Despite the fact that I have to work tomorrow at 8 am, I'm leaving soon to head downtown to El Chapultapec, to see my friends play some blues.
I'm hoping a bunch of folks I know will be there when I get there.
Because I'm going by myself, to a neighborhood I wouldn't have gone to alone a couple of decades ago.
Back then, El Chapultapec was the place every hot blues and jazz musician played, and that legacy stands. Add a baseball field and a bunch of fancy bars, and the neighborhood's become a bit gentrified.
But El Chapultapec remains true to its roots. And it's even better when you know the band.
It's a great place to play, according to my friends. And it's a great place to hear live music.
I must go! I need to dig up $10 for parking. No cover.
A cheap night out. No doubt I'll be sleep deprived tomorrow.
A small price to pay to see my friends play some blues.
Just what the doctor ordered.
