On August 5th, in Villaviciosa (Asturias), we played an unforgettable show under the stars. We debuted our new line-up, with Juanjo Zamorano on bass, and rode one last time on our Folk & Roll Tour merry-go-round.
Well, no… we didn’t fall into a blackhole! I still can’t understand how, but 6 months have gone by and they felt like 3 weeks. Time flies when you’re busy!
The news: we are playing a show in Asturias this week. And we are recording new songs.
Concert: August 5 – Villaviciosa, Asturias (Spain)
This Friday, August 5th, we play in Villaviciosa (Asturias), at 22:00. Free admission, a fine weather forecast, a very nice outdoors venue. What else can you ask for?
The place is the courtyard of the Ateneo Obrero. More info in our shows calendar.
Recording new songs
That photo above is our own recording studio: Satélite Estudios, where we are finally recording new songs. I will tell you more about them in September, but if the stars align, we might have a couple of international guests.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see pictures and maybe some videos of the rehearsals, concert, and studio…
It was a wonderful night. SantaCecilia is a spectacular venue, and we could set up in a circle, just like we do for our rehearsals, surrounded by the audience.
The SantaCecilia staff, with Manolo Egocheaga at the helm, did their best for us during two days of intensive work. The production work by Eduardo Cosmea (Movusic) and Béznar Arias (Norte Sur) was impeccable. Andrés and Chis from Musical Marcos did an outstanding job with the sound, just like Javi Otero with the lights.
And the most important part, David Pando and his team of 5 cameras did a wonderful job, accomodating all the special circumstances of the show, without any interference, and adding energy and creativity.
We hope to have it ready soon. The show will be for our patrons only, but we will release one or two songs on our website; and with a little luck, we might get it aired on TV.
The shows in Barcelona and Madrid were wonderful. It was tricky, with planes, vans, cars, taxis, trains and buses, but we made it. We had to do it and we did it. Tomorrow (Friday 23) we finish our tour in Bilbao.
We also have a little story to tell you. I thought it’d be a good idea to invite U2 to our show in Barcelona. After all, they had the day off, and I’m sure they had nothing better to do… 😀
They didn’t come, but they had the generosity of returning the invitation, so the next day we went to their show. We didn’t get to say hello, but at least we had a drink on them.
The guest pass from U2
Their show, which we watched from general admission, very close to the center stage, was fantastic.
Here are the photos that Carlos Garna took from our Barcelona show.
