until Roskilde Festival 2014 - 29 June to 6 July


Sunday 07.07.13 - 20:30 - Odeon

American country and Mexican mariachi have been the most important coordinates in Calexico’s across-the-border rock.

Since 1996, John Convertino and Joey Burns have played rustic serenades filled with the smell of gritty highways and scorched tex-mex grill spice for fans of both Bruce Springsteen and spaghetti western composer Ennio Morricone.

On Algiers from 2012 the two gringos have ventured to the West Coast of Mississippi in motley New Orleans. Here we find traces of Haiti, Cuba and Africa surging in. The new impressions emphasize the notion of Calexico as a charming crossroads suited for very diverse musical orientations.

Label: City Slang / Cosmos

Rustic country rock with New Orleans flavour
Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
