New gig in Stockholm

13 Sep

On September 30 we’re going to do a show at Bryggarsalen in Stockholm. It’s a benefit concert for Världens barn (a foundation working for the welfare of the world’s children), and the line-up also includes Bo Sundström from Bo Kaspers Orkester, Vera Vinter and Karin Starck. It’s 100 SEK to get in, and all the money goes straight to the foundation.

More info and tickets can be found here.

The cool thing about this venue is that it used to be a brewery. Here’s a photo from back in the day:

Thank You Turku!

We had a great time this weekend with our new-found Finnish friends. The Wonderminers and The Sugarrush put on good performances, and Vesa and Mikko were excellent club hosts. Somehow we just knew that a club called Flavor of the Month would be great! ;) We hope to be back soon again!

Here’s a little clip of us doing “Irreplaceable”, courtesy of Petri from The Wonderminers.

First show in Finland!

22 Aug

On September 3 we’re heading over to Turku, Finland to play at Flavor of the Month – a powerpop club at Pikku-Torre. It’s our first show outside of Sweden, so we’re pretty psyched. Joining us on this evening are Finnish powerpop bands The Sugarrush and The Wonderminers. The Sugarrush covered The Posies‘ “Chainsmoking in the USA” on Beautiful Escape: The Songs of The Posies Revisited, to which we also contributed our version of “Somehow Everything”.

More info about the show can be found here.

Flickr update – Basement gig photos

15 Mar

On Feb 12 we had a rehearsal studio farewell party. That is, we bid the rehearsal studio farewell, not the band :). We’d been rehearsing there in the basement since we started the band back in 2005, so we invited all our friends for some drinks and live music. We’ve uploaded some photos from that gig on Flickr. For those of you who saw us live during the first year of The Genuine Fakes’ existence, you’ll notice we’re wearing the original live outfits!

The Genuine Fakes play WayOutWest

On August 12 we’re playing at WayOutWest in Gothenburg. It’s one of Sweden’s biggest and best festivals and we’re thrilled to get the opportunity to play there. The venue is Parken, the time is 9-11 pm. We and three other bands will do 15 minute showcase sets. See you there!

The Genuine Fakes showcase gig tonight

We’re doing a showcase gig at Alcazar in Stockholm tonight. We go on stage at exactly 10 pm so don’t be late! Check the calendar for more information.

After this gig we’re going to take a break from live performances until fall when it’s time to promote the album. But we’re going to release another single before that, accompanied by a video. More news on that soon!

Just a reminder about the gig on Saturday with The Mommyheads. Also added to the roster are Even Adam. It’s going to be a great night!
