Alex Wilson is the opening act. He looks Hispanic, sounds British, and his first piano solo is a cover of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”. The evening gets super interesting quickly.
A nice enough guy named Ulysses asks if he can sit by me ( it’s the only spot left in the packed arena), offering Wild Turkey in exchange for his intrusion. I smile and accept the invitation. We talk about Rodrigo y Gabriela while they jam on their guitars with unadulterated fervor.
I fall hard for Gabriela.
The music was so pure that the clips below are from last nights show.
Viva Mexico City!
