Alameda, the beautiful semi-park overlooking downtown Lisbon, is often overlooked due to its location. Local non-profit Street Fest describes itself as based on the “idea of ​​boosting the capital’s squares and gardens, creating unique moments of good music and a very good atmosphere for a happier city!”
This weekend, they’re boosting the already unique area of Alameda with two days of good vibes.
Here’s how they describe it:
“Bring family and friends, dog and parakeet, a towel to spread on the lawn, and taste the different flavors in STREET FOOD roulette, to the sound of Ketzal, Azza, The Cool and Caffeine, and Lucky Club! Accompany this with a cold imperial and say goodbye to the summer in a perfect environment between food, music, and a small exhibition of craft projects of young entrepreneurs.”

Here’s how the graceful space in Graça that is Disgraça describes itself:
“A space where racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. behaviors are not tolerated. Thus, it reserves the right to prevent entry to police, judges, ministers, presidents, nazis, neo-Nazis, protonazis, nationalists, or any other vertical animal suffering from any kind of authoritarian or supremacist idiocy.”

This year, Disgraça turns four years old, and they’re celebrating.

They add:

The line-up:
ROZAVA (Czech Republic) – NEOCRUST / BLACK METAL.

EMPTY HALL OF FAME (Czech Republic) – HARDCORE PUNK.

FARSA (Lisbon) – POST-HARDCORE.

WEEKLY | BreakBeat Sundays at MusicBox | Cais do Sodré | TBD @ Musicbox | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

From MusicBox, the organizers:
“Breakbeat is a widely used rhythm in funk, hip-hop or bass music, characterized by being unpredictable and contrary to the usual 4/4, resulting in a much more energetic cadence.”
So, if you find yourself stranded on Pink Street on a Sunday night and looking for a much more energetic cadence, you know where to go. The BreakBeat night actually starts at 1 am, but you know how these digital calendars are.

ENTRY: TBD (usually a beer or two).

Here’s some breakbeat for ya.

Weekly | OPEN MIC | Acoustic Sessions at Crafty Corner | Cais do Sodré | FREE @ Crafty Corner | Lisboa | Portugal

“We’re just
two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
year after year.”
Roger Waters.

If you want to feel like you’re in a fish bowl with fellow lost souls but swimming in craft beer, come on down to the Crafty Corner any given Tuesday. Bring your guitar, or just your ears, and enjoy some open mic. The stage is highly visible from the street (increasing your level of “exposure” greatly), the 12 local craft beers on tap are constantly evolving (ask the bartenders, they’re cool), and chances of hearing “Wish you were here” are almost equal to those of hearing “Wonderwall”. Because, after all, this is downtown Lisbon.
The organizers put it this way:
“Open Mic Tuesdays at Crafty Corner – a weekly event dedicated to offering musicians the opportunity to play to a lovely audience in a beautiful location. These are acoustic or semi-acoustic sessions – those who dare get a free beer (or wine or soft drink!)”

Weekly | LIVE MUSIC | Jam70 at Anjos70 | Anjos | FREE @ Anjos70 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Depending on the job, Wednesdays can leave some people feeling like they’re in a jam. Anjos70 (no, despite popular belief we are not on their payroll; we just like the place) offers a way to get out of said jam with a weekly jam session.
Local musicians — André Jessen on drums, Jorge Figueiredo on bass, Bruno Vieira on guitar and Inês Laranjeira on vocals — will help you get through the work week with some live tunes. And, if you have a voice and/or an instrument, feel free to jump in on the jam.

There’s also a vegan dinner option at 18h, if that’s still your thing.

