IF YOU GO TO BUENOS AIRES AND DON’T PARTY WITH LA BOMBA, YOU’RE BLOWING IT

Konex Cultural Centre is renowned for being a hub of Buenos Aires nightlife. But on Mondays, the effervescent atmosphere gets turned up to 11, at around the same time as La Bomba die Tiempo take to the stage.
This 17-piece improvisational drum band kick ass. They draw one of the Konex’ strongest crowds – perhaps the strongest crowd – and they play on a Monday night. Think about that. How many Monday nights go off in your town?
La Bomba die Tiempo (‘The Time Bomb’) have been holding down a residency at Konex for around four years, meaning they have perfected the art of banging drums and getting rowdy. And the old cooking oil factory setting of Konex is the perfect environment to lose some inhibition and cut a few shapes.
Each week also features a guest musician, from guitarists and sax players to DJs, so even regulars are guaranteed unique experience each and every time.
It goes down every single Monday, doors open at 7pm and tickets will set you back a cool AR$50.
