Viale della Repubblica, 277 - Prato
In concert

An imaginary Tex-Mex that unfolds among the dusty deserts of Arizona, the Mexican festivals based on Tequila, the surreal atmospheres of Tarantino's films ...

Calexico, of course. The band Joey Burns and John Convertino arrives Friday, July 13 at the Amphitheater of the Cantci Pecci di Prato (21.30) at the Festival of the Hills 2018.

The tour follows the release of the new album "The Thread That Keeps Us", a family portrait that captures all their unpredictability and stylistic diversity, reserving the usual space for their creativity.

In giving life to the album, the Calexics found their spiritual dimension in an unusual environment, not in Arizona, but rather on the northern coast of California, in a house turned into a studio, called House Panoramic.

Built with debris and timber salvaged from a shipyard - dubbed by the band "the ghost ship" - the lavish house, with its avant-garde environment, did not take long to make its contribution to the sound of new tracks.

The critics welcomed the album as "The most captivating, gritty, if not surprising, Calexico we've ever listened to". The Calexico tell stories of immigration, the sufferings of displaced people, they give voice to those who do not have it. Strong their link with the world of cinema.

The Calexico are: Joey Burns, John Convertino, Martin Wenk, Jacob Valenzuela, Sergio Mendoza, Jairo Zavala Ruiz, and Scott Colberg.
