Ciclo Sidewalk in Miscelanea! Bitchin Bajas, Lucrecia Dalt, Ensemble Economique, Bradien and Umberto!!!

The last months we have been preparing a little series of nights in Miscelanea. In the tradition of small and intimate concerts in Miscelanea, we can confirm 5 artists divided over three nights that are going to prepare this recipe with perfection! Get yourself a ticket for the whole series for 12 euros, or buy individual tickets for your preferred night for 6 euros.

Friday 6th of April: Bitchin Bajas (Important Records/CAVE/USA) + Lucrecia Dalt (BCN)
The first night will see a side-project of two members of the awesome krautrock band CAVE: Bitchin' Bajas. The songs of their last record 'Water Wrackets' are called Water 1, Water 2, Water 3, Water 4, Water 1 (reprise) and Water 2 (reprise). This might seem boring at first, but Bitchin Bajas show with their analogue synths and organs how interesting and exciting repetition and getting deeper into the structures of sounds can be. Psychedelic music in its full power.

The night will be opened by Lucrecia Dalt a Colombian artist residing in Barcelona. She released the amazing record Congost in 2011, that you just keep putting back on. Her live shows make the old barrier between studio and stage fade away.  With her voice and expanding the register of her bass with many electronic artefacts she creates enveloping mental states and ambiences that will surely enchant the audience next friday!

Wednesday 11th of April: Ensemble Economique (Not Not Fun/USA) + Bradien (BCN)
The last record of Ensemble Economique on Not Not Fun directly catches you. His music has mystery all over it, while at the same time not compromising on the quality of the music. It is refreshing with so many acts that try to create mystery by aestethics, to find one that manages to achieve that by just making music. Maybe his music is summarized best by the name of one of his songs: "To Feel The Night As It Really Is"

Bradien was the first live show one of us saw in Barcelona. The show consisted of instrumental music a la Yo La Tengo that makes you smile and appreciate live instrumental music again. It will be great to relive this feeling again in two weeks time. Bradien collaborated with Bill Wells, John Giorno and are now having a side-proyect with the catalan poet Eduard Escoffet.

Friday 13th of April: Umberto (Not Not Fun/USA)
Umberto makes music that sounds like horror-movie soundtracks. The good thing is that his music undoubfully has groove and depth by incorporating krautrock and drone elements into his songs. His label Not Not Fun everybody knows by now, and everybody should know Umberto, who seems to become one of the most succesful artists of the label.
