It’s All About Pigs And Cats: Grísalappalísa & Kött Grá Pjé

Published August 12, 2016

The Icelandic band Grísalappalísa—a random mixture of the words for pig, leg and Lisa—is as original as their name. Founded in 2012 by Gunnar Ragnarsson and co-singer and poet Baldur Baldursson, the rock band rocks your world with lyrics inspired by Icelandic literary tradition. Grísalappalísa’s performance is followed by Iceland’s most awesome cat-friendly rapper, Kött Grá Pjé. Expect a lot of hair-flipping and head-banging.

Grísalappalísa & Kött Grá Pjé will perform at Húrra on August 25 at 21:00. Admission is 2000 ISK.
