A round-up of things to do in Reykjavík for the rest of March, as prepared by your thankful-to-be-out-of-the-clutch-of-winter’s-evil-darkness editors.
- Five years between albums is just too long. Be there as dance music visionaries and all-around hipsters GusGus celebrate the release of their fourth album on the 24th at Nasa. You won’t be the coolest person in the crowd, but you will be the coolest cousin at the family reunion. Grandmas love GusGus.
- Not trendy enough for you? Leave mainland Europe, fly to Iceland, and watch films in French. The 7th annual (that’s right, 7th) French Film Festival runs until the end of the month at Háskólabío, and is part of the Pourquois Pas? Festival. Totally frais.
- Before you leave the island, grab a copy of Rafskinna, Iceland’s first DVD magazine. It’s got two hours of music videos and interviews in artsy packaging. Your friends will dismiss it as “so February,” but secretly wish you would die so they could inherit it. Beastly.
