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!

And what a great night it was: tables, couches and candles were in place to set a cozy atmosphere to all who came to enjoy good music and kick off their pre-party with us this last Friday here in Malmö.
They came in with their own drinks and gathered with friends to the sound of Andrea Arvidsson (Doc Lounge/Gaffa/Rockfoto) and Elisabeth Östin (Psychedelic Flu), who welcomed everybody with the most inspiring female voices on folk-rock, pop and punk!
First on stage was Rovi, dressed in red, behind her keyboard, singing her beautiful songs along with Mattis, who would perform next. It was a warming and intimate performance, getting the audience to dive into her lyrics and melody along with her.
Mattis took on the stage next and we could all feel her strong presence: she sang and entertained the audience with good music and good stories, which she shared in between her songs. She got everybody laughing and engaged during her whole performance!
Linnea Jonsson was closing the night with her magic guitar and voice. Beautiful songs empowered with her acoustic guitar solos that got everybody dreaming away.
The crew at STPLN were amazing, thinking through each detail to make the night just perfect!
We’d like to thank everybody involved. We’re looking forward for the upcoming editions of The Night Starts Here at STPLN.
