Singer Alessandra Rosaldo and songwriter Chacho Gaytán have come a long way since Sentidos Opuestos’ self-titled 1993 debut. Off that auspicious first album were “Historias de Amor” and “Escribeme en el Cielo,” two chart-climbing tunes that set the tone for their career: reluctantly romantic and irresistibly danceable. Their biggest hit to date took shape in “Amor de Papel,” an electronic ballad to the fragile yet persistent nature of love, especially when courting a paper doll covered in tape. Last year saw the release of Zona Preferente, the duet’s first new album in more than a decade, ushered in by “Dime,” a return to basics with a triumphant hook and intricately entwined synth melodies.

House of Blues Houston
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Houston keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage and proudly displays the traditional crazy quilt. As the only venue in the revered chain to be built vertically rather than free floating, House of Blues Houston stands as a pillar of entertainment in the Houston Pavilions complex. The hot spot’s Bronze Peacock Room commemorates Houston's rich history and the blues clubs where Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Mama Thornton held sway, and features an enormous hand-painted mural depicting other local legends such as Albert Collins and Johnny "Guitar" Watson.
