Barcelona's Sonar Festival has finally arrived with XLR8R on the grounds, look forward to recap stories from the festival itself as well as from the city's many Off-week events in the coming weeks. On Friday, the Klockworks showcase looks particularly interesting to us with Ben Klock, Sterac, and Jeroen Search; and so does the Stroboscopic Artefacts Showcase with Lucy and James Ruskin among others.
On Saturday in XLR8R hq Los Angeles, Sunblock returns to The Standard hotel in downtown for an afternoon-into-evening rooftop fest with Joakim and a special secret guest from Detroit, while Dialogue holds down the LA fort at night with XLR8R alumni and recent podcast artist John Tejada.
Sunday is not at all a rest day for Brooklyn's Output with this weeks' on The Roof guests Chaim, Mikey Khoury, plus Ataxia, Jimmy P and Andrew Vogt in The Panther Room all night. Montreal's Piknic Electronik continues under Calder with Jacques Greene, and Vilify.
