Tuesday's local music pick: Este Vato, La Guerrilla at Momo's

Cinco de Mayo in on Wednesday, but Momo's has a "Cuatro de Mayo" pre-party, brought to you by KUT and Bemba Entertainment. The night opens at 8p with Latin folk singer/songwriter Mauricio Callejas. Then at 10, the world-fusion collective La Guerrilla takes the stage. This group has been getting lots of local press lately, for good reason. Few bands bring the playful sense of experimentation and showmanship that these guys and gals bring every night. The night closes with the Latin rock/hip-hop band Este Vato. They've been around for just over a year, but these guys are a solid live band with a distinct sound that borrows from diverse sources north and south of the border. Cover is $5 ($3 if you have a student ID).
