City Beat: Peggy Sue and a trio named Horse and Sea Lion

Do you sometimes, like me, find Gothenburg dead as a ghost town when you wander the streets on a week night? Then Mitt Andra Hem- directly translated My second home- is the place to be. This Thursday they invite you to an intimate concert with the Gothenburg indie bands Peggy Sue and a trio named Horse, and Sea Lion.

I was meeting a friend for a coffee, a friend who I had not seen for over a year. We met up in Mitt andra hem, an intimate and cosy café/bar in Linnéstaden. After only some sentences our conversation was disrupted by an improvisation theater group that was going to make a performance on the small stage in the end of the intimate little place. Even though this was not really what we had imagined when we entered the bar, with one year of love stories, future plans and important happenings to exchange, the theater group Rattle embellished our night with their funny and clever improvisation theater. This is why I adore Mitt Andra Hem: unexpected, uncommon happenings on a Thuesday night!

Andra Långgatan, where Mitt andra hem is situated, used to be the “porn street” of Gothenburg, filled with sex shops and strip clubs. What you find here nowadays is a mix of sub cultures. Even though this might be about to change once again, with several alternative bars and stores are closing down, Andra Långgatan covers a great diversity of second hand stores, record stores, goth stores, cool bars, retro funisher store and restaurants with food from different parts of the world. When you enter Mitt andra hem a familiar feeling is coming over you right away. With a white and black chequered floor, umbrellas covering the cieling, soft light, charmy and comfortable armchairs in the corner of the room and not to forget- the creative spirit carcaterizing Mitt andra hem, you must love this place!

Mitt andra hem has an open scene for local and unsigned musicians. Here you can also find improvisation theater, stand up comedy and video game sessions. This Thursday the stage will be reserved for the two bands Peggy Sue and a trio namned Horse and Sea Lion. Have a beer, glass of wine, coffee or hot chocolat and enjoy the cosy and familiar athmosphere in Mitt Andra Hem. Yet another plus is the free entrence!
