Los Lobos w/ Alejandro Escovedo @ The Capitol Theatre 3/6/2015
Los Lobos

In Port Chester on Friday, the Capitol Theatre was really the perfect venue for this band. After a superb opening set by Alejandro Escovedo (coming soon), Los Lobos took the stage to a very engaged crowd. There was none of the persistent yapping you hear at other shows. This was a seated and attentive crowd that Los Lobos acknowledged from the outset. The band took their time working their way into this show with an early run through some classics before they welcomed Alejandro out for a couple of numbers. It was an extended and well played version of “The Neighborhood” that kicked this show into another gear. David Hidalgo’s blues guitar riffs were showcased during an incendiary 14-minute “Just A Man” before the fan favorite “Kiko” brought the crowd to their feet for the remainder of the show. The band gave a nice acknowledgement to Jerry Garcia (the venue’s side bar is called “Garcia’s”) before the performance of the set-closing “Bertha”, a song Los Lobos covered all the way back in 1991 for the Deadicated compilation. – [NYC Taper]

Together for over 40 years, legendary LA band Los Lobos continue strong and remain a force live. Their current tour hit the NYC area for a show at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre last Friday (3/6) for a nearly two-hour show spanning their entire career, plus a cover of The Grateful Dead’s “Bertha.” (They’re playing a Jerry Garcia tribute in Maryland in May. They spoke a little about Jerry Garcia beforehand, too.) Pictures and setlist are in this post. You can stream a couple recordings from the show (via NYC Taper) below, and download the whole show over his way.

Opening the show was Alejandro Escovedo where he played a duo set with violinist Warren Hood. His set came from the many acts his career has taken (The Nuns, Rank and File, solo work and more). Alejandro also joined Los Lobos for a few songs during their set. Pictures from his set are below.

Los Lobos’ tour continues next week on the West Coast. They be back in the NYC area for Croton, NY’s Clearwater Festival in June. All dates, plus more pics, setlist and concert recordings from the Cap, below…
