Pride and La Jaula

Check this band out!

The Alibi is throwing a totally amazing Pride party at Casa Esencia, and some of my mysterious friends are playing. Three of the best (and most fun, and good looking) musicians around have formed the band La Jaula, and they're going to sex it up on Wednesday, June 8. The group is hard to catch, often playing underground cabarets or house parties, but the members have agreed to appear at the Alibi Pride event in all their full glory.

Who are these sexy mysteries?
Who are these sexy mysteries?

They perform Cuban boleros, Argentinian tangos, Mexican ballads and more, while playing characters that are sultry and funny.

La Jaula goes on pretty early—around 7:30 p.m. or 8—and you want to eat the delicious food from Standard Diner and Rodeo Grill before it's gone anyway, so come at the beginning of the party.

Wednesday, June 8 at 7:00pm - June 9 at 12:00am

Also featured:
DJ Nicolatron, DJ Tahnee, DJ Mello and the Alibi's own music editor, DJ Cassyle, all spinning glam rock, disco and electro. Sweet!

history lesson

DayBird - May 13th

1787 – Captain Arthur Phillip leaves Portsmouth, England with eleven ships full of convicts to establish a penal colony in Australia.

1846 – The United States declares war on Mexico. Mexico, claiming that the official boundary was the Nueces River, considered the advance of Taylor's army an act of aggression (which it was) and in April sent troops across the Rio Grande. Polk, in turn, declared the Mexican advance to be an invasion of U.S. soil, he asked Congress to declare war on Mexico, which they did.

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, signed on February 2, 1848, ended the war. The Rio Grande was made the southern boundary of Texas, and California and New Mexico were ceded to the United States. In return, the United States paid Mexico the sum of $15 million.

1917 – Ten year old Lúcia Santos and her younger cousins, siblings Jacinta and Francisco Marto report the first apparition of the Virgin Mary in Fátima, Portugal. She appeared for six consecutive months on the 13th of each month. According to Lúcia's account, the woman imparted sacred secrets to the children.

Two of the children died, Spanish Flu. Both children had their remains exhumed in 1935 and again in 1951. Jacinta's face was found incorrupt, fresh as a daisy; where as her brother’s body had decomposed. Who decided to dig them up? We should do that again. That left Lucia as the only shitty secret keeper. The Vatican made her tell, therefore negating all of existence.

Nazi/Emperor Pope said of the third secret and final secret:

"A careful reading of the text of the so-called third 'secret' of Fatima ... will probably prove disappointing or surprising after all the speculation it has stirred. No great mystery is revealed; nor is the future unveiled."

I'm swayed more by, Father Malachi Martin, who wrote the 3rd was all about the satanic infiltration of the Catholic Church, and the approach of apocalyptic events. Dude, the Emperor is in charge!

1933 - Roger Zelazny, American author, is born.

1940 - Winston Churchill gave his first speech to the British Parliament:

I would say to the House as I said to those who have joined this government: I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs — Victory in spite of all terror — Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

1964 Stephen Colbert, American comedian and actor, begotten by the father.

1994 – Johnny Carson makes his last television appearance on Late Show with David Letterman.

Music

Golden Sounds

Trombonist, percussionist, composer and arranger César Bauvallet spent his childhood immersed in the sones, danzones, boleros and cha-cha-chas of Cuba’s Golden Era of Music—a veritable explosion of traditional music whose romance and rhythms found their way into jazz and popular music around the world. Bauvallet’s father, Daniel, was at the heart of that era, and his performances as a singer in Havana nightclubs helped to define the essence of the music for generations. The tradition continues with César Bauvallet y Tradiciones—Steve Figueroa (piano), Paul Gonzales (trumpet), Janet Harman (bass), Victor Rodriguez (congas, bongos and vocals) and Tomás White (timbale)—who savor the heart, soul and intoxicating romance of the Afro-Cuban legacy. Tonight they perform at Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale SE) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for members and students and $15 for general admission. Call (505) 268-0044 for more information.
