-     16th November at 20:00 –Trine Rine Strand  Band @ kulturhuset

Trine Strand is a folk singer, lyricist and composer. She has repeatedly been described as an artist with a warm voice and intimate lyrics. Northern Norway is given central prominence in Trine Strand songs. She describes the mountains, the light, and the people of the North in such a warm and magical way that it must be experienced.

-    21st November at 22:00 – Mayhem @ Driv

Many have been waiting for a proper metal band at the student house in Tromsø. Now, none other than Mayhem are visiting. This year, they released new music for the first time in seven years.  The album “Esoteric Warfare” reinforces their position in the music world!

A “solid album” according to many reviewers. Few other bands have a history as marked by drama and mystery as Mayhem, and few have been able to maintain their position as pioneers of the genre. The band has been going for 30 years, so this will be an experience you should have, whether you like metal or simply want to catch up on music history.

-  21. November – 13. Desember – 21. Nov. kl 18:00 deretter tirsdag – fredag 19:00, lørdag 18:00 – Blodig Alvor @ Hålogaland Teater

I suksesskomedien «Blodig alvor» vil alle kjenne seg igjen og dra gjenkjennende på smilebåndet. Det starter sivilisert over et kakestykke og utvikler seg til et oppgjør med oppkast, kunstbøker og en hamster.

Når foreldrene til guttene møtes er de høflige og vil skape et godt miljø preget av forsoning. Men denne høfligheten slår raskt sprekker og ganske snart blir vi sittende og lure på hvem som egentlig oppfører seg mest barnslig. Med humor, snert og gjenkjennelse ser vi hvordan vi voksne kan være villige til å ofre både etikk og moral for å vinne en diskusjon.

-  23. November kl. 18:00 – Riksteatret Presenterer Hang og Grete @ Kulturhuset

Husker du Brødrene Grimms akkurat passe skumle eventyr om Hans og Grete som går seg vill i skogen og blir tatt til fange av den onde heksa? Denne høsten kan du glede deg til å oppleve det klassiske eventyret fortalt som en fantasifull barneforestilling spekket med musikk og oppfinnsom fortellerglede. Bli med Hans og Grete på deres ferd gjennom skogen og følg dem til pepperkakehuset, der verdens slemmeste heks bor. Kan du hjelpe dem med å finne veien hjem til pappa?

-  28th November at 22:00 – Lindstrøm Clubnight @ Driv
