New relaunch of ibizaA-Z.com & Ibiza NOW Magazine

July 30th, 2007

You may have noticed that the past few weeks there hasn’t been much happening on the ibizaA-Z.com – now you can see why: We’ve spent an intense few weeks working on the new site.

We’ve teamed up with the islands ibiza NOW magazine to bring you the first Ibiza website entirely constructed around one google map… You can use either ibizaa-z.com or ibiza-now.com.

Ibiza NOW has been going for over twenty years and is the only full colour glossy magazine catering to the islands English Speaking population.

Ibiza NOW gives us access to, and therefore you, a huge archive of content and photos and the help of a monthly magazine – access to all the events on the island, details of where and when they are and a team of experienced reporters and contributors. It’s a work in progress but we hope you like it.

Panoramio.com

July 26th, 2007

Panoramio.com, recently bought by Google is a great site for uploading pictures and geotagging them so they appear in google earth. Unfortunately Telefonica have apparently changed (or not checked) their normal dns servers in the past few days which has resulted in anyone on Telefonica adsl in Spain not being able to currently access panoramio.com or any of their million or so photos in google earth.

If you are wondering what to do, change your dns settings to a free & open dns:

208.67.222.222
208.67.222.220

pics from Mark Ronson & Band @ Bar M, Ibiza tonight

July 25th, 2007

p7241955l.jpg

Another great night – it gets ridiculous to say this but it was – after the politics of monday night (for another time) it was nice to get back to music

Though we have to admit we personally weren’t enamoured by their first single, the New Young Pony Club turned it around and we ended up converted. Another reason to judge a band by their live show and not by the radio.

Having watched the soundcheck earlier today of mark ronsons band we have to admit we thought it would be a funk out a la p-funk, prince, jam session (and thats no bad thing) – but it wasn’t – it was a great night of a bunch of musicians who seemed to really enjoy themsleves – and the audience went for it… highlights a plenty – (being a bit of a rocker, ‘california’ was for me the stand out) – it was pure enjoyment – after hearing the crowd last week sing to kasabian it was great to hear them do the same tonight

how anyone on this island can use politics to stand in the way of great live music is beyond us:

anyway, first off is this one, which i love:

pics from Kasabian at Ibiza Rocks tonight

July 17th, 2007

What can you say – we know its getting repetitive but it was another great night. We’re in a blessedly lucky position to see bands in such a small venue and such a great atmosphere. We wish you were here – even the mayor of San Antonio came down to have a gander…

Tomorrow (today) we’re going to try an experiment, so watch this space….

Anyway, as per the past 3 weeks here’s the initial pics from tonight. Click on the images for larger versions. (The next few days is going to be another night of Kasabian & Pull Tiger Tail, then LCD Soundsystem and then GO!Team at Es Vive, so it’ll probably mean a few choice photos and then decent entry(ies) into the new gallery over the next week. (Also we’re working on a completely new way of looking at Ibiza – if everything goes well we’ll launch on Aug 1st)

A typical sunday night in Ibiza…

July 16th, 2007

The lovely Lena had her opening exhibition at Atzaro tonight. Its difficult to describe what Atzaro is like, but just think of the most gorgeous setting you can imagine and its pretty much that. After that we went down to the opening of Baachus Restaurant in Santa Gertrudis.. where it seemed most of the Norths glitterati turned up to… But then if you have a completely open bar… It’s going to be one to watch though…

Some initial pics of tonight.
