Friday 1st

ART: Artists Cabaio and NASA are inaugurating their new “ASIMETRICOS” collaborative exhibition at the UNION gallery (Costa Rica 5929) at 7PM. Here’s more information about the creative process straight from the horse’s mouth.

MUSIC: It seems the city just cannot get enough of these guys. El mató a un Policia Motorizado are playing at Teatro Vorterix (Federico Lacroze 3455) from 7PM and we highly suggest you go if you haven’t yet experienced what it is like to be amidst a crowd of Argentine fans. Tickets cost AR$160 online or at pick up at Teatro Vorterix.

MUSIC: Not Buenos Aires but worthy enough for the list. Fellow British band Coldplay is performing in La Plata at 7PM. The tickets are dear but Facu has been promising to take you out on that memorable date for a while now.

VISUAL & MUSIC: Watch the walls of San Telmo get taken to the next level of street art from 10PM with projections and music by Al Ver Veras. For more information you must contact these guys.

Saturday 2nd

PARTY: Okay, this time it actually is the last PM Open Air. Promise. Winter is officially upon us. Just try to get home in one piece, please. 3PM. AR$200.

ART TALK: In the light of exhibition Vanguardia, Caballo de Troya, América, artist Leila Tschopp and social scientist Hernán Borisonik will be having a talk at the MACBA (San Juan 328) at 5.30PM regarding the creative processes behind the exhibition. While you’re there, check out Adriana Lestido’s photography exhibition too.

BOOKS: Photo Book Club is hosting an evening at Casa Abasto (Anchorena 632) from 7PM. There will be various photography books on show, talks and draws.

FOOD: Buenos Aires Market is back, fellow foodies. World cuisine is taking over Palermo’s Hippodrome (Libertador and Dorrego) in the form of trucks. If you only try one thing, make it the chocotorta ice-cream on a stick. Cocktails, wines, beer and music are of course in the cards too. Entrance is free and doors open at 7PM. Eat your way through the continents all the way until 2AM.

THEATER: If you’re into improv, make your way to Chacarita for a duel fiercer, tenser and greater than Boca-Rivers at 8PM: Nerds vs Conurbanos. The weapons of choice? Words and wit. The theatrical improvisation will be battled out by four geeks and four conurbanos (tough guys from Greater Buenos Aires, essentially) in Teatro Gargantúa (Jorge Newbery 3563). Tickets cost AR$120 on the door.

Sunday 3rd

FOOD: If you’re sick of the steak, a vegan food fair is on from 1.30PM to 5.30PM at Cooperativa Bar Casona Humahuaca (Humahuaca 3508). All hail, the vegetable protein.

FOOD: Prepare your empty stomachs for culinary euphoria provided to you all day long from all four corners of the globe. Petit Mercado is back at Galpón Milagros (Gorriti 5417) from 1PM to 9PM and our taste buds are ready.

FAIR: Arts, crafts, food and drinks from 3PM at La Minga Club Cultural (Maza 1165).

MASS BIKE RIDE: Got a bike? If the answer is no, find one because this Sunday is going to be a bumpy ride. Cyclists are gathering at the Obelisk (9 de Julio and Corrientes) at 4PM for Masa Critica AKA every taxista’s nightmare – slash- an excuse to cycle around the city raising awareness about green-transportation while enjoying the last of this heat. It’s fun, just don’t be a pelotudo about it.

MUSIC: Cabo Polonio vibes are making their way down to Club Cultural Konex (Sarmiento 3131) on Sunday night. Uruguayan-Argentine band Onda Vaga will be performing from 8PM. Doors open at 7PM and tickets cost AR$160 online or at the door. Buena onda, people.

MUSIC: It’s that time of the month in Club Cultural Matienzo (Pringles 1249). From 10PM, grab a cold pint of beer and get swept away to New Orleans, New York and Paris by live music from Woody Allen’s films performed by Paris Jazz Club and guest artists. Tickets cost $AR70 online or can be purchased at CCM beforehand from 7PM. If you buy them on the door, it’s AR$100.
