Sir Paul McCartney. The Beatles. Wings. Over 100 million sold albums… ‘Nuff said.
The “Out There” world tour finally makes it to Norway with a show at the Telenor Arena in Oslo. If not quite a once in a lifetime opportunity then at the age of 73 there’s surely a limit to how many world tours the septuagenarian has left in him. True pop royalty, and a chance to experience over 50 years of musical history in one night.
A strong contender for party of the week is this offering from Papadunk and co. A low brow, high fun factor is guaranteed as well as a chance to rub shoulders with those of Oslo’s movers & shakers who haven’t already left for Magaluf or Kragerøy.
DJ line up:
Erlend Aaserud Martinsen
Olav Hamburger Larssen
Maria Katarina Tyssebotn
Paulo A. Anabalón Velasquez
The Villa is arguably Oslo’s premier nightclub when it comes to those interested in the less commercial end of dance/electronic music, and during July they’ve put quite the line up together. This coming Saturday it’s Tromsø born, Bergen based producer/dj/legend Bjørn Torske‘s turn to take over the wheels of steel. Torske has been releasing music since 1998 on labels like Tellé Records and Smalltown Supersound, and his mix of dub, cosmic disco, house, and Balearic should be a hit on a hot summer night in Oslo. Also, appearing the same night are Luftwaffel – and Femme Fatales who celebrate their 5 year anniversary in the side room Sweatshop.

It was only a matter of time before the Frank Znort Quartet appeared on this list. An Oslo institution that have played together for 18 years, and number 21 members in total, it’s not easy to describe exactly the secret to their longevity and success, but what we do know is that they’ve packed out Blå every Sunday night since 2007. With a tag line – we fuck up your Monday’s – and an endless of supply of jazz/punk/big band/blues/rock/ska/calypso numbers this is the place to be for anyone who feels the weekend is just a bit too short.
American jazz singer Al Jarreau has received a grand total of seven Grammy awards spread across four decades, and is the only one to ever win in three different categories: jazz, pop and R’n’B. Jarreau’s unique voice and creative musical expression has made him one of the most interesting and acclaimed artists of our time. Jarreau’s first concert in Oslo was in 1977 at the legendary Club 7 and on Monday evening he’ll perform at the slightly more luxurious Sentrum Scene.
