Each year, the best of the Icelandic underground battles it out for a chance to play at Germany’s hallowed Wacken Metal Festival. This iteration features six groups—Alchemia, Keelrider, Morpholith, Paladin, Thrill of Confusion, and Úlfúð—who together will bring you a night of pure rock madness. Come for thrash, power, doom and a whole lot of sweat. Previous winners Une Misère will headline.

May 12th-26th, Íslenskt Gráfik

Helsinki-based Anna Niskanen is here with a series of cyanotype works on paper and silk. They depict the flowing tides of the world, and the magnetic pushes and pulls which drive them. The exhibit opens today, but if you can’t catch it, Íslenskt Gráfik is open Thursday to Sunday from 14:00 to 18:00.
