HoCo Fest: 10 Year Anniversary 

This week, Club Congress celebrates the 10 year anniversary of HoCo Fest—a four-day Labor Day weekend music festival with 37 local, national and international acts indoors and outdoors at 311 E Congress St.

However, it's the last night on Sunday, Aug. 31, 7 p.m. when HOCO gets its Latin on with indie-cumbia and mariachi from local favorites Orkestra Mendoza with Mexico City's Mexican Institute of Sound, as well as Carlos Arzate and the Kind Souls, THE JONS, Sweet Ghosts, Mariachi Aztlan, DJ Dirtyverbs and Chicha Dust closing the night (more on the other nights in this week's music section).

It's also a night to do some good. Proceeds go to help Tucson writer, composer and filmmaker Daniel Buckley with funding for his documentary "The Mariachi Miracle," now in production.

"The Mariachi Miracle," slated to debut in spring 2016, looks into the ways that youth mariachi and folklorico dance programs have changed Tucson socially, economically, politically and educationally. "I am so grateful for the support of the Hotel Congress and the musicians performing at this benefit show," Buckley said. "It really shows the community is behind this project.

Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 at the door. For info on HoCo Fest, visit www.hotelcongress.com/club, and on "The Mariachi Miracle," go to www.danielbuckleyarts.com.
