FESTIVAL: URBAN DELI TURNS 10
Believe it or not, it’s been ten years since Urban Deli started out on Nytorget, and to celebrate that anniversary they’re throwing a one-day festival this weekend. On Saturday they’ll be setting up a tent with a mushroom market, drinks testing and tasting, DJs and live music from Les Big Byrd. There’s also some natural wine tasting sessions between 17:00 and 21:00.
Oct 19, 11:00-01:00. Nytorget
Paradiso is already a Stockholm Jazz Festival venue, hosting Bernt Rosengren, Jan Allan and more during the festival. But they’ve also got a side gig. Dubbing it Jazz + Konst (jazz and art), it’s a tribute to a similar work by a Berlin-based graffiti artist, ZASD, in 1999. This time, artists Thomas OKOK Gunnarsson and Jacqueline Östlind will paint while the Paradiso Jazz Trio performs live. The last bout takes place on Friday at 17:30.
Oct 18, 17:30-18:30, Paradiso
STAND-UP: OPEN MIC + KARAOKE
Feel like you’d be guaranteed a successful career as a stand-up, if only you had the chance to air your rib-cracking gags before an audience? Well, now you’ve got that chance, as Little T8NG is hosting an open-mic this Friday. The format is simple – put your name in a hat, and when it gets pulled out, you get onstage and knock the audience out with your best five minutes. Or flop, whatever (and as an audience member, maybe that’s why you want to be there). They’re also hosting a karaoke evening downstairs before the club starts proper, so you’ll have two chances to stand in the spotlight.
Oct 18, 16:00-21:00, Little T8NG
CLUB: TOKYO NIGHTS
Things lean towards Japan at Morfar Ginko this weekend, as Tomadachi and MRj take over with their Tokyo Nights club concept. Tomadachi, aka Johan Johansson, will be putting on a showcase of vapourwave and chill house from his album Plastic Beats, and fellow Japan-aficionado MRj will be spinning songs discovered on his adventures in crate-digging in the country over the past eight years.
Oct 19, 21:00-01:00, Morfar Ginko
FILM: MONSTERS OF FILM
For fans of horror films (and Halloween is drawing near), there’s a treat in town this week. Monsters Of Film is Stockholm’s horror film festival, and its 2019 edition is taking place this week at various cinemas around the city. The festival specialises in horror obviously, but also stretches into sci-fi, fantasy and other genres. It takes place this week at five different locations around the city. Biograf Zita, Bio Rio, Bio Capitol, Delight Studios and Skärisbiografen. This year’s line-up includes a number of package evenings with multiple films, including The Devil’s Horror Night at Zita and Grindhouse Night at the same venue, along with panel discussions and Q’n’As. Monsters Of Film festival continues until October 20, when it closes with a screening of The Golden Glove.
