Merida Events: Singing and Dancing for Everyone!




We’ve Moved!

This week, the team that brings you Yucatan Living moved our offices from our little Cho’hol (mouse-hole in Mayan, we’re told…) up in the Santa Ana district of the Centro down to our new casa y oficina (house and office) in the San Sebastian district. We went from being north of the zocalo, to what we are affectionately calling SoMe (pronounced SEW-may), for South Merida, about ten blocks south of the zocalo. We’ve moved from a place where it was hard to find parking to a place where it is hard to find a backyard without a dog or a rooster (our own included!). Instead of being near the Fiesta Americana, now we’re near the Cemetery. We’re about ten minutes farther away from Paseo Montejo, but ten minutes closer to the aiport. The neighborhood, like most in the Centro Historico except Santa Ana and Santiago, has a smattering of new foreigners mixed in with the Meridanos who have been here for generations. We love our new home (and office!) and promise to have an article and those all-important photos for everyone to see as soon as we’ve hung some art on the walls! Stay tuned…

Yucatan Living Danza la Fiesta de Cri-Cri (Dance Party for Cri-Cri)
For those who ask about bringing children to Yucatan, we should tell you that there are many (many!) children’s events that we do not report in our weekly calendar of events because most of us are adults and our children are adults. If you would like information about what there is to do for children here, just leave a request in the comments and we will do our best to get the answers you need. For example, Cri-Cri is a very famous singing cricket, much like Jiminy Cricket – except that Cri-Cri appears to be about 6 years older than Jiminy Cricket. There isn’t a person, young or old, who hasn’t heard of Cri-Cri, whose songs are sung to children throughout the country. This is going to be a wonderful performance for children, and exposing children to the theater at an early age is excellent training for a lifetime of pleasure.

Coming Next Week (and not to be missed…)

On Tuesday, April 15th, at Jazzin’ Merida, the RETURN of The Legendary Yucatones!!
Gary DeRose and Dan Prescher are the last living members of the original Yucatones, the band whose critical Cleveland Period and now-famous “Cuyahoga Sessions” recordings forever changed the course of American roots rock. In 1979, after the rise of Disco, DeRose and Prescher broke up the band and went their separate ways just months before the rest of the band, including the legendary bassist Pop “Pop” Parker and veteran session drummer Cairo Moon, died in a group spelunking accident in Knobnock, Kentucky.
Fortune then blew the two remaining Yucatones around the globe. Following the loss and subsequent re-attachment of his left leg in mishap that ended a short-lived crab-fishing career, DeRose became a street busker in Copenhagen where he eventually opened his own head shop. Prescher joined a group of roving fire twirlers and, after a painful series of skin grafts and hair transplants, settled in Phuget, Thailand, where he sold elephant rides and managed a small hotel.

In 2007, the pair met again by chance on a knee-stocking fetish blog and discovered that they were both planning trips to Merida, Mexico, for the summer. Reunited, the two remaining Yucatones still carry the torch for the straightforward roots rock that made the original band one of the most influential yet unheralded underground folk groups of the last century. We are so lucky that they chose Merida…. don’t miss this night of fun and music!

Also on the 15th…
Worried about what might happen if you die here in Merida, away from your homeland, friends and family? There are things you can do to prepare for this possibility that will make things much easier on your survivors. Find out all about it at the next Merida Men’s Club meeting on the 15th. Dog Sunday in Merida

Dog Sunday Comin’ Round Again
The playdate for dogs is coming back in a new location. A donated private lot is going to be the scene for this weekly doggie gathering… come join us and participate in a new doggie park! We’ll start next Sunday, April 20.

Admission: Free

10 Responses to “Merida Events: Singing and Dancing for Everyone!”

  1. Will be in Merida next week and would love to drop by the Yucatones Conert.
    Where is it going to be and what time does it start.

    Thanks.

    PS
    Yucatan Living is a wonderful web site.

  2. That would be on April 15 at 9 pm. Doors open at 7:30 PM. That date should be fairly easy to remember: the day Lincoln died, the day the Titanic sunk and US tax day. And now, the day you first heard the Yucatones!

  3. You don’t know how fortunate you are to be able to see The LEGENDARY Yucatones at all. I opened for them one fateful night, and if their management hadn’t lost their tour proceeds in an ill-advised pyramid scheme, they could’ve bought tickets and been on the plane with me, Richie and The Big Bopper. Instead, they had to catch a ride on a goat truck to the next show and the rest, as they say, is Yuca-history. Oh that fickle finger of fate…

  4. Unless I am really not reading well, I still cannot locate where the concert will be held.

    Thanks for information in advance.
    h

  5. H – The performance will be at a club called JAZZ IN MERIDA, which is located on Calle 56, between Calle 51 and Calle 53, on April 15th at approximately 9pm. Speaking for myself and Cleetus X, we will look forward to seeing you there. Be sure to say hello.

  6. H – The show by The LEGENDARY Yucatones will be at JAZZ IN MERIDA located on Calle 56 between Callles 53 & 55 or 53 & 51, basically in Centro, on April 15th, at 9pm. Be sure to stop by the stage and say hello…

  7. Hey! Any chance we women who live here, alone, and want the same info can get it too? I think it is really important to know about. In San MIguel de Allende they have the “24 hour society”. This long time group has everyone’s info and wishes and takes care of business if the need arises. Maybe there are those who know about this and would like to do something similar here.

  8. Sorry I forgot to say I am speaking about the 15th when the Men’s Club will talk about what happens if you die here in Merida.

  9. Did you hear about the “Ambulante – Gira de documentales”? It seems to be an interesting project of various documentarys on politics, society, art, travel, etc., shown in different cinemas in Mérida (Altabrisa, ESAY, Teatro Mérida, La 68). It started yesterday and will run until April 17th. Look it up at http://www.ambulantes.com.mx

    Saludos

  10. Nancy,
    There is an informal group of women that have exchanged information that I know about. So far, that sort of thing has just been among friends. We will be publishing the information that will be presented at the Merida Mens Club here on Yucatan Living right after their talk. You can then get in touch with them and take it from there.
