Default I don't Live In LA..

But If I did I would go to this show..

http://www.greektheatrela.com/events...ls.asp?id=2251

Quote:
Los Lobos, the beloved Grammy®-winning band from East L.A., have announced their first annual music festival to be held in their hometown of Los Angeles at the iconic Greek Theatre on May 5, 2012. The 1st Annual Los Lobos Cinco de Mayo Festival will feature performances by preeminent LA bands Los Lobos, X and Mariachi El Bronx, with special guests Neko Case and Alejandro Escovedo joining Los Lobos on stage. The festival was born out of a desire to have a branded event for the community-conscious band to celebrate food, culture and music in their hometown. It promises to be an unforgettable night, taking place during the opening week of the Greek Theatre’s new season.

“We are happy and proud to announce the 1st Annual Los Lobos Cinco de Mayo Festival,” says Steve Berlin of Los Lobos. “After discussing it for what seems like years it's amazing to actually see it come to fruition, and it's made all the more special by having our great friends X, Neko Case, Alejandro Escovedo and Mariachi El Bronx join us. We think it's going to be a joyous and amazing evening of music.”

Los Lobos is currently on tour in support of Tin Can Trust, an album that speaks to the time and place in which it was conceived. Los Lobos is a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.
If you have never seen Los Lobos in concert and are in the LA area I highly recommend you go. If you have go anyway.

You wrote how you heard of them, but maybe I'm assuming you haven't heard their music.

Not being a smart ass or at the risk of.. Tec are you familiar and or a fan of their music?

I'm biased because I've been a fan as longer than some of you have been alive, and I've seen them live 8 or 9 times in the last 25 years or so. I've never left a show unsatisfied and always wish they would play longer.

They are world class musicians considered by some to be among the greatest American bands ever.

XC, you can listen to their stuff on their website for free

I am familiar with their music, but not a big fan as you. I would say I was hooked as a kid from la bamba soundtrack even though those were all cover songs.

Listened to a few tracks here and there.

Not sure if they were covered in the documentary Chicano Rock or the other documentary Latino Music USA in Chicano Wave part of the series.

I've always found it odd that they are more popular with White people than Chicanos yet their music is so varied that it is a very good representation of the Chicano experience and culture..

Anyway If anyone goes or is planning on going take picture and post them here please!!

True. Texas is crazy on drug laws too right? I would pull an Edwin valero in prison if I went for having some of that nasty Texas shwag...
