Fabulous Friday- Iceland Airwaves 2010
Lots and lots of good off-venue stuff this afternoon. Eymundsson's (the one by the jail) has Pascal Pinon (17:15) while Máls og Menningar has good stuff all afternoon, likewise the downtown hostel. Nordic House and Hressó are good bets as well.
The evening also has an embarrassment of riches.
The great folk-rock band Hraun starts a solid night of music at Tjarnarbíó at 19:00:
Even the foreign acts (Murder 19:50, Gablé 21:30, Angel Deradoorian 22:30)) look good, add in with the sensational Útidúr and you might not have to go anywhere else, but if you do the teen-age DJ wunderkinds Captain Fufanu are at Apotekið (21:50):
while back at Tjarnarbió DJ Margeir and his Sinfó go on at 23:30 (a must-see mix of classical and techno!):
Faktory has a strong after-midnight set, including Sudden Weather Change and thrashers Æla:
For those wanting a little calmer evening, Risið has the Trúbatrixur night with an all female lineup of folk and pop acts while Iðno's line up also looks to be very good, including Nóra at 20:50 and Nive Nielsen and her Deer Children from Greenland!
Surf's up! when the band Bárujárn (featuring a theremin!) is at Amsterdam at 01:10:
Best day of the festival, if you can't find good music today, and there is plenty more great music I haven't listed, you aren't trying.
