Los Lobos to perform two shows this weekend
Los Lobos, touring in support of the band's Grammy-nominated album Tin Can Trust, will be performing at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Saturday, Dec. 18 and at the House of Blues Sunset Strip on Sunday, Dec. 19. The additional good news for fans of the quintet is that Los Lobos will perform the song "On Main Street" on "Conan" on Tuesday night, Dec. 21.
I've had a chance to play the album and it's fantastic. From the midtempo roots rock of "I'll Burn It Down" to the infectious Spanish language "Yo Canto" gem and wonderful guitar-anchored Americana instrumental "Do The Murray," Tin Can Trust is another winning effort from the East L.A. rockers.
Another note: if you can't catch Los Lobos this weekend, remember that the band will be opening for Eric Clapton on the West Coast leg of his tour in February and March of 2011.
