V a p o r w a v e  at CC Recoleta

Meanwhile, at that very same venue but, like, a few doors away probably, Colectivo Arcade and VaporCrew 95 本のクールなもの partner up to bring everything weirdly nostalgic — we’re talking slowed-down synthpop songs and obsolete gaming machinery — back to your life. They’ll be featuring performances by members of Dirty Caka, as well as sets by ghost kid and Kadabra. There will also be a special performance by the band AMIGA UY,

8 PM | Centro Cultural Recoleta | Junín 1930

Ciclo Fantasía Peligro #2: Roberto Monstruo & Medalla Milagrosa

9 PM | AR $100 | Brandon | Luis Maria Drago 236

Ocho Cero Ocho # 36
