Despite the slightly pretentious write up on their Facebook event, this regular series of acoustic concerts on the roof of The Thief hotel in Tjuvholmen is actually a worthwhile attempt at getting various up-and-coming artists into a slightly different setting, and in front of the type of audience that maybe doesn’t go to a bunch of shows every week. (Judgmental -moi?) First concert starts at 19.15 already.

Lineup:
LALLET
HANNA VON BERGEN
ISELIN SOLHEIM 

WHERE?
The Thief, Tjuvholmen
