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.
Julia Zappa at La Tangente
I’m over the moon about this announcement.
The phenomenal Julia Zappa is presenting her first album, Un Incendio General, with a large band and special guests.
I heard about Julia when she released one of her first singles back in 2021, “Nuestras Deseos”, a fantastic combination of folk/tango-style music with driving passion and rhythm. I was lucky to witness her live playing at Bebop club not long after and was enthralled by the range of her voice.
Zappa truly is something else and I implore people to go check her out before she releases her first album, because seeing her live is the way to go.

Onda Vega at Niceto
Onda Vaga combines rumba, cumbia, reggae, rock and tango to create a perfect cocktail of dancey tunes to make it feel like it’s already summer despite some of the cold weather we’ve been having as of late.
They’ll be showcasing new material from their next album, but it wouldn’t be an Onda Vega show if they didn’t also feature some of their all-time classics.

Devorah & Ivo Ferrer at La Casa del Árbol
Devorah is the newest project of Vero Abbattista and Fran Cañadas, a project which sees the singer joining forces with this extraordinary multi-instrumentalist.
While Devorah is brand new, Ivo Ferrer has many strings to his bow as both a musician and a visual artist. He’ll be performing as a trio alongside two good friends and promoting his latest album, Las Flores Y Los Frutos.
21:00 | $900 + Booking Fee | La Casa del Árbol | Av. Córdoba 5217
Paula Maffia & Juan Ibarlucia at Camping
Singer and LGBTQ+ icon Paula Maffia will be performing off the back of the latest single she released with Mariana Vázquez, “Volcán.”
Maffia, a founding member La Cosa Mostra and Las Taradas, makes music that can be described as a mix of contemporary rock and folk with a heavy emphasis on emotional lyrics and utter fierceness.
Then we have Juan Ibarlucía, a member of Pommez Internacional who launched his own solo project in 2021 and has collaborated with Maffia as well. He’s slowly been releasing singles and it will certainly be exciting to see his trajectory.
21:00 | $1500 + Booking Fee | Camping | Av. del Libertador 999
Ana Capalbo at Casa Brandon
Ana Capalbo is an actress, singer, musician and composer. For more than ten years, she’s been combining these three art forms and developing her stage presence.
She’ll be presenting her new EP, aesthetic, which follows her third studio album, Perdiendo Sangre (2019).
She’s part of the independent label and musical group La Banda del V.I.P.
The supporting artist, Ceretti, is currently working on their first album, produced with Argentine pop musician Matt Montero and producer Agustín della Croce, member of Piscis Machine and a former member of Ahora.
21:00 | $1000 + Booking Fee | Casa Brandon | Luis Maria Drago 236
Las Eras, Utah & Visceral at La Casa del Árbol
Las Eras flew in my orbit after one of our fantastic writers, Eze, did a brilliant profile on the band which immediately had me hooked. The band waltzes between darkwave, post-punk and gothic tones to a mix of robotic driving drums and dancey synth lines.
Utah will be delivering a hypnotic, dark electronic project which blends ambient tracks along with more dance-heavy rhythms and certainly brings about a feeling of needing to be in a dingey, low-roof dive bar to appreciate its full gravitas.
And finally: Visceral. It’s a rather fitting name for this experimental noisy act, which at times borders Gabber and Hardstyle. It’s this aggressive and bold energy which defines the group and makes their performances a hell of an experience.
21:00 | $1500 + Booking Fee | La Casa del Árbol | Av. Córdoba 5217
La La Lista Halloween Party
It’s La La Lista’s first event ever!

Lore Toso at Club Lucille
A classic display of tango by Lore Toso accompanied by pianist Pablo Fraguela will be taking place in the mighty Lucille this Saturday.
Toso will be showcasing her newest concert, …y sin embargo te quiero, taking you on a tango journey through the history of the locally born and bred genre.
It’s sure to be a lovely evening of classic Argentine music.
20:00 | $800 + Booking Fee | Club Lucille | Gorriti 5520
Dani Ferretti at Vuela El Pez
Dani Ferretti is an independent singer-songwriter who has just released his brand-new video and single, “Lo Que Se Daba.”
In addition to its characteristic Weissenborn (Hawaiian slide guitar) sound, he incorporates elements of Argentine Norteño music. With songs that reflect deep emotions, Dani will be giving a sneak peek at some of the material which will appear on his next album, set to be released in 2023.
Ferretti will be supported by Daniel Arena, a singer-songwriter who also plays the Weissenborn, in addition to his classic acoustic guitar.
His songs have a great atmospheric appeal, taking you to quiet places and serene landscapes. He’s releasing a new EP called IO and will be playing some of those new songs this very evening.
