“What they’ve done with their influences is create this really impressive mix of rockabilly, cumbia, jazz, flamenco, and they perform it in both English and in Spanish – very cool sound.” – NPR’s Alt Latino

With their third album, ‘Mar Abierto’, they chose to challenge themselves and create a concept album.  “We are all fans of hearing an album from start to finish, where one song ends and you start humming the next track before it even begins.  We have found a way to connect all the songs on this record, with a running theme throughout,” according to a band statement.  “Making a conceptual album has always been a dream, and we are all excited and proud.”

Hear these two great new bands, and selections from ‘Mar Abierto’, in the casual atmosphere of Nectar, including out on the covered patio.  Tickets cost $13 – $15, for the 21+ only show, with VIP seats at tables available.  Purchase tickets on EventBrite.
