Yes. At long last, the longest fall seems to be winding itself down, and this week was the first in awhile in which I found myself dreading getting out of bed (aside from the ocassional hangover anyway). Whether it’s due to the creeping chill of existential dread or just the weather getting a little colder is anyone’s guess (maybe it’s both!)
In any case, I now I could use a little bit of live music to make the days a little more easy to bear, and maybe you could too. From drone to triphop to synthpop and more, we have just the selection to shimmy away your angst.
We start off our pre-weekend with one for the more adventurous music fans out there. Drone legend Stephen O’Malley (of Sun O))) fame) is coming to Buenos Aires to present the aptly-titled ‘Drone Sound Bath’, his latest production involving eclectic instrumentation and occult overtones. He’ll be joined by local kindred spirits Fiend, Alma Laprida + Alan Courtis, Zigo Rayopineal, and vlüba.
