Arca de Triumph: Venezuelan experimental electronic artist Arca released Kick at the very end of last year — a fan-voted compilation of the five album Kick project. She’s been active since 2011 and she out out her debut album, the excellent Xen in 2014. You truly truly never know what you’re gonna get from Arca, and that will likely hold true at the Belasco at the weekend.

According to the press release, “To celebrate the anniversary of the release of the KICK series Arca asked her fans, via her mutants1000000 Discord channel, to create the definitive Kick compilation.  The contest received thousands of submissions from her fanbase, the ‘Mutants,’ with the final tracklist (see below) representing her fanbases’ favorite songs from the entire five-album KICK series. ”

“Arca recently returned from a string of headline festival performances at Primavera in São Paulo, Santiago, and Buenos Aires. It was her first time headlining major festival stages in these cities since the release of her lauded KICK series. Not only did Arca command some of the weekends largest audiences in each city, she was greeted by hundreds of devoted Mutants upon her arrival, solidifying her rapid rise in the continent and as El Universal put it, ‘Muy esperada, sus presentación era uno de los actos musicales que mayor curiosidad le causaba a la prensa especializada/Highly anticipated, her presentation was one of the musical acts that caused the greatest curiosity in the specialized press.'”

Arca de Triumph: The event takes place at 9 p.m. on Saturday, February 25 at the Belasco.
