Live Review: Rodrigo y Gabriela and C.U.B.A. @ Paramount Theatre 4/3

Echoes from one of my favorite concerts in recent memory, Rodrigo y Gabriela‘s 2007 Halloween gig at the Paramount Theatre, still populate my subconscious. Hundreds of collective minds were blown that night. Halloween costumes undulated in and out of focus. Rodrigo’s lightning-fast guitar picking surged. Gabriela’s booming guitar percussion popped. They played like warrior poets and their peerless musicanship dictated whyRead more...
