MARIACHI FLOR DE TOLOACHE: LAS CARAS LINDAS ALBUM RELEASE
WITH OPENER EDNA VAZQUEZ
Friday, June 16 at 9:30PM / Saturday, June 17 at 11:30PM - $25
All-women mariachi group and Latin Grammy nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache is lead by singers Mireya I. Ramos (founder) and Shae Fiol (original member). Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi, the group started as a trio of harp, violin and vihuela; today, Mariachi Flor De Toloache performs as a full mariachi ensemble. The members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the United States. This diversity defines its unique flavor and sound. The result of this cultural bouquet is an edgy, versatile and fresh take on traditional Mexican music. Opening both shows will be Edna Vazquez, a Latin American artist based in the Northwest who performs original music that pays homage to her many influences from across the Americas. Edna has traveled far and wide to share their message of light, love and cultural healing.

Singer/composer Dorian Wood returns to Joe's Pub to perform songs from his emotionally-charged new album, XALÁ. "Armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon" (WNYC), Dorian is a wunderkind with a headstrong DIY discipline. He has brought his emotionally-charged performances to concert halls, museums, music venues and performance spaces throughout the US, Mexico and Europe, with a voice that channels the skill and ferocity of such auteurs as Scott Walker, Nina Simone and Tom Waits.

THAT'S NOT TANGO: ASTOR PIAZZOLLA, A LIFE IN MUSIC
Saturday, August 5 at 7PM / Sunday, August 6 at 7PM - $30
You've heard his music -- now meet the man. On the 25th anniversary of his death, That's Not Tango explores Astor Piazzolla's complicated personal relationships and far-reaching musical legacy. In words and live music, Piazzolla's imaginary and restless spirit takes us from his birthplace in Argentina through a childhood as a would-be hoodlum on the mean streets of New York's Lower East Side. We travel with him as a young man back to Argentina where he becomes a professional bandoneon player, band leader, and ultimately, composer, studying with the legendary teacher, Nadia Boulanger. This is the story of a kid who detested the scratchy tango records his father insisted on playing every night, to someone who grew up to become the savior of tango and, along the way, a towering figure in 20th century music. Conceived and written by Lesley Karsten (with co-writer Stephen Wadsworth), the show features Karsten as Piazzolla with pianist Brandt Fredriksen, bandoneon player J.P. Jofre, and violinist Nick Danielson.
Thursday, August 10 at 9:30PM - $15
