Second Act Acts

Day 324 – June 10, 2012

I have written before that the City of Kings is a music lover’s paradise as several popular acts come to this city 12 degrees south of the Equator.

In addition to singers and bands of today (e.g., Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato), Lima, Peru, is a destination for those performing folk who have been around for quite some time.

These folks may not fill the stadiums back in the United States, but they are still popular enough globally to pack the performing venues here.

These acts date from the 1980s…

Can they still be considered “new” or “kids”?

…the 1970s…

I’m so happy to see Nosferatu is still getting gigs ninety years after his big premiere.
