el rock es mi forma de ser: Argentine Rock 101

No Lo Soporto, July 2007

To go to Buenos Aires and not see at least one Argentine band play live is akin to not eating a steak, trying an alfajor, buying a leather jacket, etc.

 Okay, so maybe it’s not the same thing. But I’ve always seen Argentina through the lens of music. Back in 2005, night after night of concerts culminated in a 40+ page paper on the indie rock scene in Argentina since 2000 (a copy or two is floating around the city, if you’re interested). Soon after, I started my weekly radio show Side A/Lado B based out of New York City. By 2006, I was writing mini-guides for music magazines and giving tutorials to writers at the New York Times.

 Now, I promised Wes that Soy So Lindo wouldn’t be so rock-heavy (overlaps in our music tastes are few and far between), so I’ll get it out of my system and then we can move on.

These are the top ten bands in Argentina today

Want to listen to them? Stream old Side A/Lado B shows.

 If you want to do it right and actually, you know, see these bands live, the best place to start is Soy So Lindo’s Calendar.

From June through August, there are great ciclos happening at Niceto (on Thursdsays and Fridays), C.C. Ricardo Rojas (Fridays), and la Ciudad Cultural Konex (every other Tuesday). See you there!?!– REBECCA
