I’m so happy to go to Houston with Como las Movies, your favourite Psychedelic-Cumbia-Nuevo Wave ♥ and a really cool project where our one and only Juan Alfredo Rios aka ChidoMachine plays percussions.
I’m extra excited because I haven’t been to Htown since the Hurricane. I can’t wait to go and hug everyone and see if I can help with something too.
Anyway, if you have stuff that you want us to take to Houston, let me know; Since I’m travelling with a drummer/percussionist, space is limited so we’re thinking about smaller items, but feel free to reach out, we’ll do our best to make it happen…
Catch Como Las Movies at Discovery Green from 3-4PM then Axelrad from 6-9PM.
This last Saturday the 21st I had the pleasure of witnessing my good friend and awesome Artist Gerardo Arellano receive the “Emerging Artist” award at the Mexican American Cultural Center‘s Awards of Excellence here in Austin, Tx.
Ever since I had the pleasure to meet this amazing artist, I’ve been blessed to witness how he’s grown and kick ass repeatedly with/without help and at times with a bunch of obstacles. He has persevered and is now very active and well known not only as a painter, but as a musician, PR machine, Dance Lord and basically a local celebrity!
Who would have thought that the friend of my friend that was basically my first contact here in Austin Tx ended up to be one of my favorite artists a great contact and one of my rocks here in the States. I feel very lucky to be your friend and to have crazy awesome pieces of your art!
Check his amazing work at his website or Instagram! He’s constantly working all over town so I’m sure you’ll recognize it whenever you’re wondering around; if you’re lucky you can even catch him dancing or playing the accordion on the East Side!.
Cheers Gerardo, keep’em coming, you very well deserve this and much much more 😀
