Prata da Casa

Pompeia, São Paulo

The best of what’s new

Project Prata da Casa in Sesc Pompeia has always a great selection of concerts, never with bands alike playing on the same stage. Up till now, nothing has turned me down. And better yet: it is free!

Besides the great quality offered, I like the support Sesc gives to alternative bands. They are holding the spotlight over artists that the public may not know. It’s a way of keeping the scene alive and displaying the work of those who don’t perform that often. There’s lots of bands in the lineup that are not from S.P.

I had been to Sesc Pompeia a lot recently because it has a fair price and perfect placement in the city. The fact that Prata da Casa happens on Tuesdays is very nice for when I have nothing to do! And it’s quite early: if it was later at night I wouldn’t be very excited to go.

I watch a quality show for zero bucks and before 10 o’clock I catch the subway and go home. That’s great!

Viajo highlights

The expression "prata da casa" (freely translated "family silver") is of uncertain origin, but there's some speculation that it is a comparison to what took place in bourgeoisie homes in 19th and 20th centuries: on special occasions families showed off what they had best, for example, serving the meal on a silver plate.

By extension, "family silver" (something like "home-grown talent" when dealing with people, sport players or artists) was then used to express "going with the best you've got".
