in concert

I heard Aterciopelados was playing locally and I had to go.

A band from Colombia, I've mentioned before, with a female lead (drummer is also a female!) who not only plays the guitar but  is also a mother, has written songs about breastfeeding, loves nature, speaks out for women's rights and taking care of our earth and is all about la páz (peace).

The show was at The Conga Room  and I had such an amazing time!

Las Cafeteras opened the show. A local LA band who plays a modern type of son jarocho, a traditional music style from Veracruz, Mexico. The Zapateado dancing that accompanied their awesome sounds has caused me to stalk their Facebook page looking for the next place they will play.
(If you are local you have to check them out!)

My beautiful date (my mom) who made the night extra special and in many ways understands the need for peace so much more than I do, after living as a young woman in El Salvador during El Salvador's civil war.

    (and thank you Kip....who took care of the kids, an my moms dogs... so I could have some fun :)

*disclosure: The Conga Room provided me with two free tickets to the concert, thanks to my lovely friend Monique who was able to connect me with The Conga Room!!!
