Concert - Event posted by elena
"I really like the Lato B" is the fun title of the musical extravaganza of our Alessio Vitali, usually sound engineer and friend of Cirkoloco, but also musician on his own and for "third parties" who, on the occasion of the final evening before our summer break , will present us in a "One man band" format a fascinating journey through well-known and lesser-known pieces of yesterday's and today's extremely diverse Rock artists, with an eye for some "hidden pearls", a selection of songs that usually almost nobody makes you listen, and for this reason unusual and intriguing. A friendly invitation to abandon for a couple of hours the usual beaten paths to the rediscovery of so much great music, in spite of the "mandatory" hits !!
