Start spreading the news...

I'm going to New York this Fall! And I'm so excited.

I could definitely use all kinds of tips and tricks on what to see and where to go.

So long, Summer!

Lucky ones are we all till it is over

I took another trip to Malmö yesterday and had chilenska burgare with the oldies but goodies. And in the evening Eva joined me for Johnossi. They were noisy as always - in the best sort of way.

Then came the moment I had been waiting for. Band of Horses is one of my favourite bands, and getting to see them on one of these last summer nights was awesome.

Oh, and I finally bought the cutest boots ever! They'll be on my feet every day this Fall.

I don't wanna feel like it's an end of a Summer

We've reached that time of year when Malmö becomes one big festival. Definitely one of my favourite seasons. I went there with Eva yesterday to see This Is Head, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (most adorable name for a band ever!), and Shout Out Louds. But first we did a little shopping and had some great food.

This Is Head were really great. I like how they just play and play without that many lyrics.

The drummer wasn't wearing any shoes. So cozy.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart were good too. I think I should listen to some more of their records.

Some parts of Malmöfestivalen are absolutely horrible, but if you avoid the Langos and ugly small amusement parks it actually looks like this, and cool people hang around drinking folköl.

We even ran into you...

Shout Out Louds did a really good job - as always. So many people came to see them. They really are one of the best live acts I've ever seen. I love how they use so many different instruments and make it all sound so great. Not to mention the lyrics. Åh! Last night they even did a Swedish version of
Is There A Ghost. It was awesome.

We're going back to Malmö on Tuesday to see Band Of Horses and eat Älgkebab.

När hösten kommer

It seems that the Summer days are almost over and Fall is just around the corner. But maybe it's not so bad, if you get to wear cute things like this when the days get colder...

Sweater by Sonia Rykiel

It's been raining in Cph ever since we got back from Göteborg, but today it actually seems a bit like Summer, so tonight we'll go to the outdoor cinema and see (500) Days Of Summer - again. Love that movie.

One of those things that makes me fall in love with Göteborg even more

Check this out. Someone came up with the idea of small concerts on the trams in Göteborg. How great is that?

Watch more videos from tram sessions here

Way Out West

I'm back from Göteborg, Kulturkalaset and Way Out West now. But the truth is I'd much rather still be hanging around the streets of Gbg. I can't stop loving that city.
Eva and I arrived Tuesday afternoon and went straight out for some shopping och fika. In the evening we went to see Timo at Göta Platsen. Han var grym som alltid.

The next day we went to hang out by the harbor... It's just so pretty there with all the boats and cranes.

The sun was shining while the rain came down, so a beautiful rainbow appeared over Vasastan...

The girls arrived Thursday afternoon at Centralen, and in the evening we had great sushi.

We visited Styrbord Barbord for drinks, and then ran through the rain to Jazzhuset and Almedal.

Finally came the first day of music at Slottsskogen.

This is true, you know...

We saw Jens Lekman (med alldeles för mycket bas och dålig ljud!), Paul Weller, Beach House, TSOOL, Miike Snow, Iggy, LCD Soundsystem and The XX.

And after midnight Eva and I went to see Hurricane Gilbert at Henriksberg. And so did a lot of other people. Apparently the place was full, and after waiting, waiting and seeing people give up and leave the queue we almost lost hope of getting to see him. But then the kindest doorman decided to let in the two of us... I almost hugged him out of happiness. Hurricane var grym som fan!

Saturday we went to see The Drums and a bit of Shout Out Louds, and of course the lovely Mumford & Sons. They were awesome, but I would like an explanation of why they didn't play
Winter Winds, which is my favourite song. Besvikelse!

We listened to Anna Ternheim, who surprised everyone by bringing sweetest Henrik Berggren with her. And then came the moment we had been waiting for: Håkan's 10 year anniversary gig. What a party! He and the band even wore their old sailor costumes for old times' sake (för gamla tiders skull).

After Lykke Li, La Roux and Chemical Brothers our legs couldn't bear the thought of standing in line for any more concerts på klubbarna, so we decided to have a drink or two at Hemma Hos. That bar is the best. We stayed there till closing time and chatted to the sweet ladies behind the bar. Then we moved along to good old Sticky Fingers for some dancing and meeting funny Swedes. Vilken kväll det blev!

We were all extremely tired yesterday, so we hung out on the quay watching the boats go by.

We even met Mr. Evert Taube, and I couldn't resist kissing his sweet little cheek.

I miss Gbg like crazy already ♥

Men Eva, Eva... Vi måste börja leva

Eva and I are leaving for bästa Göteborg tomorrow, and Cecilia, Vita and Hoang are joining us on Thursday. I can't wait to go and have some fun. We have been longing for this... especially after all that has happened lately.
So many great bands are playing this year. We will be very busy running from one stage to another for three days. And of course we will be shopping and eating loads of chokladtårta as well...
