Stateside at the Paramount – Carrie Rodriguez’s Laboratorio

Sunday, February 27, 2022 at 7 pm CST

“At its heart, Laboratorio is a musical exploration and celebration of Latinx culture and its contribution to the American experiment. For each unique live performance, Carrie and her all-star Laboratorio band collaborate with a different guest artist, ensuring that no two shows are ever the same. On January 23rd, the Stateside welcomes Laboratorio, a program of the nonprofit, Austin Artists Project, back to the stage with a very special review show after a long hiatus due to the pandemic. The performance will feature beloved guest musicians who have joined Laboratorio in years past: Grammy award winning Tejano vocalist, bandleader, and legend Ruben “El Gato Negro” Ramos, folk/pop singer-songstress Suzanna Choffel, and Colombian singer-songwriter, gaitero, and bandleader Jaime Ospina.”
