Music is an essential part of the IndieLisboa programme. From its section dedicated to documentaries about artists, musical genres and movements, IndieMusic, to the parties that will take place at Casa Independente and Musicbox, there are many films to see and songs to dance to during the first week of the IndiebyNight parties.
It all starts with Independent publisher Xita Records organizing a night with all their friends. Friday, May 27th, to celebrate one of this year’s sensational films, Amor, Avenidas Novas, Casa Independent will be literally filled with concerts and dj sets from one of the most energetic collectives in the city. Starting at 23h, Lucía Vives and Tomás Varela will be there to give a concert on the terrace and DJ Meias, Duarte Coimbra and Primeira Dama will play records in the main room and CAIXADURA will perform in the bathroom.
On Saturday night, the 28th, still at Casa Independente, we turn to hip hop, one of this year’s strong themes of IndieMusic, with the screening of two Portuguese documentaries about the way the genre is evolving in our country. The party is made possible thanks to Sleep 在 Patterns and Lost Soul, who are responsible for the soundtrack of the film Hip to da Hop, and Silab’n’Jay Fella. A night full of beats, in which it is very likely that b’boys and b’girls will show up to breakdance all night long.
And because we don’t rest on Sunday at IndieLisboa, the parties continue with an incredible throwback to the iconic Desolation Center, the mythical events that took place in Ronald Reagan’s America, organized by a generation of punk kids that sought rebellion, at the hands of its founder: Stuart Swezey.
It is also worth mentioning the unexpected dialogue between Ricardo Martins and Gabriel Ferrandini, on a night dedicated to the timeless musical universe of Milford Graves. Monday, April 30, at Casa Independente, curated by Nariz Entupido.
