GIG: LES FILMS/ REBECKA REINHARD
Another show at Landet this weekend, and one to watch out for for fans of cinematic shoegaze and scrappy indie rock.

Doors open at 20:00 and entry is 80kr.

CLUB: PARTY LIKE IT’S 2007-2011
Look, the real sign that you’re getting older is not people in your age group getting married, having kids, whatever. It’s actually when someone opens a nostalgia club night for the music from when you were between 15 and 22. If you’ve made your peace with the whole ageing thing, you can enjoy music the latest period to be nostalgia-ised, 2007-11, this weekend. They’ll be playing everything from the time period, from the music that aged well (MGMT, Bombay Bicycle Club, Phoenix) to that which maybe didn’t (LMFAO). Typhonic Braincry and Jada Groove DJ.
Feb 2, 22:00-03:00, Bar Brooklyn
