What’s on in Lisbon in July

How are you feeling? Tired? Have the Festas de Lisboa beaten you down? Well, there’s no time to rest because July still holds so much to do! The sun may be roasting and the streets drenched in beer, but we’re going to get out in search of a little bit of that thing we like to call Culture. Here’s a selection of some of the best events July has to offer:

Festivals

Enjoy the glitz and glamour of Estoril, the (not literal) birthplace of James Bond. And is there are more stylish way than at a classical music festival? The Estoril Coast Music Festival has been running since the ’70s and will return once more from July 5 to 27. Highlights include the Portuguese premiere of “Marco Polo” by Isabelle Aboulker and Vasco Negreiros debut of “Pilgrimages,” among many others. Some shows are free, so check out what’s on!

Fancy something a little more freeform than operas and classical concerts? The Goethe Institute of Portugal is hosting the 15th edition of the annual JiGG: Jazz in Goethe Garden, with tickets starting at just 3€ for the very young and very old (you know who you are). Performers are coming from all over Europe including Spain, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland between July 3 and 12.

Bairro Intendente em Festa returns once more to bring us a month of concerts, shows, cinema, exhibitions, workshops, conversations, fairs, and more. It’s free, it’s fun, and it’s for the whole family (until a little later at night).

Performances

Free events are fun events, and JA International Theatre’s set of three plays promises to tick all your cultural boxes. Monologue by Harold Pinter, Iphegenia-In Orem by Neil LaBute, and Medea by Neil LaBute will run each night from July 3 to 7, but book your tickets in advance, free tickets don’t stick around for long.

Music legend Gilberto Gil is touring Portugal with his show “OK OK OK,” directed by his son Bem Gil. It offers up “eight fabulous musicians,” and special guest singer Roberta Sá to celebrate a life of music. July 19, Belem. Be there.

“Parasomnia” by Patrícia Portela is a multimedia project hosted in the beautiful Reservatório da Mãe D’água das Amoreiras, which is worth visiting in its own right. According to the organizers, this is “an invitation to slowing down our bodies during the daily rhythm of our working days.” Sounds pretty nice right about now.

Activism

ImpactHub is hosting a debate, or, as they put it, an “informal conversation on climate and the arts.” This talk is focused on the impact artists can have on climate change, and while there is sure to be a mix of nationalities, speaking Portuguese will probably help you out.

Food & Drink

What’s jazzcore? What’s veganism? Am I hip and young enough to be part of this? Answer these questions and more as “Disgraça presents Albarte,” a jazzcore ensemble, alongside some tasty vegan grub. Monday, July 1: dinner at 20h, music at 21h.

You may think you like wine, but you ain’t got nothing on our man Dionysus. Luckily, you can tip a toast to this drunk deity on July 25 at Museu Lisboa: Teatro Romano, when there will be live music to accompany a tipple or two for Bacchus Hour.

Film

The first two weekends of July will see CineConchas screening open-air movies in Lisbon’s second largest public park, Quinta das Conchas. Completely free of charge, there is a mix of films so check out the lineup, grab some popcorn, and get comfy!

After great success in 2018, The Brazilian Embassy in Lisbon and ​​Cinema São Jorge join forces once more to bring you the second edition of the Brazilian Film Festival in Lisbon.

Six days of every genre, from recent years, all made by Portugal’s more talkative cousins from across the Atlantic.

The full program, showtimes, and more details coming soon, here.

NOTE: The theater usually has English subtitles, but a Brazilian friend might help.

Jun 30 @ 23:00 – Jul 1 @ 04:00
to Dec 31 | OPEN-CALL VIDEO ART SHOWCASE | Loopcave at Desterro | Intendente | FREE @ Desterro | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Are you a struggling videographer, artist, and/or filmmaker who wants nothing more than to have their images looped in a dingy little ungentrified after-hours hotspot in the heart of this great city?
If so, you’re in luck.

We’ll let the organizers take it from here:
“Year-round Open Call.
LOOPCAVE is a video art showcase dedicated to the loop organized in the Desterro‘s cave, in Lisbon. Fortnightly, with the purpose of opening the most diverse windows for the culture of the new artistic media, selected videos will be displayed via a monthly open call. The open calls are open every month until the end of the year, and two pieces are selected each month.

