Happening This Weekend: Axis Dancehall, Plútó & Sensible Structures!

Published April 26, 2019

Welcome to summer, Grapevine readers. It’s hot. We’re sweaty. We’re ready to have a good weekend. Here are your not-to-miss events.

Friday, April 26th
Can’t think just feel // White Teeth: Cryptochrome / K.óla & AXIS DANCEHALL
20:30, Loft, Free!

MSEA’s “Can’t think just feel” concert series at Loft Hostel has, since it began last year, been bringing together some of the most exciting names in the Reykjavík music underground. The fourth edition is entitled “White Teeth.” This time, the night will feature three very different but equally fascinating performers. There’s the arty electronica and softcore rap crossover sound of husband-wife duo Cryptochrome, who ambitiously made videos for every track of their last record. Then there’s the colourfully lo-fi DIY alt-pop of the post-dreifing-scene-affiliated solo artist K.ola. Finally, there’s and the brash neon all-out party-kitsch explosion of AXIS DANCEHALL, playing tracks from their recent album, ‘Celebs.’ 

Saturday, April 27th
Skaðablót
20:00, Bíó Paradís, 2,000 ISK

So there’s no Sónar and Reykjavík dancers are reeling. But fret not, Plútó and NAVA have collected some of Sónar’s hotter bookings for a night of techno and views at Bíó Paradís. Árni Skeng will perform with Hessle Audio’s Bruce, Bjarki will duel with VIDEO1, and Plútó, Hermigervill, Örvar Smárason, Sólveig Matthildur and more will flesh out a program of compelling beats, following a program of visuals earlier in the evening. 2,000 ISK! What?

Sunday, April 28th
Sensible Structures
Until May 26th, 10:00-17:00, Kling og Bang

Three artists—Kristinn Már Pálmason, Bryndís Hrönn Ragnarsdóttir, and Ludwig Gosewitz—engage in dialogue. What is, or rather, is there a conceptual relationship between them? Don’t miss a special artist talk on April 27th at 16:00. If you can’t catch the exhibit today, Kling og Bang is open from 12:00 to 18:00 on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and 12:00-21:00 on Thursdays.
