Dinnergeddon is a truly magnificent event and Andrew Hyde is a dinner party hero. This is the seventh incarnation, by far our largest gathering. Thank you to the guests who make this a true joy. As usual the menu was entirely Paleo friendly: tamarind-citrus chicken, mashed plantains, and cilantro-jicama slaw. This will be my last dinnergeddon in Boulder for a while and I'll miss it. Love all around.
Hyde requested a western-themed meal, so I'm presenting some western-themed sounds. I'll leave it "western-themed" because this isn't all music of the cowboys. It's a little bit old and a little bit new.
This list started off with some South American flavors and then I fell into a black hole listening to the outrageous Rhythms Del Mundo discography. These musicians prove the value of a cover. Pairing with some of your current favorite artists (Bruno Mars, R.E.M.), they replay old favorites with a devastatingly new spin.
And, of course, I had to finish the list with Shakira. Hips don't lie folks.
