Kinky to bring blend of dance rhythm to Stubb’s
Drawing influences from electronic dance, funk and rock, Latin alternative band Kinky has been making audiences move for more than a decade. The quintet, originally from Monterrey, Mexico, will bring their infectious dance rhythms to Stubb’s on Dec. 17, where an energetic live show likely awaits.
Kinky played Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2010, and has since released a new Latin Grammy nominated album, “Sueño De 8 p.m. today Stubb’s inside, 801 Red River St. $17 to $20
com La Máquina.” With strong storytelling behind the music, the band takes listeners on a cinematic musical journey through an adventurous string of late-night parties that eventually leads to an end-of-the-world celebration. The bilingual band at times weaves Spanish and English lyrics together, helping to draw in increasingly diverse audiences.
Several music powerhouses are behind their latest album, including Dust Brother John King who has produced Beck, The Rolling Stones and The Beastie Boys. Their song “Negro Día” features Spanish hip-hop artist Mala Rodríguez.
Aside from ACL, Kinky has played festivals such as Coachella and New York City’s Central Park SummerStage during the Latin Alternative Music Conference.
