If you want to guarantee a spot at the venue, don't wait until the last minute. I don't know if show will sell out.

Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza — globalFEST on the Road: The New Golden Age of Latin Music
The New Golden Age of Latin Music is being forged right here in the U.S. with Mexican-American communities emerging as hotbeds of musical creativity, blending upbeat styles that reflect shared cultural identities. Orkesta Mendoza and Las Cafeteras are two of today’s most exciting groups forging inspired new paths for Latin and Latin-American music. The infectious indie-mambo band Orkesta Mendoza mixes a multitude of Latin styles like cumbia, merengue, and ranchera, through a funky mambo and post-punk prism, creating a truly one-of-a-kind sound. Alternative Chicano band Las Cafeteras recreate traditional Afro-Caribbean Son Jarocho music in a wildly vibrant style. Their rousing socially-conscious messages, in English and Spanglish, tell stories of a community that is looking for love and fighting for justice, and have audiences dancing in their seats.
