Friday, August 28
Bombasta, Los De Esta Noche, El Dusty

On “De la Calle,” Bombasta proves their status as SA’s barrio big band. As Roberto Livar sings in Spanish and raps in English, Bombasta switches from a cumbia beat to a subtle reggaeton feel, as if absorbing the city’s influence on a ride-through with the windows down. On the new, self-titled album, Los De Esta Noche takes a swing at cumbia, ska, rocksteady and Tex-Mex rockabilly, trading Spanish for English as gracefully as they swap out their rhythms. As part of Master Blaster Sound System, Corpus native El Dusty is a dealer of the addictive electrocumbia rhythm. $10, 8pm, Empire Theatre,  224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-5700
