Nosoträsh is an essential band to understand indie-pop sung in Spanish. This all girl band was born in the mid nineties in Gijon and has released some of the most brilliant Spanish indie music of the last thirty years. They have released four LP’s, various EP’s and singles to date.
In the series of concerts Bilbao BBK Live Bereziak the band will perform the album “Popemas”, their masterpiece from 2002, chosen by Rockdelux best album of the year and one of the best of the decade. This outstanding album has even been played by the legendary John Peel from the BBC. In this special occasion Cova, Natalia and Beatriz, the original members of Nosotrash, will be joined on stage by Mar Alvarez (Pauline en la Playa), Pedro Vigil (Penelope Trip, Edwin Moses) and Eva Diaz. FIUM FOTO will be in charge of the exceptional visuals.
The Basque singer songwriter Jabier Muguruza, a good friend of the band, will perform a couple of songs.

Blind Melon will be in Barcelona, Santiago de Compostela, Bilbao and Madrid to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first album “Blind Melon”.
Their homonymous rock album “Blind Melon” was released in 1992; back then, the band toured with artists such as Neil Young and Lenny Kravitz until the band stopped touring due to Shannon Hoon’s (front man) drug problems. In 1995 the band published “Soup”, an alternative rock album, but during the tour Hoon was found dead from an overdose.
After the release of their third album “Nico” the bands split up.
Their cursed band status and their facility to mix sounds from the 60’s and 70’s with grunge made them a cult band and representatives of what it’s been known as Generation X. In 2006 Blind Melon reunited with Travis Warren as front man and released ‘For my Friends’.
The presentation tour for the album included the Azkena Rock festival and now the band is back together celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album with performances in Barceiona, Santiago de Compostela, Bilbao (within the series of concerts Bilbao BBK Live Bereziak) and Madrid.
