September at the Studenterhuset

The University Post talked to Studenterhuset’s manager, Kristian Skjøth Madsen, about what to look forward to

It’s a warm Wednesday afternoon when I step through the doorway to Studenterhuset (eng. The Student House), a place with cheap coffee and live music that is the heart and soul of University of Copenhagen’s student life. I am here to track down Studenterhuset’s manager Kristian Skjøth Madsen to find out what’s hot on September’s calendar of events.

When asked about what’s exciting in September he is quick to reply: «The exciting thing in September is that we are open«.

In the effort to consolidate properties, the third floor of Studenterhuset is being converted into office space for university departments. Pesky safety regulations threatened to close the café, but the fire department was able to safeguard the area allowing Studenterhuset to stay open during renovations.

One hell of a party

The music schedule for September includes two release parties, beatbox nights, and a music festival. So what are the must sees for this month’s program?

»Definitely Rufus Spencer and the Better Looking Band. I think it’s going to be a great show,« Kristian says.

The singer/songwriter and his band took the rock NORD award at Nibe festival this summer with their folk inspired tunes and will be unplugged at Studenterhuset on September 11th.

Kristian’s second pick is Rusk festival 2009 which takes the stage on the 26th, ending the month on a good note. The concert is a showcase of up and coming talent from the music association Rusk and features bands such as The Telenovelas, Juno Bell and Circular Condition.

»It’s going to be one hell of a party,« says Kristian with a smile.

There is more to look forward to in September. Kristian is enthusiastic about Kilroy LIVE, an exposition designed to guide students in their travel and study abroad ambitions. The event is hosted by Kilroy, a company offering affordable travel related services to youth and students.

Kilroy is also sponsoring a contest to win an all expense paid trip for ten to Roskilde Festival.
