SOPA Newsletter # 02 - December 20, 2006: gigs, future plans and new
::::::::::::::: SOUND OF PERPETUAL ASTONISHMENT :::::::::::::::
Welcome to the second SOPA Newsletter. Just about the right time to wish
you all a merry x-mas and a happy new year!
These last couple of months of 2006 have been spent finetuning the first
SOPA releases and getting the artwork done. They should be available in
early January of 2007. Other release shoul follow shortly after. And even
more great music - not yet on the website - is on its way. Yes, oh yes!
But even before releasing anything it is safe to say that the SOPA artists
themselves have been active. MARZIPAN MARZIPAN has been doing lots of
live shows in Germany and Italy. And NILS GRÖNDAHL has been touring
extensively with his band UNDER BYEN in Canada, USA, Europe and Denmark.
I LIKE THIS WIND supported UNDER BYEN in Brussels, Belgium, reportedly
a fantastic gig with an attentive crowd. Later she did a small intimate
gig at Katapult in Aarhus, Denmark, and here CAPT. DAYDREAM had the pleasure
of trying to be a dj. GIRLS LOVE RALLIE debuted with backing band at Fabriken
in Aarhus. A most enjoyable evening. And DELAY LAMA supplied great tunes
for a perpect summery Sunday afternoon at their debut at Månefiskeren
in Christiania, Copenhagen.
A.K.HANSN is still working on his coming cd. At the same time he has been
setting up weekly shows with a host of different artists at Katapult in
Aarhus. He and his friends are doing it under the name WEAK BLACK HEARTS.
You can check out their program at www.myspace.com/weakblackhearts. Stay
tuned for more fun there in 2007!
I LIKE THIS WIND also started doing a page on MySpace: www.myspace.com/ilikethiswind.
Still a work in progress, she says. :-)
SOPA revamped the website just recently. So go to www.sopa.dk and have
a look. A new feature there: I LIKE THIS WIND and CAPT. DAYDREAM at Katapult.
And soon GIRLS LOVE RALLIE will follow with pictures from Fabriken.
There's also a SOPAblog now. Feel free to comment. There's a link on the
website. Or go directly via http://blog.sopa.dk.
MARZIPAN MARZIPAN and 9 have a few gigs coming up very soon. Be sure to
