(VIDEO) FRIDAY LOWDOWN: Tonight Only: Dancing in the Van Duzer Theatre

Kudos to Los Angeles-based Chicano band Las Cafeteras for being energetic enough to convince the powers that be at CenterArts to provide a dancing area in the Van Duzer Theatre for Friday night’s general admission show. No small feat. Sample their son jarocho above and/or peruse more of Friday’s many local delights in your Lowdown listings below.
