Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

Calexico goes on tour! YAY!

OK, so their new album kinda sucks, but trust me, people, Calexico live is SO worth it. This completely unique band with their combination of atmospheric rock, western cowboy music and mariachi horns, is one of my all-time favorites.

I'm totally addicted to this band, having now seen them several times, and god help you if Mariachi De Luna Luz is there with them, because you will be screaming "Ole!" at the top of your lungs within 30 seconds of the music starting.

Prior to the tour they'll be playing SummerStage in NYC with The New Pornographers and then heading to Lollapalooza in Chicago. Performing with kickass lineups at the Touch & Go 25th Anniversary Celebration and Austin City Limits Festival, you should definitely catch Calexico at some point this fall.

As a side note, I'm in Milwaukee today, and have been stopped by like 10 people who read this blog regularly! It's insane! So, anyway, hi to everyone in Milwaukee! Go see Calexico at the Pabst, you'll enjoy it. You heard their music in the production of TRUE WEST a few years ago. Now you remember, right?
