I am such a fan of Rock en Español. I went to a college where 70 percent of the students were from other countries. All areas were covered, but it just happened that most of my friends were Mexican, Chilean, Argentinian, Brazilian, Salvadorian, Costa Rican, and from other South American and Central American countries. They taught me how to appreciate the rock music from those countries. This was before Shakira started singing in English and when pretty much every band from Mexico City could own Latin America. One of those bands include, Café Tacvba, and since then the band has grown as well as their popularity in the States. With the border's proximity, expect this show to be a beautiful blend of San Diegans and people crossing the border for this show. The band crosses genres and are definitely worthy of the love they receive. If you've never seen them, grab a ticket or pull up a kayak or canoe to next to Humphreys and let Rock en Español take you away.
