Mika concert in Barcelona

Mika concert Barcelona

Back in 2007, Mika was one of the big names playing at the Summercase Festival, but his gig was cancelled due to illness eventually. I'm not a big fan but was willing to see him life at that time.

Lots of people don't know who Mika is, but everybody knows the song 'Rain' and they 'love' it. So, if you love it, go and get your ticket for Sunday, Mika is playing in one of the biggest venues in Barcelona, Palau Sant Jordi.
  • When: Sunday, April 18; 7:30 pm
  • Where: Palau Sant Jordi [map]
  • Price: 30€ - 45€

Sonic Youth live at Razzmatazz

Sonic Youth

Sonic Youth are survivors from the 80s. They never followed the rules in terms of structure or melody as their contemporaries so their rock is anything but conventional. And this time they come with their 16th new album 'The Eternal'.
Sonic Youth loves Barcelona, well, I guess, because i think this is their fifth visit since 2003.
  • When: Sunday, April 18; 8:15 pm
  • Where: Razzmatazz [map]
  • Cost: 35€
Are you planning to go and see them? Tell us how it was!

Fortuny, the magician of Venice

La Pedrera Casa Mila

One of Barcelona's most famous buildings, Gaudí's Casa Milà (also known as La Pedrera) holds, until June 27, "Fortuny, the magician of Venice" free exhibition.

My life's goal is art. Mariano Fortuny Madrazo, was a multitalented man who was not called 'the Little Leonardo' for nothing, to whom Proust referred as 'the magician of Venice', and whose work encompasses areas as diverse as painting, engraving, stage design, lighting technology, photography, textile design and fashion.

More info on the artist, timetables and guided tours at the Caixa Catalunya's Social Work website.

El Real Madrid lidera la clasificación gracias a su total de goles a favor así que tras este partido puede haber cambios en el top de la tabla. El partido se juega en el Santiago Bernabéu así que reúnete en un bar con amigos o en casa y disfrutad del espéctaculo por el que seguro se paralizará la ciudad.
