Solstafir playing free Brooklyn Brewery show during Taste of Iceland this week


Taste of Iceland returns to NYC this week, from September 11-15, with a five-day festival highlighting “the very best of Iceland’s culture, showcasing the nation’s cuisine, music, literature, and film with a variety of events throughout the city.”

One of those events is a somewhat rare NYC show from Icelandic blackened post-metal band Solstafir, which happens at Brooklyn Brewery on Saturday (9/14) as part of an event called Reykjavik Calling. The show also has “mesmerizing all-girl synth-punk trio” Kæland Mikla. It starts at 9 PM and it’s totally free (no RSVP required), but they recommend showing up early. More info here.

Also happening in conjunction with Taste of Iceland is the North American premiere of Johann Johannsson‘s “Virðulegu Forsetar” at Basilica Soundscape in Hudson, NY on Friday (9/13). Full Basilica Soundscape lineup and tickets here; more info on the Johan Johannsson premiere here.

You can see the full Taste of Iceland schedule with more info on each event here.

As for Solstafir, they also play Iceland Airwaves and they’re doing a short 10th anniversary tour for their 2009 album Kold in Europe in December.
