Roxy Nite with La Santa Cecilia and Bomba Estéreo

Se acuerdan del the Roxy? That vintage old staple on Sunset Blvd. is EXACTLY as you remember it from your punk rock-grungy days. I just went and I can tell you.

My good friend Xesus Naranjo invited me to check out a great show last Tuesday with La Santa Cecilia and Bomba Estereo and it was awesome. Hace mucho que no bailaba tanto. (Gracias Mr. X!)

La Santa Cecilia rocks the house at the Roxy.

Super cool music. Bomba Estereo, from Colombia, blew us away.

Both bands are great, alternative, and unique. La Santa Cecilia me encantó con su rollo de latino fusion, cumbia meets rockabilly. Bomba Estereo blew me away with its electronica meets hiphop meets you name it! Very original.  Each band came with its own following, with La Santa Cecilia opening the night and even rendering their own take of “Groove is in the Heart.” Very cool.

The Roxy on Sunset. Still crazy after all these years.

Here’s a video from La Santa Cecilia, “La Negra.” Check it out, it’s good stuff!
