Lo Mas Chingon
Totally groovy Mexican-American psych-soul quartet Chicano Batman released their new album, Freedom is Free to much acclaim on Friday, March 3. The auspicious new album coincides with their cover story over at the LA Weekly, which is a helluva paper. And now, you dear readers, can get in on all this buena suerte when Chicano Batman lands at Launchpad on Monday, March 13. The new album expands on the bands diffuse Afro-cuban influences, with the Los Angeles Times gushing, “Freedom expands the sonic map to emphasize black music from pretty much everywhere—Afro-Cuban rumbas to Fela Kuti’s hard-swinging resistance jams, Isaac Hayes’ virtuoso orchestral arrangements to hip-hop’s way of absorbing any culture it touches." Á la modies, brodies! You can catch these awesome innovators live and in person here in Burque for a small fee. It'll only cost you quince dolares to get in to see a 21+ gig where the musicians wear '70s style tuxedos, the playing is deft and the good times roll off the stage like hot refritos sliding their way home to a grateful panzón.
