MP3 + Live: Catch Calexico in Petaluma with Sea Of Bees

Live Calexico is an experience. Live Calexico at a small (and awesome) venue is an experience you just cannot pass up. So don’t.

If you’re in the Yay Area or anywhere north, head to the historic Mystic Theatre in Petaluma tonight. Sacramento‘s Sea of Bees open for Calexico. There’s still a few tickets available. While you’re in town, stop by Heebe Jeebe for a ¡Dia De Los Gigantes! Shirt .

Here’s a taste of what you’re in for:

Calexico “El Picador” (live)
from China Theater, Stockholm 4.25.03 

Sea of Bees “Marmalade”
from Songs for the Ravens [follow]

Rock Art: Ricky Watts Poster for Sean Hayes / Arann Harris

This drawing was inspired by musician Arann Harris of The Green String Farm Band. He came up with the concept and I brought the idea to life. It is a futuristic interpretation of a growth hormone experiment gone bad on the downtown streets (of my hometown) of Petaluma, California, once known as the “Chicken Capital of the World“.”

Limited run of 50 prints. More info / purchase »

If you haven’t seen a show at the Mystic, here’s a terrific opportunity. Grab tickets now. It’s ALL AGES.
