I’m ashamed to say that, as much time as I’ve spent playing geography games on Sporcle, I had never once heard of Gothenburg until watching this video.

Gothenburg is the second-largest city in Sweden, and it apparently has awesome music. I know about Gothenburg now because of the video series New Music Cities. This incredible series has covered New York, London, and Tokyo so far, and decided to jump to a much smaller, lesser-known city that, as it turns out, still has an amazing music scene.

The video takes you on a musical tour by speaking to a few bands about the city, its culture, and the music scene while their music plays. Kudos to New Music Cities for doing this, and here’s to hoping they eventually get around to every city on the planet.
