MUSIC: Primavera Pro 2017 Welcome Dinner








Conclusiones extraídas de la pasada velada el 31 de mayo en la cena inaugural del Primavera Pro 2017:

1. Como estrategia de marketing está bien, aunque podrían haber traído a Frank Ocean.
2. Lo de la fideuá igual sobraba.
3. El inglés del ilustrísimo Conseller de Cultura de la Generalitat de Catalunya da un poco de miedo, como todo él en general.
4. Había mucha gente demasiado mayor para ir del escenario Mango al Heineken sin que les diera la ciática. Sospechoso.
5. Demasiadas escaleras sólo para subir al servicio. Sospechoso parte 2.
6. A Chris Kaskie, presidente de Pitchfork Media, se le otorgaba un premio por dejar de ser presidente de Pitchfork Media dentro de dos meses. #legend #goals
7. Le dieron un trofeo en forma de flor de loto mutilada, inspirado en la flor de loto de Yoko Ono en Chicago. Chris Kaskie, presidente de Pitchfork Media durante los dos próximos meses, quiso besarlo, pero le daba miedo que se le apareciera el espíritu de Yoko Ono y se lo comiera.
8. Chris Kaskie, presidente de Pitchfork Media durante los dos próximos meses, quiere ser becario en el Primavera Sound. Que mande su CV y a ver qué le dicen.


BONUS TRACKS:

9. Podrían haber dado más comida.
10. Dios no son los Beatles sino Drake, que está en todas partes, hasta en los sitios donde está Chris Kaskie, presidente de Pitchfork Media durante los dos próximos meses.
11. A la gente del mundo de la música le encantan las patatas fritas de bolsa metidas en mini-paperinas.
12. Hacer networking debería estar mejor remunerado.



Conclusions drawn from the evening of 31st May at Primavera Pro 2017 Welcome Dinner:

1. As a marketing strategy it was okay, although they could have brought Frank Ocean.
2. Maybe that fideuá wasn't necessary at all.
3. The English of the most-high Culture Minister of the Generalitat de Catalunya was a bit scary, just as everything about him, in general.
4. There were too many people too old to walk from Mango stage to Heineken stage without starting to suffer from sciatic pain. Suspecious.
5. Too many stairs just to get to the toilet. Suspecious part 2.
6. Chris Kaskie, president of Pitchfork Media, was awarded an award for leaving Pitchfork Media in two months. #legend #goals
7. He was given a mutilated lotus flower-shaped trophy, inspired by Yoko Ono's lotus flower sculpture in Chicago. Chris Kaskie, president of Pitchfork Media for the two upcoming months, wanted to kiss it but was afraid that Yoko Ono's spirit might appear and eat him up.
8. Chris Kaskie, president of Pitchfork Media for the two upcoming months, would like an internship at Primavera Sound. Let him submit his CV and see what happens.

BONUS TRACKS:

9. More food could have been offered.
10. God isn't the Beatles but Drake, who's everywhere, even at places where Chris Kaskie, president of Pitchfork Media for the two upcoming months, is.
11. People in the music industry love regular crisps put inside cone-shaped paper bags.
12. Networking should be better paid.
