People say there’s always a first time for everything.
With EMUES, last week, there was a first time for 2 things: the first EXPIRED gig and the first SOLD OUT gig.
The suggestion was up to see Crying Day Care Choir and Frantic Sunday and the amazing people at Rockfoto got onboard and would also put up an awesome exhibition together with the gig, all at STPLN.
Tomas, from Frantic Sunday, invited everybody to get together and make it happen and by the deadline, unfortunately, not enough tickets got sold. Because of that, there will be no gig for them or exhibtion.
EMUES has empowered about 500 people to make over 8 concerts happen for more than 21 bands in the last 5 months. There was more live music available, in more places, to more fans who wanted to see their favorite artist live in their town. All this is only possible because of YOU!

Friday, April 27th, Malmö: Another amazing music night at STPLN with the crowdfunded concept The Night Starts Here.
A gig was suggested for Sonja Skibdahl and Funked Up and over 20 of their fans got together to make it happen. The result? A fun night in the always cozy atmosphere with a lot of great music.
Anna Tenfält and Josefine Trilhamn welcomed the crowd and kept music playing at all times, with great indie pop beats.
On stage, Sonja Skibdahl‘s music transcended the lyrics: between Swedish and Finish, it was a personal sound that could speak to our hearts. An intimate start followed by her witty guitar and warm personality.
On a bit different pace, Funked Up took the stage and it was loud and good: groovy music that got everybody on their feet and wishing for more! There was crazy energy on stage on a sound that felt much more mature than their look. Oh yes: they know how to set the tone for a party.
Meet Frantic Sunday: a Swedish band from Uppsala formed in 2008 by four people with a common aim. Stay Frantic.
The band rehearsed together for the first time the last Sunday of September 2008. Since then, over 80 gigs in the U.S., Norway and Sweden has been played, among them the Peace and Love festival, Debaser Medis and Debaser Malmö. The band has been commended by critics and audiences alike, both for the live shows and the recordings.
The past year indie four-piece Frantic Sunday rotated on MTV and Swedish national radio channel P3, and played at one of Sweden’s biggest festivals, Way Out West.
Now they’re back with a new single, “Things We Do” and about to kick off their Summer Tour!
And because they’re on Emues, you can suggest a gig for them!
Enjoy the new single and make sure to bring them to a venue next to you.
Is this a trend coming up? It seems that in Malmö, music lovers have adopted Emues concept and crowd suggested gigs are happening more and more often.
This time, the suggested bands were Tim the Lion Tamer and Stars in Coma, who played at STPLN on the 3rd edition of The Night Starts Here. Another cozy Friday night pre-party at STPLN with people gathering to enjoy live music. Anna Tenfält took care of the music in between as the DJ of the night.
First off on stage was Tim the Lion Tamer and we have 1 word for his music: smooth. That voice is just the type of voice that one can’t get enough of. Prior to the gig, Tim went on his Facebook Fan Page with a fun voting for which song he should cover live and the most voted was Flume, by Bon Iver, which sounded flawless in his interpretation. He also sang a few of the other suggested covers, which the crowd appreciated. Beautiful voice and melody. It was the perfect start for that night… Stars in Coma took the stage next with their unpredictable pop. You thought you knew, but you had no idea: they took the crowd by surprise with their hyper beats, getting everybody to laugh and move their feet in a very uptempo performance. They definitely had the outfit and the performance to be remembered!

Our super active intern, Kristofer Nilsson, is always out and about, checking out what Malmö has to offer when it comes to culture, more so, the music scene. Here’s what he has to share with us…
Malmö is a city of constant activity. If you have a little time and some money to spare. One can, without exaggeration, attend at least one event every day, all year round.
Last week, I decided to visit four events, three of them concerts.
Inkonst offered on Tuesday a free concert by the southern interior city prides Dalaplan. This is the band with The Sonics-inspired garage riffs offer tones that makes the firm decision to sing along, clap, and although it was Tuesday, dance a little drop.
On Thursday, I went to Babel and Kick-Start to see more interesting, local, new talent. The
artists that were on the scene for this evening: Libra, who celebrated her new release by delivering goa electronic tones. For those of you
who like siblings Dreijers stuff, check out Libra. Idle Hands did it again. He enthralled the audience through its beautifully fragile voice and
big band The Devil’s Play Things did exactly what to do when you have cello, two banjo,
electric guitar, pedal steel, bass, drums, triangle and marackas. The Culture In Memoriam burning of his songs with great panache. It was great to see
them when I have not done it before. Turning back again to a look-a-like-particular-band-
check-in-theese. If you like Johnossi, peek into TCIM!
Saturday night was a night of intimacy and high rock and roll tones. I was on the
Mässingshornet, Kirsebergs gem, to see when the Demobanken club Hemma Hos moved
the living room a few hundred meters to the east than we are accustomed. On stage stood Wittsell III and Fracture, two very promising band from southwest Skåne, which played to an
audience that was very touched. Other people were obviously concerned – the owner who
said that Hemma Hos had saved his sales and neighbors who complained about the high
