Pearl Brewery's Échale! Latino Music Estyles; Spring Series Closing - Friday, May 9



 "Playing for the first time in the United States, DMK, a Depeche Mode cover band and YouTube sensation from Bogota, Colombia, will kick-off the last Échale series. The band, consisting of a father and his two adorable children, has become a viral sensation with nearly four million YouTube views and are known for their signature covers of the revered electronic English band. 

Chicha Libre is a Brooklyn-based band that creates mix-up covers of forgotten Chicha classic songs with French-tinged originals and reinterpretations of 70s pop classics. Based in Xonacatlan, Mexico, headliners Sonido San Francisco combine the subtleness of cumbia and Colombian fold, and the power behind Mexican cumbia and urban electronic music.

The Pearl Park amphitheater seats roughly 1,000 and Pearl invites latecomers to bring law chairs and blankets if seating is scarce. Pearl is located 300 Pearl Parkway in San Antonio, Texas. Parking will be available onsite and at the Kohler garage.

If you missed the last Échale Latino Music Estyles on April 4 with Brownout Presents: Brown Sabbath and Bombasta, Red Bull Panamérika has released Bombasta’s live recordings from Échale.
