Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz. Keep it fresh with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $6, you get one general-admission ticket to Noches De Rock featuring Los Hollywood at The Cubby Bear on Thursday, January 26, at 9:30 p.m. (up to a $13 value, including all fees).
The Cubby Bear kicks off a new Thursday night showcase for local and national Latin rock artists during the inaugural Noches De Rock. Hailing from San Diego, Los Hollywood fuses Latin rhythms with elements of American pop rock. Concertgoers groove to the peppy vocals of Heidy Flores—who MTV Iggy says "sounds just like Gwen Stefani"—soaring over the riffs of Marcos Mondragon, the impassioned beats of Gustavo Mojica, and the curbside jingles of panhandling snowmen. This summer, the triplets of tunefulness plan to release new music and a pack of trained singing coyotes under the keen ears of producer Thom Russo, who has worked with stars including Michael Jackson and Johnny Cash. Formidable collective Malafacha gets the evening skanking with a brassy set, and DJ Resistol 5000 of Latino indie radio show Rock Sin Anestesia keeps the pace with beats from his eclectic, encyclopedic catalog.
