Volcán Single Release Show

While it may be true that Volcán, a nueva orquestra Latina de San Anto, has been gigging more frequently of late (around SA and elsewhere in Tejas), we can scarcely get enough of the powerhouse performers. The large group — which features as many as 12 players, all arrayed around gifted, swoon-worthy lead singer Jose Huizar and principal songwriter Jaime Mejia — offers up organic yet impressively sophisticated music that’s a total cultural mestizaje, combining elements of classic psych-rock with jazz, soul, cumbia, and Latin pop. Volcán’s music, while thoroughly fresh, throbs with the ancient rhythm the jungle must hear as it dances to the ocean. Aside from a few early singles, the band has only released one EP since forming in late 2014: the masterful, four-song tease that is Ritmo, Cultura y Amor (which you can dig on iTunes and Spotify). On Friday, the band will play a special show to celebrate the release of a new single, “Corazon de Piedra,” which we’re hoping is a forerunner to more new music. In any case, there’s no excuse not to catch Volcán on a Friday night. $7, 10:30pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 735-7775, thelimelightsa.com. – James Courtney
