Ok...I have about $250 in Southwest Airlines credit so I'm gonna hit the Fillmore for Friday night only (Lobos close that night)...very hit and run for me, prolly a 40 hr turnaround...


ok, all is booked and ready to go...I'll leave home about 7:00 PM Thursday night, arriving in Las Vegas about 11:30 PM...a bit of casino foolishness and go to the airport about 3:00 AM for my 6:30 AM flight to Oakland ... because of time differences and making a stop in Burbank I'll arrive in Oakland about 11:00 AM...grab my rental and hit Down Home Music and Amoebas (Black Friday Record Day!!!)...get to the Fillmore about 3:00 PM or so and just do the cool guy hang...after the show and the post show hang I'll grab a bite and be back to the Oakland Airport about 3:00 AM, turn the rental in, check in for my 6:15 AM flight and nap...get back to Vegas Saturday morning about 10:30 and drive home...will get back to the Canyon about 4:00 PM or so...whew!

That made me tired just reading it...


Made me tired just writing...I looked at it and thought "What the hell was I thinking!" oh well...done is done...

Any reviews, comments, setlists, links, etc. would be greatly appreciated!  Cheryl and I were unable to make the Fillmore this year due to prior commitments.  We always look forward to the Christmas show (which used to be "shows") and were sad to have missed out this year.  I wonder how much Los Lobos were able to stretch out with X and Jane Weidlin also on the bill.

I went Friday night, thinking Lobos might be closing the show. However, that was not the case. Nevertheless, even with David's absence they made the most of their middle slot. Josh Baca ( Los Texmaniacs) filled in with his accordion. Cesar and Louie provided ample guitar licks.

Not super familiar with X music, so the entire evening was sort of anticlimactic for me. Opening act Elletrodomestico was quite entertaining. Jane Wiedlin led this band that included a guy in a dress, a dude playing a bass ukulele and  Dawn Richardson on drums.

They won't let me bring my upgraded camera into the Fillmore, so sorry no photos.  It's not Christmas until Los Lobos plays the Fillmore, so I'm good for the holiday season.
