Warming Up- Iceland Airwaves 2010- Thursday
Have breakfast with my favorite riot grrls, Vicky at Prikið (10:00), they are an absolute joy:
If they bring their Marshall Amps you might need earplugs, but they are oh so worth it!
For a complete change of pace, the Nordic House has their acoustic afternoons starting today (13:00-17:00), all the Icelandic groups are great, and they even have acts from the Faroes and Greenland as well. It's worth the walk across Hringbraut and the heath, and the Nordic house is very cool, with a nice restaurant (Dill). Check it out on Friday and Saturday, too:

Hressó has a good late afternoon off-venue program as well- between here and the Nordic house you can see 6 hours of music before the night even starts!
Today there is a very special appearance from Steindír Anderson and Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson at 12 Tónar (17:30)- well worth standing in line for:
Night shows of note: Risið has the wonderful Pascal Pinon at 20:20:
