This Sunday is St. Patricks Day, which means one thing: There will probably be a lot of drunk people in Reykjavík. Please get lit responsibility, but if you don’t want to, here are some not-to-miss events this weekend.

Sólveig Matthildur in RVK with Discipline + Witching Hour DJ set
21:00, Gaukurinn, 1,000 ISK
You might know Sólveig Matthildur from the synthy goth band Kælan Mikla, or her solo debut “Unexplained Miseries & the Acceptance of Sorrow.” She serves up a dark, blood-red gem of hazy, gloomy electronic alt-pop, brought to life by her huge voice. Onstage, her visual, emotional, and aural impact is a jolt of electricity—Sólveig’s music feels like a clear channel for the communication of raw emotion. At this show, she will premiere her second album “CONSTANTLY IN LOVE.” We are ready.

Elín Elísabet Einarsdóttir – Pláss
Until March 26th, Gallery Port
Elín Elísabet—a regular contributor to the Grapevine—is here with a series of large, pink women. They take up space. They are feminine. They are resilient. They are delicate. They are strong. They are a response to the societal demand that women be petite and dainty, quiet and compliant. Elín was inspired by the huge rocks you see on beaches, which in their roundness appear soft, and made them pink to reference thighs and bellies. We’re here for it. Fuck outdated demands on femininity. The exhibit is open from 13:00 to 17:00 today, but if you can’t make it, Gallery Port is open Wednesday to Friday from 13:00 to 18:00 and weekends from 13:00 to 17:00.
