way to go Calexico! their new album 'El Mirador' is excellent. give it a spin. on May 14th 1998 Purple Ivy Shadows played a show with them and Dirty Three at the old Union Street location of THE MET in Providence as part of the Providence Phoenix's 'Best Music Poll' which we won 'Best Album' in for No Less The Trees Than The Stars. last time Calexico played Rhode Island we reminisced about this show and they were pretty sure it was their first ever tour. here's a poster and ad for the show, and be sure to check out the new Calexico album -- links for streaming sites, etc. are here
