Mexico Blues

Los Lobos moves from East L.A. to Chicago and the Mississippi Delta on Colossal Head

Los Lobos played for quite a different crowd this summer on the Furthur tour. Putting "Just Another Band From East Los Angeles" on a post-Jerry Deadhead tour bill isn't as strange as it may sound--the band has been a favorite of neohippies for years, and its signature cover song is a doodling version of the Dead classic "Bertha."

Berlin says the band was enlightened by its Furthur festival experience to start switching up its sets more than usual. "People were following the tour around, so it became especially important to vary our show, to get a fresh take every night," he says. "Playing 35-minute sets all summer also geared us up to do our tour, where we can play two hours if we feel like it and cover a lot of ground."

Los Lobos is scheduled to perform on Friday, November 15, at Electric Ballroom in Tempe, with Wild Colonials. Showtime is 9 p.m. (all ages).
