I’m From Barcelona at Southpaw (08/07/07)
Definitely one of the most fun shows I saw last year was I’m From Barcelona at Southpaw, so it’s great news that this little 22 piece outfit is making its way back to Brooklyn in the spring. They’ll be playing at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple with Thao Nguyen and The Get Down Stay Down on May Day (May 1). By the way, tickets for this show are exceedingly reasonable $10, and they include a free New York Magazine subscription to boot. For those of you on the other side of the river, they’ll also be playing a sure to be sold out show at Maxwell’s on April 25, 2008.

Q: Why are they called “I’m From Barcelona”?
A: The lead singer of the band of is named Emanuel Lundgren which closely resembles the name Manuel. Some of you may also know that there was a character called Manuel on the classic British TV show Fawlty Towers. Manuel was, of course, from Barcelona, hence the name of the band. True story.
