About This Event
(((folkYEAH!))) presents La Luz and Tropa Magica! About La LuzCalifornia band La Luz are experts at making earworms out of sonic contradictions. The music of Shana Cleveland (guitar, vocals), Alice Sandahl (keys, vocals), and Lena Simon (bass, vocals) is, at times, both atmospheric and driving, golden-hued yet weirdly morbid.Their songs interpolate everything from surf rock legends Dick Dale, Link Wray, and Takeshi Teracuchi to the airtight harmonies of the Ronettes and the funhouse organ crescendos of the B-52s. When combined, these influences evoke the sight of a vast and glorious UFO overhead, as the beguiling music of La Luz pulls you in like a tractor beam.La Luz have released three full-length records (2013s Its Alive, 2015s Weirdo Shrine, 2018s Floating Features) and 2012s Damp Face EP.About Tropa MagicaAfter receiving their blessing from Los Tigres Del Norte, East L.A. badasses Thee Commons metamorphosed into new stage outfit Tropa Magica. Still consisting of the chunster Pacheco brothers and their signature psychedelic cumbia fusion, Tropa Magica boasts a troop of new magical sounds, now having added a second guitar and organ keys to their repertoire. Tropa Magica will make their grand debut but welcomed return to Downtown L.A. in March. From there, with most of the year ahead of them, and given their successful track record, the tropical skys the limit.
