Saturday, 2-16: Y.Que

We arrived at the Tin Star at about 9:00, and the place was already almost full -- just a couple of tables were free.

Ben Lucero and the rest of the Y.Que band were tuning up as folks mingled.

A guy at the table next to ours was, shall we say, somewhat interested in one member of our table's party.

Once the music started (click for a sound bite), the dance floor was packed. A wedding party seemed to be enjoying themselves, especially the new bride.

Some of the usual suspects were spotted.

That's Sam on guitar in the background.

Ben introduced himself musically (click).

Then the evening's music started. Here's Anton on the keyboard.

Johnny was a green flash on the drums.

We left relatively early while the bar was still packed, but it showed all the usual signs of going strong until well after midnight.

Longer versions of the recordings that I made that evening are available on request. Shoot me an email and I will send you the download links.



  1. Is that Tom Udall in the second picture?

  2. Well, the Tin Star does see its share of New Mexico politicians, but I'm not sure that Tom has grown a mustache recently, or, for that matter, if he even owns a cowboy hat.
