the last 2 weeks
this photo was taken by fito fratti at vertigo colectivo's dressing room at centro cultural borges, april 6. charly was vertigo's special guest that night
april 10: flew to mendoza with robert for guitar craft XXI anniversary course in lunlunta. the course completed on april 19
april 20: flew back to buenos aires. lunch with rf, marcelo, moni and uma at prosciutto, then drove rf to ezeiza airport, back home for a nap and off to rehearsal with bochaton
april 21: francisco bochaton at la trastienda. full house. the audience felt strange: audience is not allowed to stand up and dance nor jump...could have been a hot gig but this constrained something. strange. post cromagnon effect. also a professinal hassler (nicknamed boludo) in the first row making our performance very difficult.
april 22: la national film chamber orchestra at bafici
april 23: la national film chamber orchestra at bafici, featuring charly garcia, played music for the stag movies at malba. an improvised petit show followed. dinner wit the band and charly at la madelaine. back home very tired at 5am
april 22: day off
april 23: rehearsal with flopa. her songs move me everytime I hear them. they are stunning. after the rehearsal, in the neighborhood of floresta, I realized that one of the back wheels of my car was stolen. ouch. lucas the drummer and juan helped putting the spare tyre. frustrating feeling...but the thought of "it could have been worst" helped me.
