Every Wednesday we will be publishing a lineup of live music in Buenos Aires, covering the various musical acts we think are most worth seeing in a given week. Mirroring the local scene, our coverage tends to skew more towards indie, electronic, folk, and experimental, but we try to cover as many different genres as possible. As a rule we try to champion lesser-known acts and avoid amiguismo, which is easy because we’re not from here and don’t have wealthy, well-connected friends.*
Check out the playlist on the right to get a taste of the artists featured in this week’s agenda (at least the ones we could find on Spotify). And don’t forget to follow La La Lista on Spotify for our weekly agenda picks, Best Of playlists, and much more.
*Shout-out to our non-connected, super broke friends. We love you but also kind of wish you could get us backstage at Personal Fest. Evy really wants to meet Stuart Murdoch.
