Los Lobos Comes (Back) to Ithaca

Legendary Cali-Mexi rock band Los Lobos comes to the State Theater on Wed. 5 March in a show that is sure to raise the roof and blast away winter doldrums.

Los Lobos headlined at GrassRoots in 2004 and played perhaps the rockingest Festival set ever. Their encore featured "Cinnamon Girl," for crying out loud.

Tomorrow's show is notable for the stellar opening act, James Hunter. Hunter headlined a show at the State last year. He is a veteran British singer and guitarist (years with Van Morrison's band), who made a sensation with a soulful album called "People Gonna Talk" that brought comparisons to Sam Cooke. Hunter is playing at the intimate Turning Point club in Piermont, NY later this month, where he has already sold out two shows at $65 a ticket.

There are still good tickets available for this performance. Check the State Theater's website for information.
