12/8 Tuesday show pick: La Guerrilla

Don't let the label "world music" scare you or turn you off. The world is big and interesting, and so is the diverse array of sounds that gets thrown into that generic genre label. Take La Guerrilla, for instance. This fusion big band blends a mix of punk, ska, Latin, reggae, and funk music to get its unique and highly energetic sound. Horns, violin, and lots of percussion add layers to the usual rock flavor of guitar/bass/drums.

La Guerrilla plays tonight at 8p at KUT's world music night at Momo's, presented by Bemba Entertainment. Cover is $5, and $3 with a student ID. Click here for the Do512 listing.
