I’m listening to South American recording artist Manu Chao in preparation for his concert tomorrow evening at the Greek Theater in Berkeley (note manuchao.com is owned by some bastard domain name pirate, so you can find his site at manuchao.net). My friend Jim Kay turned me on to him a year or so ago. Don’t know how he first heard him, but it was a damn good find. I can’t understand the lyrics for the most part, as he sings primarily in Espanol (you’d think as a Web designer I could code the curly spanish n thing, but no, haven’t had much reason to).
My friends, including Jim Kay, all opted out of going to the show. Prior or other engagements, or in other words, wives. I’ve been there, so I understand. I’m meeting a friend from work there, so I won’t be totally solo, not that I would mind. Anyway, should be a good show and I’m interested in seeing who shows up.
