After a 2 year break Eric Bibb (http://ericbibb.com) has returned to Australia. Robert & I are always happy to see Eric back on our shores. Another opportunity to keep in touch and have a great meal. Dinner with Eric, Sari, Staffan Astner, Steve Clisby(http://miracle8.com/) and Mizue Funakoshi (http://www.redzart.com/) on April 14 consisted of dahl, Indian style fried fish, Fiji style fried fish in coconut sauce with cherry tomatoes, pumpkin curry, special rice, handmade roti and salad. Yumm!
We were again fortunate to see Eric perform @ the Enmore Theatre on 15 April. Parking was a nightmare!! We drove around for 45 minutes looking for somewhere to park. Finally found a spot in a dodgy lane with unclear parking signage – we took pics of the sign and car position before we left – just in case.
The Enmore Theatre cascaded (rather than plunged!) into darkness after the show. Power to the whole block shut down over a couple of minutes. Something to do do with the downpour of rain I guess. Lucky the gig was over. Eric was signing CD’s by torch and iPhone light!!
The small “after party” needed to me moved from the black depths of the Enmore backstage. We were lucky to find an interesting place to land – called El Cuervo Cantina @ 200 Enmore Road on the lucky side of the power outage. We were entertained by Justo Diaz and Migul Guzman playing traditional Mexican/Spanish music on guitar and bongos and looked after by proprietor Abigail. Enjoyed their food and atmosphere.
