Latin Music Concerts for December 2007

Dates & Cities

By

Here's a list of concerts to help make your December bright with holiday cheer. There are a number of Christmas concerts that I've included; the bad news is that there are only a few New Year's Eve events. I guess most of your favorite artists will be bringing in the New Year at home, with their own families.

1. Cafe Tacuba

Mexican rock band extraordinaire Cafe Tacuba finishes their tour this month.

2. Alejandro Sanz

Spain's Alejandro Sanz has a few more dates of his [i]El Tren De Los Momentos[/i] tour in December, with two dates in Florida, one in Texas.

3. Enrique Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias has not done much touring, even with the release of [i]Insomniac[/i] this year. But he's going to be in Los Angeles, helping to christen the first few months of the brand new Nokia Theatre, which opened in October.

    Dec. 7: Los Angeles, CA - Nokia Theatre

4. Joan Sebastian

Here's another opportunity to see and hear the 'People's Poet' Joan Sebastian. If your feeling lucky, maybe you can make those bells rings with a little gambling after the concert.

    Dec. 13: Highland, CA - San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino

5. El Tri

El Tri is another of Mexico's classic rock bands. They haven't had a new album since 2005, but I noticed that they've started doing a little concert touring this year - maybe we're due for a new album?

    Dec. 15: New York, NY - Nokia Theatre Times Square

6. Ozomatli

L.A.'s ecelctic Ozomatli has three dates this month. This is a band well worth hearing live if the geographic opportunity presents itself.

    Dec. 1-2: San Francisco, CA - Fillmore
    Dec. 8: Denver, CO - Ogden Theatre (with Lifesavas)
    Dec. 20-21: Hollywood, CA - House of BLues Sunset Strip

7. Poncho Sanchez

I've noticed that Latin jazz great Poncho Sanchez often appears in the Pacific Northwest; here he is playing several dates at Seattle's Jazz Alley.

    Dec. 28-30: Seattle, WA - Jazz Alley

8. Del Castillo

Austin's Del Castillo is one of my personal favorites. I'm not the only one that loves this flamenco-influenced group; their album Brotherhood won "Album of the Year" at the 2007 SXSW Austin Music Awards.

    Dec. 4: Hollywood, CA - Knitting Factory
    Dec. 7-8: Las Vegas, NV - Canyon Club At Four Queens
    Dec. 28: Houston, TX - Warehouse Live

9. Hector El Father, Alexis y Fido (Latino 96.3 Santa Bash)

Reggaeton fans in Southern California will have a chance to hear Hector El Father and Alexis Y Fid (among others) at the [i]Latino 96.3 Santa Bash[/i].

    Dec. 6: - Hollywood, CA - The Music Box at the Fonda

10. Christmas Concerts

Here's a line-up of Latin music Christmas specials this month.

11. New Years Eve

I couldn't find very many ways to spend New Year's Eve with Latin music, but here are the one's that are available. Tickets are not yet available for all of these events, so you might have to check back.
