day off Friday, and enjoy all the money that has been sent to your account by your employer, or the state. Relax a bit, stay at home, cook some food, and open up a bottle of wine. Save your energy, so you can go out Saturday evening. You could, and this is just an example, go to Radar, and witness two of the best bands singing in Danish; Maskinvåd + Mellemblond.
We’re ending the week with a big one at Train. Garbage is once again visiting Aarhus, and you might’ve seen them performing at NorthSide Festival back in 2012, where they gave one hell of a show. They’re performing their legendary debut album in this exclusive anniversary concert, which sort of makes it an expensive affair, but who knows, it might be the concert of your life?
