There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

Rodrigo y Gabriela

Friday night and everyone is certainly feeling alright. Perfect time for the unexpected.
Alex Wilson is the opening act. He looks Hispanic, sounds British, and his first piano solo is a cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman". The evening gets super interesting quickly.

A nice enough guy named Ulysses asks if he can sit by me ( it's the only spot left in the packed arena), offering Wild Turkey in exchange for his intrusion. I smile and accept the invitation. We talk about Rodrigo y Gabriela while they jam on their guitars with unadulterated fervor.
  I fall hard for Gabriela.
The music was so pure that the clips below are from last nights show.

Viva Mexico City!
