Buenos Aires Weekly Event Roundup: Sept 21 – 27

Posted on September 21, 2015 by Kevin Vaughn in VISIT BUENOS AIRES

A hand picked selection of our favorite things to see, eat, listen to, dance with this week in Buenos Aires.

See An Art Show

Festival, one of our favorite places in the city to sip on a Julep also happens to have a lovely art space on their second floor. Dinámica will be closings its September show this Wednesday, Espero is a joint show by Séverine Hubard and Pablo Rosales, the two created an art installation that transform the space using found materials from the city’s streets. For fans of the fanzine, Espacio Cabrera has put together a show this Friday with work by more than 30 artists, as well as  10 artists from around the world that will be displaying their sticker art. Canadian photographer Jimmy Ung has traveled via motorcycle from Montreal to Ushuaia capturing his entire journey with his camara. The Cooperativa de la Imagen will be showing a selection of his work titled “What Do You See When You See Me,” this Friday. Throughout the weekend, Zen Buenos Aires will be putting on an homage to Japanese dancer and choreographer Ko Murobushi with performances, talks and photographs from Murobushi’s shows.

Catch A Film

Buenos Aires has always been a city that celebrated cinema, the documenatry Un importante pre-estreno tells the story of a time when the government began censoring cinemas and how local art house theaters figured out ways to bend the rules. Nanni Moretti’s My Mother will be wrapping up it’s run at ArteCinema this Tuesday and Wednesday. The film follows an Italian film director that falls into an existential crisis in the middle of a film shoot following the death of her mother. The Lorca will be showing the German film Labrinth of Lies, about a young lawyer that uncovers a statewide conspiracy to protect the identities of prominent Nazi soldiers. For something a little lighter, the Clonacinepam Film Club will be showing Funny Ha Ha, the film that launched a million mumblecore flicks. This 16mm low budget movie follows the lives of a few recent college grads confronting the reality of adulthood.

Eat Good Food

BA Food Week comes to a close this week. The two week food event challenges a huge selection of restaurants to create three course fixed menus that allow you to try out some of the city’s fanciest establishments without burdening your wallet too much. Check out some of our favorites, including Unik, Sipan, Uco, Le Grill and La Rosa Nautica. If you’re looking for some goo ole American barbecue, closed door MASA will be taking a break from it’s usual taco menu to throw a pulled pork party this Friday with promises of craft beer and homemade barbecue sauces. Space is limited.

Let’s Party

You can always count on the guys from EhMusic! and local dj celebrity Andii Diedisheii to throw a good party. The always dependable Safari will be going on at Shamrock Basement this Saturday with dj sets by Dr. Trincado, Benway and Modex. Pro-tip, get in free before 3am clicking “going” on the fb event. If you’re looking for some tropical beats, Afrobeat band Tam Tam is a throwing a party in Villa Crespo cultural center El Oceanario, with a live projection of Youssou N’Dour live from London.

Check Out A Concert

Decisions will have to be made this Saturday, as two big shows are going on at the same time. Over at the Matienzo in Villa Crespo, Los Alamos will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of their first album. The band fuses rock, folk, blues and psychedelics – osea, be prepared to dance. On the other side of town at the beautiful CC Kirchner, the infallible Juana Molina will be playing together with Moreno Veloso. Molina is known for doing a bunch of shows then hibernating to recharge her batteries and work on new material, so check her in this unique rooftop theater. Onda Vaga will be playing an open air set this Sunday at the CC Konex before heading off on a cross continental tour. This cult folky rock band is always a guaranteed rock party. For some more tranqui options, check out Rolando Bruno’s psychedelic cumbia throwback band at La Oreja Negra on Wednesday, or the Hurricane Heart Attacks at the La Boca hipster bar Plasma on Friday or Javi Punga at the underground Abasto bar Mi Casa.
