awesome madness

so after the Luggage Store show on friday we headed towards the Mission and saw "Pistolitas de Azucar" curated by Raquel de Anda at Galeria de La Raza...and it was awesome. it was pure nostalgic Mexican goodness: they had clips of old telenovelas(Rosa Salvaje, Simplemente Maria), blah blah...just go see it.

Featured Artists: Mitsy Ávila Ovalles, Monica Canilao, The Date Farmers, Amanda Lopez, Juan Luna-Avin, Angelica Muro, Txutxo Perez, Michele Muennig and Juan Carlos Quintana.

evil looks, evil people... jk

lil loca, i'll put atist name later

and of course...the mandatory youtube lil loca

hmmm, so yeah i think this was one of the best shows i seen so far. you could even buy the soundtrack for one dollar.

i guess the only disappointing part came when we started to dance and nobody joined in. which i guess brings the following question: what's the proper dancing etiquette at a gallery? allowed, not allowed? proper? improper? i dont know but last time i was in LA we all had a fun time dancing at Tropico's. i mean come on, what do you expect when you play cumbias? Danny, i have a feeling we are not in LA anymore...

and artist talk Saturday June 9 @ Galeria de La Raza of course.