Weekly | WORKSHOP | DIY-day at Disgraça | Graça | FREE
Sep 25 @ 18:00 – 22:00
Weekly | WORKSHOP | DIY-day at Disgraça | Graça | FREE @ Disgraça | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

DIY has become a vague term in recent years. After all, we’re all in it together, right? Moreover, big business is all about buzzwords…
Nevertheless, with minimum wage persistently low and rent increasingly high, the times are riper than ever for some good old-fashioned do-it-yourself fun.
Disgraça, one of Lisbon’s best little-known venues for, among other things, light vegan dinners and heavy punk rock shows, is a pretty good definition of DIY (read their story here). That’s why every Wednesday they are hosting “DIY-day.” We’ll let them do the rest:
“We bring two really good things together – creating stuff AND hanging out with nice people.
Drop in any Wednesday from 18h!
Bring your own material!
NO DINNER but the bar is open and we will also provide some snacks.
To begin with, we will just learn from each other and so on, but in the future, there may be some workshops… bring your ideas!”

FREE ENTRY.

Sep 25 @ 23:55 – Sep 26 @ 06:00
Weekly | MUSIC | Hump Day: 70s DJs at MUSICBOX | Cais do Sodré | TBD @ MUSICBOX | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Hump day, for you second-language speakers, comes in part from the phrase over the hump.

Other than that, we think the organizers of this weekly boogie describe it better than we ever could:
“𝙃𝙐𝙈𝙋 𝘿𝘼𝙔 means Wednesdays. The high point of the week. It’s that day that tells you that the worst has passed and the best is about to come. The middle can mean virtue but it can also mean sin, pleasure, and freedom on the dance floor, listening to surprising groovy sounds that turn you up and work like a desert mirage, giving you the strength you need to get to the oasis that is the weekend.
This weekly party is an invitation to celebrate just because. And because Lisbon is the coolest place in the universe, at least according to that hipster article in New York or whatever.
Wednesdays are the new Thursdays, or the old Fridays, or the future Saturdays, or whatever you want them to be. Come by MUSICBOX in Cais do Sodré and you’ll find that Wednesdays are your new favorite day.”

NOTE: They usually charge at the door, but not much, and it’s basically just a way to trick you into getting a beer.
Which you might need on hump day.

All we have to add is this stupid commercial from back in the day.

CONCERT | Yann Tiersen in Lisbon | Campo Pequeno | 30-40€ @ Campo Pequeno | Lisboa | Portugal

World renowned experimental musician Yann Tiersen makes a lot of people cry.
But, in a good way.
Yann has a new album. It’s called ALL. It’s quite experimental, and the first to be recorded in his new studio/ community center The Eskal (formerly an abandoned discotheque) on the small island of Ushant, his hometown.
Yann comes to Portugal this September to share ALL with you.
And maybe make you cry.

Tickets are already selling out; get yours here.

In the meantime, here’s something beautiful.

Every year in September a bunch of locals in the neighborhood of Carnide take part in a pilgrimage to the 400-year-old Luz Church (aka the Shrine of Our Lady of Light).
Feira da Luz (“The Fair of Light”) began as an extension of this.
Today, in the words of the organizers, Feira da Luz is “a platform for promoting the country’s best national music.”
A free live concert on Saturday, and then every Friday, Saturday, and one Sunday through September. This year includes some big names.

Sep 29 @ 23:59 – Sep 30 @ 06:00
WEEKLY | BreakBeat Sundays at MusicBox | Cais do Sodré | TBD @ Musicbox | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

From MusicBox, the organizers:
“Breakbeat is a widely used rhythm in funk, hip-hop or bass music, characterized by being unpredictable and contrary to the usual 4/4, resulting in a much more energetic cadence.”
So, if you find yourself stranded on Pink Street on a Sunday night and looking for a much more energetic cadence, you know where to go. The BreakBeat night actually starts at 1 am, but you know how these digital calendars are.

ENTRY: TBD (usually a beer or two).

Here’s some breakbeat for ya.

Weekly | LIVE MUSIC | Jam70 at Anjos70 | Anjos | FREE @ Anjos70 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Depending on the job, Wednesdays can leave some people feeling like they’re in a jam. Anjos70 (no, despite popular belief we are not on their payroll; we just like the place) offers a way to get out of said jam with a weekly jam session.
Local musicians — André Jessen on drums, Jorge Figueiredo on bass, Bruno Vieira on guitar and Inês Laranjeira on vocals — will help you get through the work week with some live tunes. And, if you have a voice and/or an instrument, feel free to jump in on the jam.

