Ultra local records
Fancy bringing home a souvenir that isn’t the typical ‘I went to Barcelona and all I got was this lousy T-shirt’? Then it’s time to head to Ultra local records in Poblenou. This tiny vinyl haven mainly stocks LPs and EPs from local Catalan artists and labels as well as great second hand records from Spain and the rest of the world. Why not pop down on a Friday night when they organize acoustic sessions of unsigned or up and coming local groups, every week at 7pm. They also organize a mini festival called Micro-Clima Sound during the week of Primavera Sound as an alternative to the big names found on those stages in Fòrum, giving smaller, Calatonia-based groups the chance to showcase their talents. With the passion they have for their work, the owners Carme and Raul are sure to help you find something that will really impress the folks back home. A lot more than a fake Barça shirt would, that’s for sure!
