This has been a somewhat slow year for Driving Music, even though we were still busy working on projects that were slightly off the radar. We had a line up change – with new drummer Marcello Cals (former Lasciva Lula) joining after Gustavo Matos left -, played a very low key pocket show at an University in Rio and focused on other things but playing live, like recording soundtracks and writing new material. Still, there is no better way to wave the year goodbye than playing live, and that’s what we’re doing next Saturday, at Solar de Botafogo, here in Rio. We’ve been on that stage twice before and it’s one of our favorite venues in town, so we’re happy to celebrate the passing of the year in full, electrified fashion. Expect to hear a lot more from us in 2014.
