    Default Cafe Tacuba

    Who knew they were so big. i went to the hollywood bowl to see groove armada and cafe tacuba and it was sold out. at first i was like ok, w/e, but then i realized how crazy you had to be to sell out the bowl. they are like the backstreet boys of mexico. i personally didnt like them too much but wow, apparently everyone else did.

    btw groove armada was B.A. "i see you baby, shakin' that ass, shakin' that ass, shakin' that ass." they got 90 year olds dancing

    Groove Armada was exceptional.

    I gotta throw out the props to Cafe Tacuba.
    "Backstreet Boys of Mexico?" I can not relate to at all.

    His hat alone says everything about their creativity and talent.

    Backstreet Boys of Mexico?
    I thought they went by the title the "Mexican" Radiohead? That is how I heard of them. I wondered what they played since their last few albums were really out there....

    Radiohead? That makes even less sense.

    Cafe cover genres from rock to ska to punk to Ranchera etc, but they don't fit anywhere near Radiohead.

    You should hear some of their old albums..they were trying to do some Aphex Twin/Warp stuff at one point it was pretty epic...

    Reves/Yo soy was pretty radiohead-esque, although it came a year out before Radiohead released Kid A (which is what people believe reves/yo soy is so similar to). Hmmm.

    I think Reves/YoSoy is my favorite release so far. Re and Avalancha are also really solid. Avalancha is basically an album of covers, but they really made them their own. Really good stuff. I wish I'd have been able to see them. Maybe when the new album comes out in October, they'll make a stop around here...I hope, I hope!

    They just posted on their myspace that the album gets released October 9 and then they'll start a tour that will start at some festivals in Argentina, then Mexico, then Japan and work it's way to the United States around December. I can't wait. I like the new single.

    Damn I do hope they come through Denver. Too bad their US tour is in December so no Red Rocks.

    Yeah, I went to that show with my girlfriend. Cafe Tacuba was amazing. I think the coolest part was that she loved it almost as much as I did...but not quite :-) I wish they had played more from Re though.

    Saw them at coachella but not since. I think they were sort of the dark horse that year. Nobody i was with really knew who they were but they were all getting really crunk by the end of the set. Thats kind of what i like best about coachella. You dont have to be an elitist music snob to have a good time. You dont have to site refrences from an artists earliest/indiest work to be 'allowed' to enjoy them. i love you guys
