tami show and those puro classicos

I’ve been wanting to write about the TAMI Show for a while. I have the story in my head of Lolo travelling to Denver to see Gerry and the Pacemakers. They probably all have pacemakers now but back in the day this film and travelling concert series almost led Lolo to flunking out of school. I think the teenage Lolo had to drive a truckito filled with furniture from Questa to Denver. Maybe he volunteered to be in Denver around the week or so of the concert date. He was in school at the time. He was always leaving school for work or to work out someehwere for the family. Pretty funny to think of the old Chicano searching for tickets to see his classicos but music has always been important to Lolo. I can see you flunking out because of the goddamm Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Jefita would yell. No, Mama, Lolo would say. James Brown.
