May 25 @ 15:00 – 18:00
to July 27 | STREET MUSIC | Gypsy Jazz Jam Get Together | Areeiro  | FREE @ Jardim Fernando Pessa  | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Gypsy jazz is the type of thing that works well both indoors and out. With that in mind, as Lisbon gets warmer, local gypsy jazz aficionado Nuno Marinho and friends invite you to “bring your guitars, violins, and any other instruments you like, and hang out, have a drink, share thoughts, experiences or goals. Everyone is invited. Everyone is welcome.”
Head over to Jardim Fernando Pessa, every Saturday between 15h-18h, and bob your head to some gypsy jazz as you welcome summer.

Imagine this, but under the sun.

May 26 @ 05:00 – 09:30
to Sept 29 | MUSIC FESTIVAL | Somersby Out Jazz 2019 | Lisbon | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

The 13th edition of Somersby Out Jazz is back in Lisbon, which means you have the option of spending any given Sunday afternoon trough the end of September enjoying jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, rock, DJs, drinks, dancing, friends, and fresh air in some of the most beautiful gardens of the capital.
Free of charge.
Here’s what José Filipe Rebelo Pinto, founder of Somersby Out Jazz, says:
“Lisbon is trendy and still has a lot to offer. There are many green spaces scattered throughout the city with great potential, which have the capacity to receive an event of this size and that only benefit in being more dynamic. The aim of the Somersby Out Jazz is precisely to provide a diversified musical experience for Portuguese and foreigners while promoting the gardens in which it is held and encouraging their (re-)visitation.”

The Belém Tower Garden is the first outdoor venue to receive the 2019 edition, followed by:
Jardim do Campo Grande in June;
Jardim da Estrela in July;
Ribeira das Naus in August,
and Bela Vista Park in September.

Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Tuesday nights at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones Cinebar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

In Graça, what was once the first Portuguese cinema to project movies with sound is now a supermarket, but the founders of Camones Cinebar have been bringing back that creative spirit to the neighborhood. The bi-weekly Tuesday open mic night, hosted by local legend Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka of the Melting Pot, who regularly play our favorite Irish bar this side of the Channel, is still going strong through 2019.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h.
All ages and art forms welcome.

“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!)”

Cerveteca Lisboa is a local brewery that reminds us that beer in Portugal can actually be good. 2019 marks five years since they opened their doors, and, to celebrate, they have been partying.
Here’s what they say:
“2019 is the year. The years!
To celebrate, there will be a party every month until June, always on the last day of every month, with a live concert.
Because good music accompanies good homemade beer…
After the #1 and #2 events, with great jazz performances, we invited the Baltik Porter to event # 3 on March 31st.
Punk-rock brewery, so we never run out of motives to party!
We are waiting for you all for another exciting weekend.”

And check back here for #4 and #5.

Parabens, e saude!

Here’s a taste of some Baltik Porter.

May 31 @ 21:30 – 23:30
FLAMENCO SOUL CONCERT | Buika | Baixa | 30-80€ @ Coliseu | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The African-Spanish singer-songwriter Buika has been performing for over a decade, and her style is hard to pin down, particularly because she doesn’t shy away from experimenting with her compositions and the musicians with whom she collaborates.

Here are just some of the people singing her praises, per the organizers:

“Luminous…magnificent…superb! – The New York Times

Though compared to Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf, she sounds like no one but herself – Los Angeles Times.

Buika belongs to a lineage of artists that is found very rarely. She only knows how to sing with her heart ripped apart – Pedro Almodovar.

I love this artist! Pure Passion and the most gorgeous texture in her voice – Alicia Keys

And here’s a little taste:

The 13th edition of Somersby Out Jazz is back in Lisbon, which means you have the option of spending any given Sunday afternoon trough the end of September enjoying jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, rock, DJs, drinks, dancing, friends, and fresh air in some of the most beautiful gardens of the capital.

Here’s what José Filipe Rebelo Pinto, founder of Somersby Out Jazz, says:
“Lisbon is trendy and still has a lot to offer. There are many green spaces scattered throughout the city with great potential, which have the capacity to receive an event of this size and that only benefit in being more dynamic. The aim of the Somersby Out Jazz is precisely to provide a diversified musical experience for Portuguese and foreigners while promoting the gardens in which it is held and encouraging their (re-)visitation.”

The Belém Tower Garden is the first outdoor venue to receive the 2019 edition, followed by:
Jardim do Campo Grande in June;
Jardim da Estrela in July;

Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Tuesday nights at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones Cinebar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

In Graça, what was once the first Portuguese cinema to project movies with sound is now a supermarket, but the founders of Camones Cinebar have been bringing back that creative spirit to the neighborhood. The bi-weekly Tuesday open mic night, hosted by local legend Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka of the Melting Pot, who regularly play our favorite Irish bar this side of the Channel, is still going strong through 2019.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h.
All ages and art forms welcome.

“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!)”

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.

Duke Ellington.
