my human gets me the blues! another piece of the ‘mood swings and frozen natures’ exhibition.
speaking about the blues, the cosmic type. tomorrow night will be the first gig of the new line up of CARRO DE FOGO. the new dragster, leaded by trumpet player sei miguel, will leave the garage for the first time as a nonet, for a late night gig at musicbox in lisbon.
on stage, beside sei miguel, will be fala mariam (trombone), nuno torres (saxophone), rafael toral (electronics), andré gonçalves (also on electronics), pedro gomes (guitar), myself (bass), césar burago (percussion) and luís desirat (drums). ‘to comfort and kill’!
this will be my first gig with the band, thought we play together on other formations for almost 10 years now.
if you’re in town, you’re most welcome there! we will be preaching the cosmic blues from 2 am forward :)

(…) e sempre, desconhecendo-nos a nós e aos outros,e por isso entendendo-nos alegremente, passamos nas volutas da dança ou nas conversas do descanso,humanos, fiteis, a sério, ao som da grande orquestra dos astros, sob os olhares desdenhosos e alheios dos organizadores do espectáculo. BERNARDO SOARES, in O LIVRO DO DESASSOSSEGO
