It’s the festive season not only because the end of the year is so close that I can almost taste it, but we’re all still rejoicing in what was a fantastic world cup season.

While a fair few of you may be completely shattered from screaming your lungs out at Obelisco, there is still far more partying to be done. 

Compared to the stinking hot days a couple of weeks back it seems like the weather is becoming a bit more bearable thankfully. So get amongst it!

This week we’re featuring a legend of the local rock scene, an indie darling, and some fresh blood in this edition of the Setlist.

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.

Luca Bocci at La Tangente

Luca Bocci is a Mendozan that released their first EP “Ahora” back in 2017, being one of the more junior members of the Cuyo indie revolution (see: Simón Poxyran, Perras on the Beach, Usted Señalemlo, Mi Amigo Invencible y Las Cosas que Pasan).

Bocci took their work to different cities in Argentina, Chile, Mexico and the rest of Latin America, leading a new movement that seeks to renew the scene with a fresh, unprejudiced look and self-awareness.

Now Bocci is closing off the year with a final show in Buenos Aires. Also, they’re so kind that they ended up putting on a second show after the first sold out!

Mariana Michi at La Tangente

Mariana Michi is saying goodbye to 2022 with HIJO DE CAMPEONES, her latest self-produced album. 

For this album, she has gone further down the rabbit hole of experimentation by doing her own audio, recording her instruments and then distorting them. 

These original recordings were taken in her home studio.

Wading through the waters with ghostly keyboards, slightly uncoordinated eccentric guitars, and electronic percussive bases, this album is fresh and interesting, without abandoning the fascinating vocal melodies for which the singer is known.

Our team loves Michi and this would be a great send-off for the year.

Their longevity is a testament to the hard work the band has put into playing together for the last 10 years. Despite obvious creative changes during the quarantine, the band still maintains their classic sound.