There’s also a vegan dinner option at 18h, if that’s still your thing.

Weekly | WORKSHOP | DIY-day at Disgraça | Graça | FREE
Oct 2 @ 18:00 – 22:00
Weekly | WORKSHOP | DIY-day at Disgraça | Graça | FREE @ Disgraça | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

DIY has become a vague term in recent years. After all, we’re all in it together, right? Moreover, big business is all about buzzwords…
Nevertheless, with minimum wage persistently low and rent increasingly high, the times are riper than ever for some good old-fashioned do-it-yourself fun.
Disgraça, one of Lisbon’s best little-known venues for, among other things, light vegan dinners and heavy punk rock shows, is a pretty good definition of DIY (read their story here). That’s why every Wednesday they are hosting “DIY-day.” We’ll let them do the rest:
“We bring two really good things together – creating stuff AND hanging out with nice people.
Drop in any Wednesday from 18h!
Bring your own material!
NO DINNER but the bar is open and we will also provide some snacks.
To begin with, we will just learn from each other and so on, but in the future, there may be some workshops… bring your ideas!”

Weekly | MUSIC | Hump Day: 70s DJs at MUSICBOX | Cais do Sodré | TBD @ MUSICBOX | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Hump day, for you second-language speakers, comes in part from the phrase over the hump.

Other than that, we think the organizers of this weekly boogie describe it better than we ever could:
“𝙃𝙐𝙈𝙋 𝘿𝘼𝙔 means Wednesdays. The high point of the week. It’s that day that tells you that the worst has passed and the best is about to come. The middle can mean virtue but it can also mean sin, pleasure, and freedom on the dance floor, listening to surprising groovy sounds that turn you up and work like a desert mirage, giving you the strength you need to get to the oasis that is the weekend.
This weekly party is an invitation to celebrate just because. And because Lisbon is the coolest place in the universe, at least according to that hipster article in New York or whatever.
Wednesdays are the new Thursdays, or the old Fridays, or the future Saturdays, or whatever you want them to be. Come by MUSICBOX in Cais do Sodré and you’ll find that Wednesdays are your new favorite day.”

NOTE: They usually charge at the door, but not much, and it’s basically just a way to trick you into getting a beer.
Which you might need on hump day.

All we have to add is this stupid commercial from back in the day.

Weekly to Oct 5 | FOOD AND DJ PARTY | Crepes, Beer, & Senhor Santos | Cais do Sodré | FREE @ Sama Sama | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

It’s happened to all of us:
It’s a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon in Lisbon, you’re nursing your hangover with a vegan crepe and a local craft beer. Life is good… yet, it still feels like something’s missing…
Well, that something is actually a someone, and none other than up-and-coming, Irish-made local DJ superstar Senhor Santos!

For the next few sunny Saturdays of summer, local food superstars Sama Sama invite the Senhor himself to spin some goodness at Crafty Corner, while they spin (or however you make a crepe) some more goodness next door for your eating, drinking, and chilling pleasure.

Saturdays from 12h to 16h, until October 5.

Bom Apetit!

*The music’s free, the crepes and beer cost money (but are rarely undevoured).

Weekly | DANCE PARTY | Caos no Sodré: Altamont Sessions | Cais do Sodré | FREE @ O Bom O Mau e O Vilão | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Saturday nights in Cais do Sodré can get quite chaotic. Trust us…
But that doesn’t mean that, amidst the chaos, you can’t find solace in some good music. Here’s what O Bom O Mau e O Vilão, the organizers of “Caos no Sodré,” say:
“Attention all Gunslingers: Altamont is pleased to present Rock as a fuse for a epic dancing night to the sound of The Beatles, The Stones, Hendrix, The Smiths, REM, Blur, Nirvana, Joy Division, The Clash, The Ramones, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, among many others! This Saturday night will get more flavor with the new Jameson Ginger and Lime! Come and try it.”

We’re not sure about the “Jameson Ginger and Lime” bit, but the line-up definitely sounds to be in good order.
