This was a neat little surprised that arrived in my inbox. Gringo Barrio is introduced in the press release with the following:
Gringo Barrio is proud to release their debut album of the same name at the iconic Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin, Texas on August 24th, 2013. With songs that capture the heart and essence of the life on the border, Gringo Barrio, tells the stories of a group of three non-hispanic friends growing up in a predominantly mexican culture. But forget traditional cumbias or corridos, Gringo Barrio, translates these stories to the sounds and folklore that Texans know and love.
Check out their music video about Laredo (Apparently WordPress changed since I last posted and I can’t load in a video but the following is the link):
Maybe they would want to play at the no-budget historic neighborhood street festival in November… hmm…. doesn’t hurt to ask!
