Just four days ago the strike was resolved, but now it’s Wednesday and here we are once again with no way of getting from point A to point B. Classic Argentina! But what I’m wondering is: when are the musicians going to go on strike?? Well, fortunately for you, NOT THIS WEEK! (But good luck getting to the show!) Here’s the agenda:
Club Negro is the first LP of Los Muchachos de La Secta, who were featured in a La La Lista article last week! The album is an invitation, in 9 tracks, to enter a rhythmic trance as a remedy to the chaotic context of the world. The music, in reality, is more like a sort of psychedelic shock therapy. Let the unbridled spirit of rock and roll possess you through dance, and blur the lines between performer and spectator – before you know it, you’ll be a full-blown member of the secta. And beware: once you’re in, there’s no getting out. Come experience Club Negro live this Thursday in Boedo.

The revolutionary leader of Los Encargados, an all-around great inspiration, the songwriter behind “Trátame suavemente” (which you surely have heard a million very questionable renditions of on the Subway), “Quiero estar entre tus cosas,” and other historical hits. This week, we will have the good fortune of his presence at the Camping campfire, and for free! Don’t miss it.

This Saturday in Buenos Aires most acclaimed jazz club, Thelonious, English artist Jennifer Moule will be performing as her alter ego, DAMSEL TALK. Her act has been described as “Amy Winehouse crossed with Peggy Lee, an inimitable talent spanning the spectrum of vocal stylings and conquering everything from jazz to tango. Damsel Talk is not just a voice but a fully fledged one-woman show, with stints on the ukulele, monologues, and comedy skits all spliced into her performances.” I promise you will be impressed, I promise you won’t get bored!
