A Friday night show in the legendary (and alien-like) Circo Voador (Flying Circus) in Rio De Janeiro… at midnight. Our label-mates PRD Mais puts the crowd in a very good place. The energy in the venue is beautiful. GØ starts things off with solos from Maz on effected trumpet and Bill on Rhodes. Justin takes a synth solo over the outro. Gemini gets weird and Shaun takes it up on keyboards. Justin stretches on trumpet during Grown Folks and Shaun takes it out. Palermo is grooving. Bob takes the solo on guitar. Whitecap gets a bass wah intro. Bullock and JT duke it out over the solo section and Marcelo jumps in on maracones. The band invites most of PRD Mais to the stage for Semente. Woodwind legend Carlos Malta takes a solo on soprano sax, then switches to vocals (kind of). They take the outro on their own. My favorite part of the night. Shaun wrecks shop on talkbox during Sleeper. Malta storms the stage for the encore of Lingus and the four horns trade. Brazilian harmonica player Gabriel Grossi takes the solo. A wonderful night all around.
