  • ACL 2007 wrap up

    Update: Pictures available here. You gotta love Austin. The festival this year was great. I arrived with my friend Luis on friday around 4:30pm and the first band we saw was Queens of the stone age. I had already seen them two years ago when they opened the NIN concert in San Antonio and I […]

  • Me gusta Colombiana, me gustas tu

    I just got back from an amazing concert by Manu Chao at Stubbs. Lucia got an extra ticket and asked me if I wanted to buy it. The tickets were selling for $70-150 on craigslist so I was thinking of not going. Here are some pictures from the concert!

  • Requiem

    Last night I went with Lucia to see an amazing show called Requiem perfomed on an abandoned building that Intel was building a few years ago, but never finished it. The show is very beautiful and dramatic and it has great music and lights. I highly recommend seeing it. I think tonight is your last […]

  • Lets get Kinky!

    Last night Kinky performed at Emo’s (on 6th St). They have a really good show and their electro-lounge-funk style makes you wanna dance all night. The best part is that before the concert the organizers announced that Jumbo was going to be playing on Nov 2nd and they told the crawd that whoever knew the […]

  • Confesiones de un ex-fan de Maná¡

    Hoy voy a confesar algo que me causa verguenza contar, pero que igual lo comparto con mis lectores para que vean que el errar es humano: Confieso que a la edad de los 13 o 14 años fui con mi hermanita y sus amigas a un concierto de Maná. Fué mi primer gran concierto y […]
