A round-up of things to do in Reykjavík this weekend, as prepared by your unusually suspicious editors.
- Poetry might be dead, but somebody didn’t get the memo. The cool cats of Nýhil will be reading, like, poetry, between acts at Grand rokk tonight. The usual suspects are playing: Mr. Silla & Mongoose, Pétur Ben, Reykjavik! and Skakkamanage. Rock and poetry. Who’d have thunk it?
- If Sigur rós and Glenn Miller had a child, it would probably be Benni Hemm “ehem” Hemm. He’s promoting Kayak, his spanking new album at Tjarnarbíó on Friday night. Get your tickets with the usual suspects.
- Also on Friday, check out usual suspects Matisse, Kokoschka and Renoir at the opening of le Regard Fauve at the National Art Gallery. It’s not unusual.
- On Saturday, take the car and drive to Skálholt for the usual advent choir concert at 14, 17 or 20.30, featuring festive music by lots of dead German guys. You know, Bach and the other usual suspects.
And hey — let’s be careful out there.
