La Bomba del Tiempo

I remember back before arriving in BA and talking to friends about my trip.  Everyone had wonderful suggestions of cool places to visit and different sights to see.  One attraction came up constantly and we knew before stepping foot in Argentina that we would be going to La Bomba del Tiempo.  Bomba is a drum show that happens every Monday night in Almagro at the Ciudad Cultural Konex.  I was afraid that it would not live up to the hype, but I could not have been more wrong.  It was one of the best shows I have ever been to.  The music is lively and fun and the crowd gets really into it, dancing the whole entire time.  I love how the concert is outside, and didn’t even care that it was raining the second time we went to the show.  We also got lucky on our second visit, as the guest performer for the night was an incredible guitarist who started playing Blackbird to the fast tempo of the drums.  La Bomba del Tiempo was amazing and is for sure one of the best things to do while in Buenos Aires.