All videos must be submitted via email with the following info:
– name of the artist;
– small bio of the artist;
– link to the video;
– short description of the video (title, time, format and credits).”

Psst.
Hey you.
You like giraffes?
Of course you do.
Who doesn’t?

The Badoca Safari Park down in Alentejo has giraffes.
And a bunch of other cool animals.
And guided tours and stuff.
Basically, some text-free fun for the whole family.

Open every day (holidays included) until October 31st, 2019.

Jul 1 @ 10:00 – 20:00
to Jul 29 | ART EXHIBIT | M.C. Escher in Porto | Porto | 4-13€ @ Centro de Congressos da Alfândega do Porto | Porto | Porto | Portugal

If you don’t know what an impossible cube is, you might just be a square.
And if you think M.C. Escher has something to do with hip-hop… well, you’re right.
This Dutch master of illusion pretty much did with images what Tupac Shakur did with words, blowing minds and inspiring countless artists of every medium to this day. Ecsher is the definition of thinking outside the box, and, after a highly successful stop in Lisbon, 135 (yep, one hundred and thirty-five!) of the Master’s works call Porto home for the next few months.

Tickets and more info here.

Be there or be square.

Oh, and for the enthusiasts, here’s how to draw an impossible cube.

“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better-looking place.”
Banksy.

Well, the elusive Brit that is Banksy has definitely made the world better-looking. So that answers that question.
Then again, no one says that being a vandal and being a genius are mutually exclusive. For the next few months, the centuries-old former naval rope-making factory-turned exhibition center that is Cordoaria Nacional invites you to view some of the mysterious bad boy’s pieces out of their natural habitat. Over 70 works, including original pieces, sculptures, art installations, video, and photography.
Here’s what they add (those vandals):
“This exhibition, like all previous shows of Banksy’s work, is not authorized by the artist, who seeks to protect his anonymity and independence from the system.”

Opening Hours:
Sun to Fri – 10h-19h.
Saturdays- 10h-20h.
(Final entry one hour before closing).

to Jul 6 | BODY ART | Summer Tattoo Week! | Areeiro | 25€ @ Magnanimous Tattoo Studio | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

There was a time when tattoos made people stand out and seem weird.
But that was centuries ago…
In today’s crazy world, however, if you want to fit in and seem normal, it’s clear that you need a tattoo. And preferably more than one at that.
Enter Magnanimous Tattoo Studio.
Here’s what they say:
“As customers ask us a lot and we like to make your wishes come true, we are doing a week-long promotion for small tattoos at a discount price.
It will be necessary to make an appointment by private message (here): send us what you intend to do with size and body placement, so we can confirm if the Tattoo can be done on the promotion day, or we’ll give an estimate price to do it another time.
If you have any doubts or questions you can send a PM, or come by the studio.”

Happy inking.

VEGAN DINNER AND JAZZCORE CONCERT | Albarte at Disgraça | Penha de França | TBD
Jul 1 @ 20:00 – 23:59
VEGAN DINNER AND JAZZCORE CONCERT | Albarte at Disgraça | Penha de França | TBD @ Disgraça | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Albarte is a jazzcore ensemble.
Here’s what they say about themselves:
“Albarte is an experimental music trio operating from Rotterdam. Their music is a joyously harrowing display of urgent bass & sax noise, skewed jazz elements, frantic but meticulous drumming, and abrupt mood shifts. Albatre can be seen as part of a burgeoning micro scene of artists highlighting the crossover of improv, noise rock, and jazz currently made in Holland.”
Their new album is called The Fall of the Damned.

Disgraça (“disgrace”) is one of Lisbon’s coolest non-profit venues that relentlessly refuses to gentrify.
Here’s what it says about itself:
“A space where no racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic attitudes or discourses are tolerated. In this way, we reserve the right to prevent the entry of police officers, judges, ministers, presidents, Nazis, neo-Nazis, proto-nazis, nationalists, or any other vertical animal suffering any kind of authoritarian or supremacist idiocy.”

