Chicano Batman Adds Latin Flavor to Classic Oldies Sound

Psychedelic soul and funk band Chicano Batman have been rocking the Dark Knight moniker since long before Ben Affleck received the nod to be the next Hollywood man to don the legendary cape and cowl.

But the Los Angeles-based quartet comprised of singer, guitarist and organist Bardo Martinez, bassist Eduardo Arenas, drummer Gabriel Villa and guitarist Carlos Arévalo have been chasing a different kind of justice and freedom since the group's inception in 2009.

That quest made its way to FilmBar last night, when Chicano Batman hit Phoenix for their Outer City Limits tour.
