La Voz de Oro

By: Laurie Gallardo

Get hip, music lover. Carrie Rodriguez’s Laboratorio returns tonight to the Cactus Café. It’s an all-star collaborative concert series exploring – and especially expanding – the boundaries of Latin music in America.

Tonight’s celebration is perhaps even more special than usual, by the way. In addition to the line up featuring Rodriguez, Michael Ramos, Roscoe Beck, Alex Marrero and David Pulkingham, there’s a featured guest bringing some classic vocals into the mix – La Voz de Oro himself, legendary Tejano vocalist David Marez. Yes, that Marez – of The Royal Jesters back in the early ’70s, and a major solo artist through the ’80s, ’90s and beyond. We’re talking a genuine treasure here who spans the decades. (Dude. Play “Entre Mas Lejos Me Vaya” for your buddies in El Paso or San Antonio, or…c’mon, you’re gonna have them going crazy with memory-overflow…)

Doors open at 8 p.m. at the Cactus, and the music starts at 8:30 p.m. – but make sure you have your tickets now. This one comes very recommended.