On Monday, Disgraça hosts yet another vegan dinner, with Albarte playing some tunes off their new album afterwards.

Dinner at 20h, music at 21h.

*Entry is donation-based.
Don’t be a dick.

to Oct 21 | MEDITATION | Sunset Rooftop Donation Yoga | Graça | 5€-TBD
Jul 1 @ 20:15 – 21:45
to Oct 21 | MEDITATION | Sunset Rooftop Donation Yoga | Graça | 5€-TBD @ Rua Damasceno Monteiro 21A, 1170-109 Lisboa, Portugal | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As far as titles of events go, we find that this one, despite having only four words, is pretty self-explanatory.
Some yoga.
Donation-based.
On a rooftop.
During sunset.
Is that a haiku…

Anyway.
Rachael, a Yoga Alliance RT200-trained local, is your guide, and she explains a little more:
“Hatha yoga practice with a panoramic view as the sun sets, final meditation under the stars. Friendly, relaxed class, taught in English, suitable for all levels.
Payment is by donation, suggested minimum donation 5 Euros.
No advance booking, just show up.
NOTE: THE CLASS TIME CHANGES AS THE SUNSET TIME CHANGES!
Come to the address 40 – 15 minutes before start time, press buzzer for floor 3. Please don’t arrive later than that; I go up to the roof just before the class starts, so after that I can’t let you in.
Bring your own mat, or if you don’t have a mat, a blanket or large towel, and warm clothes for the end. I have some blankets available. You can do the class in bare feet, or if you don’t have a mat you might prefer to do it in soft shoes. You might want socks at the end.
Sorry but I probably won’t see any messages you send me just before the class starts or once it’s started.
Bathroom and changing space available.”

A phoneless, semi sockless rooftop sunset on a Monday night?
Not bad.
Namaste.
Or something.

Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

to Aug 11 | ART EXHIBIT | Albrecht Dürer: St. Jerome Drawings from the Albertina Museum | Santos | 6 - 10€ @ Museu Nacional de Atre Antiga | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Albrecht Dürer was a German painter mostly working around 500 years ago. He made many paintings which, in turn, made history in the world of art.

One such painting is “Saint Jerome in His Study.”
Albrecht completed said piece in 1521. Then, while on a trip to Antwerp, he gave it to the secretary of a Portuguese factory as a gift. And so today, St Jerome hangs in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga right here in Lisbon, continuing to make history.

However, Albrecht had also made four preliminary drawings for St. Jerome, which somehow ended up in the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
That is, until recently.

For the next two months, said drawings are in Portugal for the first time, face to face with the iconic final work for which they served as inspiration.
Thus, you are invited to witness art history in the making, as well as to an up-close and personal study of Albrecht’s creative process.

ENTRY: 6-10€.
(see info on discounts here).

Jul 2 @ 10:00 – 17:00
to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | "Among Dinosaurs" | Príncipe Real | 5€ @ Museu de Historia Natural e da Ciência | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As you probably already know, dinosaurs once roamed the Earth— but did you know that they roamed around Portugal? The Museum of Natural History is taking an intensive look at different types of dinosaur fossils and inviting you to get to know the regions of Portugal where they are most abundant. Learn about excavation work, laboratory preparation, and identification of the Allosaurus fossils found in Andrés (Pombal) and maybe you’ll get a better idea about just what was going on at this time 150 million years ago, and what dinosaurs have survived until today.

Note: Weekend hours are from 11h to 18h

From the organizers:

Allosaurus: in what regions of the planet were they discovered? What characteristics did these Dinosaurs have? The answer to this question leads to the reflection about the diets of the dinosaurs, their life habits, and the adaptations necessary for their survival. Since Allosaurus is a theropod, we can not forget that some dinosaurs of this group evolved acquiring avian characteristics. We are therefore led to the conclusion that not all of the dinosaurs were extinct 66 million years ago.

