Well I don't often do this but its a special occasion
and I don't mean the Calexico concert which indeed
was special, but the first gig for my brand new camera,
I have a last gone SLR and I'm very happy with the results.
It will take a lot of getting used to but I will get the hang of it.
So the gig, well I'm a long time Calexico fan and I missed them
last time they played here so I was determined not to this time
They were superb, it was quite a treat to see these most accomplished
musicians in such a small intimate venue as the Spiegeltent is.
They played through an excellent set list you can see here
and were joined on stage during the encore with Bernard Fanning
and he sang a song with Calexico backing him.
These guys are one of the worlds great bands if you ever get the
chance to see them don't miss it.
I also had the pleasure of meeting long term blog contributor
Michael Palmer at the gig so an excellent night all round!
