[10/11] Preview: Los Desperadoz at Tejano Ranch

deperadozFriday, Oct. 11, Totally Tejano Fridays continue at Tejano Ranch with Los Desperadoz. The north Austin club will welcome back the popular veteran San Antonio group for another night of classic accordion-driven Tejano with a strong conjunto flavor.

After bursting onto the scene in the late 1980s as Los Test Tube Babes and renaming the group Los Desperadoz, Mike, Lee, and P.J. Villarreal have carried on their family musical legacy with numerous hits, strong fan base, and prolific recording career. Anyone who has spent any amount of time at a Tejano club will likely recognize one of their biggest hits, “El Amor Que Soñe,” often referred to as “the coughing song,” due to the cough heard in various places throughout the song.

Long story short: If you loved the 1990s era of Tejano, with the Wranglers, cowboy hats and boots, and a sound firmly rooted in conjunto, this show is for you.

Tejano Ranch is located at 7601 North Lamar, just south of Highway 183 in north Austin. The doors open at 8 p.m. The cover charge is $10 before 9 p.m, and $12 after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome. The Facebook event is here.
