Diez Y Seis

It’s a common thing to see a lot of bars and businesses bringing the party on Cinco de Mayo every May. It’s also a bit odd, considering it’s not the biggest celebrated Mexican holiday.

May 5 commemorates an 1862 victory against the French in the Battle of Puebla, but a day of much greater importance is 16 de Septiembre, Mexican Independence Day, when Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla gathered his parishioners at Dolores Guanajuato to urge them to fight for independence from Spain. Mexicans honor the day with Hidalgo’s address to the people, El Grito.

Following this CliffNotes version of a specific chapter in Mexico’s history, the AMM brings you details about a grand Diez Y Seis celebration tonight at the Far Out Lounge and Stage. Es un Sabado gigante con música y baile de Adriana Rosso, Easy Compadre (“Besos de Menta” is featured on today’s AMM), Grupo Frackaso, Chico Selfie, y La Fermata. Doors at 5 p.m.

The stark black and white imagery from these formative years carries a unique fluidity and exuberance, but Flores was […]
