I’ve been meaning to do this post, but a bunch of things happened in July that made it impossible; here it is finally! #FestivalDeLaCerveza all the wayyyy!!!!
A month ago we (Mobley) were lucky to go to perform at the “Festival de la Cerveza Monterrey” (Beer Fest Monterrey) and it was so much fun! We got the invite from our awesome friend Mike Ahumada aka Mike Volta from Jamming House (btw Mike was one of the first collaborators and team members at our agency and band incubator “Get Your Gig” <3). We were ecstatic since we’ve heard about this festival and how it keeps getting bigger and better every year; this particular one was going to be held at the brand new Estadio BBVA Bancomer (Big Soccer Stadium) so we were all excited, and specially Alfredo who’s a big Rayados fan (the soccer team that plays there) any who, we were OOON!
The experience was super fun, it was great to see familiar bands, friends and that amount of beer & food all together ;P Mobley did awesome, people were dancing, singing, cheering and we also had a drunk guy performing for a bit (That is definitely not encouraged hahaha).
They even had a tiny tech glitch that no one even noticed because how well organized and professionals these guys are. A true pleasure to work with!
Im already waiting for the next one, be sure to follow my friends at Jamming House, they’re doing very interesting and different quality projects in Monterrey, Mx.
Here is a short https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FFestivaldelaCervezaMonterrey%2Fvideos%2F1315268655153526%2F&show_text=0&width=560“>video with some images so that you start planning for next year; yayyy!
*BTW Thanks to Jamming House for the pictures!
I’m going to be on tour with the band Mobley! If you’re going to be in Mexico City from March the 31st and until April the 6th there is a good chance we can cross paths; we’ll go to San Miguel de Allende right after and then to Monterrey. My share of the tour ends there but Mobley keeps playing the East Coast of US.
Let us know if you’re around, we’d love to see you!
PS Get ready for the food postssssss!!!! 😀
It just started and I’m already kind of tired, but the excitement is bigger so lets get ready to RRRRRumbleeee!
Hope you have a great time! I’ll be posting on twitter if you want to follow me to see pics & stuff 🙂
Can’t wait for Los Tetas, CocoRosie,YACHT, Mobley, HUMANS and Pee-wee’s Big Holiday YAYYY!
Anyway, best of luck, if you have suggestions please let me know, I’d love to discover new stuff and take advantage of the best festival ever (at least in my opinion 😉 ).
My name is Coka Trevino and I live in Austin, TX. I love art, food, travel, learning random stuff, cats, & many other things I plan to write about.
The first time I thought about blogging was when my really good friend told me I should do it; I always had something mean/funny to say about celebrities or whomever. Me, being a big fan of “The Superficial,” I thought I’d give it a try. I don’t know why I stopped, maybe it was because being mean/funny as a professional really intimidated me. Perhaps, I was just too lazy.
After a bunch of years, different jobs, and moving to Austin, I made up my mind and decided to give it a go. I often work with art, music, and creative people, plus, I’m a dedicated eater (the word foodie seems way to trendy right now), so that should give me enough material to write about.
I hope you like it and feel like sharing; that would definitely be awesome!
