Night owl chat – The Velvet Underground

The old joke is that 3,000 people bought “The Velvet Underground & Nico”—and half of them formed bands because of its influence. A bit of Lou Reed, John Cale, and friends.

Night owl chat – Vengan a bailar, salseros!

***

Hi, my name is LL, and I’m a salsero.

I didn’t really dance much to salsa when I lived in New York, which is odd, as that’s where salsa was born from a mixing of Cuban and Puerto Rican music.

However, when I moved to L.A. and started going to parties with my various Cuban family, I learned to dance salsa right quick. If I’m ever in a down mood, all I have to do is put on some salsa and the world looks much brighter.

So, for your night owling, a little bit of la musica caliente que se llama la salsa.

Night owl chat – Freestyle

A few weeks ago I posted this, taking a trip down memory lane. Concurrently with electro, there was another genre called “freestyle”. This was more the music of my time in L.A. Again, dark sweaty parties dancing until you couldn’t dance any longer. So, more dancing for you night owls.
