Their full-flavored sound is a mezcla of rockabilly, cumbia, jazz and Gypsy. This multicultural cookery got its start when a 20-year old trumpet wielding firebrand of an English singer moved to Spain to form a band with a rockabilly double bassist and the "best flamenco/punk guitarist" in town. Clear away any buffelgrass when Jenny & The Mexicats blaze a trail towards the Rialto Theatre. With slamming Oakland quartet Bang Data. "It's enough to drive a motherfucker loco"...

It would be easy to make comparisons. What singer-songwriter Leila Lopez does is all her own. Reckless and blind, hammering nails, she is courageous. At Crooked Tooth Brewing Co...

Filled with glitches and sonic abstractions, like the movement of fluttering butterfly wings that a camera shutter cannot quite capture, the effect is disquieting. The timbre in Lopez's voice is like that of a child reciting prayers before bed to an unseen god to "take his blessed soul." Nightmare or a lullaby? One is never quite sure. If you are hoping to attend the vinyl re-release of Brian Lopez's Prelude you still may be in luck. Although tonight's Exo Bar show is sold-out, an encore performance at the same venue has been added for Sunday, Sept 15...
