2001 Calexico posters were done as a mirrored-image
matched set of color flyers for shows in Boulder
and Denver. The promoter for the Bluebird wanted
one, and so did Tulagi's. Problem solved! The
Tulagi show was done in candy apple red, the Bluebird
one in powder blue and primer gray. Calexico put
on the the best show I'd seen in a long time.
The trumpets were unbelievable, and the sound
guy panned the stereo mix throughtout the night.
I stayed by the side of the stage listening to
the trumpets. Used to hate the Herb Alpert records
my folks played, now I love 'em for that mariachi
sound. Taped the show for posterity, of course.
Calexico is great about that, and other bands
could learn a thing or two from them...
