The Good Ole El Mocambo

May 5, 2011 at 2:28 am (Uncategorized)

Yes, yes, I know. It doesn’t make any sense to say the El Mocambo when el means the as well. Such is life.

I’ve seen some great shows there over the years  Alex Chilton probably being my favourite. Although the Steve Wynn/Exene Cervenka show and Wreckless Eric were pretty good too.

The El Mo’s star doesn’t burn quite as brightly these days, but this month are two shows not to be missed: 

Stornoway  plays May 24. English indie folk band, but the real treat is the absolutely wonderful Sea of Bees is opening the show (at 9:15). Get there early.

Three days later it’s Anna Calvi. Which also promises to be a great show.

There’s still life in the beast yet.
