The band plays often in Seattle, and this time performs Feb. 22-25 in a more intimate setting at the Triple Door.
Los Lobos once titled an album “Just Another Band From East L.A.,” but they’ve never been “just” anything. Since the band formed in the 1970s, they’ve won three Grammy Awards, had hit albums and have often been cited as one of the best live bands of the modern rock era.
And it’s not just “La Bamba”-era boomers who shout their praises. Even the millennial-oriented website AV Club recently called Los Lobos “the best rock band nobody is listening to.”
That headline has never been true for discerning music fans in Seattle, and in just the past couple of years the band has played a dozen area concerts. That tradition lives on with four concerts next week at the Triple Door, Wednesday through Saturday, Feb. 22-25.
