Hey-oh! It’s your favorite music hook-up.
But isn’t it high time we introduce ourselves? You might be wondering who these fine music dealers are…You might also be wondering if you’ve got a chance at a date with us, perhaps…? But, I digress.

Do you know what’s more interesting than knowing our ture identities? A weekend’s worth of kickass live shows where you can support loads of artists who are back on stage. There’s even a festival…and man isn’t that a blast? Let’s get into it:
Don’t forget! We’ve got a shiny new events calendar. If you have an event you’d like to promote, just fill out the form here and we’ll have it live on the site within 24 hours. If you’d like to be featured in next week’s Setlist, please submit your event by Monday for your event to be considered.
Paz Carrara at Casa Cultural C’est La Vie
Paz Carrara is one of those artists that manages to juggle their influences without wearing them on their sleeve overtly. Her brand of folk-pop has an endearing quality, with songs featuring heavy yet tasteful effects on her voice and her instrumentation. On some tracks, her soft-spoken lyrics are backed by soft brass which give them a cushion-like texture. She’s definitely one of those artists you don’t wanna miss. Thanks to the peeps from C’est La Vie over in La Plata, you’ll get to see her perform some of her best tunes. by Get your seats here!
8pm | a la gorra by booking in advance | C’est La Vie Espacio Cultural | Calle 55 1143 (La Plata)
Ronda de Canciones at Chimera Espacio Cultural
This one is really special. You know how in every social gathering there are often those moments where someone takes out a guitar and starts jamming along with the rest of the guests. Now imagine that same sequence but with an assortment of extremely talented guitarists and musicians. That’s what Chimera brings us this week featuring the following amazing players and songwriters: Clara Gius, Eugenia Sasso, Sofi Álvarez, Catalín Munteanu, and Lujan Rissi. Get your tickets here!

Penny Peligro and Niños Envueltos at Strummer Bar
Saturday starts off with a nice little two-punch combo. Penny Peligro and her recently released record are ready to come out and play with a brand new coat of pastel-colored paint, while Niños Envueltos decorate the stage with loads of guirnaldas in a festive frenzy fit for the occasion. If all of this doesn’t doesn’t sound like an exciting welcome back party then please step aside and make room cause the baby pink birthday cake is coming through. If you’re in the mood to be lighter and brighter (and really who isn’t right about now?) then get your beautiful self to Strummer Bar on Saturday. Also, the link for the tix is right here!

Alan Sutton y Las Criaturitas de la Ansiedad at El Abasto
Where could one even begin to describe Alan Sutton‘s particular brand of music? Let’s just say that Alan’s catalog falls somewhere between rock-opera, soul, and funk with a dose of goofy but also socially charged lyrics. His style goes from reggae to hard rock from one verse to the other without sounding out of place at any given moment. Let’s just say that you need to see him perform live at least once in your life and we’ll leave it at that so you can tell us how it went afterward. Make sure to get your tickets, though! They are flying FAST. And yes, they’ll be building a stage around El Abasto!
7:30pm | $600| El Abasto | Avenida Corrientes 3247
