Who can resist the warm and welcoming sound of Calexico? Take a record of theirs, add cold drinks and good friends, and youâ€™ve got yourself the essentials in a great gathering. The Tucson, AZ based group will release Carried To Dust on September 9th via Touch & Go Records. â€œThe band lineup that solidified around â€œFeast of Wireâ€ is back again, along with a number of guests, including Sam Beam, Douglas McCombs, and Pieta Brown.â€ Yeah, weâ€™re excited.
Chicago fans/readers can catch Calexico for free on Thursday, September 25th as part of the Chicago World Music Festival. If that wasnâ€™t special enough, the band will be joined by Mariachi Luz de Luna and Salvador Duran, the latter whose pipes youâ€™ll remember for his contributions to the Iron & Wine/Calexico collaboration of In the Reins.
