Covering this divine Valentine with a flurry of X’s and O’s… KUTX‘s #LoveAustinMusicMonth celebrations include an Austin Music Minute highlighting Bidi Bidi Banda’s Valentine Ball, stirring up all the sexy tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St.
Austin’s first all-star Selena tribute band, Bidi Bidi Banda, features vocalist Stephanie Bergara and an impressive group of musicians from some of Austin’s premiere Latin bands. All that work behind the scenes brings Selena’s music to life in one of the most impressive homages ever to grace a stage. And, with an extra dose of love, the band has put together a spectacular Valentine’s bash featuring synth-cumbia outfit Como Las Movies (featured on today’s AMM), and gorgeous glamour rocker Caleb de Casper.
This is your ultimate Valentine – as it would be presented to you by equal parts Danny Trejo, New Order and Tim Curry channeling the ultimate Dr. Frankenfurter with a side of Dietrich. Don’t hesitate. Doors open at 9 p.m. Very recommended, and sealed with a deep-red lipstick smooch.
