SXSW Saturday Dispatch: Cafe Tacvba at Auditorium Shores





I can't say that I ever really heard Cafe Tacvba before, but after seeing them last week, I've become an instant convert. Their music is infectious and sounds like pure fun. Audience members sang along to every word with the biggest smiles on their faces.

Singer Rubén Albarrán seemed like he was having the time of his life and just letting his spirit fly free on the stage. Like a Latin Jim Morrison. The man never stops moving, singing, playing guitar, jumping in the air. His energy infects you and next thing you know you're dancing and having the time of your life.  I saw them twice last week and I can't wait to see them again.
