It’s the last Garageband club night of the year, and to celebrate they’ve booked a band that might match the band’s mentality more than any other. Västerbron are a band that specialise in heavy-duty, punk-rock music, and they’ve just released a new record, Flyktbeteendevetenskap. This is their only Stockholm show of the year (although there’ll be more next year, as you can probably imagine), and they’re supported by TOMMA INTET.
Dec 21, 20:00-03:00, Debaser

Rama Lama wrap up what’s been a productive year for the label with a double live show. Art-pop band Cat Princess and pina colada crooner Chez Ali play live.

CLUB: COUNTRY MUSIC LABEL NIGHT
Country Music is a label that specialises in hard, heavy electronica music that also leans into the heavily artistic and conceptual. So their label night at Morfar Ginko this weekend (to celebrate the upcoming release of rip ME’s exhale, exfoliate) will be a dark, thumping adventure into the weird, adventurous side of club music. Rip ME play along with HAJ300 and Iinatti.
Dec 21, 21:00-01:00, Morfar Ginko
The Miyazaki film days continue at Bio Rio, with the award-winning Spirited Away lined up for this Saturday.

It won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2003.
