Those Dancing Days
started as a side project, a way to while away the cold Stockholm winters while the five members were still in high school. But now, four years later, the quintet has become heir to the Swedish Pop crown, with an album full of instantly catchy songs and a globe-trotting tour schedule. While we hope that they bring their blend of ‘60s pop, surf rock, and soul back to the States soon, we now have a reason to visit them in their hometown: The band put together the ultimate Stockholm travel guide, courtesy of guitarist Rebecka Rolfart. From record store shopping to drinking in the park, they’ve just about covered it—just hope that your visit coincides with one of their gigs.Pet Sounds Record Store
Robert is so nice, and it’s fun to buy CDs.Hornstull Strand

It is Stockholm’s best place for hanging out, both inside and now at their outside restaurant, near the water. There are also great gigs [there] and they have a ping-pong table!
Eat fruit and berries in the park at Liljeholmen because it’s so beautiful.Snotty
It’s the best looking bar, plus pictures of all my idols are hung on the wall!Hell Stone
They are so nice and good in every way. It’s also Stockholm’s finest music store.Vitabergsparken
This park is everyone’s favorite, especially if you bring folkol (translates to people’s beer/light beer).Landet on Telefonplan

It’s a great place to see gigs, since it’s so small and cozy.Cosmonova
It’s an amphitheater that shows documentary films. We hope to see Lord of the Rings
there sometime, but science films are fun, too, if they’re about space, the ocean, or animals.Sodermalmstorg
It’s the place everyone waits [to meet up], it’s really nice, actually. It’s all water or trees.
