SHOPPING: INGRID YARD SALE
Considering they’ve worked with some of Sweden’s most famous artists like Peter, Bjorn & John and Lykke Li, record label INGRID‘s storage rooms probably are Swedish music’s equivalent to the Vatican archives in terms of all the weird stuff that’s collected in there over the years. You might have a chance to pick up something from their ultra-rare collection this weekend: they’re having a yard sale at their offices, with merch, vinyl, old music gear, memorabilia and ‘surprises’ promised on sale.
Mar 10, 12:00-17:00, Björngårdsgatan 3

GIG: LAMINE CISSOKHO
The kora is a twenty-one string instrument, popular in West Africa, and the Senegalese musician Lamine Cissoko is one of the instrument’s masters. He currently lives in Kalmar, and put together an album, Kora+1, with some Swedish musicians and the producer Karl Jonas Winqvist. That album came out last year, and now you can see Cissoko bring it to life in Stockholm. He plays the Nomad Bar on Saturday.
