I almost forget about writing about this short news item I wrote last week. The present events in Catalonia have us all in a kind of emotional shock. Hence my delay in writing this entry. Anyways, it’s just a small piece writing about the single release and a small description of the videoclip that accompanies it.
Now that feminist movements are on their heyday, a new event has come to add to the whole thing. I’m talking about the ‘Las chicas lo petan’, hold by a new label called ‘pértiga music’. While I’m not so sure why having only women could be a reason for success, it is, anyway, the hallmark of this whole movement and label. Wherever all this take us, here‘s the little piece I wrote about the event and the label’s birth.
Having two jobs and trying to be a collaborator for online magazines at the same time makes it a bit impossible to be able to be everywhere when required. That’s why an overlapping meeting of one of my jobs is what prevented me from attending Desert Mountain Tribe‘s gig as a press member. Darn! Instead, I had to go with just the announcement of the release of their latest videoclip and of their concert on September 14 at Sala Sidecar. Oh well, next time…
After I don’t know how many frustrated attempts to carry out an interview with some musician or artist, last Monday I had the pleasure to meet artist Javi Corellano, who is opening his new exhibition The Glowing End on Thursday 13 at the Nasty Garage. It was a pleasure to chat with this charming man as well as with his manager, Montse Carreño, who was most kind and attentive before, during and after the interview.
I had never prepared an interview with an artist, so I just followed the google-the-interviewee-as-much-as-you-can procedure and got to know quite a few curious things about him and his multifaceted work that I hope you will enjoy reading about in this interview, published in Hipsterian Circus.
Scarcely had my last review on the Vida Festival 2017 appeared published when I was already being asked to write about the confirmation of the first act (some Nick Mulvey that I’ll have to do some research into) and a little summary on this year’s festival attendance as well as the release of the first tickets for next year at a reduced price here. Does this mean I’ll be covering the Vida Festival as a press member? No idea, but I do know that I already have my ticket for next year, and that I’ll be renting a hotel room for those days, seeing the deplorable experience I had this year with the Monbus coaches.
It seems that Parets del Vallès will be holding the Festival Parc de la Linera for the third time, event about which I wrote this little piece for Hipsterian Circus. Although this year this festival doesn’t seem to have any well-known acts (yet), it has welcomed names that are now rather known in the present local music scene, such as Cala Vento and The Crab Apples, the latter participating in this year’s Primavera Sound. You never know where a festival like Parc de la Linera will surprise you or not, so it can certainly be a good chance to discover a new band which might enjoy some success in the (near) future.
