Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitán

Valley Performing Arts Center

18111 Nordhoff Street, Northridge, CA 91330

7:30pm

In a demand return engagement, the world’s best mariachi band presents a festive holiday gala of music, dance and regional classics such as “La Bikina,” “Cielito Lindo,” “Guadalajara” and the all-time favorite, “La Bamba.”

Revered as guardians of the mariachi legacy, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán presents a festive repertoire of rhythms, dance, and vocals for an exciting evening of pageantry and musical virtuosity. Founded in 1897, the quintessential kings of Mexican folk music earned their reputation as el mejor mariachi del mundo (the best mariachi group in the world) by virtue of their commitment to tradition and emphasis on superior musicianship and singing ability. Breaking new ground, the legendary group added to its prolific collection a first-ever mariachi opera — Cruzar La Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon), which debuted in November 2010 and was created by director José "Pepe" Martinez, Sr.

Rashaun Mitchell and Stephin Merritt: Performance

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:30pm

The intoxicating choreography of former Merce Cunningham dancer Rashaun Mitchell meets the fanciful musical stylings of Magnetic Fields singer-songwriter Stephin Merritt in a space of liquid luminosity—a beguiling visual design created by installation artist Ali Naschke-Messing with lighting design by Davison Scandrett. A celebration of the mysteries in the art of performance, of on-the-spot wit and invention, and of the absurd, this one-of-a-kind collaboration is inspired by an observation from Richard Avedon: “We all perform. It’s what we do for each other all the time, deliberately or unintentionally. It’s a way of telling about ourselves in the hope of being recognized as what we’d like to be.” Mitchell is joined by dancers Hiroki Ichinose, Cori Kresge and Silas Riener; Merritt performs solo, on and off the stage.

Thur-Sat 8:30pm & Sun 7:00pm

Dustbowl Revival

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

10:00pm

“In a city like Los Angeles, home to musical stars in nearly every known genre, handing out the Best Live Band title is not easy. But the free-thinking local collective Dustbowl Revival's upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear.” — LA WEEKLY

"Americana swing that was so fun I went back to see them again the next day." — ROLLING STONE

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music - a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.
