Give praise to the Latin-alternative music gods because July is blazing with rock-solid global acts. Last Friday, July 10, kicked off with the fierce Jessica Hernandez (read my SoundDiego article on her), a Mexican-Cuban American armed with a guitar and the soulfulness of Amy Winehouse. If you missed her and her band, be sure to see make it when they come back to town.
And be still our hearts, La Ley make a “re-tour” to House of Blues at the end of the month. La Ley frontman Beto Cuevas is music’s Pierce Brosnan. At 47 years old and as a proud dad, he’s cutting-edge hot.
