B-Sides: Jarabe Mexicano 

SWEET FUSION

Jarabe Mexicano, a five-piece group from San Diego and Tijuana, offers up just what their name promises, metaphorically that is. Their "Mexican syrup" refers to the mixture of genres that encompass both the music of Mexico and the high-energy music that Jarabe Mexicano performs. Infusing cumbia, rock and reggae sounds in with their renditions of rancheras, huapangos, sones, boleros and more, the group brings new perspectives to mariachi music. Their bi-cultural chops in California and Baja, California have even earned them an endorsement from the U.S. Consulate in Mexico.

You can catch Jarabe Mexicano live at Sea of Glass Center for the Arts (330 E. Seventh St.) on Thursday, July 28. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $4 to $18. You can order yours and find more information at theseaofglass.org. It is an all-ages concert.

    We have no Summer of Love to ponder, no Vietnam War to protest, no miracle drug that's going to save us. But we do have an unpopular president and Sgt. Pepper to marvel over all over again. It's not the same, but it kinda is, and that's about the best splendid time that can be guaranteed for all in 2017.
