Grandparents are back
On Saturday 2 May, the Grandparents of Nothing play in Buenos Aires. It seems like news from the past, but not: we are talking about what is going to happen during 2020. A new band formation, with Miguel Abuelo‘s son and nephew as members, will tour Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico. In it, they will include the usual classics and unpublished songs.
“ Monday morning”, “Things mine”, “American Tuning”, “Hymn of my heart”, “Meditate sun”, “Go a more”, “Chalaman”, “Zig zag”, “Thousand hours”, are some of the topics that we all remember and that will be part of the shows. In addition, the band is recording new songs. The new album, Luces y Bengalas, will be released shortly, with unpublished material and several songs composed by Miguel Abuelo.
