Tonight the Chuco Town reggae band Radio La Chusma is in town for a concert at Flamingo Cantina on 6th. They will be part of a reggae bill that includes Dub South Records recording artist Sol Tribe from San Antonio and ska/punk band Young Costello from Austin. It is a great reason to get your weekend started early or to just double the coffee tomorrow at work.
Self described as a cumbia-reggae-rock band, Radio La Chusma exemplifies the border vibe that only a border city band could pull off in a reggae band. The group even adds four part harmonies and violin solos. While they are certainly not the first band to fuse reggae with Latin rhythms, Radio La Chusma do it well.
Flamingo Cantina is located at 515 E. 6th Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. $7 cover at the door. 21+ welcome. Visit the Facebook event page here.
