The Tex-Mex masters in Los Lobos are set to bring their latest album to the South Shore this weekend.
The group — which plays a mix of rock, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish music — released “Gates of Gold” in September. Los Lobos performs in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe South Shore Room Saturday night, May 14.
“Their first collection of new songs since 2010, the album was produced by the band who continue to hone their multi-faceted sound and fresh storytelling,” according to a press release for “Gates of Gold.” “The 11 tracks showcase a band that continues to keep it real. Their songs are snapshots of true-life moments with themes ranging from the immigrant experience in America to melancholic ruminations on impending mortality. The music is as dynamic and eclectic, yet distinctive as ever. Thoughtful, darkly romantic and spiritual lyrics are enhanced by slow burning blues rock, impressionistic soul, traditional Mexican folk music or straight ahead garage band jams.
“Los Lobos [musicians] are entering their fifth decade, as the humblest of musical icons, having racked up countless accolades for their uncompromising artistry. With four Grammys in hand and the respect and admiration of their musical peers, the band still hearkens back to their beginnings as ‘the soundtrack of the barrio’ and remains a cultural touchstone for a community. Their accomplishment is reflected in the effortlessly spontaneous approach to recording.”
Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is located at 15 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline. More information is available at http://www.ticketmaster.com.
