From Post-Punk to Latin Romance: How Diego Garcia Got His Groove (and Girl) Back

diegogarcia001

KCRW launched its first installment of its Summer Nights series in Pasadena with a
concert by artist Diego Garcia this past Saturday. KCRW DJ Anne Litt introduced Garcia
and his well-dressed backup band of musician friends to an adoring crowd that packed
the European-style courtyard of the One Colorado shopping area.

The show, Garcia’s last in his week-long tour of California, covered every track off his
freshly-released solo debut album, Laura, as well as a cover of The Kinks “This Strange
Effect” for good measure. Amidst the setting sun and gentle breeze, Garcia poured his
heart out as he shared the pain of lost love, the comfort and release provided by time and maturity and the triumph of love regained.

Head over to LA WEEKLY for my full interview with Garcia and concert review.
