Nortec Collective's performance marked a lot of firsts for Open Bar. First use of the back patio at Veronica People's Club, first use of wireless transmissions, first use of a trumpet! Dudes rolled in looking like the staff at the Apple store, electronic devices in hand, and amazed us with their tech-savvy know-how. Since then, Nortec Collective has been nominated for a Grammy for their album, Bulevar 2000, where one can find a studio recording of "Punta Banda"—though we must insist that it's better live in a Greenpoint backyard.
