Living in Palermo Soho, a neighborhood filled with television and radio stations, chic restaurants and fashionable shops, it is no stretch to say that I come across a lot of celebrities. Of course, I never recognize any of them because they happen to be Argentine celebrities.
On Friday night, my luck with Buenos Aires celebrity spotting changed when James Murphy and the rest of LCD Soundsystem sat down for dinner a few tables away from my girlfriend and me at 1880 in San Telmo. I even snapped this quick spy photo as proof.
Apparently the band wanted to sample some of Argentina's famous beef before taking the stage at today's Creamfields festival. Although something like 70,000 people are going to see the band live in concert, watching them wolf down meat at a local parrilla made my sighting just a little more special.
