All shows for June / July 2017

YO!

Tons of shows and stuff happening this summer…

I figured it’d be helpful to put out a little list of which band I’m playing with, where, when, why it’ll be a dope show, how it will make your face melt, etc…

Sunday, June 18: Roka Hueka will be performing in Colorado Springs for the first time in the history of Roka Hueka.  Never been done, never before attempted, this is reminiscent of the first space launch, we will arrive in Colorado Springs with nothing other than our abilities to melt faces and make booties shake.  First time.  Colorado Springs.  First time.  Location: Triple Nickel Tavern.  Click here for more details.

Saturday, June 24: I will be playing the Westword Music Showcase twice…  Once with Roka Hueka and then again with Roots, Rice & Beans (billed as Molina Speaks).  Click on the link above to see the schedule/location…

Sunday, June 25: I will be playing the Latinx Festival in Longmont with Roka Hueka.

Friday, July 7: You don’t wanna miss this show, you don’t wanna miss this show, you don’t wanna miss this show.  Roka Hueka at Ophelia’s with Al Capones and Roots, Rice & Beans!!!  Roka will be releasing its first video!  And lemme tell ya…  allow me to testify, even: So.  Much.  Fun.  To.  Do.  That.  Video.

You need to come out and skank your ass off to the funky ska rhythms of Roka and Al Capones…   also vibe with the funky-weird-freaky rhythms of Roots, Rice & Beanzzzzzzz….

Saturday, July 8: Pachamerica Festival 2 brought to you by Debajo del Agua.

This is where shit gets real.  This is where shit gets real real.  The OG’s of the bunch…

Debajo del Agua!!!

Check out this lineup: Debajo del Agua, Bang Data, 2MX2, and Yuca SoulDebajo del Agua will be releasing an album that night…  it’s the first album in like 1,372 years…  that shit is tight, yo…  I’m excited about this release…

What can you expect that night?  Really: everything that’s awesome about going to a bad-ass local show in the middle of a Colorado summer: dancing, sweating, good vibes, beautiful people, bad-ass drinks…  and as far as these bands, you can expect to hear the following: cumbia, hip hop, righteous lyrics, samba, salsa, ska, reggae, jazz, funk, son, Andean styles, reggeton, drum n’ bass, afrobeat, bossa nova, etc…  all performed as one big ol’ cosmic slop throughout the course of the night.

One.  Big.  Dirty.  Cosmic.  Slop.  …just for you.

Friday, July 14: Pink Hawks will be jamming out on the roof of the Museum of Contemporary Art!  Yo, this show is gonna be so dope!  I did this last year with Roka Hueka and it was awesome…  we’re on the rooftop, overlooking the city, open air, tight-ass band, bar up top (I recommend Bulliet bourbon for the occasion), check out some art…  you really can’t go wrong here.

I BASSically dominated the Westword’s ‘Latin’ nominations…

Yo,

If you click on this link: http://2017musicshowcasepoll.westword.com/

…you’ll see that 3 out of the 5 bands listed under the ‘Latin’ section are bands I play in: Debajo, Roka, Pink Hawks.

3 out of 5.

Yo, 3 out of 5 is what I like to call “market domination”.   It is the equivalent of 60% and 60% could kick the ass of 40% in a fight.  So I’m jussayin’…

but…

We need not fight.  The other two nominees (Izcalli, Mocochetes) are my friendz…  and I’d love to see them win as well.

And all joking aside: please vote for your favorite bands!

If you have a favorite genre you should look up the bands listed in that genre…  Google them, YouTube them, Facebook them, follow them, see them live in concert…  Thasswussup…

…and guess who loves the cat who rolls into work with ‘something to do for everyone’ this weekend?  Answer: EVERYONE at work…

 

Yeah, but… does it have a repeat-1 option?

Tonight’s show was like every other show: we performed, I recorded our performance, got home, listened to the recording until I passed out.

…and that’s all I’ll listen to.

For the next several weeks…

Until our next show/recording.

Over and over.  Somewhere around 50+ times…

…and I got no shame.  I love the projects I work on, I listen to refine the bass lines, and I listen because I want to bring people something that is worth their time.

Pink Hawks with Hard Proof at the Hi-Dive Oct. 20th

Yo.

Here’s your opportunity to afrobeat your face off.  All  night till the break-a-break-a dawn…  Or until they close the Hi-Dive at 2am.

Pink Hawks will be opening for Hard Proof on Thurs, Oct. 20, 2016.  This may or may not be my first time playing the Hi-Dive.  I dunno.  I’ll sniff the stage in search of my scent from yesteryear.

Bring your sweat cuz you’re gonna leave it there.  On the dance floor cuz…  You’re gonna move…  You’re gonna groove…  Yeah…  Just click here for tickets and details and trust me
