A few of the concerts for Fallas 2009 were announced a few days ago. As always, these shows will be taking place in the Jardin de Viveros, and are completely free.
All of the concerts thus announced feature Spanish bands. On Friday, March 13th, Taxi and Presuntos Implicados rock the mic. And on Saturday, March 14th, you can get down to the sound of Seguridad Social and whatever Valencian band wins a competition called Circuit Rock 09. Seguridad Social is a popular band who started in the 80s, and had a huge hit called “Quiero Tener Tu Presencia” … a song whose words I memorized before I could understand the language.
There are a limited number of invitations available, and the method of obtaining one not yet been announced. The concerts are being sponsored by Cadena 100, who advise fans to listen to their station to learn how to get the tix. Clever bastards. As soon as we learn how to get the tickets, we’ll advise — and if you find out before us, please write a comment and share with the community!
UPDATE (06/03/09) I’ve found out, you can pick up invitations in the Cadena 100 Offices (Pasaje Doctor Serra, 2), El Corte Inglés, and the IVAJ (C/ Hospital, 2). Still no news as to what day you can pick them up … anyone else know?
Also — I’m pretty sure there will be another concert announced for Sunday, the 15th. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear what it is.
