From the ashes of the 1992 L.A. riots arose a collective of musicians committed to continuing the legacy of Chicano Rock—and to creating music that tells the social, cultural, political, and musical stories of struggling people around the world. These days, standing on the shoulders of giants ranging from Ritchie Valens to Los Lobos, Quetzal has earned the title of “one of Los Angeles’ most important bands” (LA Times), and a Grammy for its 2011 album Imaginaries. With a unique combination of community activism and electrifying original music, Quetzal forges a sound as rich and complex as its multi-ethnic barrio experience, moving your feet to dance and your heart to seek change. 

Presented by: Town Hall as part of its Global Rhythms series, curated by Brian Faker. Series supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and Wyncote Foundation NW. Series media sponsorship provided by KBCS 91.3 FM.
Tickets: Single-event tickets for Quetzal go on sale Sept. 9: $20 advance/$25 at the door/$20 seniors/$17 Town Hall members/$10 students. A limited number of $5 day-of-show Teen Tix for those 18 and under also will be available.
