We Are Not Alone
By Matthew Duffield
Barcelona may be famed for its outdoor parties during the Off Sónar week from the picturesque setting of Poble Espanyol to hotel rooftops and beach bars. These are all well and good, of course, but sometimes you just want to party later, party harder and not spend a small fortune along the way.
For those who like their techno funk-fueled, jackin’ and acid flavoured, City Hall in the heart of Barcelona is the place to be on Friday, June 15th. Ellen Allien is your host, and she’ll be bringing the vibe of her We Are Not Alone party to town. As well as being one of the most successful artists to emerge from the Berlin techno scene and founder of the BPitch Control label, she’s also no stranger to this city and has played regularly at nights like Nitsa.
Joining Ellen Allien for the Barcelona edition of We Are Not Alone will be Aurora Halal and Silvie Loto alongside Boston 168 playing live. The recently restored grandeur of City Hall, complete with a new Martin Audio sound system, should be just the spot too.
