Another Wednesday, another round of shows good enough to skip building pillow forts for your cat (he’d rather chill in your sock drawer anyway). From black metal to troubadours, Buenos Aires is offering something for everyone this week – and you can find it all here.
PS. I am heading out on vacation, and am thereby leaving you in the good and generous care of my buddy Jorge until Easter. Be nice.
PSS. (PPS? PPSS??) Check out the Setlist’s spotify playlist featuring our favorite local female artists below:

She will be performing songs on the lovely terrace of Casa Rodolfo Walsh this Thursday evening, this time with the soulful r&b artist Nicolás Carou.
