Bis Festival Warm Up
On the 15th of March 2014, Barcelona will be hosing the third edition of the BIS Festival, and to celebrate we will be holding a very special one night only warm up event a week before.
For all of those not familiar with BIS, BIS (Barcelona Independent Sessions) was born of the need to want to be positive at a difficult time for music due to the economic crisis. BIS is not only live shows, but also an independent record fair where they will meet local music promoters and labels. More info here: www.bisfestival.com
Music on the night:
Guest DJ: La Fonoteca Barcelona
Miguel Atienza & Oscar Fernández are La Fonoteca Barcelona coordinators, a musical platform that goes from 2011 organizing concerts of emergent groups in different rooms of the city. After more 30 gigs, they have demonstrated in repeated occasions his good smell at the moment to discovering future talents and have turned into a modal for programming to some of the best Spanish underground bands in the city.
Resident DJs: Pin&Pon djs
Rafa and Joan have in recent times been considered one of the top rated DJ combos by the public (in recent years chosen as the Best National DJ by the readers of the prestigious music magazine Rockdelux). Almost all of the most representative Spanish indie-circuit clubs have warmly accepted their eclectic and fun sessions where everything has its place (from pop, rock, techno, electronic, soul …) caring above all for the quality in the selection and not forgetting the technique, with help from the latest technology tools. They have participated in festivals such as the FIB Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, Sonorama, South Pop Sevilla and Isla Cristina, SOS 4.8 in Murcia, etc … Their maximum is good taste and good technique, trying to mix up from the beginning to the end what seems difficult to combine. They are concert promoters and are also known for their musical-journalistic facet (they co-direct a musical web Indienauta.com and maintain informed the listeners of their weekly radio show, “Rayos C en tus oídos”, of the latest developments in the national and international independent scene), and they’re also ahead of the label El Genio Equivocado (home of artists like Odio Paris, Grushenka, Aias, Las Ruinas, Les Sueques …). Someone said about them that they were “indie hard workers” and observing their CV this statement could not be more accurate.
Acoustic live: COACH STATION REUNION (Discos de Kirlian)
Under this name hides, for enough years already, Xavi Rosés’s most personal project (Fred I Son, The Epic Kind, Senderos …). Xavi has never stopped composing and recording in house, small miniatures of delicious softpop, janglepop and all the derivatives that he wants to be added. With Discos de Kirlian has edited 7 ” vinyl and album, last November. ”Lost album”16 songs that should have gone out time behind. A record to place, with humility and deep respect, next to “north marine drive” Ben Watt, “lazy ways” Marine Girls and “surf”, Roddy Frame. http://coachstationreunion.bandcamp.com/
