Touch the Wood: Performing for the first time in Rome tomorrow night is BlackBird Blackbird, hailing from San Francisco (go America!). explains, ‘His reverb-laden musical collages tend to lean towards anthemic, inspirational, and dream-driven themes.’ I have no idea what that means, but it’s a kind of synth-pop, electro/ambient…er… it’s just really good. That’s all you need to know.

//ZOO//: Remember our interviewee, Pietro, the aspiring notary? Well guess what? He also plays the drums for Roman group TESTAINTASCA. Check out a couple of their original rock-y songs here. Apart from supporting Pietro and his band, two other bands (Il Movente and Loud South) will be playing, as well as a DJ set (Supermarket). This event is a great opportunity to discover some new music, so don’t miss it! (Plus Pietro says his band rocks hardcore and it will be ‘una selvaggia cavalcata nell’italia contemporanea….’)
Where: Big Bang – Via di Monte Testaccio,22
When: 10 PM
Cost: Free before 11 PM, 5 euro w/a flyer or if you click ‘going’ on Facebook event, otherwise it’s 7 euro.

Heads Up: A lot of locales and clubs in Rome close for the summer season, because it’s just too hot to keep partying indoors! Some spots open ‘summer’ outposts, while some other finally open after a long winter of being closed.  Stay tuned for updates.
