Café Tacuba at the Greek Theatre

rubén, café tacuba

Summer concert season continued last week with the much-anticipated Café Tacuba show at the Greek Theater. As soon as I heard about the show, I purchased pre-sale pit tickets. I’ve been to the Greek Theatre twice before. And although it’s a nice venue for a summer night, I know I prefer to see los Tacubos in a smaller, more intimate setting.

More photos and short review, highlights, lowlights, and setlist after the jump.

Review: Awesome. This was my 11th (!) show. No, I’m not tired of them.


Highlights: Mediodía; hearing lead singer Rubén Albarrán show off his voice with Una Mañana; and hearing all the guys sing! Also, they played two songs from Reves/Yosoy (2000), Locomotor and La Muerte Chiquita. I’ve never heard the latter live. Being close and taking lots of cool pictures. Finally, I invited a friend who had never seen los Tacubos live. So, seeing him awed was pretty cool too. Oh, and a little souvenir.

El Gallo Gas!

Lowlight: getting my toe stepped on and dodging dudes as they were moshing during La Chica Banda. I shouldn’t fear for my safety during the song honoring the women. Ugh. Dumb boys.

    It looks like it was so much fun. Ugh, I wanted to go so bad but I couldn’t find anyone that wanted to go with me.

    Tiiite. That looked like fun, plus you got a pick out of it. By the way, those are really good picks!
