The smokescreen over the city has made it a bit tough for outdoor activities this weekend. While there are still the parks, the zoo, downtown window shopping, and futbol to be played, this week’s Weekend Buzz will focus on the best BA has to offer indoors. So get out your best outfit, dust off that debit card, and enjoy the climate-controlled indoor pleasures that this South American cosmopolitan smorgasbord has to offer.

Check out Grupo Krapp at El Porton de Sanchez on Friday at 11:00 pm. Don’t let the name fool you, this group is for real. Comprised of musicians, actors, and performance artists, Grupo Krapp is known for its outlandish outfits, controversial subjects, and brilliantly executed music and dance. Their new performance, “Olympica”, is running every weekend, and looks to be a semi-permanent fixture in Buenos Aires. Check out what the New York Times has to say about the group. Tickets are $25 pesos. El Porton de Sanchez is at 1043 Sanchez de Bustamante.

Go to a Photo Exhibition at the Centro Cultural Borges. The works of Swiss artist and photographer Rene Burri will be on exhibit at the Borges until Sunday, so Friday and Saturday are the last nights to catch the show. Burri was known for covering some of the biggest events of the 20th century, and has a famous photo of Argentine icon Ernesto “Che” Guevarra. Tickets are $13 pesos. The Centro Cultural Borges is located on the corner of Viamonte and San Martin.

Go Clubbing and “Don’t Kill the Beats” at Uni Club. “Don’t Kill the Beats” is a large-scale party being held at Uni Club this Saturday night. The party is being promoted as a mix of electro, rock, disco punk, nu rave, pop, retro-rock, new wave, disco-themed extravaganza, and there’s an open bar from 10:30 til 12:00. Tickets cost $15 pesos before 2 am, and $20 pesos after. Check out the club’s site here. Uni Club is located at 3360 Guardia Vieja.

Rock out at Compass, the Weekly Cycle at Club Niceto in Palermo. This is a weekly indie rock and pop event that features new exciting artists performing live. On Friday, Alfonso El Pintor and Pablo Dacal will be the headliners, with resident DJs Fabian Dellamonica and Juanma Grillo moving the dance-floor later in the evening. The party starts at midnight, and admission is $15 pesos. Club Niceto is located at 5510 Niceto Vega in Palermo.

And remember boys and girls, there’s always a new restaurant to try, a boliche to wait on line at, a party to crash, and the old indoor classic, a night at the movies. Have fun, be safe, and I’ll check in next week when the haze clears, and you’re ready to roll to the great outdoors once again.
