Kashmir

Store Vega, Cph V; Sun March 2, 20:00; 250kr

Firmly embedded in the folkloric history of rock music in Denmark, Kashmir were originally called Nirvana back in 1991 when they started performing but had to change their name when Kurt Kobain & co started hitting home runs in their musical career. Having collaborated with David Bowie and departed legend Lou Reed, Kashmir are an educational experience that you need to see. With last year’s seventh studio album release, EAR, in their arsenal, expect a seasoned, mature performance that will leave you impressed. (Allan Mutuku-Kortbæk)

The Show – Trbute to ABBA

Falconer Salen, Frederiksberg; Sat March 1, 20:00; 395-470kr

Voulez-vous, dancing queens and super troupas? After all, it has been 40 years since ABBA rocketed onto the international music scene at the Eurovision Song Contest with their winning song ‘Waterloo’. This box-office smash, celebrating their canon, has impressed audiences and critics alike, winning the Best Show award at the Limelights Awards in 2010. The show charts the story of the group from their formation in Sweden through their glory years. Tight flares and excessive hairspray are guaranteed … and that’s just the men. (Philip Tees)
