[10/20] Preview: Gilbert Alba Y Super City, Marky Lee y Hache III at Texas Club Bar & Grill

On Saturday, October 20, the Texas Club Bar and Grill will feature Tejano music  and…wait for it…breakdancing. Austin’s own Gilbert Alba Y Super City Band will take the stage, as will Houston’s Marky Lee y Hache III. Fans can also catch up with former breakdancing champions Rolando’s B-Boys.

Alba’s resume is impressive. With over four decades as a Tejano musician and bandleader, the guitarist and singer also spent some time with the legendary horn-driven group, The Latin Breed. His Super City Band will also welcome special guest vocalist Carlos Meda, a runner-up in last weekend’s Tejano Idol competition.

Hache III plays a brand of Tejano heavily infused with the more traditional Conjunto style, with strong lead accordion and a set list full of polkas. Frontman Marky Lee began his career with Lockhart’s Augustin Ramirez before moving on to The Hometown Boys, and most recently, Hache III.

The wildcard of the evening is a special appearance by Rolando’s B-Boys, an Austin-based breakdancing group that earned national acclaim in the early 1980s.

The Texas Club Bar and Grill is located on Burleson Road just south of Ben White Boulevard in southeast Austin. The cover charge is $10 before 9 p.m. $12 cover after 9 p.m. 21+ are welcome. For more information call (512) 541-7621.
