This has been postponed until the 20th...some band begged and begged and begged for the beer bust night, so let 'em have it....so NOT the 13th, the 20TH...

This year happens to be the 40th anniversary of tropicalia.

^Tropicalia: Brazil's musical revolution turns 40

By Marcelo Ballve
It was exactly 40 years ago that the musical revolution that came to be known as Tropicalia was introduced to Brazil, and the world.
Tropicalia's genesis can be dated with some precision. It came when two musicians in their mid-20s, Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, courageously took to the stage at a 1967 song festival in Sco Paulo with compositions that they knew would sorely stress the boundaries of musical taste. Their performance was epoch-defining. It was a kind of big bang from which much that came afterward in Brazilian pop music history evolved.

speaking of which....

anyone heard about "bread and circuses", the story of Os Mutantes.

not sure if it's actually out yet, all I could find was a trailer.


looks pretty great!

how is that?...been wanting to pick it up everytime I am at Black Lodge...

I think Novos Baianos was too Brazilian for some...overheard: "this is some discovery channel shit"...some people are not entertained by hardcore brazilian jungle hippies with fuzz pedals like I am I suppose...
