Ozomatli, Kinky, Plastilina Mosh

Each of these three Latin dance bands is worth seeing on its own; that they've joined forces is no doubt evidence of our shitty economy, but whatever--it's your gain. L.A.'s Ozomatli adds lots of Middle Eastern flavor to their funky fusion on the new Street Signs, making sure to piss off the people not pissed off by their arrest for public merrymaking at South by Southwest in March. Kinky invited Cake's John McCrea to contribute to last year's Atlas and didn't end up sounding like Cake. Plastilina Mosh has a great name and is fond of mechanized beats.
