Bud Light Latin Music Series
Presented by Celebrate Brooklyn! & LAMC
Known for their “unpredictable mix of traditional Latin, earthy rhythm & blues, roiling funk, and rock & roll wallup” (LA Weekly), Los Lobos began playing together while still attending their East L.A high school back in the early 1970s. The group built an early audience within L.A.’s punk and roots-rock music scene, opening for hometown rock heroes the Blasters at the Sunset Strip’s legendary Whisky A-Go-GO in 1982. The band went on to cover La Bamba, the Mexican folk standard initially transformed into a rock and roll classic in 1958 when it was recorded by Ritchie Valens. Asked to remake the signature hit for the forthcoming biopic about the Chicano rock star, Los Lobos’ 1987 cover of the song went on to become a massive hit, charting at number one that year. Their most recent album, Tin Can Trust, is the first collection of new original material in over four years and Rolling Stone raves, “This is what happens when five guys create a magical sound, then stick together for 30 years to see how far it can take them.”
Mexico City-based alternative pop group Hello SeaHorse! are on the rise with their “knack for writing pop songs that hit you immediately.” (Stereogum) In 2009, the band won the La Zona award at the MTV Video Music Awards LatinoAmerica, and have shared the stage with bands such as Beastie Boy, Jarvis Cocker, and The Killers.
Brooklyn-based electronic rock group Zigmat “plays punky songs spiked with electronics; occasionally, singer Monica Rodriguez switches to Spanish. The international flavor is part Yeah Yeah Yeahs, part Brazilian Girls.” (Time Out NY)
