Las Rubias at Barbès this Saturday

Las Rubias del Norte are playing at Barbès this Saturday, 3/28. It sounds like they’re going to be previewing some songs that they’re working on for their next album. Las Rubias includes Hebrew Schoolers Taylor Bergren-Chrisman and Giancarlo Vulcano on bass and guitar.

Every time I go to Barbès, there’s a group of bright-eyed young whippersnappers on their way in, one telling the other “have you been here yet?” It’s been around quite a while, but it’s somehow really that special kind of place– always an exciting new discovery.

The Rubias start at 10pm, but the 8pm band, Gato Loco looks like they’ll be very good, too (“Cuban son dance hits from the 1920s-1940s” + “amazing lineup of musicians”), so maybe I’ll come by early and have one of those hoppy beers they have there in the big tall glasses. Yum!

An as-it-happens alert from the Because-I’ve-Run-Out-of-Tears Department, from FIPS:

PARK SLOPE, Brooklyn (FIPSNN) – 10th street resident Aaron Feldman announced plans this morning to wear his IDF T-Shirt to an 11am brunch at Dizzy’s. With Israeli ground troops entering Gaza and the current wave of violence entering it’s 9th day, local analysts predict that Feldman’s move in the largely Palestinian-supporting South Slope could be suicidal.

Feldman, a park slope Hipster and Heeb magazine subscriber, describes his move as one of disgust and defiance.
