Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox

You see, I learned about Scott thru Reddit, he posted on the board that he had just played a loose interpretation of the Pokemon theme song at a cocktail piano gig, and he though nobody noticed. I immediately became a fan of his vintage style, and started to follow his postings, then videos, then Facebook - You get the point.

Last week he finally released the dates for his first tour, and guess where is he going to start his tour? Yeah, Montreal ladies and gentlemen. Now do you want to know the sad part? Most likely I will be traveling for work, and I won't be in Montreal for his show on June 3 at Le Cabaret du Mile End - Tour Dates.

If you are in Montreal, and enjoy this style of music, make sure to buy your ticket and check them out, because I'm pretty sure you are going to be hearing more and more about this band.


Below you find some samples of their music:

Pictures of Bogota and Lima - March 2014

as promised on my Lima and Bogota posting a couple of days ago, below you will find more pictures of Bogota and Lima.  I only had one day to explore Bogota, and I wish I had more time because the city seems fascinating, and there are so many places to visit. Loved the Botero museum, a must if in the city, and the best is there are so many other things to see after you finish with Botero.

You will see more pictures from Lima and this is because I spend an entire Saturday in this fabulous city, again I wish I had more time but nevertheless I got to walk al lot and enjoyed all the placed I visited.  The best ceviche I've tried until now boys and girls, so if you are into seafood make sure to hit Lima in your next trip alright?

Bogota and Lima, March 2014

Work sent me to Bogota and Lima this past week. Although it was a doctor's type of trip I did get out and walked around a bit.  Loved the Botero museum in the old part of Bogota, and the catacombs in Lima were creepy and interesting at the same time.  Imagine, where the catacombs are located is the safest part of the church when seismic activity occurs.

Be careful when taking taxis at the airport of Bogota, go always for the yellow ones and not with the drivers that are waiting for you just outside the door, and get some cash before leaving the airport, taxis won't accept credit cards, or give receipts as a matter of fact.  Actually, while in Bogota and Lima I used the Easy Taxi app, it worked very well unless you were requesting taxis during the rush hour, then is everyone for themselves.

Lima has the best ceviche period, and are you going to believe me I never made it to Miraflores?  Then again it's not like I was there to enjoy myself, I was working boys and girls.

I'll leave you now with this pictures I took from the 19th floor of my hotel room, facing the Palacio de  justicia, and I promise to post more pictures afterwards for both Bogota and Lima.
