We had to cancel our band La Sabrosa Sabrosura for this week due to dangerous driving conditions (they were to drive from Washington DC). Check them out live tomorrow night at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, Mon Dec 23 at Barbes in Park Slope or Sat Jan 11 at Drom in the East Village. Plus we plan to reschedule their session on our radio show, most likely for Saturday January 4.

Listener comments!

  6:13pm julian:

same here (though no cool bands to cancel) snowed non-stop for the last 36 hours. got about 70cm so far. need warm sounds to melt us out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Rob W:

Good morning Julian! Well that's over 2 feet, isn't it? Not quite like that here... more like 4-6 inches. But I would have been nervous having a band from Mexico driving in that mess up the NJ Turnpike. Maybe if they were from Michigan instead...
Avatar 6:18pm katie:

you've got us beat Julian. The Carter family always warms the home.
Avatar 6:22pm glenn:

wow. that's a lot of snow.
  6:24pm julian:

It's got me beat too, Katie!

Enjoying these warming sounds though, thanks Rob!
Avatar 6:26pm Fredericks:

Love this stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63: over, central heating, nutrition, vino tinto - Transpacific Sound Paradise ! Blessed am I.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Mike East:

man, I just spilled vino tinto on my radio zombies shirt.
  7:05pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Love this! Thanks for playing "Lisanga Ya Bangana"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Rob Weisberg:

Thanks everyone and good evening... and sorry to hear that Mike but such are the hazards of a snowy Saturday night at home...
Avatar 7:08pm glenn:

spill some tomato sauce on top of the vino. no one will ever know.
  7:09pm julian:

This Rochereau is DEFINITELY doing the trick. Unfortunately, I really have to go outside soon and shovel some more.....'I may be some time'.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Mike East:

I broke out the oxyclean and changed into a Beatles shirt. Good evening to all.
  7:20pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

So happy this snow closed the shop early and I could listen with you all. Sticking to beer here, much easier to wash out.
Avatar 7:37pm JakeGould:

I have snow problem listening to any of this now. Snow good! I mean, so good!
Avatar 7:37pm zeer:

what a killer track :D
  7:38pm p.moss:

Karen what kinda shop you got
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...maybe if you dye the whole shirt w/ wine, it'll just be one new consistent color - ??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Rob W:

Yes Karen, people may be up for some Christmas shopping in Sleepy Hollow - !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Mike East:

@RevRabbit - not a bad idea, but that seems like a waste of good wine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm maestroso:

Hi Rob!
Man, that last track was intensely awesome.
