For lovers of jazz, noise and general good times Blow Out present their last event before the summer is upon us and have some of the creme de la creme of Norwegian experimental musicians on board. Saxophonist Kjetil Møster is well known from his exploits with Ultralyd, The Core, Datarock, Zanussi 5 and his own solo project Møster. Bassist Michael Duch is a member of Lemur and EN EN EN amongst others, and musician, artist, label boss and fanzine publisher Lasse Marhaug has been a crucial member of the international noise/experimental scene for longer than he probably cares to remember.

Norway’s Nr.1 Sober Club apparently, and quite possibly the only one. But a trend that has been doing the rounds in London, New York and Berlin for a little while has finally come to Oslo. Soundmind Norway presents their first Sober Club at MESH with internationally successful South African band Goodluck, Oslo club phenomena Get Dancy! and secret special guests.

With only 2 concerts in Oslo since 2009, and a brand new double vinyl release of their classic debut album «Jet Age» on Round 2/Big Dipper out this month, this is one of the hottest tickets in Oslo this weekend to say the least. So much so that the show has been sold out for weeks – so start calling in those favours now. Kåre and The Cavemen only ever released two albums but both have have a cherished spot in the Norwegian rock canon. Mostly instrumental songs inspired by Dick Dale and Link Wray, exotica and vintage surf movies, and with lead guitarist Knut Schreiner aka Euroboy aka longtime member of Norway’s rock’n’roll royalty Turbonegro this is a rare chance to catch one of Oslo’s most legendary bands.

Oslo’s self-proclaimed “best club festival” Gut Feelings (and who are we to disagree) returns with their 6th edition – and maybe their best ever lineup. Taking place across one weekend and 2 different venues and showcasing more than 10 different bands/artists this is the place to be for all Oslo indie music fans.
Another group of young Norwegian artists (you may remember Mutual Intentions from the same venue last week) gathered together to push the envelope, challenge boundaries and put on amazing parties. This time under the umbrella of Rotløs and with a collection of bands, artists and scenographers all with the idea of giving you the best Saturday night out EVER!
