  • Watch “White Stripes: Under great white Northern Lights”: In 2007 the legendary American duo White Stripes toured Canada. Besides playing the usual venues they challenged themselves and played in buses, cafés and for Indian tribal elders. Music video director Emmett Malloy followed the band and managed to capture both the special tour, extraordinary concert versions of the band’s minimalist, raw, blues-inspired rock songs and the special relationship between the extroverted Jack White and the introspective Meg White – a formerly married couple who for a long time claimed to be siblings. The film makes striking use of the band’s concert colors: red, white and black. Watch this documentary for free at 20:00 at the Polaroid bar, Carrer Còdols 29, Metro Drassanes (L3).

  • Visit the factory of the Three Wise Men: Fabra i Coats will be transformed into the factory and the toy store of the Three Wise Men. The toy factory is half closed, and the kings are not there, but with lots of secrets, music and dances the remaining workers will invite the kids from Barcelona to sneak into the factory. As you cross the secret entrance, past a mountain of ancient letters, visitors will be able to see how the elves’ helpers of the Kings work to classify all the letters in the magic post office, they will discover the surprises that hide between the mountains of packs of the tiles of gifts. And watch the elves work to have everything ready for the most magical night. The Fábrica de los Reyes de Oriente is open on 28, 29 and 30 December and 2, 3 and 4 January from 18:00 to 21:00. Free entrance. Fabra i Coats, Carrer de Sant Adrià, 20, metro Sant Andreu (L1).
