ARRRIBAAA! Ay ay ay - Del Castillo

Rick and Mark Castillo are hands down the most talented guitar players I have ever seen! I first saw them on PBS while sitting in my room in Hardin House - my friends and I were in such awe that we decided to drive to where they were playing and unfortunately missed out on the free concert. We were able to locate their next show, a small Cinco De Mayo festival located in East Austin. We dressed all-out, wearing Mexican flag skirts, dancing the night away holding a beer in one hand and a turkey leg in the other.

The next year they were on the list for ACL! They've come a long way since that small festival - I would compare them to having the entertainment value of the Gypsy Kings. Fun and lively, you can't sit still!

This Thursday, go see them for yourself at Antones on 5th!
