BARCELONA AGENDA 9.5.116-15.5.16
Rafaella Carra said in one of her songs that to “have a good time” you need to come to the south…she was damn right but I have to say that I am missing my Barcelona a lot and cannot wait to be back!
I wanted to start warming up and check out what are the best plans for next week. I hope you like them!
MONDAY 9TH OF MAY | WTF JAM SESSION AT JAMBOREE
One of the few places in Barcelona that keeps betting for Jazz music is Jamboree Jazz. On Mondays they have their WTF session where you can enjoy a jam session with musicians from all over the world with a mix between Jazz, Hip Hop and Groove.

FRIDAY 13TH OF MAY | SMELLS LIKE 90´S SPIRIT AT LA SONORA DE GRACIA
There are a couple of terrace parties going on in Barcelona on Friday but I think that a party from the 90´s with Nirvana, The Cardinas and Los fresones Reveldes is way cooler…
La Sonora de Gracia is always organizing different parties and events, and you know we love this kind of busy places at Guiris en Barcelona. This party reminds me of my childhood and teen years and how we used to get ready in front of the mirror to go out and flirt with guys. We used to put way too much make up and even if my gang was more into rock music we used to dress up like “Upa dance”…
Music will come by the hand of Dj.Mamayé and Dj.Cuixaforta who will bring us to our gold days with music from Blur, Oasis, Offspring, The Cardigans, Greenday, The Rembrants, No Doubt, The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Fatboy , Sheryll Crow, Los Planetas, Dover, Aqua, Spice Girls, Back Street Boys, Ace of Base, Pixies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mano Negra, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Amparanoia and many more!
All the info about the party and ideas on how to dress up here :p
SATURDAY 14TH OF MAY | EAT STREET
Saturday 14th of May is my names day, so lucky for me, maybe I can get someone to buy me lunch at Eat Street, preferable a good looking guy looking for a serious relationship.
If not I will do the usual and force a few friends to come with me so we can have great food while I take pictures and talk around with strangers asking them what they do and getting some business cards. They usually get upset with me because I keep working during the weekend or even while dancing at clubs…
Focusing on Eat Street this is what they have on during the weekend at Nau Bostik:
