Band of Horses acoustic gig

Not too shabby Tuesday night entertainment in Trondheim tonight, as Band of Horses did a surprise acoustic gig at Byscenen.

Performing without bass and drums, the band charmed their way through a 70 minute long set, including the outstanding “The Funeral”, “No One’s Gonna Love You” and “Is There A Ghost”.

Viewpoint Blomsterbrua

The newest bridge over Nidelven is Verftsbrua (Shipyard Bridge) or Bomsterbrua (Flower Bridge), as it is called colloquially. It connects Brattøra and Nedre Elvehavn, is 125 meters long and has a great view of Nidelven, Trondheims blue vein.

This picture is taken with my mobile camera.


Viewpoint Ladehammeren

Last weekend I was at Ladehammeren, which is one of Trondheims open air areas for the public 71 meters above sea level. If you visit Trondheim you should definitely stop by. It offers a great view of the city and its fjord, and also an amazing sculpture by the German sculptor Rolf Schaffner.

Highasakite thriving as live act

On June 3 I had the chance to see Highasakite play a magnificent concert at Studentersamfundet in Trondheim.

If you are one of the lucky ones to attend Glastonbury,Roskilde, Hurricane Festival or any of the other gigs on their busy summer schedule, you really have something to look forward to. I’ve seen them regularly since their debut and have never seen them perform this well before, both musically and in terms of the stage performance.

Ingrid Helene Håvik is really flourishing as a front figure for the band, and seems to really enjoy singing the new material from the record “Camp Echo” which I think has some great songs, “Golden Ticket” being my personal favorite.

Fortunately I had my Sony DSC-RX100 Mark III with me, so I caught some snapshots during their concert here in Trondheim.

Autumn in June

We often joke about Trondheim being the city where you can experience four seasons in one day.

On Monday afternoon I visited a cafe with colleagues. Because of the warm weather, we decided to sit in the backyard. Suddenly leafs started flying everywhere, according to one of my co-workers leafs from hazel trees. An autumn experience three days before Midsummer!

In the surroundings of the backyard at Cafe Ni Muser it made for a beautiful sight which I tried to capture with my mobile camera. The next time I visit that backyard I’m bringing a proper camera!
