Eastertime in Oslo

We were in Oslo during Easter. The idea originated from an advertisement of Inferno Festival, which told that one of the best bands, Arcturus, played there. I had not seen the band before, but the trip was well worth it. Of course, the attandance to the festival expanded into a short holiday.

Here is a quick summary:

  • The show of Arcturus gained a place in my "top3 shows ever" list. The show was even more theatrical than the music. When playing The Chaos Path, there were about 20 actors on stage performing different circus-like things, which fitted the music perfectly. The Rockefeller Music Hall, where the festival was held is quite like Tavastia Klubi, but bigger and with three-level auditorium.
  • No smoking allowed in a club is a great idea, hopefully the ban will come effective in Finland, too
  • The Norweigian hotel breakfasts are obscene (in a gluttonious way)
  • Oslo has a poshy center with gaudy glass buildings and tactless shopping centers and that's where everything and everyone are. Then there are a few quieter shopping streets, and the rest lies in quietude.
  • I would like to live in Grünerløkka
