[Update 18 April – well that gig was a wee bit different to anything else we’ve been to these last 5 months! Gotta say though that main band Borracara where blindingly fast, loud and very tight with it, 16 songs in under 30 minutes. Go see them if you can! The event took place in what was essentially an ‘apartment’ in an old run-down colonial building in the port area – the band played in 1 room whilst the small audience watched through the doorways of 2 adjoining rooms…there was also a small bar selling cans of lager, or lager, and a loo! Great fun and herbal cake available too. We’ve even got our hearing back now].
In a potentially futile attempt to ‘resurrect’ our long gone youth, we’re nipping out to our version of ‘church’ for an evening of extreme noise and 60second songs. The venue, we believe, is somewhere in the dodgier part of the port area in #Valparaiso, #Chile, where the lights are dim and the streets reek of piss & dogshit…so just like the days of our youth! But will they let a couple of old gringos in we wonder? And is there a bar!?
The event (on FB of course) features: Borracara from Argentina (bandcamp and Utube); Manual de Combate from Santiago (see Utube), and 2 local Valpo bands – Epifania & Nosotros La Miseria (aka We the Misery). Sounds like a fun Sunday nighter eh!!!
