Los Lobos Plays Folsom

Entertainment > Bands & Musicians

Three time Grammy award winning band Los Lobos comes to Folsom September 22 for an evening of great music. Expect to hear not only their hits from the past, but new music from Gates of Gold, their first new album since 2010. Tickets are going fast!

“We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us
are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in
this way.” So says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos, when
describing the songs on the band’s new album, Gates of Gold. The stories on Gates of Gold are snapshots of experiences that Perez and his band mates have
had, based on where they are emotionally and how they respond to evolving life circumstances.

“We live out loud most of the time and share our life this way, but then there are more intrinsic
things that happen, and our songs are part of the way we react to them. We sit down and
basically tell people what has happened. We certainly didn’t start this project with aspirations to
create the musical equivalent to great American literary works.”

After celebrating their 40th anniversary with the cleverly titled 2013 live album Disconnected In
New York City, the hard working, constantly touring band – David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar
Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin – leaps headfirst into their fifth decade with an invitation
to join them as they open fresh and exciting new Gates of Gold, their first full length studio
album since 2010’s Tin Can Trust (a Grammy nominee for Best Americana Album) and second
with Savoy/429 Records.
