Rio Alternativo

6 06 2013

Sao Paulo has always been Brazil’s alternative hotspot with its rock scene, Rua Augusta hipster hangouts full of tattooed girls and nose-ringed boys, Voodoohop parties, street art and this weekend’s art-sex PopPorn Festival.

But Rio? The city of easy living, beach bodies and samba and bossa nova (in the priveleged Zona Sul at least)?

Surprisingly, Rio also its own alternative scene centred around Copacabana sweatbox club Fosfobox, and including the BootieRio and Buati parties. But now there is also a new new punk/metal hotspot Praça de Bandeiras in the grittier Zona Norte.

A whole new side to the “Marvellous City”.
