WHAT?
In a musical week dominated by Øya Festival and it’s various offshoots, we’ve been spoiled for choice for concerts in Oslo this week (which was a welcome relief after the barren weeks of July and the “fellesferie”! ) and we kick off with Klubb:Øya at Revolver on Tuesday night. Six artists on the bill but it’s especially the dreamy electro pop of Apothek and “trippy calypso neo soul rap” of kildaphew that we recommend here.

Cellar:
19.30 YOON

WHAT?
The main event, Norway’s best festival, and up there with pretty much any festival internationally too if you ask us, Øya is back and with one of their best ever line-ups. Headliners include CHIC feat. Nile Rodgers, Florence & The Machine, Beck, The War On Drugs, and Belle & Sebastien. Local heroes Enslaved, Sondre Lerche, Susanne Sundfør, Thåstrøm, deLillos, Beglomeg and too many more to mention all add up to the musical highlight of the year for Oslo-dwellers. At the time of writing there were less than 100 one day tickets left for Wednesday, and all other tickets were sold out.
WHERE?

HOW MUCH?
Day pass 849NOK

WHAT?
Dragging ourselves away from Øya shenanigans for a second, it would have been criminal not to recommend the one and only Tony Allen who’s performing as part of the Oslo Jazzfestival lineup. When you’re described by Brian Eno as “perhaps the greatest drummer who has ever lived” and Fela Kuti says “without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat” then you know you’ve done something right as a musician. Active since the late 1950s and with collaborations with Kuti himself, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Sebastien Tellier, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Flea to mention just few to his name the over-used title of legend seems entirely fitting here. 

WHERE?
Rockefeller, Torggata 16
HOW MUCH?
350NOK + ticketing fee

WHAT?
Fargenes Yacht Klubb include members of The New Wine, Kakkmaddafakka, Hawkon, and Miss Tati and play covers of west coast yacht rock/pop from the period 1972 – 86. So far, so folkehøyskole apart from the fact that they’ve sold out every single show i Oslo they’ve ever played, including Revolver, Parkteatret and Rockefeller. Returning to Oslo for the 6th year in a row, they’ll play two nights at Rockefeller each one covering a different musical epoch.
On Thursday it’s 1974 – 1979 and Christopher Cross, pink suits, beards, Steely Dan, boot cut jeans, Rhodes piano,  «More Than A Feeling». champagne and yachts.
Lionel Richie, Yamaha DX7, shoulderpads, George Michael in a swimming pool, lipstick, glitter, Phil Collins,  snare drums with gated reverb, haircuts and «Yah Mo Be There» are all key words for Friday when they’ll cover 1980 – 1986. Friday is sold out, still some tickets left for Thursday. 

WHERE?
Rockefeller, Torggata 16
HOW MUCH?
250NOK with an Øyapass
