Independent Chicago rock duo, Pinto and the Bean, will be performing this Tuesday, February 15th at one of my favorite venues, Double Door. The duo, described as "spicy voices wrapped in a lo-fi sound" will be sharing the night with Hemmingbirds, Tiny Bones and Jet W. Lee.
Doors open at 7:30PM and the show starts promptly at 8PM, so don't be late, take a date or mate and activate... a good time.
On Wednesday the 16th, Anthony Macias will be playing for Fearless House on www.fearlessradio.com The broadcast begins at 7:30PM (CST).
After a very successful night of great music combined with plenty of love and dancing at Maria's this past weekend (oh and you also missed out on receiving a beautifully crocheted red heart courtesy of birthday gal, Thelma Uranga of elstitchybitch), (((SONORAMA))) will be playing a special set at Cobra Lounge this coming Sunday, February 20th. These guys take their music seriously and have quite a unique arsenal of vintage tunes. If you've yet to hear a set, stop by on Sunday. Things get started at 9PM and there's no cover.
Here's a song I first heard through Charly Garcia of (((SONORAMA))) and I love it. You like?
Also that Sunday at Cobra Lounge, Proyecto Cantina will be holding our monthly writing session. If you missed the first one of the year, no worries, we're continually creating and brainstorming for new ideas, characters, story plots and more. Join us!
This past weekend I also learned that there is a documentary being worked on that includes Argentinian/Mexican cumbieras Kumbia Queers. Check out the mini-preview:
Conrado Trueba of Tru-Dar will be celebrating his birthday all week and we hope to join him on Saturday the 19th at Juniors for a night of all kinds of dance music including a special Depeche Mode set by Anthony Macias. Things get started at 9PM, no cover before midnight for girls (11PM for boys) and if you RSVP early enough you'll get a free drink ticket that night. Sweet!
I'll have more updates throughout the week as well as on the radio on Wednesday night (89.5FM WBEW, which can be streamed online at www.vocalo.org, 7:30PM CST) so stay Enchufado for more.
How was your weekend?
