El Carmel, Vila de Gràcia, Poble Sec and El Clot will host a new cycle of free concerts that, under the name of Primavera als Barris and with the collaboration of Airbnb, will put on a total of 12 live concerts in different community centres and youth centres around Barcelona. The programme will start on April 30th and will go on for four weeks on Thursday evenings from 7.30 pm.
The concerts will start in the Espai Jove Boca Nord with the promising experimental and psychedelic-tinged pop of Redthread, Jugando con Kurt with their indie pop with a 90s vibe and the consolidated band Coriolà, that is still bathing in the success of its debut album “El Debut” produced by Miqui Puig.
The Espai Jove La Fontana will be the headquarters of the second evening on 7th May and the bands that will play on its stage have a common denominator: guitars. Punk rock by Zerschellt and post-pop-punk from the duo Cala Vento will accompany the local heroes Las Ruinas in what will be a very lively soiree.
On 14th May it will be the turn of the Centre Cultural Albareda for a more intimate evening. During which there will be a concert by Joana Serrat, who is without a doubt one of the Catalan voices of the moment, together with Annalogik with their sound that moves between swing, blues, country and folk and Patty Lodero, who plays a contemporary pop that delves into analogical and electronic sounds.
The last evening will take place in the Centre Cultural La Farinera del Clot and the brightest pop will be the order of the day. The Free Fall Band, that continue to present the excellent tracks from their second album “The Münster Sights”, will be joined by the all-girl band Rombo and Snooze with their eclectic indie pop.
This initiative will be organised with Airbnb, the online platform that connects people who are looking for accommodation with people who have space and with the collaboration of community centres and youth centres of Barcelona. With Primavera als Barris, Airbnb is backing an initiative that aims to bring cultural activities into areas that are outside the town centre making them part of the event. And the festival continues to increase the free concerts of Primavera a la Cuitat and adds this new activity to its programme, opening up into new local council establishments and backing the local talent that comes from those areas of the city.
