At this point I’m feeling the effects of two days of concerts plus longer than usual workdays. But I had to get back to Auditorium Shores to see a classic rock act.
Not only are they still alive and playing, but they currently have the Top Selling 8-track in the World! These guys were playing before I was born… I mean, I thought La Maldita Vecindad looked old but these people make them look like Hanna Montana. I only know a few of their songs yet it was a really good concert.
Video and the rest of the bands if you read more…
After Cheap Trick ended I walked downtown to Speakeasy, to check out some Colombian bands, since the previous year they were pretty good. This one is formed by three guys, each formerly part of a pretty big act: Aterciopelados, Carlos Vives and Sonorama. But I thought they were pretty weak.
Colombian reggae / dancehall band were pretty good. I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear more about them in the future.
They’ve played before in SXSW (but I don’t think I saw them back then), and they are getting really big in Colombia. Sadly at this point my brain had turned into jelly and I had to leave in the middle of the show. That’s the end of day 3. Better get some rest for day 4.
