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.
