Thank you, Buenos Aires!

An enthusiastic sold-out crowd at the beautiful La Trastienda club greeted Fred and the cats last night, and they responded by playing a truly inspired show. 

Fred and Barney

Fred's days in Argentina have been packed with great performances, interviews and a warm welcome all across the board. Click to read this interview posted by Santiago Rial Ungaro for Rolling Stone South America. Watch this space and the media archives for more coverage, which was masterfully coordinated by Ernesto Chalita and Vicky Zapata of Pop Art Music.

Highlights have included:
  •  a beautiful Argentina-style barbecue at the home of lawyer and amateur accordianist Antonio Di Bennedetto and his family, especially his lovely wife Gabriela and journalism-student daughter Deborah, in Venado Tuerto, in the Santa Fe province. Muchos gracias to the Di Bennedettos, as well as to promoter Paul Citraro who put on the Tuerto show at the Teatro Ideal.
