El Tri, Celso Piña, Inspector, La Lupita Comerica Theater Friday, May 18, 2012
In the buildup to last night's Chido Fest featuring Celso Piña, Inspector and La Lupita, frontman Alex Lora of host band El Tri told us that the event would be a great chance to hear all sorts of variations of rock en español. The Mexican icon delivered on the promise assembling a blistering set that was part dance party, part mini-maelstrom.
But before I get into my review of the event, I feel like I need to give readers a primer. While I can't profess to be an expert on Mexican vernacular, I think it's important to address a few words and sounds that are generally heard at a rock en español concert.
