I met Carlos the first time I went down to Monterrey, Mexico. I have to say he is one of the coolest cats I've ever come across, with his long hair, his moustache, and his laid back attitude. I can't wait to go hang out with him in Mexico City sometime soon.
I will be telling the tale of my first trip to Monterrey live at Fort Tilden Beach on Sunday afternoon as part of an Acoustic BBQ. If you have never been to Fort Tilden it is far and away the most beautiful beach in New York City, and the Acoustic BBQ is one of the coolest events of the year. The first one was actually a party that I threw to celebrate the first anniversary of Puttin' on the Ritz down by the peninsula in Prospect Park. This being the 5th annual acoustic BBQ (the other three were on Roosevelt Island), it seemed a shame not to play just because Kevin Shea is out of town. I have been trying to figure out what the solo version of Puttin' on the Ritz would be, and I finally realized that it is just me doing standup comedy. So if you are in New York City (or wouldn't mind commuting for the day) please feel free to bring yourself and/or your loved ones down to hang out, the music is going to be fantastic and I really think it will be a day to remember.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Los Fancy Free.
