This is my last stop in Brazil! I don´t really want to leave but I´ve got to keep movin´, I´m already wayyy behind, uh, schedule. Waitaminute, I don´t have a schedule! I don´t even have a return ticket... that´s the way I wanted it... that´s the way it´s gonna be!
Anyway, this place is alright, strikingly different from beautiful Florianópolis... Floripa is clean full of gorgeous, healthy people... Porto Alegre is sleazy and full of hobos with physical deformations. No jokin´! Amazing to see such a difference after just a 6-hour bus ride. But P. Alegre is decidedly more rock´n´roll, tons of bands come from here, I found a gig with 5 bands playing just walkin´ around the town... and instanly made friends... so it´s a shame that I´m not gonna spend more time here.
Last night I spun records (er, CDs... ugh) in a bar called Beco, great party, people seemed to dig my 60s shit after they got over the inital shock of hearing songs with regular instruments. And hey, I realized after the gig that I´ve DJed the last three nights in a row. This trip has turned into somewhat of a DJ tour for me...
Sao Paulo - Astronete
Curitiba - Kitinete
Florianópolis - Blues Velvet
Lagoa da Concecao - Clube de Sinuca
Porto Alegre - Beco
Tonight I´m gettin on a night bus, tomorrow morning I´ll be in La Paloma, Uruguay.
