Cultura

In the University of Barcelona, the end of the academic year and the beginning of summer’s solstice has been highlighted for years –symbolically- by the beginning of Els Vespres. This cycle of free concerts, taking place during July at the garden of the Historical Building of the UB, has become a certain event for the lovers of the most interesting emerging music in the current scene. This year’s poster provides six music performances that range from Pol Fuentes’ art song, through the charismatic post-punk by Les Sueques, to Outer Space’s afro-beat rhythm. In addition, the cycle includes Tronco’s fresh pop, the playful verses by El Pèsol Feréstec, and the crooner elegant rock by the Canadian artist Calvin Love.

 

All concerts are free of charge and will  take place from the 4th to the 20th of July, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 21 h, in the garden of the Historical Building of the University of Barcelona (entrance is via carrer Diputació/Enric Granados). Prior to each performance, at 18 h, the audience can enjoy the terrace with a gourmet service (sandwiches) by Caravan Made, in the same garden.

Loyal audience and full capacity

Full capacity in all concerts in previous editions predicted that this year the events would be a success regarding the audience. In this twelfth edition, Els Vespres opt for promoting culture by sharing the most interesting emerging musical bands of the current scene.

Program:

July 4. POL FUENTES
Pol Fuentes presents his first solo album: Una nova guerra. Art songs, dramatic lyric essays and crude landscapes. He does so with a band and a brave staging.

July 11. TRONCO
Conxita and Fermí are two siblings that, with the help of a guitar, sing the songs from their first album, Abducida por formar una pareja, a collection of funny and fresh pop on the vital contemporary and repeating worries.

July 13. LES SUEQUES
An indie garage and post-punk quartet, with incisive irony, forcefulness and charisma, presenting their album Moviment. Songs that take action back with a poetic and ludic effort.

July 18. EL PÈSOL FERÉSTEC

July 20. OUTER SPACE
A septet combining afro-beat and funk rhythms from the sixties. They present their first album, Chase Across Orion, an original instrumental repertoire that evokes space and science-fiction with a mantric force.
