I’ve been dying to get back to Mexico City since I first went there a couple years ago. I’m headed there today (primarily to attend the SEM conf) and will be staying through the weekend, and I’m excited to report that in addition to #sem09 I’ll be playing a couple gigs!
Big thx to my colleague in matters ethnomusicological and DJ-wise, the mighty Ripley, for working with Ricardo/Nimbo to put these together. I’d have been psyched to simply attend some interesting music clubs/parties in MX, so actually playing a couple takes the cake. Go, go, great bass coaster!
Anyway, I’ve got a plane to catch shortly, so gotta make this quick. Here’s the deets for any of you who might happen to be in DF or Puebla this week. (I’m amazed and honored to say that I actually do have some readers there! Hope to link up with y’all.)
First, in Mexico City, tomorrow (Thursday) night — a free event @ Salon Calavera (Tacuba 64):
Followed, Friday night, by some sort of house party, out in San Pedro, Cholula (Puebla), a place I’ve wanted to visit for a while, at least since discovering some TCK MEX there —
I’ve got to admit that I’m remarkably proud in these cases, odd as it sounds, to represent — according to the flyers/websites — “el vecino del norte” as well as “Massachusetts”!
