Grapevine Shows Some Love

Grapevine Shows Some Love

Published June 10, 2010

We are generally inspired by Iceland and the stuff going on here. We wanted to bring y’all the good news happening in our fair country and why we love living here.

Havarí Austurstræti
They regularly host live music, and often serve free wine to go with it. This is very, very commendable behaviour. Furthermore, Útúrdúr’s selection of art books is excellent to browse through while listening to the live music and partaking in a plastic glass of box wine.

Noodle Station Skólavörðustígur
Hell yeah. Two flavours, 850 ISK and a whole lotta awesome.

GUS GUS
While their last album was a tad too depressing for crazy dancefloor spaz-outs, it was still really good. And it lasts remarkably well. If you haven’t yet blasted Add This Song in your headphones with your eyes closed, go try it right now.

Kaffibarinn Bergstaðastræti
It does what it does, and what it does ain’t failed us yet, damnit.

The waterslide at Laugardalslaug swimming pool
It’s crazy, that slide. It starts off all intense, with a couple of
bendy, swirly parts, before you descend into total and scary darkness.
Then some sorta light show starts up. Waterslides are always awesome,
this one especially so.

Lucky Records Hverfisgata
Reykjavík was practically begging for a store that sold used CDs and vinyl and other assorted music paraphernalia. Lucky Records is that store – go get lost in there right now.
