Los Lobos

Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 8:00 pm

Back at The Gordon by popular demand, the hard working Mexican American band Los Lobos – comprised of David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin – leaps headfirst into their fifth decade with the fresh and exciting new Gates of Gold, their first full length studio album since 2010.

According to Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos, “We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.”

Renown for dynamic songwriting, deeply poetic lyrics, romantic and spiritual themes and eclectic blend of musical styles, Gates of Gold features moody, atmospheric folk and blues rockers, booming drums, distorted electric guitars, hypnotic sound effects and lyrics that allow for multiple earthly and spiritual interpretations.

Los Lobos fans will quickly recall “La Bamba,” their worldwide crossover hit from the 1987 film which reached #1 on the U.S. and UK singles chart. Rolling Stone summed up their distinctive, diverse, freewheeling fusion of rock, blues, soul and Mexican folk music: “This is what happens when five guys create a magical sound, then stick together…to see how far it can take them.”

Please note that dancing is permitted at your seat and near the stage.
