Together with Tierra

What a gorgeous weekend it's turning out to be!  I just got back from the P.S. 1 (MoMa) Warm Up series and caught the tail end of it with British DJ duo, Horse Meat Disco doing their magic. Highlights such as the instrumental version of Human League's "Don't You Want Me" made the crowd scream the lyrics to the song in unison.  A great dance and response song idea. Also, Ashford  Simpson's "It Seems To Hang On" sounding gorgeous as always and a high spirited long version of Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way" closing the evening's festivities.  It has been a while since I have attended the Warm Up at P.S.1.  I feel the venue space, although outdoors, is challenging to have a good flow air  and good dance space.  Having said that, it still draws a huge crowd and the spirit overall was dance happy today.  So to "warm you up" this Saturday, I'm going total '80s R&B with Tierra's "Together".  Tierra is a Latin R&B band originally from Los Angeles, that was established in the late '70s by former El Chicano members, Steve Salas, David Torres and Andre Baeza.  "Together" was their biggest hit, written by Gamble & Huff.  Enjoy it and have a beautiful and restful Labor Day Weekend!
