espite having a 17-year long music career and selling thousands of records, Mexican band Panteón Rococó still struggles to define its own style.
"That is the most difficult questions in the world. Honestly we've never been able to define it. In one occasion, Roco from Maldita Vecindad told us that what we were doing -- them and us -- was mestizo rock and I believe that is a good definition," said the band's trombone player Paco Bajaras, during a phone interview last week.
Their music is a fusion of rhythms from boleros, merengue, ska, rock, punk, cumbias and reggae.
And on July 5, the band's fans in the Central Valley will be able to enjoy those sounds when the band plays at The Loft Events.
But Barajas has a suggestion: "Take tennis shoes because you will dance a lot and be ready to have a lot of fun. And take an extra shirt to change out from that sweaty one."
The Fresno show kicks off the band's 2012 U.S.A. tour where they will be performing songs from their new album, 'Ni Carne, Ni Pescado' (No Meat, No Fish), which will be released sometime in August.
