Primavera Club 2017

In the face of uncertainty: music. Primavera Club celebrates live music and does so from its strongest vantage point: the future. Over three days, from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd October, more than 40 artists will perform on the stages of several venues in Barcelona and Madrid during the festival of musical discoveries Primavera Club.

For the first time and on our stages you will be able to see artists including Amber Coffman (ex Dirty Projectors), Superorganism (who according to the predictions of the British press, are set to be a favourite at festival season 2018), Yellow Days, the unapologetic Starcrawler, Moor Mother, Intana, Smerz, Medalla and Gabriel Garzón-Montano, all whom step by step are laying claim to their place on the future scene. Although, as at every edition, the real revelations will come when least expected.

In Barcelona the special attraction will be the chance to see the remodelled La [2] de Apolo for the first time, where some of the festival’s concerts will be held only a few days before its official inauguration. Also, for the second consecutive year the Centre Cultural Albareda will host the free weekend daytime concerts, which will include concerts by artists from here (Marina Herlop, Cor Blanc) and there (Camila Fuchs, RAKTA)

Full festival tickets for Primavera Club 2017 are still on sale at 25€, while day tickets cost 15€. Let the music play!

Ville à Dômat: Listening The Unknown

Local Bands: Lu Rois

It has taken this young pianist from Sabadell only a couple of years to make a name for herself among the extremely sensitive and talented composers. With a bewitching voice which she alone accompanies on the piano, Lu Rois moves between chamber folk, minimalist ambient music and intimate ballads all of which laid the foundations of “Camí de far”, a debut that perfectly combined serenity and tenderness that are influenced by the classics, and the EP “Cau de Lluna” that was released in April.

Local Bands: Tversky

Miquel Serra and Xavier Paradís have temporarily moved away from their adventure with Boreals to give free reign to Tversky, a project named in honour of the Israeli neuroscientist Amos Tversky with which they move even closer to the dance floor, alternating between funk and house with a sound reminiscent of chillwave. Whilst waiting to release their first LP on the Catalan label Foehn, the band has already got people talking with “Time Warp”, an atmospheric galactic techno EP on DROK Records. Tonighh Primavera Club present them at La2.

Hit of the week: Operators “Control”

Dan Boeckner, guitarist of the edgy band Wolf Parade, changes register and moves into the sphere of eighties electronic pop and synth-pop with Operators, a project that he shares with drummer Sam Brown (Devojka, Divine Fits) with whom he updates the dark sounds of bands such as New Order and Joy Division. After publishing a presentation EP in 2014, the band has released their first LP this year “Blue Wave”, an album that has elements of LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode and Future Islands. This next friday night at Primavera Club.
