Pamper Monday - The Sound of Music

Mondays here on the blog are me days. Not about little old me. Oh, okay then, maybe just a teeny bit! ;) More about the things I can do just for me to recharge my batteries. Creative ways to be nice to myself! :)

Music is my world. The one thing that can change my mood in a heartbeat. Or a single guitar riff ;) And if films should be seen on the big screen, then music should be experienced live. Last weekend DH and I went to see the Swedish rock giants, Kent. And I'm still high, 10 days later! :) This week I've got not one but two (count 'em) gigs to look forward to...

Thursday night I'm taking a trip down a 1990s memory lane with Heaven 17, those awfully clever boys from Sheffield, on their Penthouse and Pavement Live tour. And sometimes they add in a little number by the Human League too, so fingers crossed! :)


Friday night is going to be a Copenhagen classic. Denmark's finest punk rock band Magtens Korridorer (which means The Corridors of Power). Click on the link and then move your mouse over those handsome boys, one by one - you won't be disappointed! ;) My sweetie friend Rasmus is their guitarist.


They're playing - as always - at my favourite, favourite Copenhagen concert venue, VEGA. Built in the 1950s, it was named Folkets Hus (People's House) and was a kind of headquarters for the unions. Today it's a listed building and still s-u-p-r-e-m-e-l-y stylish. Mahogany wooden floors, the ubiquitous Danish design lamps, elegant staircases (that don't always lead where you think - or maybe that's too many G+Ts on my behalf?), woodpanelled walls, snug bars. Sometimes I think I should have a beehive hairdo to fit in with the glamorous feeling of the place. If you're interested in architecture or style there are lots of great photos of the various rooms here. All in all, it's going to be a great night. By the way, if you want to come along to Magtens K on Friday, you're too late. It's a sell out. Yay! :)

Have you had a little bit of what you fancy recently? Rock, theatre, stand-up comedy? Then maybe it's about time you treated yourself. Just remember to do the Flylady thing and book your tickets well in advance...

Have a marvelous Monday! :)
