What's going on, Albuquerque?
Stuart Dyson is once again late to the party. The El Rey went dark months ago (back in October, even?) and the owners have been looking for a new tenant since at least December.
Hi kids: Call it "El Rey." Because when you say "The El Rey," you are saying The The Rey. Yes, I am being pedantic, but it chafes. Not to mention the egregious use of the adjective "amazing" in that El Rey story. AIIIIYEEEEEE. #banamazing.
The article about Christy Bird is here. Amazingly, all of the comments are supportive and positive - pretty rare for the KOB comment section.
And OBTS: Perhaps The El Rey should seek funding from The Los Angeles Angels? Such redundancy would be amazing!
And yet The The played El Rey circa 25 years ago.
I saw the Los Lobos band there for the La Pistola y El Corazon tour!
Well played, SLF!
If you're going to be picky about a translation, do it right - "Because when you say "The El Rey," you are saying The The Rey.King." The actual name of the place is "El Rey Theater", which means, "The King Theater". Which makes more sense than "The King" (which may be trademarked by Burger King, anyway...) (Great comment, btw, SLF)
Anyway, Kathy Zimmer probably benefited pretty well from the $700K that the previous leasee pumped into the building - I don't know if she has to pay it back - but having new bathrooms is probably worth going there - http://www.abqjournal.com/165211/news/club-el-rey-opens-tonight-2.html
Maybe Neal C could throw a show or two there....
The El Rey is very near the Rio Grande River.
'Amazing' is almost pleasant when placed next to 'awesome'. -The Dee
