Caifanes, one of the most important and influential Spanish rock bands formed in 1987, has both shaped and liberated new generations of the rock scene. Their first album, “El Negro” established Caifanes’ identity both musically and conceptually. Songs like “Viento,” and “Mátenme Porque Me Muero,” were atmospherically influenced by post-punk groups like The Cure, but the lyrics spoke to a particular kind of spirituality adopted youth across Mexico and Latin America. “La Negra Tomasa,” broadened their appeal and their connection with fans is still as powerful today as it was in the beginning.
Maldita Vecindad, formed after Mexico City’s 1985 earthquake, is one of Mexico’s most prominent bands. They have been true ambassadors of their homeland, bringing their musical fusion of rhythms and messages of peace and social injustice with songs like “Solin,” “Kumbala,” and one of the classics, “Pachuco.” Recognized for their powerful stage presence, the energy will take over Stubhub Center on Sunday, May 5.
Suicidal Tendencies, Venice Beach’s legendary surf punk icons are bringing three decades of classic punk metal classics to rock the stage with the Latin American heavy weights.
Tijuana No!, the revolutionary band from Baja California’s border town will bring their signature fusion of ska-punk, rock, and tropical rhythms.
Miguel Mateos, Argentina’s original pop-rocker and a pioneer that was instrumental to bringing Spanish language rock to the U.S.
Victimas Del Dr. Cerebro, ciudad Neza’s own visual and musical innovators will definitely put on a show to remember.
Kinky, known for their unique funk, electro-rock sound, will have the crowd dancing with their infectious grooves and catchy tracks.
