As part of their 20th anniversary celebrations, Mexican rock band Café Tacvba is touring 20 cities. Austin is one of them. I got last minute tickets to see them perform at La Zona Rosa. As usual, great concert. And even though I have seen them play live many times (Feria Monterrey, La Huasteca, ACL TV Show, ACL Festival, Stubbs twice, La Zona Rosa just to name a few) it’s always a great show, plus this time I had to bring a newbie.
One of my favorite bands and by far the band I’ve seen live the most (either seven or eight times) played at Stubb’s last Sunday. Almost three hours of high energy music including many songs from their latest albumSiNo.
I got to see Café Tacuba today live in the small TV studio where they shoot the famous Austin City Limits show. Front row… Tune in to see me jumping to the tune of “La Chica Banda”.Oh yeah, and I have tickets for their concert tomorrow.
(Thanks to Jaramillo who went early and got in line to get the tickets)
Update 7/12/2005: Just returned from the concert. It was much longer and better…
Last Saturday we went to the second Austin City Limits Music Festival. This huge three day event is hosted in Zilker Park. Why did I go on Saturday (and not on Sunday, when R.E.M. played)?
To see Café Tacvba, of course. They are, I think, the best band in México today. The concert was excellent and much better in every aspect than anything else I saw at the festival. To bad it was so short.
