    Albuquerque and Santa Fe

    Near the center of Santa Fe. The oldest Church in the United States.  The mission was built by Tlaxcalan Indians from Mexico in the early 1600's, under the direction of Fray Alonso de Beavides. 

    2:08pm. It is snowing hard right now as we drive from Santa Fe New Mexico to Denver. The drive through Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado is really beautiful. The drive today is 400 miles and we play a concert tonight in Denver, and we have about 40 miles left to go.

    Last night the concert was at the beautiful James Little Theater in Santa Fe. Our friend Tomas did a good job of promoting the show, but Santa Fe remains a mystery to me on how to consistently get good sized audiences there. CGT has played several great shows in Santa Fe in the past, one of them on my list of all time favorite gigs at the Santuario de Guadalupe, which is an old historic church in the downtown area. We had a small yet enthusiastic audience at the show last night. Perhaps Santa Fe is one of the places that has been hit hard by the recession? As opposed to Dallas, where we saw no signs of recession at all, at least not from our viewpoint. In fact we had more people at our show than we did the last time we played there. So it is interesting to note the differences in the places we visit.

    On Thursday night we had a packed house at Cooperage in Albuquerque. When we drove up to the venue, we were surprised to find out that Cooperage is actually steak and prime rib restaurant, which also has a large back room where they hold concerts. It was a very unusual setting for a concert, but it turned out great with a very attentive appreciative crowd at the steakhouse.
