Dan Owen is made to love you

Although only 24 years old, Shrewsbury singer/songwriter Dan Owen’s soulful musical knack is undeniable. Owen became an overnight sensation after an audience member uploaded a video of him playing Bob Dylan’s ‘The Ballad of Hollis Brown’ online. With a hauntingly husky tone to his voice, and his own heart-felt lyrics to match, he is certainly one to watch in the upcoming indie-folk scene. He will `play tonight in Sala Sidecar by Cooncert.

So Long Forever Palace

The London boys Palace who have releases their debut LP So Long Forever  will play tonight at  Sidecar.

Palace sounds like a band that has always existed. Beautifully crafted and mature, their debut album So Long Forever  is sure to ascend them to the status of indie darlings. Fans of Foals and The National will especially appreciate their melancholy and unrushed vibe as well as their existential songwriting, which will stay with you long after the final play.

Local Bands: Evripidis and his Tragedies

Evripidis and his Tragedies is Evripidis Sabatis´ musical alter ego. Born in Athens and living in Barcelona, he plays and sings piano-based, highly melodic tunes where love, lust, and loss intertwine; summers are long and lazy; nights are haunting memories; childhood is naughty; memories are bittersweet; men are cruel; humor is black; and ghosts take the living for rides in cars.  Tonight at Sidecar with Rusos Blancos.

The muses of La Musa: Weyes Blood

Though Natalie Mering, who performs and records as Weyes Blood, chose to distort her project’s name (giving “Wise” an appropriately outré, olde feel) with a nod to the ocular (w’eyes), her entire output thus far has been an exercise in exploring the atemporal. She is a musician, a singer, after all, but the particular process of Weyes Blood’s development, and Mering’s experimentation with everything from early 2000s local-noise-scene strangeness to her present mastery of timeless balladry, highlight her as an meticulous sonic alchemist.

Weyes Blood’s new album, Front Row Seat To Earth, captivates immediately with its frank clarity in both sound and word. Though still retaining a deep influence of the classical often felt in her songs as a sense of ancient resonance, Mering is at her most intimate and vulnerable here, due in large part to her stunning vocals and simple, essential lyrical phrasing. Tonight in concert at sala Sidecar.

Les muses de La Musa: Cate Le Bon

L’univers folk post-punk pastoral de la galesa Cate Le Bon ens visita per presentar el seu quart disc, ‘Crab day’ (2016). Amb una veu que recorda a Nico, Le Bon va cridar l’atenció internacional per primera vegada el 2007, quan va telonejar al seu paisà Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), ens inunda amb saxos, guitarres distorsionades, percussions i un so que ens transporta al glam de T Rex i al Bowie de la primera meitat dels 70. Aquesta nit a Sidecar.

The Raw Youth of Le Butcherettes

Le Butcherettes is a band created by singer and guitarist Teri Gender Bender, who found fame on the Mexican underground scene giving concerts dressed in 1950s housewife garb, complete with broom, duster and apron covered in blood as a criticism of the treatment of housewives as slaves. She also is prone to employing fake blood, flour, bones from meat and a real pig’s head, and interacting with the audience. The punk/garage rock group are in Barcelona tonight at Sidecar with their third album, ‘A Raw Youth’ (2015). The Picturebooks also in the gig.
