Barcelona Sounds and Internet radio station scannerFM have joined forces to present a series of Friday and Saturday night sessions at City Bar, the stylish bar and restaurant at the five-star, boutique Grand Hotel Central. We’re talking chic surroundings and a cool atmosphere; perfect for socializing after work on a Friday or before clubbing on a Saturday.
The music is often an afterthought at hotel events, but it’s the opposite at City Bar, and scannerFM have programmed an excellent selection of local DJs with an eclectic music policy. There’ll be no lounge music, thankfully; instead you can expect to hear everything from indie and electronica to disco and boogaloo edits, and plenty more besides. Dancing is not obligatory but certainly encouraged.
On Friday, April 17rd it’s Indiescabreados (“Angry Indies”), aka irreverent duo Ángel Jiménez and Dani Bermúdez, who became Twitter-famous (to the tune of 50,000 followers) for their informed and sardonic wit trained at the indie community, skillfully leveraged into full-blown careers as DJs. As This Is Spinal Tap taught us, it’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.