If you’ve never seen the inside of a prison, then chances are you’re not in the U.S., let alone doing better than a lot of the planet.
Museu do Ajube aims to change that — but, don’t worry, not permanently, and for a mere three bucks.
Here’s their verdict:
“The Portuguese Prison Photo Project provides an insight into seven contemporary Portuguese prisons. From the largest and oldest, dating back to the 1880s, to the newest, opened in 2004.
The images, captured by two photographers — Portuguese Luís Barbosa and Swiss Peter M. Schulthess — show different approaches and perspectives, and are complemented by historical images from the national archives.”

Weekend hours: 11h – 19h
FREE ENTRANCE on July 25 (Pavilhão do Conhecimento’s Birthday)

From the organizers:
They live in our homes and streets, in our imagination and even in the music we listen to. And have been with us for thousands of years. But what do we actually know about them? How did they become so different from wild animals? How do they see, listen and feel the world?

The new temporary exhibition of Pavilion of Knowledge invites children and grown-ups to explore the world of their favorite pets. The exhibition is composed by three thematic areas: (“In their skin”; “In their head”; “In our societies”) adding a total of 47 interactive exhibits.

Produced by Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie – from Paris – will be open to the public until September 8, 2019. On the first Sunday of every month, the public is welcome to visit our science center with a dog and also to participate in our workshop programme Canine Passport. But we’re not stopping there: Feline Instinct workshop happens every second Sunday of the month and is dedicated to cats.

Are you ready to enter the amazing world of your favorite pets?

From the interwebs:
parasomnia (noun)-
a disorder characterized by abnormal or unusual behavior of the nervous system during sleep.

From the organizers:
“Parasomnia (by Patrícia Portela) is about the urgency of giving ourselves the time to waste daydreaming, sharing the space with one another without any goal, or just sleeping. An invitation to slowing down our bodies during the daily rhythm of our working days. It is a performance-installation spread across several rooms promoting the stimulation of melatonin and the appropriate vapors of somnolence for the induction of sleep and the practice of lucid dreams.”

Vapors of somnolence?
We’re in.

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!)”

Jul 3 all-day
to Jul 13 | FILM FESTIVAL | Herman Melville at the Cinema | Avenida | 3,20€ @ Cinemateca Portuguesa | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“There is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself.”
Herman Melville.

With that in mind, a good film, in order to exist, often requires a great book as its predecessor. And Mr. Melville wrote a few of those.
Herman would have turned 200 this August. To celebrate, and honor his contribution to the world of cinema, Cinemateca Portuguesa is screening six films from around the world and from different eras, each inspired by one of the adventurous wordsmith’s tales.
Starting with, you guessed it, Moby Dick (did you know that Ray Bradbury co-wrote the screenplay for that one?).

The Program:

July 3rd-
21h: Moby Dick (John Huston, U.S., 1956).

July 4th-
15h30: Moby Dick.

July 5th-
15h30: Billy Budd (Peter Ustinov, U.K., 1962).
21h30: The Enchanted Isles (Carlos Vallardebo, Portugal/France, 1965).

to Aug 11 | ART EXHIBIT | Albrecht Dürer: St. Jerome Drawings from the Albertina Museum | Santos | 6 – 10€
Jul 3 @ 10:00 – 18:00
to Aug 11 | ART EXHIBIT | Albrecht Dürer: St. Jerome Drawings from the Albertina Museum | Santos | 6 - 10€ @ Museu Nacional de Atre Antiga | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Albrecht Dürer was a German painter mostly working around 500 years ago. He made many paintings which, in turn, made history in the world of art.

One such painting is “Saint Jerome in His Study.”
Albrecht completed said piece in 1521. Then, while on a trip to Antwerp, he gave it to the secretary of a Portuguese factory as a gift. And so today, St Jerome hangs in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga right here in Lisbon, continuing to make history.

However, Albrecht had also made four preliminary drawings for St. Jerome, which somehow ended up in the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
That is, until recently.

For the next two months, said drawings are in Portugal for the first time, face to face with the iconic final work for which they served as inspiration.
Thus, you are invited to witness art history in the making, as well as to an up-close and personal study of Albrecht’s creative process.

