So I was gonna write this very calm and collected intro but SERIOUSLY WTF BUENOS AIRES? If this is what spring is gonna be like then I’ll just snuggle into a huge-ass sweater and sleep until you’re nicer to be around. Literally while I’m writing this it’s POURING outside.

Any who, I’m back this week to bring you a heaping helping of cool live music events to fill your week and weekend. 

P.S. That’s huge-ass sweater, not huge ass-sweater. Who has a sweater for their ass? Don’t be a weirdo. 

THURSDAY 17

◭ 52 Cancionautas 52 at La Casa Del Arbol ◭

As they’ve been doing for 51 editions, La Casa Del Arbol presents their now famous and celebrated ciclo Cancionautas. If you’re in the mood for some original songs by up-and-coming artists who might one day be filling up venues all around the city, then this is definitely your chance to get to hear them in their rawest and most intimate form. The best part? Not only will you be supporting our local musical scene, but the event is also an a la gorra event so you can pay (no $2 bills FOR THE LOVE OF GOD) what you want!

FRIDAY 18

Música para viajar at Club Plasma

Many of the bands and live acts we recommend here at La La Lista are quite trippy but this time we are taking it to the next level. Musica para viajar promises to bring forth artists that share a common thread: the fact that their music is not only trippy in the sense that it transports you to different places, but they are also people who travel often and it really shows in their musical arrangements. Take Manu Estrach with his tender and overwhelmingly powerful voice, Jeronimo Ramasco who’s guitar compositions are breathtaking. Also, Morel and Sol Basurto will be the pibas who’ll be sharing some of their folklore-tinged songs and gorgeous lyrics. For more info, hit the event link and don’t forget to share!

Mermelada de Morcilla, Agustin Arnau and Fabula at Antiguas Lunas

Infectious choruses, funky guitars, and anthemic harmonies. If any of that sounds like something you might enjoy, then this show will be of your liking for sure! Mermelada de Morcilla (disgusting mental picture, I know) will be presenting his uplifting and at times jarring pop-infused songs alongside Agustin Arnau, who’ll be bringing some funk to the mix and Fabula, the female-fronted proggy-rock outfit that’s been making its way through the indie scene jungle. The entrada is a la gorra so there’s no excuse not to go!
