The House Festival – I Think You’re Awesome Special Edition (DK)

Americana, folk, indie og jazz



Få bands har gjort sig mere bemærket på den danske jazzhimmel de sidste par år end I Think You're Awesome.



Med deres forfriskende blanding af americana, folk, indie og jazz har de spillet udsolgte koncerter i hele landet, været nomineret til DMA Jazz, vundet Jazznytprisen i 2016 og er blevet spillet massivt på P8 Jazz. Bandet tordnede for alvor ind i den danske jazzbevidsthed med deres liveoptræden til P8 Jazz Alive i DR KoncertHuset i marts 2017.



I Think You're Awesome fortæller instrumentale historier om fodbold, bøger, ungdom, kærlighed, ængstelighed og venskab.



I den seneste tid har bandet eksperimenteret med et mindre og mere intimt setup, hvor numrene er arrangeret for bas, cello, saxofon, klaver og sang. Til denne pop-up-koncert kan man opleve denne helt særlige udgave af I Think You're Awesome.



The House er en ny festival i Aarhus, der foregår i en gammel, rå værkstedsbygning, som tidligere var en smedje til byens gasværk. Her præsenteres en række musikere, som deltager på baggrund af deres musikalske idéer og bedrifter snarere end genre. En del af de opførte værker vil være komponerede, andre improviserede. Håbet er at kunne bidrage til at lade genrer og kunstarter inspirere hinanden.




Americana, folk, indie, and jazz



Few bands have received more attention on the Danish jazz sky in the last few years than I Think You’re Awesome.



With their refreshing mix of Americana, folk, indie, and jazz, they have sold out shows throughout the country, been nominated for a DMA Jazz, Won the 2016 Jazzprisen, and have been played extensively on P8 Jazz. The band broke through to the danish jazz consciousness with the live performance at P8 Jazz Alive in DR KoncertHuset in March, 2017.



I Think You’re Awesome tell instrumental tales of soccer, books, youth, love, anxiety, and friendship.



Most recently, the band has been experimenting with a smaller and more intimate set-up, where their tunes have been arranged for bass, cello, saxophone, piano, and vocals. For this concert, I Think You’re Awesome will be performing in this special constellation.



The House is a new festival in Aarhus that takes place in an old, rustical workshop that used to be a smithy in the town’s gasworks. Here, there will be a lineup of musicians who have been featured based on their musical ideas and accomplishments rather than their genre. Some of the tunes will be composed and others improvised. The idea is to allow genres and art forms to inspire each other.


Line-up

Christian Vuust (sax, cl), Christian Balvig (p), Maria Isabel Edlund (vc). Jens Mikkel (b, voc)
