Pumpehuset, 5 March
The Finnish nu-metal band Blind Channel will come to Pumpehuset on March 5. When Blind Channel got together back in 2013 in dark Northern Finland, one thing was certain: "it was all about going big or going home".
The band was recommended to sing in their mother tongue, Finnish, but they refused. That was never an option. Although it closed some doors to begin with, it only made the band want to kick them down even more.
This is exactly what they did when they won the Finnish Song Grand Prix (Fi. Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu) in 2021 and entered the biggest music show in Europe - the Eurovision Song Contest - landing an honorable sixth place. The song "Dark Side" topped several charts in Europe. Here, the entire continent fell head over heels for Blind Channel's fiery nu-metal hit 'Dark Side'.
With the self-proclaimed genre term "violent pop", inspired by nu metal and modern metal bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Hollywood Undead and Linkin Park, Blind Channel play crushing metal with sing-along friendly choruses.Now the door had been kicked in, but this was only the beginning. Blind Channel is only on the way up, and in March we can get a taste of what is in store in the future.
The Quiet Girl - forpremiere
Grand Teatret, 12 March
Join us for a sneak screening of the new Irish film The Quiet Girl, organized in cooperation with The Embassy of Ireland in Denmark.
The Quiet Girl (An Cailín Ciúin) is the first Irish-language film to be nominated for an Oscar. Ever.
The film is based on Claire Keegan's novella Foster.
So, we thought it would only be right to celebrate this event - even though we won't know who wins the Oscar until some hours later!
From 16.30 and onwards we will be serving an Irish refreshment in the street outside the cinema, and afterwards the Irish ambassador Elizabeth McCullough will introduce the film at 17.00.
Royal Arena, 14 March
To that extent, Michael Bublé also masters taking the audience on a special journey and giving them a present and unforgettable evening. With his effortless big vocals and nonchalant charisma, Michael Bublé has become the most prominent neo-crooner of his generation. Influenced by classic singers such as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, and contemporary artists such as Harry Connick Jr., he has acquired the ability to popularize old-school jazz and pop music for adults.
"He was a people person. Absolutely talented as a singer and performer. And clearly capable of bringing swing music up to a contemporary arena format. Very impressive!"
These were the words from the Danish music magazine Gaffa, which also awarded 5 stars, after Michael Bublé's two largely sold-out concerts in the Royal Arena in 2019, where the Canadian star last visited Denmark.
Michael Bublé's popularity in Denmark is definitely something to look out for - On his Love Tour, of which the two Copenhagen concerts were a part, he sold more tickets than in his hometown of Vancouver, as he himself pointed out charmingly and moved the two evenings in Royal Arena.
From 15 to 26 March
CPH:DOX celebrates its 20th anniversary with a star-studded programme.This year's festival will be launched on 15 March in DR Koncerthuset. The festival can be experienced in cinemas in Copenhagen - and in 28 other municipalities across the country - from 15-26. March, and since CPH:DOX can celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, it will be a festival with a big emphasis on 'party'.
200 documentaries, more than 100 world premieres, five international competitions and a critic's award. CPH:DOX celebrates its 20th birthday with a hard-hitting film program and a large line-up of international guests, including counts Joan Baez, Nathan Fielder, Wim Wenders, Susan Matthews, José Gonzales and Rutger Bregman.
This year's focus: Predicting the Past, Rewriting the Future
The 20th anniversary is not only marked with party and stardust. An anniversary is also an obvious occasion to reflect and look both backwards and forwards, and as the community-oriented cultural event CPH:DOX is, the gaze is not turned inwards, but outwards - towards society. This year's major festival theme examines how both the past and the future play a decisive role in our present. This is done with a large, two-part film program that looks both back and forward in time.
VEGA, 21 March
The Midnight consists of the American singer-songwriter Tyler Lyle and the Danish drummer and producer Tim McEwans. Their musical journey is fueled by an insatiable curiosity from their synth-heavy beginnings to now delivering thundering arena rock chords and infectious pop hooks. The duo's sound is a fusion of Lyle's American Dream stories and McEwan's cinematic soundscapes.
Electric Call Boy
Amager Bio, 21 March
Formed in 2010 under the name Eskimo Callboy, Electric Callboy has already made quite a splash in its first decade: winning awards, achieving top ten positions and causing a bit of a sensation, but judging by what's been going on in the last two years, all this was just the prelude.
Since singer Nico Sallach joined the band in 2020, the guys from Germany have really gone for it! The very first single with him broke the scale: "Hypa Hypa" not only reached over 60 million plays on YouTube and the usual streaming portals.The next single "We Got The Moves", which is also on the new album "TEKKNO", proved to be another huge hit. In particular, the video, in which the band gaslights themselves with undercut wigs and nose glasses in their typical self-deprecating fashion, has caused happiness among fans worldwide.
Also, the video for "Pump It", which was inspired by the aerobics videos of the eighties, led to suggestions that the band entered the Eurovision Song Contest for Germany with this song, after which the musicians spontaneously filmed an official application. However, participation in the national preliminary round for the ESC was rejected due to an alleged lack of radio suitability, sparking a storm of outrage against the jury, culminating in a petition with over 125,000 signatures.
Look forward to experiencing this funky format at the Amager Bio venue on March 21, 2023.
