Nacho Vegas, Teatro Lara, Madrid, Spain (April 3rd, 2013) – Mp3

LHR

Cuando Nacho Vegas sacó su primer disco en solitario allá por el 2001 me lo regaló un amigo. Recuerdo escucharlo un par de veces, pero la verdad, en ese momento no me dijo nada. Ahí quedó en la estantería, rodeado de otros muchos discos durante casi diez años. Un buen día y casi por casualidad cuando estaba ordenando la estantería de los discos, haciendo sitio para nuevas compras fui a dar con él… no sé por qué, pero fui hasta el salón, lo metí en el reproductor de cd y ya nada volvió a ser lo mismo, desde esa primera escucha el disco me enamoró, fue lo único que sonó en mis distintos reproductores durante el siguiente mes. A partir de ahí fui recuperando el resto de discografía, poco a poco, para poder saborearla… pero cómo había estado ignorando a Nacho Vegas durante tantos años???? No sé, cosas inexplicables y actos inexplicables, pero por suerte su música se ha convertido en algo muy importante para mi.

Sharon Van Etten, Teatro Lara, Madrid, Spain (September 27th, 2012) – Mp3

LHR

The first show from Sharon Van Etten I attended was at Primavera Sound Festival 2012, I couldn’t stay for the whole concert as there was another performance starting before this one finished. Anyway, I don’t think Sharon was really into it (the show was pretty early in the afternoon), so I was hoping she visited Madrid at some point because I really liked her album “Tramp” (one of the best albums last year IMHO).

The show was really outstanding, and this time Sharon was really interacting with the audience and singing beautifully. The show was a little over 1 hour, but I really had a great time and I’m really looking forward her next record and tour. I’ve only been a couple of times to the Teatro Lara, but this is now one of my favourite venues in Madrid, it’s quite small sized but the sound was really clear and the audience pretty respectful and quiet (which is very very rare in Madrid, or in Spain in general for that matter).

Destroyer, Teatro Lara, Madrid, Spain (July 19th, 2012) – Mp3

Destroyer

I missed Dan Bejar’s show in Madrid in the Día de la Música Festival in 2011, I was at the Lykke Li show that was at the same time, a tough decission but I was playing Wounded Rhymes non stop at that moment. Luckily, Destroyer came back one year after to play in a much better setting (a small theater, quite better than a big festival ground at 7 in the afternoon). I had been listening to his last record quite a lot during this past year, and I liked it more and more over this time, I had enough time to relisten to his earlier records, so I was quite ready for this show. Despite it starting quite late it didn’t disappoint a bit, with the set being 1 hour and 20 minutes long. Most of the songs of his latest realease were played, and some of the classic hits. And Dan was really into it, putting a lot of energy and emotion in the performance. All in all a great set I hope you enjoy.
