This Thursday: Pistolera

At the Rickshaw stop /// Thursday 8.13.08
Pistolera is a NYC-based band that defines the alt-folklorico genre. "Listening to Pistolera's self-released debut, Siempre Hay Salida, or watching lead singer and guitarist Sandra Lilia Velasquez stamp out a beat in her boots to bandmate Maria Elena's accordion melodies, you inevitably feeel as thou you've landed in the heart of Mexico. The blend of soulful ranchera, peppy cumbia, and Spanish lyrics evokes a feeling that's distinctly south of the border." -- Boston Globe
