MODORRRA (March 5-6 Bilbao)

Reading the name of the festival is difficult to believe, but even fashionists that pronounce R as G love this festival. Among the innovations, the prize for the best emerging designer and for the best non professional model. Don´t doubt it. Became a Modorrrist!

KOKEIN

When a band is a real “band” they don’t need to publish a record every year to keep talking about them. When a band is a real “band” we hear their name mentioned in concert schedules instead of in radio top lists. If we take a look at all the kilometers they have traveled through since they began, we can consider Kokein a real band. Their album “Lotuta egon arren” is going to be showed on... February 25 in Ketarri, Getaria.

THE FATHER OF THE SPIRIT

Will Eisner has passed away. The one that gave the name to Eisner Comic Award was born in the USA in 1917 and created the �graphic novel� concept. His smart and elaborated scripts displayed a world in which the simplicity of superheroes was overcome and where social criticism and an inside world were showed. Life doesn�t last forever, but what you do in a life does. And so do Eisner�s comics.

ISSEY MIYAKE ON THE WEB

Moshi moshi. We just took a look at the spring collection of the Japanese. We like his clothes although we, in our world of TheBalde, would never wear those sophisticated clothes. However, we like the way he shows them in his web page.
