Free entrance // Friday 16-19  Saturday 13-17

Okay, I admit it: I’ve never really been a fan of graffiti. There’s just so much bad graffiti/tagging out there, so I never really gave this art form a fair chance. But, that stops now as I’ve stumbled upon Kasper F. Nielsen and his surrealistic photorealistic street art.

Kasper F. Nielsen has a fondness for Nørreport station, and some of the pieces in this exhibition are stencils on scraps from the renovation of this old train station. Kasper is inspired by thinkers such as Jean Baudrillard and Erving Goffman, and my favorite pieces are his graffitied S-train doors.

This vernissage won’t just be a display of well-executed and relevant street art, it will be an entire evening with street culture as DJ Poonyaporn Boontumma Breaks delivers the music. Don Fisso, an underground street clothing brand, will be displaying the latest collection characterized by the break dance movement and culture.

Depending on what you’re up for, you can also see the exhibition the day after, on Saturday. This will be a more classic have-a-glass-of-wine-while-you-walk-around-the-exhibition-listening-to-some-quiet-background-music event. No matter what you choose, go see this exhibition – Even if you’re not a breakdancing hand signs-throwing homeboy.

If you’re busy on the 2th or 3th, the exhibition will be at VESS until the 7th of March.

Frost festival – a winter music festival – begins today and is celebrated with a party at Bremen Theatre.

Copenhagen Winter Jazz Festival

Posted 1 February 2012 by Smunk

Copenhagen invites you to get winter jazzy for the next two weeks!

The annual Copenhagen Winter Jazz festival has kick-off today and runs for two full weeks, with big and small jazz concerts all over Denmark.

One of the ideas behind the Winter Jazz festival is to put focus on all the dedicated jazz places all over Denmark, and to encourage different music venues to be more jazzy..

Most of the concerts are being held at small music venues and have free entries.

So get out there – support your local music café or bar and get jazzier! It will definitely keep you warm in the winter cold!

Bitchslap magazine – one of the coolest independant magazines in the DK. If you don’t know it yet, I suggest you find a free copy in one of the hotspots they’re distributed to. Or even better – snatch a copy at the Bitchslap#14 release party.

Bitchslap, to me, is subculture, street, art, fashion, design, photography, music and coolness. Check it out. 

At the party, there’ll be dj’s, a (supposedly) legendary dance competition, 20,- bar and free Tuborg Gold from 21:00 – 22:00.

12:00 – 21:00 // no entrance fee
One year ago Copenhagen got this super cool street facilities’ area called StreetMekka. Streetmekka is an initiative to improve the circumstances for street culture in Denmark by offering dance-, parkour-, soccer-, DJ- and basket ball classes INDOOR.
It is kept loyal to the street by looking sort of rough inside with the graffiti decorated concrete walls and asphalted basket ball lots. No wonder Streetmekka has become real popular during the year and friday it is time to celebrate this!

On B-day ALL CLASSES ARE FREE and no matter if you would like to join in or just watch, I think there are some really cool things going on:

Dance battles, drawing workshops, DJ school, street soccer, concerts, double-dutch and live media coverage by DR.

See the entire program

No doubt it will be great and of course there is an after party to attend to as well. After party at Rust See you there!
