Plaça Reial 17, Barcelona, Spain
Towards the end of 2013, the Mas i Mas group – a company that has been at the service of live music and disco sessions for more than two decades – began working on a new line and identity for the Tarantos venue, creating TARANTOS CLUB. Until then, at night, the venue was a discothèque, focusing on eighties music, pop and more commercial sounds. With the appearance of Tarantos Club, the venue moved towards DJ sessions and bands from more alternative styles, like soul and surf, which were very well received by the Barcelona public. For 2015, the idea is to take the programme, directed by Viktor Ollé, DJ Kerito and Joe Cabana, a little further, linking up with current trends that make indie one of the hardest hitting styles of our time. So the BACK TO THE ROOTS cycle is being organised for live performances. These parties will be held once every two months and will bring to Barcelona two concerts by leading indie rock bands, providing the city’s audience with the best alternative rock made in this country.
