Los Lobos rides into Uptown Mix tonight

"The East Los Angeles ensemble Los Lobos has electrified music fans for more than three decades by fusing an extraordinary blend of influences and elements into a highly charged, dynamic ground sound."

"Los Lobos, who perform at the Uptown Mix tonight, have also been pioneers in spotlighting the Latin contribution to pop and rock music, frequently cutting songs (even entire discs) in Spanish and also incorporating traditional Mexican tunes and norteno (a hybrid sound blending Tex-Mex, country and polka, as well as blues and traditional Mexican music) aspects into other releases."

"Their most recent CD The Ride (Hollywood) celebrates that legacy with a series of outstanding collaborations between the group and various artists they've admired since their inception. The disc has been widely deemed to be their greatest, as well as being their most commercially potent. That's quite an achievement since they've previously done such master releases as How Will The Wolf Survive?, By The Light of the Moon, La Pistola Y El Corazon and Neighborhood."

"Los Lobos appears along with Sonia Dada tonight at the Uptown Mix, at the corner of Chet Atkins Place and 20th Ave. S., across from South Street and the Bound'ry. Gates open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10."
