GIG: MIYNT/ IVY
The world’s most obviously-named club in the world, Swedish Rock’n’Roll Club returns for its second outing this weekend. Headlining the bill is MIYNT, the riviera-pop star whose debut EP EP No.1 was one of our favourite things from 2016. She’s been quiet on the new music front since then, so guests can hopefully expect some new songs to get an airing at this gig. Joining her is IVY, a new project from Annika Nalin (also of Lejonsläktet and HOLY), which she’ll be debuting at this show. DJs come from BOYS and Spice Boys. That ol rock and roll huh? It just doesn’t go away…
FOOTBALL: BAR BRASIL PARTY
Unless your name is Julen Lopetegui, you’re probably pretty excited for the World Cup (it’s officially illegal not to be, I don’t care if you like football or not). And seeing Brazil play their opening match is always a special part of every World Cup, to see what shape the seleção are in for this tournament. Will Neymar light up the tournament, or will the PSG star throw a strop and torpedo their chances? They kick off their campaign on Sunday against Switzerland (who also have more than a few handy players – Xherdan Shaqiri might have something to say about ruining Brazil’s day). You can watch the match at Debaser, who are throwing a special party to celebrate, with live music and food.

Disco comes to up into the sky at Tak on Saturday. Their club Diskotak returns, with Fatima Osman, Beniwasta and Fabio & Stef lined up to DJ. It’s the best place in the city to dance as the sun goes down.
FESTIVAL: STOCKHOLM AMERICANA
Fans of Americana should grab their cowboy hats and fantasies about Route 66 and head to Södran this weekend. Sthlm Americana is the city’s annual celebration of all things musically Americana, and now it’s back, this time in the summer. Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Whitney Rose and The Handsome Family headline, with I’m Kingfisher and more representing the Swedish contribution to the genre.
