Restaurant Review: 2112

Heard about this place for quite some time but tried it. A few weeks ago I finally got the opportunity. There are plenty of places that serves burgers and most of them are pretty

The Location. It’s on Magsinsgatan in down town Gothenburg and even inside the moat. Magasinsgatan is an are that holds a good amount of places that serves good food so only by being here raises the expectations.

The interior is nice but nothing that stands out as extraordinary. However I don’t really want that. It has a good bar where you can see that there is a good selection of beers, whiskey and even what seams to be better kinds of tequilas. Rock music in the speakers and music awards behind the bar. Thats because its owned by members of the classic Swedish rockband Inflames. Solid and honest interior.

What to drink. This is a not only good place to have a beer, its a great place to have a beer. I could easily go here just to have a great beer. The owners also have a brewery and their beer is on the menu here together with a wide selection of other good breweries. I had one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted here. And it where the Odd Island Brewery A Passage To New England that obviously is a New England IPA.

The food. What you’re most likely here for the burgers. I had the smoke on the water burger with regular fries and chili aioli. Good meet perfectly made great ingredients. This is the best in town. It’s among the best burgers I’ve tasted. The fries is just as I want then with good taste and perfectly crispy on the outside.

An Awesome Photoshoot

About a month ago I had my first real photoshoot as a photographer at John Dee nightclub in Oslo, Norway. Which is pretty awesome and I got 3 new gigs that I’m working on with friends but there is a little planning left.

However my first gig where a concert photography for my favorite party band in Oslo, Norway called Awesomesauce (Check them out here at Facebook or web page here). Honestly a great party band especially if you grew up during the 90’s or 00’s.

Got a call a few days before the concert where they asked me if I would like the work as their photographer during the concert. What’s pretty awesome is that I got almost complete access which where real cool to get that close to the band and the audience. So just hade a few days to prepare but it was awesome. Here is the result and please leave a comment below about which one is your favorite photo and what you think about them.

Towards Oslo

I’m on the bus heading towards Oslo and Norway for the weekend. But this time is a bit different. A few weeks ago I saw the final concert with the Swedish band Kent but this weekend it’s a new concert and a new artist. This time it’s to see the biggest artist in Sweden, Håkan Hellström. So me and G will go with a few Swedish friends that lives in Oslo and some Norwegian that will experience him for the first time. I’m super excited. 

Been thinking a lot about I best could share his music with you because all of it is in Swedish.

So hete you got a youtube video.

Year in Music

For the second time I tried Spotifys’ feature the Year in Music. Which is a great feature and I’m really impressed by it. Its a magnificent feature that summarize your year at Spotify which is very interesting.

I started the year of 2th of January by listening to Mitt Gullbergs Kaj Paradis (Live) med Håkan Hellström. Håkan Hellström is for you who not are Swedish a famous Swedish pop artist from Gothenburg that have a background in the Swedish indie pop scen and you could say that he made it widely spread in Sweden.

Then I apparently been mainly been listening to Håkan Hellström this year in combination with a few American artists. But a lot of pop in different genres but I also discovered a new genre thats called new mellow which I apparently am listening to quite a lot. What have you been listening to this year?

 

Picnic in the park festival

Yesterday where Sunday and as you might know me and G visited the picnic in the park festival with artists as Marit Larsen who I really liked. A new Norwegian country band named Nothern Belle which very skilled musicians. Then we also watched artists as Modeat Mouse, James Blake and Jose Gonzales to mention a few.

But not only the music where good and interesting. Also the food where great. A lot of food trucks that we saw and tried pulled pork burgers, tacos and burritos which all tasted great.

Here are some pictures from yesterday.

   
       

A new music project

Once again I’ve been involved in a music related project with its foundation in Sweden. The project is still under development but there will be a more public release of it some time during this summer. At least that that the plan right now. I’m involved in the photography and the website part of the project and feel super excited about this. I love having projects to work with  and this seams very interesting and I believe strongly in this project. I will keep you posted more about it when we are getting closer.

The reason to why I’m writing about this now is that today I’ve been working with the project and had a first meeting with the founder and my dear friend Alexander. Feels exciting. 

  

Music, meeting and summer

Another varm and sunny has in Oslo today and I think summer has arrived for real now. As I’ve waited for this moment. Last night I sat out late on the balcony again and just enjoyed the summer air. Its strange how you all year wait for these magical summer months. 

I just had a board meeting which I’m as always where good and interesting, as always a lot to discuss. And after the meeting I had some BBQ on the balcony and listed to Mark Knopfler that was playing live in the nearby park. And all of this to a beautiful sunset. 

Life is good!

  

Thinking about Gothenburg

From time to time I get to thinking about Gothenburg and a few days ago where one fo those day and when I found this song on youtube.

The songs name is Glenntown. And in In Sweden there is a saying that everyone from Gothenburg is called Glenn. This is after the soccer team IFK Göteborg had 4 players on the team called Glenn and at least two of them where rather successful also outside of Sweden. But mainly I thought the song where catchy. Then the song is also a tribute to that team.

Started to watch Nashville

Today I started to watch the tv serie together with G. And so far it’s fine even if I’m not fully convinced yet. But like music and feeling inspired to write some country music. Like writing music but it was a long time since last time I wrote anything last time. So will see if this sets of something.

Song writing

Last night where the first night that I had the apartment to my self here in Oslo in a long time. So I took up music and played some guitar and started to work on some songs. Worked some on two songs that are probably 10-15 years old and I realize that my influences has changed quite a lot since then. But then I started to write on a new one which where interesting and recorded a little bit of a demo with the electric guitar and the iRig equipment on the iPad. I am not the one to judge the quality of my music but at least it was a lot of fun to be writing again.
