BARCELONA AGENDA 28.11.16 – 4.12.16

November is almost over and Christmas  almost here, oh yeah deal with it… There are a few very nice Christmas markets around the city like the one in Sagrada Famila or around the Cathedral that you should check out! This week we will keep focusing in normal not very #Chrismacy plans, we will have time for that later on.

MONDAY 28TH OF NOVEMBER | DOCUMENTAL SIN PERMISO

It is quite difficult to choose the plans for every week considering the amount of cool things going on in Barcelona. I love the way the city is full of talented people with great ideas and how this potentiates creativity.

 

Taking this into consideration is hard to understand why Barcelona is so restrictive with street art and the free expression of the artist. This documentary shows the real situation of the people who want to show their talent to the public and make a living out of it. Pretty cool plan for a Monday to learn more about this city and its people.

TUESDAY 29TH OF NOVEMBER | GÉNESIS EL HOMBRE

After the first time we went to this great party at Metric Market we cannot stop recommending it every time a new sessions comes ups.

Remind you that they are creating a Genesis of The World through a series of events where they celebrate the different steps of creation, from the conception from nothing to the moment the first men appear on earth. best theme party in barcelonaFor this adventure they are bringing the Greek artist Insane 51 to tell the absolute truth through his glasses. A great event where they mix art, music and beautiful people to warm up your Tuesday evening.

WEDNESDAY 30TH OF NOVEMBER | WINE TASTING + TAPAS

We love wine tastings, I have been at least to three different ones lately and they are always so much fun! All of them where in Catalan so its cool to get more involved in the culture and try to guess their explanation about any particular wine but usually is a fun event where you can meet very interesting people.

This one comes with some tapas apart from the presence of the wine expert Juan Manuel Gonzalvo who will guide us through the different kind of wines of the night. Price is super good, only 10€ and you need to confirm your seat!

THURSDAY 1ST OF DECEMBER | VAN VAN PASSEIG DE GRACIA

How convenient to have this wonderful Van Van party in Gracia. For all the street food lovers (and I know there are many in the room) just to let you know that it will be on this Thursday from 8pm until 1am and they will count with 12 trucks.

You will have to go there to see who is coming but one of my favorites  Warike will be there bringing their awesome food!  I am totally in love with their chicken burger, I think I could marry her…but not sure if they will have it this time (shall I write them and beg for it?).

AGENCIA MATRIMONIAL AT TEATRE NEU

Last week we went to watch this play with some friends and it was soooo much fun! In the stage we have only one actress who does several roles representing different ladies signing in for a dating agency,and it was hilarious.

The only play on Thursday is at 10pm so its perfect to grave something to eat at the van van market and then head to Teatreneu in Gracia 😉

FRIDAY 2ND OF DECEMBER | SEXY BICYCLE, KEEMS AND ROSELLA CARMESI

Some more music made in Barcelona this Friday at Freedonia. I have been listening to them while writing the blog for this week and all of them are just great, it give me the impression that the music scene in Barcelona is better than ever with many talented people trying to find their path and share their music with you.

Sexy Bicycle is an alternative psychedelic rock band where Nika Elia takes ownership of the music, voice and lyrics. Keems is a band born in 2014 formed by Carmen Muñoz, Martín Ferrer, Quim Coll, Carlos Ramon and Marcel Clària and Rosella Carmesi is an absolute sweet heart with a beautiful voice and great talent. Three bands quite different from one another and I am sure you will love them.

Let´s see if I can convince the gang to go there on Friday! If you feel like joining just write us, we are quite welcoming people and pretty harmless (especially since our friend Roy will be away…).

PIVOT AT MARULA CAFE

For the party animals we have a new proposal at Marula Café with Pivot, an electronic music band that composes its entire repertoire live from lyrics to the melody and rhythm.

The director uses the musical sing language to guide the group making incredible music on the spot, thus everyone of their shows are unique and unrepeatable. An absolutely new experience for your Friday night in Barcelona.

SATURDAY 3RD OF DECEMBER | OSO WINTER FEST

This market looks pretty much like a Winter Wonderland Spanish style and they could not chose a better location than Poble Espanyol to celebrate it.

There will be some live music, food, Christmas movies  to watch under a blanket and design stands to do some gift shopping for those special days, and it just looks too cute to miss it out…

SUNDAY 4TH OF DECEMBER | DIADA DE LA RUMBA

This is the most representative day for La Rumba Catalana of the year. For those who don’t know La Rumba Catalana is is “a genre of music that developed in Barcelona’s Romani community beginning in the 1950s. Its rhythms are derived from the flamenco rumba, with influences from Cuban music and rock and roll” (thank you Wikipedia I couldn’t have described it better!).rumba catalanaThus the party on Sunday will welcome everybody to get more familiar with this music style, learn a few tips on how to play and dance it and mingle with new people. There are a few workshops in case that you are interested but need to register with time 😉

Those are our favorite plans for the week, easy, simple and cheap, because life in Barcelona should be like this! 😉
