El Bloque Depresivo

Led by Macha, lead singer of Chile’s legendary Chico Trujillo, here is a band that never really tried to exist, a band formed for the sole purpose of intentionally killing the vibe at concerts, of actually trying to bring down the audience. Playing music intended to make happy people cry.

Starting out as a jam between friends, the secret is now truly out the bag - these guys sell out every show they play in Chile, rooms packed out with thousands of people. Taking in Peruvian waltzes, classic boleros and lost Chilean gems, their repertoire slowly developed to focus on true tear-jerkers, those guilty pleasures you just can’t escape, the intensely romantic love songs of pure suffering that they just don’t make anymore.

This is not one to miss - an incredibly rare chance to see one of the best bands in Chile and get lost in the sounds of times gone by.

Date: 24th October 2018
Time: 8pm
Tickets: £15
Venue: Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG
