Happening Today: Markús and The Diversion Sessions Concert

Published June 9, 2016

Make your way over to Tjarnarbíó this evening to view what frontman, Markús Bjarnason, calls “one of the biggest concerts of my life.” Indie-folk and splendid fanfare­, two concepts that don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand (pay no mind to Edward Sharpe), are set to converge on one stage. The concert is a celebration of the solo LP, ‘The Truth the Love the Life’, and includes band members playing alongside violin, extra percussion, backing vocals, a gospel choir, and more. Just as exciting, (clarification: just as exciting for amateur set designers) is the onstage ambiance the band aims to create. Candles and fog machines will be in no short supply, creating a suitably grandiose backdrop for the night.

The concert takes place Thursday, June 9 at 21:00 at Tjarnarbíó, Tjarnargata 12. Admission is 2,700 ISK. More info here!
