[7/29] Preview: Hillside Concert Series – Los A-T Boyz and Ruben Ramos & The Mexican Revolution

HillsideTonight, the Hillside Concert Series continues at the A.B. Cantu Pan-American Recreation Center. Always a free, family-friendly event, the series features Latino performers of all musical backgrounds at the eastside neighborhood venue. This evening’s lineup includes two Austin Tejano powerhouses: Los A-T Boyz and the iconic Ruben Ramos and the Mexican Revolution.

Los A-T Boyz, formerly known as Alma Tejana, are known for their high energy live show, with la familia Rodriguez masterfully working the stage through each cumbia, ranchera, and charanga.

Ruben Ramos and the Mexican Revolution almost need no introduction. Led by the charismatic, silver-haired Ramos, the horn-driven ensemble has won Grammy Awards and maintained a solid following for decades.

Long story short: Two of Austin’s best groups, and if anyone hasn’t seen Ruben Ramos perform live…well they’re truly missing one of the great things about this town. Odds are very good a number of local Tejano legends will also jump on stage as well.

The A.B. Cantu Pan-American Recreation Center is located at 2100 E. 3rd Street, at 3rd and Robert Martinez Jr. Streets in East Austin. Music is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. every Tuesday in July. Admission is free, all ages are welcome. View the Facebook event here.
