      Super quick note that I’ve been meaning to send for a few days, and now rushing to begin my fast….


      Things you need to know abot – SOB’s has some extra special shows this week that are all pretty unmissable;

      Tomorrow night, Ethiopian legend Mahmoud Ahmed, who played a historic concert at Lincoln Center Out of Doors plays late Sat night.  (also, the incredible dancer Melaku, who performed on the same show with Getatchew Merkeuria and The Ex, will be dancing with Boston’s Debo Band @ Joe’s Pub tonight.)


      Sunday night, one of Cuba ’s finest bandleaders, Adalberto Alvarez, is playing SOB’s.  I commisisoned a collaboration between Alvarez and choreographer Merian Soto that ran for three nights at SummerStage a little over a decade ago.  Ghaven’t been able to see him since.  I’m super excited to see the show on Sunday and celebrate my birthday, too.  I have a pair of tix to give away to someone who helps spreads the word, or tells me why they deserve them.  Let me know, and when I get back online after Yom Kippur, I’ll pick a winner.  Info at www.sobs.com


      I also have a pair of tix to give away to see Bahia ’s legendary Afro bloco Olodum, who is best known to folks through their participation in Paul Simon’s Rhythm of the Saints.   Same deal, and I’ll give those tix away on Monday.


      At the David Rubenstein Atrium, there are a number of amazing free shows coming up as part of Target Free Thursdays.  This Thurs is a fascinating show with Juan Pablo Billa as part of the Celebrat Mexico Now festival.  Oterh upcoming shows include Roy Nathanson’s Sotto Voce, Hot Club of SF, and the US debut of The Fish Police, who I’ve been touting for a while, on a shared bill with terror pigeon Dance Revolt!  check out the complete schedule on http://lincolncenter.org/atrium


      The Atrium will also host a new lounge series, LCDJ, which kicks off on Oct 2 with the NY debut of DJ Tudo, recently reviewed in the Sunday NY Times.  He collects amazing brazilian field recordings, and tehn remixes them and  has worked with folks like Adrian Sherwood and Mad Professor.  Don’t miss it. http://www.myspace.com/djtudo  


      Other parties as part of the series include Mat Shadatek, The Bunker, I Love Vinyl, Belinda Becker, and on Sat, November 6, something called the GlobeSonic Sound System.  And those are all free too.


      Do come out.


      Alright, late for my dinner pre-synagogue.  Have an easy fast, those of you who do that.  I’ll be offline till Sundown tomorrow.

      Adalberto Alvarez


      On Sunday, September 19th, Adalberto Alvarez comes to SOBs direct from Cuba for night of music that will not soon be forgotten.

      Pianist, composer, arranger and director Adalberto Alvarez, has been one of the leading forces in the revival of son, the Cuban dance music that reached its peak in popularity in the '50s. Adalberto's sound is tradional and also shares many characteristics of New York and Puerto Rican salsa; smooth and elegant at times, but capable of a raw energy. Adalberto gained the nickname, 'The Son Gentleman' eventually because of be and within his contributions as musician, we can highlight the fact of having permeated the Son with contemporary streams, to reinsert it from Cuba, in the Salsa`s atmosphere and sonority. This musical genre has ruled the international arena along the last years.

      This concert is a truly special event, the last time Adalberto Alvarez & his band were in the US was in 1999. Over a decade later 'El Caballero Del Son' is back in the city that never sleeps to bring the Cuba flavor that everyone has eagerly been awaiting. Tickets are available at Ticketweb.com. Admission is $30 in advance & $35 Day of.
