PostSubject: Go visit Umeň in Sweden!   Tue Jan 14, 2014 4:33 pm

The city of Umeň in Sweden is one of this year's European Capitals of Culture (the other one is Riga in Latvia). For me Umeň is a very important place, because many bands that I was listening to as a teenager were from Umeň where there is not much else to do than to form a band (there is even a genre called Umeň hardcore); they basically brought me up and educated me, especially Refused and The (International) Noise Conspiracy. You probably know that Against Me!'s current bass player Inge Johansson is from Umeň, too.

As European Capital of Culture Umeň has a lot to offer in 2014. And the great thing about Umeň in 2014, they haven't forgotten about their hardcore and punk history. As a result you can find punk concerts and other related events in the program. There is, for example, the exhibition Umeň ľ The European Capital of Hardcore 1989-2000 in the The Archive of Umeň Hardcore, or a recomposed orchestral version of Refused's The Shape of Punk to Come by the NorrlandsOperan, the local opera company.

So if you ever wanted to find out where Against Me!'s newest member comes from, visit Europe in 2014, or transcend your restricted "East Coast"/"West Coast"-ways of thinking,

Go visit Umeň in Sweden!

(I will.)

Mom's right, but Sweden is the very best part of Europe: beautiful people, good music and the most hilarious naval accident in history of seafaring. Just don't go anywhere else.

Finland is even better, apparently. Every time we Dutch people think we're the best at anything in Europe, it's always Finland pipping us to the first place.

Well, we Finns have to deal with all those pesky foreign names with like 4 consonants in a row! How are you supposed to pronounce that? (More vowels please!)
