Venue of the month: Alice

With concerts all year, every day of the week in the heart of Nørrebro, ALICE is a must and important stop for the curios concert-goer.
ALICE can best be described as Copenhagen’s powerhouse for adventurous music and is powered by the people and forces behind the former venues Global and Jazzhouse.
With a capacity of 250 people, ALICE is presenting a bold and high quality program of global roots, jazz/improv, electronic music, sonic experiments and much more.DSC06501ALICE is a non-profit venue in large run by passionate volunteers. It’s the volunteers who are preparing the venue before the shows, taking concert photos and during the shows you’ll also meet volunteers in the bar and wardrobe.

Circuit des Yeux.

The American musician Haley Fohr – aka Circuit des Yeux – is known for her intense performance, her powerful voice and her haunting songs. Last year she gave a sold out show at ALICE with her band, but this time she will perform in a stripped down solo version. People who have heard her solo-shows at Jazzhouse will know that this is a great opportunity to experience her incredible voice, carrying associations to such performers as Diamanda Galás, Patty Waters and Odetta, in the rawest form.

Carla dal Forno (AUS) – October 22 – 140 kroner

Carla dal Forno.

Carla dal Forno is an Australian songwriter navigating the in between zones of post-punk, industrial, narcotic dub and dream pop. She just put out a new record and we invited her again after she played a really nice show at ALICE last year. Live she performs as a duo with multi-instrumentalist and electronic musician Mark Smith. Absolutely recommendable.

Nihiloxica (UGA) – October 30 – 140 kroner

The group comes from the hyped Ugandan label Nyege Nyege and is a collaboration between Spooky-J, pq and Nilotica Cultural Ensemble. Nihiloxica creates a dark take on traditional Bugandan drumming by mixing African traditions with techno sensibilities. One of the great acts at Roskilde 2018 and a must if you like Sounds of Sisso, KOKOKO! etc.
