Gefle Metal Festival 2017

I’m thinking about adding Gefle Metal Festival 17 to my summer itinerary. I went to the Getaway Rock Festival back in 2011 at this same location.

Amon Amarth is headlining. If I go, this will be my fourth time seeing them. Other bands include Arch Enemy, who I haven’t seen with their new singer, Death Angel, Nervosa, and Sanctuary, who I haven’t seen in 27 years!

Half a year has passed since last year’s Copenhell. Fond memories are still burning bright.

Goal!

This past summer I went to my third professional soccer match. All three were in Copenhagen. All three were blowouts in favor of the home team. All three were at a mostly empty Parken Stadium.

I don’t really understand how European soccer works, but F.C. Copenhagen won the Danish Superliga and the Danish Cup in the prior year and the Danish Superliga again before I saw this game. Maybe those games are better attended.

By the time I’m in Denmark in the middle of summer things have moved on to the UEFA Europa League, in which FCK dominates in the early rounds and gets crushed in later rounds. I’m only there for the early rounds. On this night, FCK beat the Crusaders F.C. (Belfast, Ireland) 6-0.

St. Paul’s Church, Copenhagen

Nyboder's Church

I was killing time one lovely afternoon in Copenhagen this past summer when I stumbled upon this neighborhood for the first time. I think I will do more random exploring of neighborhoods in Copenhagen next summer.

Anyway, this neighborhood is featured in the recent movie, The Danish Girl. I’m not sure if this church (Sankt Pauls Kirke) makes an appearance in the film or not. I’ll post a photo or two of the buildings that are in the movie soon.

Happy birthday, Nita Strauss!

One of the funnest performances I had the pleasure of witnessing in 2016 was Iron Angel from Germany. I wasn’t that familiar with them before the show but have enjoyed their music since. It always brings a smile to my face after having seen them live. As far as I know, they’ve never played in the USA.
