My brother had a combined 100-drumset-anniversary, birthday and going-away party yesterday.
As a gift I wrote, arranged and and recorded a song for and about him: Freddesången (click the small play button to stream directly)
Good food, Good wine, Good friends, Good times!
Yesterday we were at two parties (and in between a party of our own)
First at Andreas, turning 30 – Relaxed, nerdy and fun. Really tasty carrot cake!
Then at Anders, turning 40 – Loud, wild and fun. By the time we got there, everyone was already quite drunk, and shortly thereafter the cigars came out (Literally, not metaphorically).
Somehow I ended up being DJ for a part of the night, and actually got a lot of compliments for my music choices. 🙂
This Friday me and some friends went to an event taking place in the Stockholm Culture House.
The small 30SEK fee gave you entrance to a large amount of short concerts, performances, movies, exhibitions and such.
Especially good were:
- George Kentros & Matthias Peterson, with an interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons that involved sampling a live violin and playing back distorted loops – Industrial Violin!
- Abalone Dots, playing bluegrass with a touch of Swedish Folk Music – Softgrass.
- Short film festival – Oue!
- Klubb Sunkit – the club for odd and forgotten pop music – Muzak, Easy Listening, Exotica and Swedish Dance Band.
After a couple of hours we all needed to go somewhere more quiet, so we went to Kasper for beer.
