Sounds Like San Diego: June 10

Rock en español group Mana take over Valley View Casino on Wednesday

When I was in high school, there was this guy who was slightly annoying in his obsession with Mana. It was all he talked about, and we had to work in close quarters in AV, and it drove me nuts. Spanish wasn't spoken in my house, but I'd taken enough in school that I could understand the music, but it wasn't my thing. By college, however, I was at a school with predominantly foreign students and found that I was listening almost exclusively to rock en español, and suddenly all those years of that guy (who is now a famous DJ in Vegas) made sense. I had the opportunity to see the band live only once, but I can tell you, it was life changing for me. Between Grammys, Latin Grammys, Billboard, MTV and numerous other awards over their nearly 30-year career, you can expect Valley View Casino Center to go off with Mana in a way that it hasn't in an eternity.
