Los Lobos

Saturday, August 20, at the House of Blues.

Coffinberry Beachland Ballroom Friday, August 19
Los Lobos exploded out of the barrios of Los Angeles in 1983 with And a Time to Dance, a seven-song mini-album that meshed Mexican folk music, blues, rock, and R&B into a unique sound long before the terms "Americana" and "roots rock" were standard music lingo. In the early '90s, albums like The Neighborhood and Kiko showed it to be one of America's most innovative bands, adding dark musical textures and experimental percussion techniques to its sound without diluting its dedication to homegrown rock and roll. Los Lobos' current tour continues its 30th-anniversary celebration, showcasing the folkloric music of Colombia, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, and emphasizing the Mexican folk music the band members grew up with.
