July 5th, 6th, and 12th gigs

A hot June in Presidio has just about come and gone. We did indeed perform at the Ojinaga Fiestas on June 1st. Seems like everyone around except the band knew that we were going to play, and as it turns out, they were right. We ended up putting on a three hour show and some of us got on some of the carnival rides to close out the evening. Mexican carnivals are a lot of fun, by the way.

Speaking of having fun, el circo came to Ojinaga last week. The name of this outfit is Circus Barley and they put on about the best show money can buy. A lot of people consider Presidio to be at the end of the earth, but they forget that OJ is just across the border. We have more things going on between our two cities than you'd think!

OK, so here comes July 5th. Come see us in Presidio as we celebrate Independence Day. Like I said, it's really hot right now down in La Junta, so we'll wait until about at least 9:00 PM to crank up the party. Admission is free, but bring a lawn chair. Food and drinks will be sold.

Sunday, July 6th, Mariachi Santa Cruz will be performing at the zocalo in Ojinaga at around 8:00 PM. Mariachi music anyone?

On the following Saturday, July 12th, The Resonators will put on a free show at El Parque in downtown OJ. Again a free show, and a great way to soak up the local culture. Should start around 9:00 PM.
