CORRECTION:

Revé & Charanga CANCELLED only in SF

Alll right - this is getting really ridiculous, but I do have some tentative good news for a change. It turns out that only the San Francisco parts of the Revé and Charanga Habana tours have been cancelled/

Currently Confirmed Charanga Habanera dates

Currently Confirmed Revé dates

ADDITIONALLY:

Sportsmen's Lodge in Los Angeles is advertising Charanga Habanera for May 7

From this point I will only report concerts in the United States as being "advertised".

Pepito in Oakland - Friday Night

with Carlos Caro and Jesús Díaz

Pupy alumnus Pepito Gómez makes his third trip to the Bay Area tomorrow (Friday) night at Club Antón, right around the corner from Yoshi's in Oakland's Jack London Square district.

Pepito not only sang with Pupy, but wrote some of his best songs, including Un poquito al revés, containing the title coro of Pupy's epic Tranquilo que yo controlo, one of the best albums of recent years. As always, the lovely and talented Ariacne Trujillo will be the pianist and musical director and  this time the rhythm section will consist of Bay Area monsters Carlos Caro and Jesús Díaz. Between sets, it will be Walt Digz, a fabulous timba DJ who always embarrasses me by playing some absolutely brilliant track that I haven't heard, forcing me to sheepishly ask what it is. Let's try to sell this thing out so we can keep shows like this coming! Click here for advance tickets.
