Adios Amigo is a band spawned from love. While living abroad in Santiago, Chile frontman Johnny Major (drummer for Il Gato) met, and eventually married, a Chilean woman for whom he wrote the songs featured on Amigo’s debut, self-titled EP. Dreamy and soft, but possessing enough rhythm to warrant wave motions with your arm out a cruising car window, the album’s five tracks are over sooner than you’d like. Grab it for free over on Bandcamp and stream it below.
Over the next month, the band gives us two chances to catch hometown gigs while they prep their sophomore album. The first is tonight at Hotel Utah where they’ll be supporting Sami.The.Great (8pm, $7, 21+), and the other is Friday, April 20th at Thee Parkside providing support for Goldenboy (9pm, $8, 21+).
To ready yourself, mellow out to this recent live performance of “Play You” at Grant and Green.
