Screencap from David Hidalgo and Marc Ribot's performance at the L2, January 10, 2013

David Hidalgo, the voice and guitar behind Los Lobos, and Marc Ribot put it together in a performance at the L2 Arts & Culture Center.

Their project, Border Music, covers all of the sounds of the coasts, cultures, styles and more. There was even a cover of Merle Haggard's "The Running Kind" just to be sure they cover the gamut.

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
