Los Lobos

As part of a '70s cultural exchange program with the former Soviet Union, the band selected as most representative of American music was the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. If that selection committee met today, Los Lobos would be the logical choice as American emissaries. For more than 25 years, the band has shown an incredible, bicultural grasp of the American experience, proven by the rock, folk, country, blues and traditional Spanish sounds that fill everything from their 1984 debut LP How Will the Wolf Survive to 2002's The Ride. Groups as creative and intelligent don't come along often, and seeing that this show is free, there's little excuse for not reveling in their significance.
