LAMC: Belanova/Los Amigos Invisibles
August 4, 2006 - August 4, 2006
By Ernest Barteldes
Prospect Park
Brooklyn

Belanova began their set on a pleasant Brooklyn evening with Cyndi Lauper-like (in voice, not dress style) Denise Guerrero delivering a rock-inflected tune that quickly caught the audience's attention. For "Rosa Pastel", Edgard Huerta dropped the guitar and switched to the bass - his playing wasn't too impressive at first, but then he blew the audience away with his funk/disco fingering technique. The band addressed the audience exclusively in Spanish, which was not such a good idea,  since there were many in the audience who did not speak the language.

 

The audience responded well to the band's cover of Donna Summer's perennial hit  "I Feel Love", and when they performed   The Cure's "Boys Don't Cry",  they did so as clearly taking inspiration from Madonna's early material.  In another very interesting moment,  Edgard Huerta performed a beautiful, jazzy bass solo that slowly evolved into more of a lounge mode.

 

They closed with "Sexy", a rocky tune that drew considerable applause from the audience.

 

Los Amigos Invisibles hit the stage by bringing their brand of techno tunes to the fore, keeping the energy to a high level. The presence of stage lights turned The Prospect Park Bandshell into a open-air night club, and soon the audience that packed the stage was freely dancing to the band's groove. They clearly draw inspiration from the likes of New Order, Depeche Mode and other similar bands, but they clearly bring their own spice into the proceedings.
