Dead Can Dance t-shirt buddy at Genii Bash

At Genii Bash I crossed some words with a colleague magician wearing a Dead Can Dance t-shirt about the band's new tour.

I watched them last week and I want to contact this magician in order to exchange opinions about the concert.

Cultural diferences:
Here in Mexico in restaurants the usual rate is 10%.
Bellboys, tourists guides and theater usher (e.g.) is at will, not rate stipulated.
And nobody uses to give tips in taxis.
