Miami's favorite Latin - rock - cumbia - whatever mash-up band, Locos Por Juana,
has finally got its due from the awards gods. The Locos have finally
scored their first Grammy nomination, in the category of Best Latin
Rock or Alternative Album, for La Verdad. Note that this is in
the regular Grammys, not the Latin Grammys -- the overall recording
academy began to recognize several Latin music categories some years
To celebrate, on Friday, December 19 the band will play a special show
at Jazid, where it's held a Wednesday-night residency for the last five
years. The show starts at 11 p.m., and Itagui Correa, the band's
frontman, will autograph copies of the album's title single.
Jazid, 1342 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-673-9372; www.jazid.net.
