Summer Concert Series

By John Wharton

Now that the ‘snow birds’ have gone north, Shelter shows our appreciation for the residents who live in San Miguel year round and give back to the community we love with our Summer Concert Series. Kicking things off this Saturday, Shelter presents The Rolling Stones Live in Havana when the British rockers attracted a million people the same week as President Obama became the first US President to visit Cuba in 88 years.

As the Stones took to the stage under a perfect ‘Havana Moon’ in front of an ecstatic crowd, everyone knew that this was a life-changing cultural moment. Mick Jagger welcomed the massive crowd: “Finally the times are changing, Cuba we are so happy to be here” and joked with his band-mates, describing them as “the revolutionary Ronnie Wood, drummer Charlie Che Watts, and compadre Keith Richards”. The Daily Telegraph calls it, “an epic and history making performance!” See the magic on Shelter’s big screen with surround stereo!

Keeping the Stones rolling, Friday, May 24th at 5 pm: Gimme Shelter. This documentary of The Rolling Stones' 1969 US tour has become a legendary, harrowing symbol of the tragic demise of the "Peace and Love" era. Called "the greatest rock film ever made," the film follows The Rolling Stones on their notorious tour where 300,000 members of the Love Generation collided with a few dozen Hell's Angels at San Francisco's Altamont Speedway and transformed a decade's dreams into disillusionment.

Friday, May 17th at 5 pm, Shelter presents the groundbreaking documentary Buena Vista Social Club. Ry Cooder gathered together some of the greatest names in Cuban music, some as old as their nineties, to collaborate on the best-selling album. According to Boulder Weekly, “The music is incredible enough on its own – but the lives and the culture behind it, that’s what makes this documentary a must-see!”

Every Tuesday at 7:00 pm: Open Mic. You don’t need to perform, but if you want your ten minutes of fame, then this is the place for you! It’s a different group of amateurs and professionals week by week. Locals call it the “Cheers Bar” of San Miguel. You can do (almost) anything you want for your ten minutes. 80 pesos for audience and 60 pesos for performers (Includes drink).
