where's good to go for a random 'hope to see a good band' speculative gig attendance in stockholm?
(read in Yorkshire accent)
is going to Stockholm on holiday soon.
He wants to know
are you in Stockholm now jez?
that really is your best bet for random decent gig
I would strongly suggest however that you go to this record store
and check out all the flyers and posters
said record store also has a bar across the street where they have free gigs downstairs and around the corner is a cafe called String that do gigs on wednesday nights (hosted mainly by Labrador and featuring a lot of their acts)
be warned though that it is festival season here right now so not so much gigwise going on in the city - it instead being more club oriented in the summer months
I went there on a Saturday night when I visited Stockholm two years ago. There was a (immediately forgettable) Swedish band playing first and afterwards they had a fairly decent indie disco, mixing the more obvious tunes (Nirvana, Pulp) with some unexpected gems (Hidden Cameras, Magnetic Fields). Very polite, friendly and good-looking crowd.
quite nice, indeed.
you're a ledgend
And am learning swedish words that I can't pronounce. And stuff.
Hurrah for Sweden!
