Crimson Moon

Lucha Corpi's detective novel, Crimson Moon, is reviewed over on La Bloga by Michael Sedano. Michael offers some good comments about what Lucha does with her novels and what it might mean that this book features Dora Saldaña and not Gloria Damasco, Lucha's previous series star.

More Texas Music

You all hip to Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez? Rodriguez's soulful twang and finger-poppin' fiddle playin' are perfect for this duo's brand of back-porch music. She's the daughter of Austin's singer-songwriter David Rodriguez. Taylor, in a much earlier life, wrote Wild Thing and Angel of the Morning. Their latest CD, Red Dog Tracks, stopped me in my tracks.

Third Annual Randy Garibay Legacy Fund Dance/Fundraiser

Those of you in the San Antonio area can support some great projects by dancing your butts off this weekend. The Randy Garibay Legacy Fund Dance/Fundraiser takes place at the Blanco Ballroom, 3719 Blanco Rd., San Antonio on Sunday December 4 from 6 - 11 PM. Only $10. There is a list of more than two dozen musicians and entertainers who are helping out - sounds like a great night. For those of you not familiar with the name, Randy Garibay is a legendary and sorely missed Chicano blues man. His friends and family have carried on his name by helping to sponsor events that support worthwhile causes, sick musicians, and that good old Chicano music from San Anto.