ENTRY: 6-10€.
(see info on discounts here).

to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | “Among Dinosaurs” | Príncipe Real | 5€
Jul 3 @ 10:00 – 17:00
to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | "Among Dinosaurs" | Príncipe Real | 5€ @ Museu de Historia Natural e da Ciência | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As you probably already know, dinosaurs once roamed the Earth— but did you know that they roamed around Portugal? The Museum of Natural History is taking an intensive look at different types of dinosaur fossils and inviting you to get to know the regions of Portugal where they are most abundant. Learn about excavation work, laboratory preparation, and identification of the Allosaurus fossils found in Andrés (Pombal) and maybe you’ll get a better idea about just what was going on at this time 150 million years ago, and what dinosaurs have survived until today.

Note: Weekend hours are from 11h to 18h

From the organizers:

Allosaurus: in what regions of the planet were they discovered? What characteristics did these Dinosaurs have? The answer to this question leads to the reflection about the diets of the dinosaurs, their life habits, and the adaptations necessary for their survival. Since Allosaurus is a theropod, we can not forget that some dinosaurs of this group evolved acquiring avian characteristics. We are therefore led to the conclusion that not all of the dinosaurs were extinct 66 million years ago.

to Jul 29 | ART EXHIBIT | M.C. Escher in Porto | Porto | 4-13€
Jul 3 @ 10:00 – 20:00
to Jul 29 | ART EXHIBIT | M.C. Escher in Porto | Porto | 4-13€ @ Centro de Congressos da Alfândega do Porto | Porto | Porto | Portugal

If you don’t know what an impossible cube is, you might just be a square.
And if you think M.C. Escher has something to do with hip-hop… well, you’re right.
This Dutch master of illusion pretty much did with images what Tupac Shakur did with words, blowing minds and inspiring countless artists of every medium to this day. Ecsher is the definition of thinking outside the box, and, after a highly successful stop in Lisbon, 135 (yep, one hundred and thirty-five!) of the Master’s works call Porto home for the next few months.

Tickets and more info here.

Be there or be square.

Oh, and for the enthusiasts, here’s how to draw an impossible cube.

Jul 3 @ 10:00 – 19:00
to Oct 27 | ART EXHIBIT | Banksy: Genius or Vandal? | Belém | 6 - 32€ @ Cordoaria Nacional | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better-looking place.”
Banksy.

Well, the elusive Brit that is Banksy has definitely made the world better-looking. So that answers that question.
Then again, no one says that being a vandal and being a genius are mutually exclusive. For the next few months, the centuries-old former naval rope-making factory-turned exhibition center that is Cordoaria Nacional invites you to view some of the mysterious bad boy’s pieces out of their natural habitat. Over 70 works, including original pieces, sculptures, art installations, video, and photography.
Here’s what they add (those vandals):
“This exhibition, like all previous shows of Banksy’s work, is not authorized by the artist, who seeks to protect his anonymity and independence from the system.”

Opening Hours:
Sun to Fri – 10h-19h.
Saturdays- 10h-20h.
(Final entry one hour before closing).

to Oct 31 | GUIDED TOUR | Visits to Casa Museu Quinta da Esperança | Alentejo | FREE-3€ @ Quinta da Esperança | Cuba | Beja | Portugal

Wanna check out a 400-year-old mansion and experience how Portuguese rich people kicked it a century ago?
Well, you’re in luck.
Quinta da Esperança (“Farm of Hope”) is a centuries-old mansion in the heart of Alentejo that, in recent years, has been getting restored to its 19th-century glory.
Four floors, 200 rooms (25 of them open to the public), dozens of tile panels, frescoed mural rooms, an inner chapel, carvings, paintings, aqueducts, along with a sense of historical majesty, and possibly even a ghost or two.
Go experience how some things withstand the test of time. Need a ride? Lear about renting cars in Portugal.

