East L.A. is taking over Flamingo Cantina this Thursday, November 1, for Dia de los Muertos. Two of the best Latin Alternative bands in the country will share the stage for one incredible night of live music. Attendees will enjoy the psych-rock meets tropicalia stylings of Chicano Batman and the Latin roots rock vibe of headliners La Santa Cecilia.
Chicano Batman’s music is inspired by early ’70s Latino-American soul, ’60s Brazilian Tropicalia, cumbias and psychedelic music. The vintage ruffled tuxedo-clad quartet from are touring in support of their new four-track EP Joven Navegante. Chicano Batman perform at 10 p.m.
Fronted by the dynamic “La Marisoul,” headliners La Santa Cecilia bring together traditional Mexican folk music with Latin soul you can dance to. Think Linda Ronstadt singing for a funkier version of Texas Tornados. The Latin Grammy nominated group is no stranger to Austin as they drew a large crowd at this year’s Pachanga Fest in May and again in August at Flamingo Cantina.
Flamingo Cantina is located at 515 East 6th Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. Cover is $7. 21+ welcome.
