A couple of weeks into February and while most of us are heading back to work after much needed holidays, others are still basking on la costa with the sun rays on their bellies. Here at La La Lista, we’re busy brewing up some interesting ideas for this year but as always, we’ve carved out a little time to bring some new artists into the spotlight and some off-the-wall events to keep you busy on the weekend. Acoustic sets, festivals, beatbox, indie rock, funk, you name it – we’ve got it. Without further ado, here they are:
Long-running indie giants Mi Amigo Invencible are still touring their new album Dutsiland around CABA. Dutsiland is definitely one of their most accomplished works to date, incorporating some brand-spanking-new synth sounds into their always present indie-pop sensibilities while adding a little bit of an edge to keep things spicy. Wanna taste? Check out our earlier coverage in the Monthly Music Roundups! The band will be playing at Matienzo this Wednesday and you can get your tickets here.
9pm | $400| CC Matienzo | Pringles 1249
It’s definitely not the first time Moran has provided in the jazz department. But this time, they’re truly outdoing themselves. Alto Voltaje is a jazz supergroup where Bernardo Monk, Carlos Michelini, Ramiro Flores, and many more join forces to play a wide array of classic jazz tunes to turn Centro Cultural Moran into a proper jazz establishment. The best part is that there no stipulated entrada but you should definitely throw in a few hundies for these top-notch (jazz) musicians.
9pm | Pay what you want| Moran Cultural| Pedro Moran 2147
GULI is an upbeat and funky musical project from CABA that combines elements of classic Indie with some R&B tinged bass lines and synth chords. Oh, and it features the incredible multi-instrumentalist Melanie Williams, who we’ve written about before in our Best Local Releases of 2019. They will be playing at Camping completely FREE! So take your Valentine and who knows? Perhaps you’ll find out you two are more than just a mere vinculo sexo-afectivo.
9pm | FREE| Camping| Av. Pueyrredon 2501
We’ve got a nice one for you guys and gals right here. Eirik, which is the name of Eric Mandarina’s new beatbox and percussive guitar project, will be bringing the big guns to La Tangente. He won’t be alone though! Atmosphericicaly delightful Diego Marchionatti will be playing a set for the ages presenting his latest album El Estado Circular. Get your tickets here!

A three-headed dragon will be laying waste to La Casa Del Arbol. Now if that mythological reference is way too cliche for you, then I’m sorry bb, you’ll just have to manage. Indie rockers Pulover, Erich Larsson and Hernanrubenz will be playing their sets at La Casa Del Arbol, displaying their expert knowledge in the field of reverb-laden guitars and catchy grooves. Don’t miss it!
9pm | $150 anticipadas and $200 at the door| La Casa Del Arbol| Av. Córdoba 5217

This time they are moving to a bigger and better venue to host a plethora of artists (Fito Paez, Marilina Bertoldi, Bandalos Chinos, Perota Chingo, Barbi Recanati and Paula Maffia and more) and some ferias as well! We’re confident that this version will be even better than the last. We strongly encourage you to go and hear some of the best new artistic voices in the scene! Tickets here.
3pm | $1500 pre-sale| Hipodromo De Palermo| Av. Libertador 4101
With four albums under their belt, Javier Mareco And The Space Monkeys have positioned themselves under the umbrella term musica nueva. One could say that the generic genre combines tons of styles ranging from funk to tango-esque rhythms. Javier and his team will play alongside La Mujer Pajaro, a band with a pretty similar style from Uruguay, at the La Tangente for a show to remember! Get your tickets NOW!
9pm | $200 anticipadas and $300 at the door| La Tangente| Honduras 5317
