I realize a majority of you are not based in Stockholm, but I’m hoping some of you are stopping by in the near future, and below are some shows I think you should go see if in town in May.
And if there is no Sweden on your horizon, consider these a few very good reasons to change that.
(And please help yourself to some music).
May 19 Me and My Army, Annexet (supporting Glasvegas)
Me and My Army (here with The Only One) is the latest project of Andreas Kleerup (who is better know as solo artist and as the producer/writer behind Robyn’s With Every Heartbeat)
May 20, Säkert!, Gröna Lund
Får jag by Säkert! (or Annika Norlin as she is called, or Hello Saferide which is her moniker when she does music in English) writes clever (in a good way) lyrics in Swedish but I hope and think the music comes across even without the words. She pronounces them nicely, no?
May 21 Nottee, Debaser Slussen (with Das Pop)
Nottee – Don’t Waste Your Light On Me (get it here)
And daytime Saturday you should also swing by Gärdet where there is a tiny little festival (don’t tell your friends because I shouldn’t be telling you) with a big bunch of bands playing…
Sibille Attar aka Little Red Corvette and also known from [ingenting] that I wrote about here.
…including Little Red Corvette (<– video) and Mackaper (download one of their songs + a Michael Rother cover).
May 26 Serenades, Södra Teatern
May 27, jj, Trädgården Under bron
If you didn’t the other day, download jj’s new single No One Can Touch Us Tonight for free here
