Pick you up at eleven?

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


THIS IS ACTUALLY a great song, but due to the camcorder dynamics of the whole thing, well. IT'S LIKE YOU'RE ACTUALLY THERE! And...I don't mean that in a metaphorical fashion. The beat is crazy. I was buggin out to it on my iTunes, and then I shot off to YouTube...

How To Not Make Excuses

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


THIS CAT makes me look like a sloth, lately. ...although my own cat makes me look like a sloth, lately, so that's not saying much. I must get out more. Got to. Anyway, enjoy your weekend, vat@s. I know I've been light on posting. Earning tortillas, you know? I'll...

Kindergarten Class Pwns the MinuteMensos

Categorized under Frontera , Raza , Viernes Noche Música | Tags: , ,


FOR OUR FRIDAY You-Tube treat, I give you a stand-off between a sidewalk full of lame Minutemens@s and a playground of young children, whose unflagging cheer of ¡México! ¡México! ¡México! brought tears to my eyes by the time the vid was over. This wasn't really because of the name...

People Like You and Me

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


FOR TONIGHT'S YOUTUBE installment, I have no choice but to return to this song. I know many of us have heard it before, but it refuses to be silent. Thank you for participating. Do not be hesitant. Do not resist. The drums are quiet liberating. Worthy of your sweat....

Esta mi obsesión para viernes. Escuche.

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


EL GENERAL has me racking my brains for "love songs" so I bring this one over here to set off this very warm friday evening. Perhaps not a typical "love" song, more about, well...obsession. And being drawn into it, even despite consequences. And the hesitation or admonishment not to....

A Voice That Lives On

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags: ,


HEY HEY HEY it ain't Friday Night until we bust out the YouTube and get celebratory with some sweet música. Last time we featured Argentinian rebel-hearted artist Mercedes Sosa, it was to listen to a beautiful, beautiful tune called Gracias a la Vida. Today we open our ears and...

We Are the People Whose Come Here to Play

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


FRIDAY... Pues, normally on fridays, you will find me turning you on to some of my favorite spanish language musix. But I happened across an outfit called The Knife (sombrero tip toward Intersections) and I guess I'll blame it on spring, too, because I must have played this bad boy...

I'm not afraid to say it—

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


FREEDOM. I saw this cat live, at the Woodstock 25th anniversary concert in Bethel, NY. Can ya believe it? I got lucky. Jeje. I could tell you some stories about that weekend. But I won't! Anyway, Richie Havens is one strong dose. A beautiful song, and a lot of heart...

Desayuno con el Diablo

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


FRIDAY ONCE MORE and I swear the days are flying by. Wasn't it just Friday? Here's a spooky little ditty called Paciencia, by one of our favorites here at Nez's joint, Control Machete. A good video to watch late at night, when you can't sleep. Enjoy your evening, vat@s!...

Big Friday en el Electric Tango

Categorized under Música , Viernes Noche Música | Tags: ,


¡Viernes! BAJO FONDO TANGO CLUB is a Nezua playlist fave, a band my popz turned me on to a while back. Great mostly-instrumental stuff, I sometimes use it to write to. Here's Electric Tango, a slinky, spooky, spicy sort of jam that reminds me of something THE MEXICAN AGENTS (in-joke...

Say Jak!

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT IS about martial arts that turns so many people into morons. I don't mean studying. I mean commenting. All you have to do is go to any single thread on YouTube and see what I mean. And that is actually representative of everyday life,...

¡Nos llaman Mexicanos!

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


VIERNES. I don't know about you, but I feel like I've had a rough week, and Flamenco ain't gonna do it tonight. Here's a hardcore bout of orgullo comin' atcha from one of my regula staples, Control Machete. The song is called Humanos Mexicanos. I'm less and less comfortable using...

Lágrimas Negras

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


ANOTHER FLAMENCO FRIDAY NIGHT, it seems! Tonight's selection of Diego el Cigala arrives with a sombrero tip to Unapologetic Mexican reader Genaro. And I agree with him. This is some good stuff. And Bebo Valdes—the cat playin' those kee-razy bones—is 80! See, that's what I'm talking about. Doin' what you...

¡Basta Ya!

Friday Night! We've still got some Control Machete left! And as I look over and see the amber light of magic hour spilling into my window, I know its time to shake up out of this chair. Control Machete, Genio Del Dub. From the album Uno, Dos: Bandera. Enjoy yourself...

Bien, Bien

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


Friday Night. Here's a case of a band who really needs a video director! Je-je. Not to be overly critical but not much happens in the video. I post it because it's a great band, and I've always loved this song for its phrasing tighter than the seams in hell,...

Saturday Night Jukebox

Categorized under Viernes Noche Música | Tags:


Control Machete makes some strong stuff, and I keep their old and the new albums on my playlist. This video for El Amores Perros is from the 2000 film of the same name. The sexualizing/dog metaphor is a bit disturbing...but clearly, it's supposed to be, and I think separated from...
