Cafe Tacuba plays home gig and heads for L.A.

June 19, 2009 |  8:11 am

Last weekend, Cafe Tacuba — the definitive Mexico City band — rocked its hometown in a sell-out gig to more than 55,000 people in the Foro Sol venue.

Rubén Albarrán Ortega, guitarist and vocalist, was a bundle of nervous energy, spinning and jumping around the stage, his long curly hair fanning out around him like a skirt.

And the crowd loved it.

Watch the video for an interview with some of the band members and footage of the concert, and stay tuned to La Plaza for more this Sunday on the Mexican rock oufit that is known around the world.

Cafe Tacuba hits Los Angeles on June 24, where they're scheduled to play the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal City.
