I've seen them perform at both venues and they rock out, as they always do, in live shows that are high energy fiestas of música con ritmo sabroso bearing messages of peace and solidarity. If you've never been to an Ozomatli concert, this is your chance to find out why there are countless "Ozoheads" across the world that follow these guys loyally.
Their latest album released earlier in the year, Don't Mess With The Dragon, takes on topics such as the Iraq War (en español), the immigration marches of 2006 and Hurricane Katrina. In true Ozo-fashion, the disc is a mezcla of funk, rock, latin, and Old School beats. Their CDs are nonstop parties, but are only a taste of what you'll get at one of their live shows. I'll be at the Rialto on the 10th.
