Mostly Bears to Play October 15 at Yucca Tap Room
Personally, I'm much more interested in what front man Brian Lopez has been doing on his own lately. In between touring Europe with Marianne Dissard, jamming with Sergio Mendoza Y la Orkestra, Calexico and X's John Doe, he issued a solo EP, El Rojo, which finds Lopez joined by Salvador Duran, Sergio Mendoza and others, exploring Latin-tinged folk and placing his operatic vocals in in a more terse, creeping setting.
Regardless of how you like your Lopez, Friday night should make a strong case for his strength as a performer and writer, shirtless or not.
