Cinco de Mayo

In several hours, I will be heading over to the Glenn at the Backyard to see the always impressive Del Castillo.

I first heard them at Auditorium Shores during SxSW 2005 by accident. I had ventured out to see the Neville Brothers that evening. As fate would have it, a thunderstorm pushed all of the shows back 1 hour. Like many others in attendance, I was knocked on my ass. They were freaking awesome! Having seen their names advertised in the Chronicle for several years, I kicked myself for not seeing them earlier.

Anyway, I'm getting prepped and psyched for their unique brand of Flamenco influenced rock tonight.
