So consider this week's Hot Ticket section "'80s L.A. Flashback" week, but we'd be remiss if we didn't give props to Los Lobos. Widely considered token multiculti novelties when they debuted out of late '70s East L.A., the group-founded by David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Louie Perez and Conrad Lozano-actually took their inspiration from more hardline political influences, namely the Brown Berets of the Chicano Power student movement of the time. That fact, along with their love of classic Americana and American rock 'n' roll, has served them best over the years. Their most recent release, Good Morning Aztlán, only solidifies their place among rock's pantheon. Check them out in "an evening with" format-meaning just one opening act and two long sets from the headliners, in a great venue, worthy of the breadth and depth of their unique catalog. Los Lobos appear with The Healers at the Belly Up Tavern on Nov. 28. Tickets are $33.
