Wednesday Night: The Lumineers & Y La Bamba at the Casbah

Tonight's show at the Belly Up with Cults is sold out, so instead, you should consider heading to the Casbah for The Lumineers. The band is getting some serious web buzz, and last year I went to their show at Hotel Cafe when The Heavy Guilt opened, and I can personally testify that they're amazing if you dig the folky revival stuff that I love and write about so much of the time. 

You can check out The Lumineers (@thelumineers) self-titled, debut LP via this link, prior to its April 3 release date.

Performing with The Lumineers is Y La Bamba. 

“The music Luz Elena Mendoza makes with her bandmates in the Portland, Ore., group Y La Bamba is a perfect example of how to embrace tradition while still creating something new, exciting and thought-provoking…While its music may not sound exactly like the Mexican music of Mendoza's youth, Y La Bamba creates songs that stop me in my tracks with their breathtaking range.” - NPR

NPR's Tiny Desk Concert includes a performance of "Houghson Boys"
