According to the Rialto's website, the pair has ...


... brought an unique instrumental blend of metal, jazz and world music to audiences all over the US. Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero have been playing together for more than fifteen years. First as young thrash metal fans in their native Mexico City, then as innocents abroad and street musicians in Dublin, Ireland at the turn of the millennium, and finally as the globe-straddling, film-scoring, record-breaking artists they are today.

Rodrigo y Gabriela performed on the sound tracks to Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Puss in Boots.Singer, guitarist and eclectic songwriter Zach Heckendorf opened.

Were you there? Tell us how you liked the show! We were across the street watching Billy Sedlmayr, but we're glad that Elliott, at least, figured out how to be two places at once.
