I picked up the following fliers at JOM, all tempting to me in their own right:

Also, I’m really looking forward to the release of El Cantante, which is due out on August 3. From the trailer, it looks really good, at least from a music/dance perspective. I’m glad more people will learn about Hector Lavoe‘s musical legacy.
