Beall Concert Hall
961 East 18th Avenue
Join us as we celebrate with East LA Chicano Alternative Rock Band Quetzal and Martha Gonzales for several events over two days!
The first event is a large concert in Beall Hall for everyone!
From the ashes of the 1992 Los Angeles rebellion/riots arose a collective of East Side musicians committed to respectfully continuing the legacy of over 70 years of Chicano Rock. The Grammy-winning ensemble Quetzal has created a path that has earned them the title of “one of Los Angeles’ most important bands” (The Los Angeles Times).
Quetzal forges a sound that will simultaneously make you dance and contemplate change, a sound as rich and complex as their pluri-ethnic barrio experience. The group’s unique combination of community activism and creative compositions has allowed them to travel the world using music as a tool for creating a global network of musicians committed to building community.
Quetzal’s fifth album, “Imaginaries,” released by Smithsonian Folkways, received the Grammy Award in 2013 for Best Latin Rock, Urban, or Alternative Album.
$12 general admission, $8 students and seniors. Tickets are available at the door or in advance from the UO Ticket Office, 541-346-4363. Weblink: https://goo.gl/WGw2RL
