Los Dias de la Crescent: Day 1, 5/17/13

Los Dias de la Crescent 2013 is defined by what's local -- the music, the beer, the food, the fans. This year's schedule looks like a tightened-up version of last year's format -- and it somehow finds a way to bring "Stairway to Heaven" into a celebration of Arizona music in the process.

Day 1 brought an explicitly Latin night of Arizona music, with Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta's frenetic mambo leading a parade of sounds and styles that included cumbia (Vox Urbana), salsa (Jaleo), flamenco (Flamenco por la Vida), mariachi (the all-female Mariachi Pasion), and the globetrotting beats of DJ Seduce.Photos by Jim Louvau
