GIG: WILDBIRDS & PEACEDRUMS
At this pre-party for Gothenburg’s Clandestino festival, Mariam The Believer and her partner Andreas Werliin come together as their duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums, a vehicle for music that’s rhythmic, acrobatic and wild.

COMEDY TRÄDGÅRDEN X SCALA COMEDY
Comedy has always been an occasional part of Trädgården’s schedule, but now they’re stepping it up a little with regular visitations from guest comedy clubs. This weekend it’s Scala Comedy who are taking over Krykan, with a line-up of Hasse Brontén, Melody Farshin, Thanos Fotas and Jonathan Rollins (USA). This is the premiere, so watch out for re-occurrences all throughout the summer.

GIG: KAMASI WASHINGTON
Seeing Kamasi Washington live is a chance to see one of the great musical geniuses of our times at work. The man who sprinkled magic all over Kendrick Lamar’s album To Pimp A Butterfly, Washington has been mastering jazz since he was 13, and his 2018 album Heaven And Earth sees him knit spiritualism and politics into a two and a half hour statement of his sound. He returns to Sweden this summer, with Berns the host venue for another Washington masterclass.
