Music of Changes: Surviving the Spanish Recession. November 2012.
Roles: Producer, Reporter, Editor.

A year ago, Diego Rodríguez, M.A., was made redundant in his office. He found himself without any savings or job prospects, so the 27-year-old had to pack his bags, and left his apartment in Madrid to move back to his parents’ in his hometown, Vigo, an industrial city in the northwest of Spain.

While he adjusts to the changes and figures out the next step, he takes comfort in the forgotten pleasures of home: more quality time with the family, familiar streets and old friends – at least the ones that are left, since they belong to the so-called “lost generation” of Spaniards: appalled by the financial crisis, they have fled to try their luck elsewhere.

But one of the things he is grateful for is revisiting his favorite bars, among which is La Iguana, a beloved concert venue that has been around since the 1980s.

La Iguana is a legend in Vigo’s nightlife, but recently the crisis has begun to touch them, too. The once raging bar has become an almost-empty space, and rumors of closing have started to spread around the city. Owner Billy King mentions a drop in revenues, but stays positive that “this is just another bump along the road, and we will overcome it as we have before.”
