I love Stockholm.

Ugh, don't get me started on hipster Stockholm. (Great city in the summertime though. Beautiful.)

That guy in the top pic looks like a typical creep.

And this:

In fact, packed venues were the standard throughout my stay, as at Debaser Medis the next night. (There are actually two Debaser addresses in Stockholm, with a third branch in the town of Malmö.)

That's where you need to go - not Stockholm.

See, you got me started!

I agree, and when my wife and I were there last Summer we managed to avoid anything anoying.  The places we went and people we met were pleasant as could be.  Of course we pretty much did tourist stuff, didn't go to any rock shows or attempt to uncover the real arts scene or anything that would have put us in the path of pretty rock youngsters.  I was disappointed with Skansen.  Half the stuff was closed and the stuff that was open was just kind of weird (except for Swedenborg's Summer hut).

Too bad about Skansen being closed, jed - it's a nice place when it's open. Sounds like you had a nice time.

Fido, I'm from the aforementioned Malmö. Or at least I've been living her for the last 12 years. It's just by Copenhagen in southern Sweden.

You know what's worse than having a cheesy song stuck in your head?
When that song is in a language you don't even speak.

Thanks a bunch, TL. Geez.

Alright, TL!

Though I think you have some explaining to do... did you just YouTube'd Malmö FF or what?

(You should come and play here sometime, you know - lots of great venues here. Just come on over.)

Been there many times!  We've played both Debasers and Pink Flag in Malmö.
Also, my sister lives there, so...

Really? You learn something new every day! Well, you're welcome back any time.

EDIT: Pink Flag is no more, by the way. At least I don't think so. (Is my severe lack o' rock savvy showing yet?)

No, you're correct - it is, alas, no longer, but I know they still do shows in that space near the Folksparket or whatever it's called.

Oh yeah, that's the Malmö branch of Debaser. Within like two three blocks there are a number of buzzing venues - Debaser, Inkonst, KB, Jeriko. I live right there.

I really like the band [ingenting] who sing only in Swedish. Crimestick, how'd you feel about them? Or Vapnet, who were just recommended to me.

Rule of thumb: if they play guitars, I probably have no clue. :)

That said, I hear good things about Vapnet.
