Epic cumbia/psychedelic rock dance party headed to the Texas Theatre

Hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires. The world is falling apart.

You might as well dance.

The Texas Theatre and the Wild Detectives are bringing the show you want to see if the world really is ending.

The theater already had booked Adanowsky, musician/director Adan Jodorowsky’s rock band, and asked The Wild Detective to suggest a local opener. They booked the theatrical glam-rock band Midnight Opera.

But then the Wild Detectives realized that show, on Sept. 16, was scheduled for the same night they had booked the legendary Bogotá-based cumbia accordionist Carmelo Torres and his band Los Toscos.

So they decided to put all three bands together on the Texas Theatre’s main stage for one epic night of eclectic sounds.

They’re calling it La Noche de la Santísima Trinidad, the Night of the Holy Trinity.

“We don’t really think that are many chances to see a show of this nature in town very often,” says Andres de la Casa Huertas of the Wild Detectives. “The three bands are very different from each other but that’s what it makes it so special.”

It all goes down at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16. Tickets cost $20 in advance or $24 day of show.
