Give praise to the Latin-alternative music gods, because concert options for Memorial Day week are hot. Kick it off on hump day with Baja's new it-girl, Carla Morrison, for an intimate show at the Griffin. Friday, head south of the border to see the feisty alt-indie, award-winning Torreblanca with Tijuana's Orlando & the Shantelle's as the opening act -- you'll surely see the finest indie music crowd in the house.
The hottest bill is definitely Juanes. The Colombian pop hearthrob is downsizing from sold-out arenas to smaller venues like Humphreys By the Bay to give fans the ultimate Loud and Unplugged experience. If Juanes sells out, go see Grammy-winning brother-sister guitar-pop duo Jesse y Joy perform at the House of Blues -- you won't be disappointed.
