This week holds a ton of great concerts, and there’s a lot more than we’ve picked out for you this week! Here’s our 6 recommendations.
First up is one of our local favorites, a band we’ve been around a couple of times now, latest with their solid performance at Psych Fest. Wednesday evening at HeadQuarters, you can once again witness Tales of Murder And Dust! Rumour has it that there’s new material from the local neo-psych/shoegaze band. The price is only 30 DKK.
The very same evening Aarhus will be visited by the iconic Primal Scream, with legendary Bobby Gillespie in front. They will be performing at Train, and it’s actually their only concert in Denmark this time. For more than 30 years these guys have been called the most innovative british band. Back in May they released their latest album, ‘More Light’, and album that has been critically acclaimed worldwide. I can only imagine that a lot of bands would love to play support for this band, and job landed at the partly local Annasaid – well deserved! The price here is 375 DKK.
The story continues Thursday, with two great bands in town. At Radar you can witness one of this years Northside names – Frightened Rabbit. At Northside they gave a 4/6 star concert, and the Arcade Fire and Mumford & Sons similar band, will indeed perform a solid amount of indie-rock Thursday at Radar. There’s only a few tickets left, so hurry up and buy one! The price is 150 DKK.
If you don’t manage to get a ticket, there’s a great alternative at Atlas. The young dutch talent Jacco Gardner stops by, and he will perform the material from his incredible debut album ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’. This guy is super talent when it comes to mixing the classical instruments with raw psychedelic effects, and he has definitely managed to create an original sound. Support this evening comes from the multi-national Copenhagen based band Halasan Bazar, with roots in Denmark, England, Norway and Australia. Their sound is mixture of psych-pop and psych-folk with happy rhythms inspired by 60’s rock. The price is only 90 DKK.
Saturday also holds two concerts, both with some of the newest stars on the danish music scene. At Train you can experience the 24-year old Karen Marie Ørsted, under the alias MØ. She’s recently released here EP ‘Bikini Daze’, and she has in no time established herself on the danish scene, and had sold out shows in Los Angeles and London. Support is the young super talent Sekuoia, who is known for his post-dub and experimenting electronica. Earlier this year he gave one of the best warm up – performances at Roskilde (in my opinion), and he’s definitely a one to watch. Price is 160 DKK. At VoxHall you can experience a band who fought their way to the top, and that’s where they, deservedly, can be found today. In 2012, Go Go Berlin gave 44 concerts and in 2013 they’ve reached more than 80. Through their live-shows they’ve created a fan base, and all the before mentioned concerts were before the release of their debut album ‘New Gold’, that both Gaffa and Soundvenue gave 4/6, and that we here at SOA gave 4.5/5! As special guests they’ve invited none other than Nelson Can. This concert costs 130 DKK.
