NYE with Volcán
Saturday, December 31

To describe SA thirteen-piece Volcán simply as a talented nueva orqestra Latina hardly prepares you for the band’s explosive, transfixing sound. This deconstructed cumbia/Latin pop group, hot from the get go, dropped its first EP, Ritmo, Cultura, y Amor, back in October, and it’s one of our favorite releases of the year. But, to truly know Volcan, and bear witness to the group’s power to move the body and the mind, you must seek the live experience. And, from where we’re sitting, there’s likely no better time to catch Volcán than on New Year’s Eve, an ideal backdrop for the passion and hope of the young outfit’s music. And, if passion and hope seem to have fled you, on the final night of the year, Volcán should prove a fine soundtrack for any dance into oblivion. $5.00, 8:00pm, Brick at Blue Star, 108 Blue Star, (210) 262-8653, — JC
