Old Polka Madre Videos

A day or so after I bought Edna Lu the tea bus (early 2008), I picked up a gypsy polka band called Polka Madre. Their van had broken down in Mexico and they needed to get to their gigs up the coast. I gave them a ride from LA to SF, where I had my old truck that I let them take up to Portland where they had a similar bus to Edna waiting for them.

They project video taken along their journeys as part of their show. They’re not extremely exciting, but I though they were worth archiving here. Here’s a couple samples:
