Founded in 2003, they have three albums behind them, and for this occasion they will perform several new songs as an announcement of a new album.
She Loves Pablo has been one of the pillars of the domestic alternative scene for almost 15 years. Their fat, blues-riffed riffs, penetrating vocals and powerful rhythms, combined with explosive and precise performances have earned them a reputation as one of the best live bands ever.
