Mariachi music is always fun. Well, almost always. Perhaps, not for a person with a pounding hangover, but otherwise, always fun, passionate, festive and often emotionally compelling. Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan are bringing true celebration to the Winspear Opera House, 2100 Ross Ave., 8 p.m. Tuesday and you don't want to miss it. At 113 years young, the seemingly undisputed "world's greatest mariachi group" has seen a lot of changes over the years as they've revolutionized and reinvented the Mariachi wheel time and again--always with the unbridled joy and pride of Mexico. It's often said, but this time it's true: This is the kind of show you have to experience to believe. Tickets are $19 to $65. Call 214-880-0202 or visit attpac.org for more information.
