Christian Vaca + Gastón del Carmen + Emily And at Il Amichi Bar
This one is for those who love venturing out into the conurbano. Christian Vaca will be presenting his album Rosas, Claveles y Crisantemos for the last time, and fellow musicians Gastón del Carmen and Emily And will be part of this celebration.
If you’re into folk, heartfelt themes, and lyrical masterpieces, then head down to Il Amichi Bar in San Miguel for a hefty dose of acoustic guitars and intimate performances. The show will be a la gorra, which means you’re encouraged to collaborate with your hard-earned cash. And honestly, you should!

Mugre o Muerte Festival 18th edition
With such a name, one would think we’re inviting you to a thrash metal gig, but no. Mugre o Muerte is a festival that features some of the most avant-garde musical acts of our scene. This time their lineup is looking better than ever. This edition will take place in La Plata.
First, there’s Cuco and their noisy and abrasive songs, then we’ve got Grindgeria with an equally powerful set, Paso de Sombra with their atmospheric soundscapes, and Flaaryr, an ex-member of Hungría, that has come to Buenos Aires for some time before returning to Iceland.
Get your tickets right here and delight your ears!
8 pm | $800 | Centro Cultural Favero | 117 y 40 (La Plata)
