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!

Quetzal

Queztal_posterFrom 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
