Forro in the Dark were on tonite , after a sudden hail storm brutally showered Manhattan . It made sense to make it even dancier than ever. They made the room into a steam room, literally , I saw men with completely wet t-shirts and their lady partners at the time didn't seem to mind a bit. Jorge was taking the mic lots last nite since Davi is still traveling . He is good !!! The sax and flute man Jorge Continentino comes from a family full of great musicians, his brothers Alberto and Kiko and their Father and Mother , I think everyone is pretty much right in there in the Brazilian musical tree. So , ye Jorge , keep on singing !
Mauro Refosco came running into the set from another show he just did with Devotchka , who are in town They are playing tonite as well at Highline Ballroom. Their new album "100 Lovers" sounds real good.
Mauro is this percussion man that plays with everyone. From David Byrne , Caetano Veloso, Bebel Gilberto to Thom Yorke. So ye Forro in the Dark every wednesday at Nublu !!!
This morning I woke up and went to Mogador to have breakfast and there ran into Flea ,the bassman from "Red Hot Chili Peppers", whom I met previosuly through Mauro Refosco while on tour with Thom Yorke's " Atoms for Peace" . I asked him to stop by Nublu since he's never been here. He said yee..
Tonite and tomorrow we have Nublu records' signed Italian cool cool band Calibro 35 ! They were just in Austin's SXSW and played at the magazine Wax Poetics showcase . They were apparently the only band that got an encore request . So yeah , stop by Tonite at 10 pm or tomorrow Friday at midnite and 2 am for some Funky Italian 70's carchase movie soundtrack music , but ofcourse their own music .
