It’s that time of year again – ghouls and ghosties are running amuck in the night, tricks and treats await you around every corner, spooky skeleton memes are filling up your Facebook newsfeed, and you are still wondering if “pumpkin spice” is ever going to happen for Argentina.
Somewhere in the dead of night, in the wee hours of the madrugada, down a dark alleyway, in a shadowy basement, are echoing the screams and screeches of LIVE MUSIC. And, thankfully, La La Lista is here to tell you at exactly which haunts and hollers you can seek out and bear witness to this frightening phenomenon. Here’s our lineup for this week:
Come out Wednesday night to this special event organized by ZeZé, the Peruvian poet, promoter, and patron-of-the-arts extraordinaire who always wears his sunglasses at night. As ZeZé says, “when you’re blind, everyone is a ghost” – don’t miss your chance to come out and be a part of what is sure to be a haunting experience! The event will feature women from all over the Americas, with live music from pianist Eugenia Guzmán, Mexican singer songwriter Paola Ventieri, and Peruvian singer songwriter Santa García. There will also be poetry readings, and you can get your tarot cards read for 100 pesos.

Yolanda Discos and Casa del Puente Discos are joining forces to bring us a night of splendid music in Capital Federal. Queridas has come all the way from Rosario to gaze at the Buenos Aires stars and play dreamy stargazey music for us. Nunca fui a un parque de diversiones, who play a style of music they call Canivaldombe (a mixture of Latin rhythms crossed with samples and tribal songs) will be joining in from La Plata, for their first show of the year in Capital. Dream poppy post punk rockers Altocamet are coming up from Mar del Plata, and, last but not least, locals La Vida en Familia are bringing their vintage dancey beats from right here in town.

Mi Pequeña Muerte is a band that formed in San Martín eighteen years ago (wow, I was seven then). Many people know them for their appearance on the soundtrack for the movie Como un avión estrellado (2005). Their most recent release was the album Alimentan los Lobos, which was released in June of this year. This Saturday they will be sharing the date with singer songwriter Rosario Bléfari, accompanied by her backing band, who will be presenting a new single which is to be released on Friday.
La Buena Vibra is an attitude that infects us and brings us together, in a city whose music, art, and people, all vibe together. Live music and art, exhibits, and the desire to live in the moment make this a can’t-miss festival for the restless youth. This edition will feature performances from emotional funk artist Emmanuel Horvilleur, pop group Bandalos Chinos, afro-dub stoners Morbo y Mambo, jazzy alternative pop artist Candelaria Zamar, psychedelic indie pop group Telescopios, experimental folk artist Weste, and R&B/soul artist Chita.
