Café Tacvba’s Big Anniversary Party
During the past two decades the act hailing from Ciudad Satélite, Mexico, has put out seven studio albums, including its most recent, 2012’s El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco.
Re topped the list Rolling Stone published in 2012 ranking the “10 Greatest Latin Rock Albums of All Time.”
Rolling Stone declares that every LP Café Tacvba put out after 1994’s Re is just as good “but Re was the one that redefined the rules of the game. It was OK to spoof Mexico’s norteño roots, provided the nod was as affectionate and inspired as their hit ‘La Ingrata.’ It was valid to embrace the foreign influence of rock & roll and punk, as long as it was blended with authentic Latin sounds.”
Café Tacvba is properly celebrating Re by playing the album in its entirety on the fall tour, along with additional selections from its catalog.
Presented by Jack Daniels, the outing is dubbed “20re-ct25.” Here’s the plan:
