One of the most successful bands in Brazilian rock, Ira! took new flights with the album "Psicoacústica", released in 1988. After a show sold out on the last 01/04, at Teatro Bradesco, in São Paulo, the group led by Nasi and Edgard Scandurra has already scheduled a new date: August 11th, at the same location.

At the show, in addition to presenting live the repertoire of the cult album, the group, formed by Nasi (vocals), Edgard Scandurra (electric guitar), Johnny Boy (bass) and Evaristo Pádua (drums), rounds off the show with the greatest hits and classics from their more than 40-year career.

After the commercial success of “Vivendo e Não Aprendendo” (1986), their second album, which featured songs that would never leave the band's repertoire, such as "Dias de Luta", "Envelheço na Cidade" and "Flores em Você" (which was the soundtrack of a soap opera), the Ira! did not settle down and conceived the conceptual “PSICOACÚSTICA”, misunderstood at its launch, but which became cult in the following decades, appearing among the 100 greatest albums of Brazilian music, in a list prepared by Rolling Stone magazine in 2007.

With diverse references, ranging from the film "O Bandido Da Luz Vermelha", to samplers and scratches that bring a unique sound to the record. For those who lived through that time, it is impossible not to remember the 3D glasses that came with the vinyl.

The presentation, of course, will feature historical tracks, such as "Farto do Rock 'N' Roll", sung by Edgard Scandurra, a reflection on the search for "other sounds, other beats, other pulsations", a kind of synthesis of "Psicoacústica "; "Receita para se fazer um herói", a reggae song about the poetry of the Portuguese writer Reinaldo Ferreira, whose authorship was discovered years later, after a curious imbroglio involving a colleague of Edgard Scandurra's in the Mandatory Military Service, which resulted in the following inscription on the cover of the album : "Esteves, where are you?"; "Advogado do Diabo", a mix of rock, rap and maracatu and many others.
