Again thanks to newcomers and prior donors for supporting this project.
I spoke today with Louie Perez of Los Lobos. The group will be performing tomorrow night at the Rialto in Tucson. But many times they played at El Casino Ballroom, the first at a friend’s child’s baptism party. I ran into them in San Jose last fall and talked with them about the documentary.
It looks like tomorrow night they’ll go before the cameras and share some of their memories of El Casino Ballroom. The following night I’ll include some of that in the short preview I’m putting together for TPAC’s Lumie Awards. You can pick up tickets for the Lumies at:
Tonight I’ll be back at El Casino to talk with Gus Ramirez while he decorates for the Lumies. Will share more of that later on.
Thanks again and please spread the word about this. We have a long way to go, and I need al the help I can get to make this happen.
