Last Saturday night there was a schoolmatesâ€™ get-together of the Colegio Alemán de Las Palmas (German School). We were about 40 old friends from different classes who finished high school in the early 90â€™s; hard to believe but it will soon be 20 years since! The event had eloquently been published on Facebook as â€œShow me your wrinklesâ€.
We met at the â€œRockola Clubâ€ in Las Palmas, a live music night club recently opened by Oliver alias â€œel Rubioâ€, one of our old schoolmates and unconditional rockâ€™nâ€™roll fan. The club offers live music from the very best Rock and Blues bands of Gran Canaria, e.g. The Beatmaps (playing Beatlesâ€™ versions) or Red Marks (http://www.myspace.com/redmarksrock) only to name some. I truly recommend a visit to Rockola if you are fond of music of the 60â€™s and 70â€™s. The address is Olof palme 37 (next to Mesa y Lopez).
We had great fun. It was only the day after I realized I am not 18 anymore, what a shame. But I really look forward to repeating the event next year again at Rockola. So Keep on Rockinâ€™, Rubio!
