...and things are as busy as usual. Last time 'round these parts La Santa Cecilia was going to be in town. They rocked the Green Dolphin and to their relief completely won over the Ely Guerra crowd at a club we won't mention. The Luna Blues Machine opened the night for La Santa Cecilia and they were fantastic! I'm so glad they were able to perform that gig. Hopefully it means a lot of new opportunities for them. Fingers crossed!
Ely Guerra was also able to present most of the new songs on her new album 'Hombre Invisible' but we've now learned that she deserves an actual music venue that can accommodate her range, her sound, her sexiness. Yes. She's one sultry lady. Meow.
Some of us also made it to Smart Bar where the boys of (((SONORAMA))) showcased some of their new finds as they closed out the night for Toy Selectah and Zizek. Toy Selectah is a machine! He's so fun to watch. Overall, it was a really crazy, fun, scary, exhausting, delicious night. All in one. I like those kinds of nights, without the scary part so much.
Unfortunately this week the Fidel Nadal concert was postponed until further notice. I was really looking forward to that show. Oh well.
La Barranca, however, will still go on as scheduled this Saturday, October 9th at El Rey Ballroom (35th & Western) alongside local rock band [.DESCARGA.] and BA & Los Extraños Unidos. Tickets are still available so make sure to visit Red Star Shows for more information.
Tonight, tune in to 89.5FM for a new installment of the Seven in Seven, sponsored by Enchufate. I'll be playing music from ZUR, Batista and Nortec Collective Presents: Bostich & Fussible. Si si. Good times, good times. If you're outside Chicago, you can listen online at www.vocalo.org at 7:30PM (Central Standard Time).
I'll see you on the radio.
