Joey Burns – Calexico
With full band, all their great hits and many surprises, Calexico are about to live every artist’s dream as they are getting ready for a melodic night at the historical venue of Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Having been active for the past 20 years, Calexico, named after a town in the Mexican-Californian borders and originated from Tucson, Arizona, have fans all over the world. An entirely new sub-genre, ‘desert noir,’ was coined to describe Calexico and their idiosyncratic style, a blend of traditional Latin music influences (mariachi, conjunto, cumbia, tejano), country, jazz and post-rock. The popular band will perform at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus for the very first time, presenting some of their biggest hits (“Stray,” “Falling from the sky,” “Crystal Frontier,” “Missing,” “Splitter”), along with songs from their newest album, The Threat that Keeps us, released in late January, and so far has been embraced by critics, affirming that “Calexico cannot be taken for granted”.A summer night under the Acropolis, truly special.
