BARCELONA AGENDA 28.3.16-3.4.16

Oh mates we do love being on holidays! Couldn’t wait for those 4 days off to enjoy our lovely city Barcelona. Even if all I wanted to do was sleeping, this wonderful weather pushed me away from bed to explore the city and the thousands of events going on during the Easter break.

Because we won´t let you get bored in Barcelona we bring you again the perfect agenda for every day of the week!

MONDAY 28TH MARCH | THE HOLYDRUG COUPLE + CELESTIAL BUMS AT FUNDACION FREEDONIA

I have to recognize that I had no idea who those bands were but the names are quite cool. As I do with everything that is unknown to me I asked my best friend Google and I have to say I am quite happy about the result! Love the “religious” theme of the party right after “Semana Santa”, well done Fundación Freedonia!

The first band The Holydrug Couple apart from having a super cool and original name they have a special talent for psychedelic rock music. They come all the way from Santiago de Chile for their European tour and we will be lucky enough to have them in Barcelona!

Celestial Bumbs is a band from Barcelona, they describe their music as “a thick and hypnotic wall of sound that emanates a monotone neo-psychedelia accompanied by evocative lyrics of freedom, consciousness and travels”. After listening to them I don’t think I could do a better description.

WEDNESDAY 30TH MARCH | “URBAN VIEWS” AT BAR DEL CONVENT

This Wednesday is the last day to enjoy this free exhibition at Bar del Covent in El Born. The artist is Iris Herrera, a Catalan young woman with different influences that considers herself auto-didactic and hypersensitive, reflecting her personality on all her work.

Carrer del Comerç, 36, 08003

We really like this kind of exhibitions, quieter and personal and where you can talk face to face with the artist, finding out what inspire and provoke them. Urban Views wants to show human feelings through facial expressions using different painting techniques.

The venue, Bar del Convent is a unique spot in Barcelona at Covent de San Agusti. What makes them special is the aim to help new ideas and projects in Barcelona through the use of their installations. They are welcoming any kind of events from art exhibitions, bands, comedians, etc.

THURSDAY 31ST MARCH | PRESENTATION GUINEU BEER

IPA beer lovers do you think there is enough offer for you in Barcelona? I am quite content with Estrella Damn wherever I go, however I am totally aware it might not be the best option for Ales and IPA’s seekers.

The plan for Thursday will be perfect for you! Napar BCN Restaurant, one of the best places to have craft artisan beer is organizing a session with the guys from Gineu Beer, who will do a live session about IPA’s.

Napar BCN has a very elaborated food menu as well so be prepared to enjoy the best dinner and drinks of the week. Here is the menu if you want to have an idea of the yummy stuff you will find there 😉

FRIDAY 1ST APRIL | THE JOKE´S ON US

We really appreciate the effort Barcelona is doing to include more shows, events and exhibitions in English to reach all the international people in the city. This is one of the main reasons we love Barcelona, right?

SATURDAY 2ND APRIL | TASTE ALL THOSE

We are very excited about this market on Saturday. Its being a while since we went to the last Farmer´s market and cannot wait to buy some fresh products. The venue couldn’t be better, the historical building of University of Barcelona.

The whole idea behind Taste all Those is great, they will have the food coming directly from the fields outside the city. Among all the products you can find fresh veggies, fruit, cheese, meat and even flowers.  You can also have a chat with the experts while you enjoy a sunny day full of music and good people.

The best? They have stands cooking on the spot for you and lockers  where you can leave the stuff that you buy and keep enjoying the day.
