Welcome back to La Lista! Another week, another generous serving of live shows in the city of Buenos Aires. And considering how chilly it’s gotten the last few days, we’re thinking it’s probably a good idea to huddle close around the comforting warmth of stage lights, amplifiers, and, uh, musicians.
We really have it all this week. We’re talking chiptune. We’re talking punk rock. We’re talking folky acoustic stuff. We’re talking boppy electronic stuff. We’re talking funky danceable stuff. We’re talking nordic death metal. We’re talking karatecore. OK, we don’t have those two things, but we have a lot! And we’re laying it all out here, with easily clickable links, for your convenience.
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.
Singer-songwriter Agustín Donati plays a full-band show in anticipation of his upcoming album release, at this event hosted by the folks at ElCanciller.com. Check out the above video and keep an eye out for the part where he beats up a mannequin next to a dumpster. Art!

Y’know, as the editor-in-chief of this here publication, Evy would probably encourage me to avoid any impressions of favoritism by going on at great lengths about what a great band Fervors is, but fuck it! What’s she gonna do, FIRE ME? Evy’s band Fervors is fantastic, and on the first Saturday of every month they host this great event called Haus Party. Good drinks, good food, and very good live music. This week, the guest performers are the wonderfully unusual sounds of Diana Divaga and the dreamy lo-fi sounds of Rosalba Menna.
