The band brings with them the unbridled spirit of their latest critically acclaimed (and ninth) studio album The Thread That Keeps Us and a sweet ride through border sound treasures from across their career.
Across nine studio albums, numerous collaborations, movie scores and soundtracks and thousands of shows, Joey Burns and John Convertino and their magnificent band Calexico have roamed the world with their unique and stirring “desert noir” sound. Calexico make panoramic frontier music that effortlessly crosses borders, cultures and genres and have seamlessly infused the instrumentation, sounds and structures of cumbia, fado, jazz, gypsy, surf, country, spaghetti western epics from the shadows of indie rock into a body of work that is unique and completely intoxicating both live and on record.
