Just because the weather forecast for the weekend is all wind, rain, and almost-freezing temperatures doesn’t mean that you can’t go out. soy so lindo’s got our top picks for the weekend, all taking place in the warm indoors.

Saturday, August 4: Mel Mann + Kirlian + the Baseball Furies

Nevermind the recent buzz Mel Mann has been getting in the indie rock scene, if there’s a reason to go to this show, it’s because it’s at the Hotel Bauen, our favorite venue in the entire city. Think spiral staircase with black and white piano keys adorning the wall, leather banquettes, and disco lighting.

Auditorio Hotel Bauen, Av. Callao 360, 21 hs, $8

Sunday, August 5: Maratón Alejandro Jodorowsky:

An entire day of Jodorowsky films equals a whole lot of trippiness. All Movie Guide describes his films as, what might have resulted if Luis Bunuel, Michelangelo Antonioni, and George Romero had all dropped acid and made a movie together.” Sounds about right. Films start at 2:30, 5, 7:30, and 10 p.m.

Sala Lugones, Teatro San Martin, Corrientes 1530

Still hungover from last night’s Dia del Amigo festivities? soy so lindo’s got the cure: more parties!

Saturday, July 21: Lugar Sonado

Our favorite indie gallery, Belleza y Felicidad, is throwing a party this evening. Think pretty art on the walls, sweet sounds courtesy of DJs Pareja, Aldo Benitez, and Ismael Pinkler, and (unlimited?) drinks to help wash it all down. Belleza y Felicidad, Acuna de Figueroa y Guardia Vieja, 19hs puntual, $5.

Sunday, July 22: Sombras Chinas

No more lazy Sundays, now that Villa Diamante’s throwing a new Sunday evening party. Straight from the horse’s mouth: “Conversar, bailotear, con una copa en la mano. Tomar un impulso, antes de empezar la semana.” Right on. El Nacional, EEUU308, San Telmo, 19-23 hs, entrada libre.

Yes, the long weekend holiday is supposed to be about Argentina’s independence from Spain, but the best things to do this weekend are all from the U.S. Go figure.

Saturday, July 7

“El afinador de terremotos ,” the second feature film from the Brothers Quay, is as superbly made–albeit creepy–as ever. We could go over the details of the plot, but it’s really besides the point; all you need to know is that the film mixes their trademark animation with live action. See this poetic science fiction narrative in all its glory at its premier tonight.

Malba, Avda. Figueroa Alcorta 3415,

Sunday, July 8:

On Wednesday, July 4th, Zizek celebrated independence U.S.-style. This Sunday, it does the same for Argentina. And like all things Argentine (streets, flags, steaks, etc.), it has to be bigger and better. Thus, Super Zizek. DJs King Coya & El Trip Selector, Oro11 (in what may be his last major show in Buenos Aires), Bomboclap Soundsystem, and Douster take over the main room at Niceto with the only thing they know– cumbia, dancehall, hip hop and reggaeton.

Niceto Club, Niceto Vega 5510, Palermo
$15 hasta 2 am, luego $20
Lista de descuento $10 hasta 2 am

Need something to do in the afternoon? Check out soy so lindo’s calendar for a complete listing.

Is your wanderlust out of control? soy so lindo’s global edition of mi querido diversión is just what you need. Here’s how to feel like you’ve been to Chile and Brazil without stepping foot outside of the city this weekend.

Saturday, June 30: It’s almost too good of a night for music– there’s homegrown bands El Mató A Un Policía Motorizado (playing at the Roxy) and Los Alamos (playing at Petecos in Lomas de Zamora). But our pick is Javiera Mena, the Chilean smart-pop musician, whose one-peso show at C.C. San Martin is worth attending for the price alone.

21 hs, Ciclo Nuevo!, Centro Cultural San Martín, Sala Enrique Muiño, Sarmiento 1551. 4to Piso, entrada $1.


Sunday, July 1: Nothing says “weekend” like a good street fair. Especially a Brazilian street fair. Eat, drink, dance and be merry at this weekend fair in Palermo Viejo. And try to forget that you’ll be back to work in just a few hours.

Costa Rica between Malabia and Scalabrini Ortiz, Palermo Viejo, Saturday and Sunday.

debe ser un día muy especial

Rosario Bléfari is not a musician. She’s not an artist. She’s not an actress. She’s not a director, nor a screenplay writer, nor a journalist.

She’s not any one thing; instead, she’s all of these things and more.

We’re careful with hyperboles and the way we use them, but Bléfari warrants each and every one of them. She was part of the beloved 90s indie rock band Suárez, inspiring the current generation of underground bands that dot Buenos Aires’ underbelly. After the band broke up, she began her solo career, with every album besting the previous one. Her songs are true pop gems, three-minute reminders of why you fell in love with rock music in the first place.

And even if indie pop isn’t your thing, you’ll still find a reason to join the cult of Bléfari: she stared in the film Silvia Prieto, wrote a book of poetry, and wrote, directed, and acted in the play “Somos nuestro cerebro” and “¿Somos nuestros genes?” Oh, and in her spare time she writes articles for magazines like Plan V, urging readers to take action in protecting the environment. 

So it’s no surprise that for soy so lindo’s first interview, we chose Bléfari, our icon of cultural production in Buenos Aires.

After the jump, read about why Bléfari’s latest album, Misterio Relámpago, is getting a proper release party a year after it came out, how Argentina has effected her music, and where she goes for the best pizza in town. And don’t miss her album release show tonight at 21 hs at La Trastienda!

The forecast for the weekend’s looking good (well, it does when we look out the window), so there’s no excuse to stay inside. But if you need that extra push, here are two things you can’t miss this weekend:

Saturday, June 23: “Origines: La obra temprana de Antonio Segui” at C.C. Borges is closing on Sunday. Don’t miss the seventy-odd paintings by the artist from Cordoba. C.C.  Borges, Viamonte esq. San Martin.


Sunday, June 24: Brush up on your David Lynch with “Corazon Salvaje.” Perhaps better known as “Wild at Heart,” this is actually one of Lynch’s tamer films. So you won’t have to watch it five times to “get” it. Malba,  Avenida Figueroa Alcorta 3415.
