Summer vacation officially started for a majority of people within the community. A local event is set up to provide enjoyment to the public for the 14th year in a row.
Casa de la Cultura is kicking off its 14th year of their summer concert series, Noches Musicales, at 7 p.m. this Friday. As special guest, they will have LA 45, a band from San Antonio and debuted in the Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair in San Antonio in 2017.
“Preserving the dying art of Chicano music with every performance, LA 45 carries on the tradition of Mexican American music pioneered by legends like Little Joe & La Familia, The Latin Breed, and countless others,” according to LA 45’s bio page.
“Supergroup” is the only way to describe this band. Although all the band members are under the age of 30, they have each already spent years in the Tejano music industry and earned the respect of their peers.
The concert will feature a variety of performances and artists. The venue will open up with San Antonio artist Emmanuel Rangel at 7 p.m., as part of the First Friday Art Walk, and will feature his art work inside the Casa de la Cultura.
Rangel be followed by the Ballet Folklorico Corazón de Mexico at 8 p.m.
Opening up for the special guest is La Gente Vinyl Club at 8:30 p.m. Members of the vinyl club will spin a variety of records for those in attendance.
LA 45 takes the stage at 9 p.m. and will finish their set at 11 p.m. The vinyl club will also close out the night after the band’s performance and ended the concert at midnight.
The concert is a free event to the public. People are encouraged to bring chairs to sit on at the Brown Plaza.
