WHAT?
Parquet Courts follow up their acclaimed concert at Øya Festival in 2013 with their first ever club concert in Oslo. The NY-based band have been compared to Wire, Television, and Sonic Youth and were described thus by Rolling Stone Magazine on the release of their second album in 2014 “…these Brooklyn dudes go even deeper on ‘Sunbathing Animal’. They’ve outgrown the Pavement comparisons…”.

WHAT?
Daniel Kvammen came out of nowhere (ok – Geilo, Buskerud to be exact) with his debut album «Fremad i alle retninga» earlier this year, and has had an action-packed summer playing festivals the length and breadth of Norway. Inspired by both Norwegian and American folk music, and with a distinctive Halling dialect, Kvammen brings his own unique lyrical twist on everyday matters. On Friday he’ll perform at the National Library as part of Kulturnatt and before the concert he’ll discuss his relationship to Norwegian folk with research librarian Liv Krekan.

WHAT?
For lovers of indie music, Sufjan Stevens needs no introduction and the fact that he’s playing one of Oslo’s biggest venues – Sentrum Scene – suggests that even in little old Norway he’s achieved a position as one of his generation’s great musical pioneers. Stevens released a new LP called Carrie & Lowell earlier this year which met with critical acclaim, receiving a 9.3 from Pitchfork under “best new music” and an initial score of 90 from Metacritic.The album follows the nuances and trials of life with Stevens’ mother, Carrie, who was diagnosed bipolar and schizophrenic, and suffered from drug addiction and substance abuse, and includes Stevens’ stepfather, Lowell Brams.  Support from Mina Tindle.

WHERE?
Sentrum Scene, Sonja Henies plass 2