Jul 3 @ 10:00 – 18:00
to Sept 29 | PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | The Portuguese Prison Photo Project | Alfama | 3€ @ Museu do Ajube | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If you’ve never seen the inside of a prison, then chances are you’re not in the U.S., let alone doing better than a lot of the planet.
Museu do Ajube aims to change that — but, don’t worry, not permanently, and for a mere three bucks.
Here’s their verdict:
“The Portuguese Prison Photo Project provides an insight into seven contemporary Portuguese prisons. From the largest and oldest, dating back to the 1880s, to the newest, opened in 2004.
The images, captured by two photographers — Portuguese Luís Barbosa and Swiss Peter M. Schulthess — show different approaches and perspectives, and are complemented by historical images from the national archives.”

ENTRY: 3€.

FREE ENTRANCE on July 25 (Pavilhão do Conhecimento’s Birthday)

From the organizers:
They live in our homes and streets, in our imagination and even in the music we listen to. And have been with us for thousands of years. But what do we actually know about them? How did they become so different from wild animals? How do they see, listen and feel the world?

The new temporary exhibition of Pavilion of Knowledge invites children and grown-ups to explore the world of their favorite pets. The exhibition is composed by three thematic areas: (“In their skin”; “In their head”; “In our societies”) adding a total of 47 interactive exhibits.

Produced by Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie – from Paris – will be open to the public until September 8, 2019. On the first Sunday of every month, the public is welcome to visit our science center with a dog and also to participate in our workshop programme Canine Passport. But we’re not stopping there: Feline Instinct workshop happens every second Sunday of the month and is dedicated to cats.

Are you ready to enter the amazing world of your favorite pets?

Jul 3 @ 11:00 – 20:00
to Jul 6 | BODY ART | Summer Tattoo Week! | Areeiro | 25€ @ Magnanimous Tattoo Studio | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

There was a time when tattoos made people stand out and seem weird.
But that was centuries ago…
In today’s crazy world, however, if you want to fit in and seem normal, it’s clear that you need a tattoo. And preferably more than one at that.
Enter Magnanimous Tattoo Studio.
Here’s what they say:
“As customers ask us a lot and we like to make your wishes come true, we are doing a week-long promotion for small tattoos at a discount price.
It will be necessary to make an appointment by private message (here): send us what you intend to do with size and body placement, so we can confirm if the Tattoo can be done on the promotion day, or we’ll give an estimate price to do it another time.
If you have any doubts or questions you can send a PM, or come by the studio.”

Happy inking.

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
Jul 3 @ 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.

JA International Theatre presents a staged reading of an interlaced adaptation of 3 plays-

MONOLGUE by Harold Pinter

IPHIGENIA–IN OREM by Neil LaBute

MEDEA by Neil LaBute

that coast the uncanny edge of living memory on the distant shores of the unresolved past.

Set in a dive bar in the twilight zone of memory, where the blues play in scarlet hues, a bartender polishes glasses as she trades tender barbs and lethal affections with the spectre of an old friend, a travelling salesman finally confronts the looming ghosts of the past that loom high in his rear-view mirror and a young woman recounts a dark tale of twisted heart and ruptured innocence that must ultimately be reckoned with in blood. Three jagged memories interwoven with the music of desperate anguish, as redemption seems only one drink away.

Cast : Pat Butler, Dan Cotterall, Myriam Santos

Adapted & Directed by Suresh Nampuri

Jul 3 @ 21:00 – 23:59
to Jul 7 | MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE | Parasomnia by Patrícia Portela | Rato | 5€ @ Reservatório da Mãe D'água das Amoreiras | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

From the interwebs:
parasomnia (noun)-
a disorder characterized by abnormal or unusual behavior of the nervous system during sleep.

From the organizers:
“Parasomnia (by Patrícia Portela) is about the urgency of giving ourselves the time to waste daydreaming, sharing the space with one another without any goal, or just sleeping. An invitation to slowing down our bodies during the daily rhythm of our working days. It is a performance-installation spread across several rooms promoting the stimulation of melatonin and the appropriate vapors of somnolence for the induction of sleep and the practice of lucid dreams.”

Vapors of somnolence?
We’re in.

ENTRY: 5€ (tix here).

Weekly | MUSIC | Hump Day: 70s DJs at MUSICBOX | Cais do Sodré | TBD
Jul 3 @ 23:55 – Jul 4 @ 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.
