This sounds like a good time at Betty’s Rock Bar in Walnut Creek – the Circo Rocktastico Tour pulls in, featuring Southern California indie rock bands with a Latin flavor. Astra Heights happens to be managed by former San Ramon resident and Nag Nag Nag guitarist Phil Jauriqui - which means that some of us from that crowd will be there, trying to look cool … when we’re not calling home to talk to babysitters.
Here’s the press release on the tour:
Los Angeles, CA- Monte Negro has joined forces with two other California-based alternative rock bands (Astra Heights, The May Fire) and MTV Tr3s to bring their diverse takes on the burgeoning Latin alternative scene to the West and Midwest for six weeks in August and September. Circo Rocktastico is the tour designed to show the natural unity of the American and Latino Indie cultures and how both influence and flow together so well, especially in a globalized world.
On the * select dates, The Rock the Vote Bus will be joining the Tour to help reinforce the need for Young Latino Music Fans to vote in November. The Bus will be a fun interactive experience open to the public before & after shows with Voter Registration Bays, Guitar Hero Games, Photo Booth , PSA Recording Booth and Free Mobile Music Downloads.
