Los Lobos

When: Wed., Jan. 24, 7:30 p.m. 2018

With the mantle of Tex-Mex zydeco rock ‘n’ roll gracing their legacy, Los Lobos have been infusing the American scene with a south-of-the-border flair for more than four decades. They’ve dropped many albums, including 2015’s Gates of Gold, which keeps pace with, e.g., David Hidalgo’s head-nodding, rhythmic songwriting and the all-hands-on-deck knack for getting listeners dancing and thinking. Everything from the upbeat “Made to Break Your Heart” to the downtrodden “There I Go” is of a piece on this one, and one would do well to rewind a bit and revisit the band’s classics, as well. (For my money, their best tune is the haunting “When the Circus Comes,” which details the pain and agony of a relationship fading into the ether.) (Sandy)
