Dark, heavy synth music straight from the night’s murkiest, strangest emotions – Ease have established their style across two EPs to date. After a long pause Siri Jennefelt and Niclas Anderstedt Lindgren are on the comeback trail this summer, with new music in the pipeline and new shows booked. They’re back in Stockholm for the first time in a while on Friday at Morfar Ginko, with Moloton‘s Moonilena on DJ duties.
EXHIBITION: HOKUSAI – A JAPANESE ICON
For just two weeks, Millesgården are running an exhibition of the work of the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. Hokusai’s woodcuts are famous, especially from his series Thirty Six Views Of Mount Fuji, which will be on display during the exhibition. He’s also the artist behind the famous piece The Great Wave off Kanagawa, which we’re 100% sure you’ve seen everywhere before. The exhibition will be opened on Saturday by the Japanese ambassador Jun Yamazaki.
May 19, 10:00-17:00, Millesgården
Having debuted it last year, Växthusfesten, Trädgården’s restaurant Växthuset’s one-day festival, is back for the first time in 2018. The concept is simple: some of Växthuset’s suppliers will be on-site to show off their produce, and the foodies among you can build up your knowledge by chatting with them about what they do. There’ll also be vegan brunch on offer from 12:00 and the band Bröderna Lindgren (“for everyone between 4 and 94”) will play.
May 19, 12:00-20:00, Trädgården
A new club concept comes to Hobo on Saturday. It’s called Bliss (I’m not doing the stupid ! for an i thing) and describes itself as a “concept brought up for the joint love of warm dance music and friends”. Kimchii, Yourhighness, Saine & Smith are booked in for the opening night
EXHIBITION: NADINE BYRNE
The new exhibition at Elastic Gallery is entitled The Permanent Void, and it’s by the sculptor and artist Nadine Byrne. Pieces that tell the story of three people, Byrne’s mother, older sister and herself, the exhibition takes material from those figures’ lives and incorporates it into striking, powerful art.
