Los Lobos

When: Sat., Aug. 7, 8 p.m. 2010

Courtesy of the quintet's longevity (30 years and counting) and a deservedly elevated spot in the roots rock world, the word venerable springs to mind with Los Lobos. Versatility does, too—and, yes, variety—as exemplified by the brand new Tin Can Trust, the band's first set of original material in four years. The record sports a couple of prime slices of Latin Americana, an East LA soul song, blues numbers so greasy they leave stains, and a Grateful Dead cover that underscores the guys' abilities as interpreters and jammers, plus a cumbia and a Norteña. The wolf is surviving just fine, thank you. —Rick Cornell

Price: $20-30
