The Thursday Þing (pronounced thing) is the weekly event at one of my favourite Southsea venues, 101 Reykjavík. Every week you can expect stripped down acoustic sets, chats with an author, a poet or some other free-thinking type or the finest in Scandinavian cinema.
This week the team are treating us to the documentary film Heima which follows Sigur Rós during their 2006 tour of Iceland. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, the entire tour was filmed, and now provides a unique insight into one of the world’s shyest and least understood bands captured live in their natural habitat.
Sigur Rós are a slightly marmite group, you either love them or hate them. Unlike marmite I love Sigur Rós! With the weather starting to take a turn for the worse I would encourage you to head down, get cozy and enjoy the documentary along with one of their famous hot dogs and Icelandic beers.
