Introducing Sacred-Awe.com

It is with great pleasure that I introduce the website of one of my best-mates, Mischa Nielsen.

Mulling over life’s complexities at Eataly, Ilum, central Copenhagen

Mischa and I met 7 odd years ago at Roskilde University, at the start of our bachelor studies. From the off, it was clear that we had many common interests, such as partying constantly and playing music. Over the years, we travelled to 7 different countries together, along with our good friend, Edoardo Bottalico, growing from enterprising pups to young men in the process.

As bilingual kids in Danish society, Mischa and I share some of the same views about growing up in international environments and we both have an equally eclectic taste in music. His travails and love of food and wine have led him down the somelier route and i’ve wound up in content marketing but our passion for writing still unites us.

After toying with the prospect for a while, Mischa ha finally got his website up and running. Sacred-awe.com is a site that combines his favourite pastimes; writing, music and wine, inspired by Zorba The Greek no less.  Check it out after the jump!

Rockfreaks.net St Paty’s fest to paint the town green

Original article published for The Local, available here:

Rockfreaks.net are a group of driven music fans who’ve taken the time and effort to build turn their passion for rock music into a website containing concert reviews of Danish gigs, interviews with musicians and music opinions that reach out to a global audience.

One of the fixtures on their calendar is an annual St Patrick’s Day celebration, held each March in commemoration of the death of Ireland’s most-recognized patron saint.

On Saturday, the webzine will be hosting a St Patty’s bash at Nørrebro’s legendary Stengade venue, a location that has seen its fair share of flamboyant, rafter-raising gatherings. With the memories of last year’s party still lingering (the bar record was smashed with some aplomb), 2015 is on course to be another success.

In keeping with the Irish spirit, the venue will be lavishly adorned with memorabilia in the form of shamrocks, Irish aesthetics, and yes, you guessed it, perhaps even the odd leprechaun. There will also be plenty of green beer for thirsty souls.

Musically, the highlights of the evening include Rovers Ahead, a raucous mob centred around Dublin-born vocalist Nathan Corcoran and his deafening tales of debauchery and mischief. Another equally exciting prospect, Larica, look set to add musical dimension to the proceedings, with their unique orchestral ska and its mesmeric qualities that have been proven in numerous underground venues from Christiania’s Operaen to Ungdomshuset.

The wildcard entry of the evening is a young melodic punk group from Freiburg who go by the name of The Deadnotes and whose qualities as a live outfit have been widely praised in music circles.

The festivities get underway at 8pm and free beer will be served to the early arrivals.

Original article written for The Local Denmark, available here:

Ahh, is there anything more anticipated than the coming of spring? While March is finally here, we’ve still got a long way to go until Denmark’s strong summer music season begins – which this year is looking better than ever.
But fear not, there are plenty of great (and, thankfully, indoor) concerts to enjoy this month. While March is lacking a bit when it comes to big-name international acts, it offers everything from a world-class breakdance battle to a St Patrick’s rock extravanganza.
