Los Texmaniacs

Bajo sexto player Max Baca was born into the conjunto tradition, with his father, Max Sr., playing the music in their hometown of Albuquerque. Fairly early in his career, San Anto legend Flaco Jimenez invited Baca to come play in his band. Inspired by Flaco's Texas Tornados, Baca started his own tejano-crossover band, Los Texmaniacs. With his brother Josh on accordion, Baca y Los Texmaniacs can rep cantina conjunto or pop-funk covers of "Low Rider." This breadth of style makes for an inexhaustible live show and some impressive trophies, including a Grammy for Best Tejano album in 2010 for their effort Borders y Baile. With FEA, Lonely Horse. 7pm-10pm, free, Arneson River Theatre, 418 Villita St., (210) 207-8614
