My summer officially began last week after a harrowing finals week, but I never feel like summer has really begun without a good concert.
I’ve enjoyed the free concerts at California Plaza downtown with Grand Performances. Free is nice, but it only takes me so far and most of the time I’ve got to shell out some hard earned cash for other great shows.
On Friday I’ll see LA favorites Ozomatli at California Plaza. I love their music, but live is much, much better.
Next Sunday I’ll enjoy some of the best from MÈxico. CafÈ Tacuba, Kinky and Ely Guerra will be at the Anaheim House of Blues. I’m most excited about this show because seeing CafÈ Tacuba (my favorite band) live a few times a year is what helps me maintain my sanity.
Summer has really begun and my pockets will be empty soon. I’ll be back with reviews and more on rock en espaÒol in LA.
