The Minifestival de Música Independent de Barcelona started back in 1995 with the goal of bringing artists to town who it had been difficult to see live here. This year is their 19th edition, and they celebrate it with a bill that features Drugstore, a dream band of Brit pop fronted by Brasilian Isabel Monteiro, who we got to know with their self-titled 1995 album that celebrated its 20th anniversary with the release of 'The Best of Drugstore' (2013); The Electric Soft Parade, made up of brothers from Brighton Alex and Thomas White, who came on to the scene with 'Holes in the Wall' (2002), a debut album that was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize and who are now, after six years of silence, presenting their fourth album, 'Idiots' (2013); Nick Garrie, who was at the 2011 edition of the Minifestival and who penned the classic cult album 'The Nightmare of J.B. Stanislas' (1969). The bill is rounded out by the Madrid group Band à part; The Yellow Melodies from Murcia; and the Barcelona acts Ausells and Mariona Aupí.
