Concerts

War, El Chicano, Tierra

When: Sat., May 8, 7 p.m. 2010

Pop revival concerts can sometimes hold an unforgiving mirror up to less flattering aspects of the aging process, but the East L.A. triple threat of War, El Chicano and Tierra should be at least a cut or two above the typical nostalgia-fest. Of course, the purveyors of "Low Rider," "Spill the Wine" and "The Cisco Kid" need no introduction. But the politically charged El Chicano (the first Chicano band to play Harlem's Apollo Theater), as well as its jazzier spin-off group Tierra, are no less worthy of attention. Along with the first incarnation of Santana, it was these three bands who finally brought Chicano rock back to the charts, after the decade-long drought that followed Ritchie Valens' passing. The show kicks off at 7 tonight in the Colorado State Fair Events Center (1001 Beulah Ave., Pueblo, ticketmaster.com), with tickets ranging from $25 to $55. — Bill Forman

Price: $25-$55
