Ekhi Lopetegi of Delorean

Spanish alternative dance band Delorean rocked the Bowery Ballroom in New York on November 21, 2010.  Though the band has been around for 10 years, this was my first proper exposure to their music.� I loved what I heard.  Delorean (who’ve taken their name from the time machine featured in the “Back to the Future” movies), have remixed the like of The XX, Cold Cave and Franz Ferdinand.  Opening acts Light Pollution and Lemonade began a great night of music at 9 and 10 pm, respectively.  Delorean hit the stage at 11:20 and rocked for well over an hour.  I sat in the balcony and I enjoyed watching the crowd dance like there’s no tomorrow.  Unfortunately, no setlist was posted, but you’ll have to take my word for it – Delorean was great!

Elvis Costello and G

I love New York!  In spite of the freezing cold weather, I went on another one of my legendary solo adventures.  On my way home, I decided I would take a long walk and go down streets I rarely walk along.   This methodology paid off and I ran into rock god Elvis Costello along my path!  Elvis was on a phone call and I motioned to him that I would love to take a picture with him.  He asked his friend on the phone to hold on while he stopped and took a picture with me!  He was very polite and I thanked him and we were each off on our merry ways!  Thanks so much Mr. Costello for the great music and for being so cool!  I’m so happy to have met you!
