RIO DE JANEIRO × PERFORMANCES ON TRANSPORTATIONS

Rio de Janeiro approves cultural performances on trains, subways and ferry boats

Cariocas and tourists who use the Rio de Janeiro transportation systems daily are now able to enjoy cultural performances at the stations and inside the trains, subways and ferry boats. The performances, that help people kill time during the trips, are now approved. That is determined by an act approved by the state legislators, sanctioned by state governor Luiz Fernando Pezão and published in the Official Gazette on September 26th. In the coming days, the Department of Transportation, which regulates the concession holders that control the transport modals, will announce the regulation of the act.

The time approved for the performances will be from 6am to 11pm on weekdays and from 7am to 11pm on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. The act states that the performer cannot charge the users of the public transports, who may spontaneously donate during the performances. Based on the wording, it will be up to the concession holders that provide these services to create a registry of interested persons to perform. However, the only purpose of this registry is to organize the time for the performances, though they are not allowed to prevent unregistered people from performing.

Currently, the subway concession holder is the only one keeping a cultural program in their stations, although they do not allow performances inside the wagons. According to MetrôRio, the Palco Carioca project allocates spaces in three stations – Carioca, Siqueira Campos and Maria da Graça – for musical performances on weekdays, from noon to 8pm. Registration to participate in the project is free and may be made online at www.metrorio.com.br/Cultura/PalcoCarioca.

Maggie Rogers’ “Give A Little” Out Today

If you haven’t heard of Maggie Rogers yet..it’s about time you seriously do.

Just earlier today, the 24-year old music artist released her new song “Give A Little” that is available for listening on Spotify and the song is available for download HERE

Produced by Grammy-award winning producer, Greg Kurstin, Rogers’ new upbeat song exhibits a soft touch of romance as it is aground by darkness and defensiveness.

Kurstin has previously worked with Adele, Sia, Foo Fighters and many others so it’s to no surprise that his help with Rogers’ “Give A Little” is such a success already.

Ever since Rogers released her first album The Echo back in 2012, her talent in the music industry has evolved and blossomed into something more beautiful every time. This change is evident throughout her music over the course of years as she gains an even larger fan base during the process.

Interested in seeing where Rogers will be showing? She will be the headline for two sold out shows at Koko in London which takes place the 29th and 30th of August, following her performances at the U.K.’s Reading and Leeds Festival at the BBC Radio 1 Stage.

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is yet another event where Rogers’ will be performing at which takes place on the 22nd and 23rd of September.

Did you think that was the last of Maggie Rogers’ appearance this year? Think not! She will also perform as a co-headline at All Things Go Fall Classic which is one of Washington D.C.’s LARGEST signature festivals. By her side on October 6th is also LPX (Lizzy Plapinger).

A fan of hers already? We knew you would. You can all her tour dates right here –RSVP fast!

As for her “Give A Little” song, stay tuned in the next upcoming weeks for her official music video!
