Comedy, Stand-up

Following last year's hit UK tour and direct from the Edinburgh Festival, Tom Stade is back with a new show, 'I swear to...'. Join the Canadian comedian as he attempts to figure out exactly where he fits into this emerging new world of feelings and FaceTime. Exactly when did he and all his stuff become vintage – and why didn’t he see it coming? Armed with his usual swagger and playful sense of mischief, Stade explores these generational conundrums, and a whole lot more.

Film

L'Alternativa: Black Mother

It's time again for the L'Alternativa Independent Film Festival, this year celebrating its 25th anniversary. Tonight it's 'Black Mother', which takes you on a spiritual exploration through Jamaica. Soaking up the island country's bustling metropolises and tranquil countryside, the film introduces you to characters who call Jamaica home. 'Black Mother' channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history but existing in the urgent present.

You've got a new date within the season of symphonic concerts that the Orquesta Sinfónica del Vallés presents in the Palau de la Música Catalana on Saturday evenings.

Based on a script by Iván Morales, Rubén Gimeno directs the orchestra as they perform fragments from soundtracks such as 'Star Wars', 'Alien', 'ET', 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind', 'Planet of the Apes' and more.

YASS

'New name, same vibe.' That's how the energetic and festive bunch at Locamente define YASS, the new Saturday night party that takes the baton from Ultrapop. With a special taste for danceable music and cheesy fun as a starting point, this soirée looks like it'll be one of the biggies on Barcelona's LGBTI nightlife scene in the coming years, a freshly baked classic filled with pop and house music.
