You Should've Gotten Tickets to Cuco's Sold-Out Show at Paper Tiger


  • Jerry Rangel
Matching vaporwave with the synth-chord progressions you might find scoring your tia’s favorite novela, LA’s Cuco has been making a buzz as of late, and at only 19-years-old, that buzz will most likely continue for the young Chicano heartthrob.

Sort of sounding like slowed down (and stripped down) tracks from Neon Indian’s Psychic Chasms, and with lyrics like “Cuando veo esos ojos / ahí es donde quiero vivir / Si me besan esos labios / ahí si quiero morir” (lol, calm down mijo), Omar Banos, better known as Cuco, has a catalog of tracks that are raw, soulful and bleeding edge contemporary.

$17-$60 (sold-out), Fri March 2, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
