Ah, the 3-day work week — a glorious circumstance made even better by a wonderfully eclectic bunch of live music options. This week we have pretty much everything — folk, electropop, dreampop, indie rock, stoner rock, math rock, post-rock and more.

Join Los Espiritus for the 7th edition of “The Party of the Spirit,” with a live performance and all-night DJ set by the band. Rock band and close friends of the party hosts FUTBOL opens. Considering the event felt it necessary to clarify that they can’t admit guests after 4am, this one should be good.
Espacio Cultural Dinamo is back for another night of local bands, this time featuring math rock band Los Días, instrumental act Hijos Amigos, and post-rock band Puerto Austral. Come for the bands, stay for the vegan options and free ping-pong.
