Any Swedish music fan worth their salt has heard of Debaser Medis in central Södermalm. It’s actually part of a larger group of venues also including Debaser Slussen and Debaser Strand, but Medis has a rock slant the other two lack, putting on shows by groups such as post-rock band Godspeed You! Black Emperor or American rock band Imagine Dragons. There are also smaller, local bands performing, and most of their gigs are free before nine or 10:00 p.m. — a great way to discover new music. The venue itself is quite big, with several stages and bars spread over two floors; there’s even a small cinema on the second floor.
