Jose & band
Red Hot & Rio

Jose Gonzalez, while he was in town to play Prospect Park with Junip, DJ the afterparty at the Bell House, and play a show for Rooftop Films (who were screening a movie about him), also played a private Red Hot & Rio2 party at the "Red Bull Loft" in SoHo on Monday (6/20).

Like the private Beirut loft party before it, the event was happening mainly to create promo videos for the upcoming charity CD. The other artists who played this one were Om'mas Keith and Mia Doi Todd, and they were all backed by a house band consisting of Stuart Bogie, Luke O'Malley, Miles Arntzen, Adam Weinger, David Ellenbogan, Mike Loren Lavalle and Chelsea Baratz.

That's 10 musicians total, but don't worry, you didn't miss much. They only played a total of three songs throughout the night (all of which appear on the CD), though actually they did play each song multiple times (until they got one they were happy with releasing). Some more pictures from the shindig below...

"Red Bull Loft"?
Corporate-sponsored rubbish.

I was there on Monday and lucky enough to be on the guest-list. It was a well-organized event, including good food and drinks, amazing performances, and a variety of interesting people to mingle. I will keep my eye on the upcoming RedHot events. These guys know what they do and how to do it well. I met most of the crew already. Such hard-working and passionate group of people.
