Summer is this, unexpected. The Baseball Project.


El pasado viernes un viaje de poco más de hora y media nos condujo hasta un pueblecito medieval donde se celebra el festival Luna Lunera. Una nueva oportunidad de reencontrarnos con nuestros amigos Steve Wynn y Linda Pitmon. En esta ocasión con su nueva banda The Baseball Project.
The Baseball Project cuenta además con Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows) y Peter Buck (R.E.M), aunque éste último en esta ocasión no pudo venir y fue reemplazado por Mike Mills (también de R.E.M). Gracias a David, un viejo amigo, pudimos disfrutar de una noche fantástica, conocer a los músicos de Marah y disfrutar de dos buenos conciertos (también tocaban los Jayhawks) y trasnochar como no lo hacía desde que tuve la primera niña.
Lo único que me entristeció fue no poder quedarme al día siguiente para ver a Marah en directo y seguir disfrutando de la compañía de nuestros amigos.

Last Friday we drove over an hour and a half to a medieval village where the Luna Lunera festival took place. It was a new chance of meeting old friends Steve Wynn and Linda Pitmon. This time they were bringing to us their new band The Baseball Project.
This band has also Peter Buck (of R.E.M) and Scott McCaughey (of Young Fresh Fellows) in it. A very interesting combo of friends. Buck was replaced this time by Mike Mills (also of R.E.M).
Thanks to David, an old friend, we had an amazing night, met the people from Marah and enjoyed two great shows (the Jayhawks were also playing that night). We stayed really late too, the latest I have since I'm a mother, I must admit.

The only thing that saddened me was not being able to stay another day and see Marah live and had another wondeful night with friends.


Las nubes bajaron hasta las montañas para acompañarnos.
Clouds low enough to touch the mountains acompanied us along our drive.

Caminamos por el pueblo empedrado.
We walked through the old stoned village.



Reencuentro.

Los veranos y las vacaciones son imprevisibles. Llueve. Llueven viejos amigos. Recuerdas tiempos pasados. Revives horas sin sueño.

Espero que sigan llenandose de esos momentos estos días de vacaciones.

Woo Esti! What fab company you keep!

Looks like an amazing night was had. I have to say it feels that little bit more delicious when I get to stay out late like that. Especially when it is like a memory of my life before children (B.C.?).

Sweeter than wine. Any day.

what great company you keep girl! I'd love to have been a fly on one of those stoned walls. Every time I visit your blog I find a new surprise, something out of the ordinary that I don't find easily in any other average art blog. You surely are an out of the ordinary girl. Thanks for sharing bits of your interesting life.
