gotan project

I haven't posted in a while. I was very busy last week and got sick towards the end of the week. I did go see a great concert on Sunday evening though. Alisa and I went to see Gotan Project. They are a very interesting / amazing group in the somewhat bland world of live electronica. We are lucky enough in live in SF, which as far as I can tell is their only stop in the US except for Couchella. I get the feeling that a lot of bands like to play SF. I think we make a good crowd. Anyway, they had three violinists, a cellist, a pianist, an accordion player, singer, guitar player, and two DJs. Even with that many people on stage, it worked well. Their mix of electronica, tango beaks, and indigenous Argentine music is truly a mashup worth it's own genre!
