I went out on Monday night to see Calexico play.
The band were, needless to say, excellent. You can’t go wrong with trumpets and pedal steel.
Unfortunately, they didn’t get to play for quite as long as we (and they) would have liked. They were late arriving thanks to a delayed ferry out of Dublin. They played ‘till after 11:30 and then had to stop because of the strict curfew imposed at the venue.
In all fairness, Joey Burns did offer to go to a bar afterwards so the band could play some songs acoustically.
Ha! With this country’s licensing laws? That’s crazy.
What’s even crazier is that I heard later that they actually found somewhere.
