Welcome back all to this beautiful space we’ve called The Setlist. Your trusty weekly agenda event rarely takes a break from bringing you the finest live shows happening in Buenos Aires. If there’s some secret show, some interesting new artists performing, you can bet your bottom dollar that we’ll be there. This week will be no different since we’ve got everything from soft acoustic pop to the nastiest and meanest darkwave you’ve ever heard come out of Argentina. Yes, no hyperbole. Without further ado, we bring you The Setlist in all its splendor:
By the way, don’t forget! We’ve got an 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 the Monday previous to your event to be considered.
Fabricio Robles at Apórt
The week kicks off with an amazing find from our scouting team. The great Fabricio Robles, who’ll be playing some songs in a solo set format at Apórt in Capital Federal. Not only are Fabricio’s compositions intriguing and heavily jazz-inspired but also inexplicably tender and heartfelt. His approach to arrangements is so satisfying and his voice sounds silky in both his studio efforts and copious live sessions.
From the looks of it, this gig will feature some new songs from Fabricio so if that doesn’t sound exciting enough, you’ll be happy to hear that the show will be a la gorra. So really, there’s no excuse to miss this eclectic up-and-coming artist.

Mujercitas Terror + Excursionistas at Lucille
Friday ups the ante in terms of distortion and headbandingness (Is that a thing? It is now a thing) with stellar performances from Mujercitas Terror and their Sonic Youth-esque energy, their relentless songs, and their imposing stage presence. They’ll be joined by no other than Excursionistas. A band that manages to deftly balance hard rock and classic Argie rock in a neatly packed combo with a nuanced sound.

Ears & Eyes Record mini Festival Vol. IV
As if it wasn’t enough with the huge variety of artists we feature here in The Setlist, we’re bringing you an experimental jazz festival with some of the most prominent features of the scene. This time the people from Ears & Eyes Records are hosting a festival with presentations from Ingrid Feniger, Michael Sarian (and his porteño quartet) and a jazz quartet featuring Lucas Goicoechea!
8:15pm | $600+ service | Roseti | Gallo 760
Haus Party: Fervors + Copycat + Violenta Josefina
This one is gonna be for the books! As some of you might already know, Fervors (one of our favorite dream-pop groups) will be acting as hosts for their now mythical Haus Parties. This time, as they put it, it will be the “Siren Edition” and they’ll be joined by Copycat (Lea Franova & Alejo Monsalvo) and Violenta Josefina and her very own spin on dream pop that will surely be turning more than a couple of heads.
Haus Parties are always a time for celebration so if you want to be part of such a celebration make sure to make your reservations by clicking here. You’ll also get any extra info you need post-reservation!
9pm | a house plant or non-perishable food| Casa Darwin| Address available after reservation
Melile and Nan Que at Cultural Morán
Two of the most inspirational experimental pop artists who’ve been making waves in the scene are joining forces at Cultural Morán this Saturday. First, the multi-disciplinary Melile. We like to think about Melile as a David Byrne who’s been under the Buenos Aires night sky for way too long. Infectious grooves but also challenging songs are only a few of the things that Melile brings to the table, and this time this will all be on display with a full band presentation. Not only that but Nan Que (who released one of our favorite albums of 2021) will be performing a solo set, setting the stage for an unforgettable night.

Las Eras at Páramo Cultural
Las Eras are a band that we’ve always followed very closely and after the release of their latest album “2021” we’ve been eager to get to see them live, especially with how hard that album goes. Luckily our prayers have been heard and they’ll be playing some darkwave bangers at Páramo Cultural.
This will not only be a fecha, but also a book presentation by Felipe Arriagada. The Chilean writer will present “Pasillos Ciegos” with the help of Ediciones Hora Mágica. Grab those tickets over here!
