SONJA SKIBDAHL + FUNKED UP

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.

MALMÖ,YOU DID IT AGAIN…

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!

More pictures of this gig are available on the Emues flickr page or on our Facebook Fan Page. Check it out!
