En­ter the wolves: Los Lo­bos

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The in­de­fati­ga­ble and eclec­tic East Los An­ge­les rock­ers Los Lo­bos play at Buf­falo Thun­der Re­sort and Casino (20 Buf­falo Thun­der Trail) as head­lin­ers for the 7th an­nual San­gre de Cristo Fu­neral Fund Con­cert, which raises money for area fam­i­lies to help with burial ex­penses. The found­ing mem­bers of Los Lo­bos met in high school in the early 1970s, and in the early days were known as Los Lo­bos del Este (The Wolves of the East). Their songs be­gan ap­pear­ing in movies in the mid1980s, and they broke through to na­tional fame when they ap­peared in the 1987 Ritchie Valens biopic, La Bamba. Among their most beloved al­bums are How Will the Wolf Sur­vive? (1984), By the Light of the Moon (1987), and Kiko (1992). They re­lease their 21st al­bum, Gates of Gold ,in Septem­ber. The con­cert, at 7 p.m. on Fri­day, Aug. 14, also fea­tures Melinda Sanchez in a “Se­lena Re­view,” as well as Santa Fe’s pop­u­lar allfe­male mari­achi band, Mari­achi Bue­naven­tura, and Mari­achi Sonido Nuevo from Al­bu­querque. Tick­ets, which are $35, can be pur­chased at www.buf­falothun­der­re­sort.com. — J.L.
