Man oh man, has it been good to see some life slowly return to our precious venues. Nothing makes our hearts beat faster than seeing the electricity return between audience and performer. And we couldn’t be happier to help support this much-needed resuscitation to live music with our little column.
With all that said, we’re still maintaining social distancing. And with that in mind, we’re curating shows based on these guidelines, promoting live shows within the Buenos Aires scene that respect the current context. If you’re looking to get your show written about, shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and you could be featured in the next one (nice!)
A friendly reminder to all: many music venues require advanced booking or reservations for tables, so if you see something that tickles your fancy it’s best to strike while the iron is hot. Otherwise you might miss out on a killer show!
