We've partnered with the Texas
We’ve partnered with the Texas Theatre to put together a mini-festival music show for September 16. It’ll be a quite diverse show; French-Chilean-Mexican singer-songwriter Adan Jodorowsky comes back to the Texas Theatre to perform along his full band his gentle mix of pop-folk and chançon. Local heroes Midnight Opera (former Siamese) will open with their other-wordly glam pop. And so everybody goes home as happy as a clam at high water, Colombian cumbia legend, Carmelo Torres y Los Toscos will end the night with a Psychedelic Cumbia Party.
DJ Mutarrancho spins in the saloon in between sets!

Adan Jodorowsky, born in Paris in 1979, is of Mexican, Chilean, French and Russian ancestry. He is the son of film maker Alejandro Jodorowsky. At the age of seven, Adan met James Brown (a friend of his brother) backstage at a concert, where Brown taught him how to dance like him. George Harrison, a friend of his parents, gave him his first guitar lessons.
As a teenager, Adan moved back to Paris. A man of many passions, he studied the Tango seriously for a year, before turning to film and music. His musical work is very popular both in France and Chile, where he still spends a lot of time. Music from his debut album Étoile Éternelle (2006) was featured on the soundtrack of Two Days in Paris. His first single ‘L’idole’ was also released in Spanish as El Ídolo.
As an actor, he won the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor in 1989 for his role as the Young Fenix in Santa Sangre, one of his father movies.
Carmelo Torres y los Toscos
Born and raised in the San Jacinto area, Colombia, home of traditional cumbia and vallenato, Carmelo Torres has been playing the accordion since his was very young and could afford to buy one. He learned to play vallenato first, by himself, and then studied with Cumbia legend Andres Landero (who is credited with popularizing Cumbia in Northern Mexico and Texas). When Landero died in 2000, Carmelo’s major concern’s been to carry on his teacher’s legacy, keeping the cumbia genre alive and teaching the youngest.
Los Toscos is originally an avant-garde, experimental jazz band from Bogotá, composed of Juan David Castaño (percussions), Santiago Botero (bass) and Kike Mendoza (guitar). They are a fixture of the fertile experimental scene of Bogotá and have played with numerous invited guests like Tony Malaby and Peter Brotzmann. The band is joined by two key figures of modern Colombian music: Pedro Ojeda on the drums, and Mario Galeano on the guacharaca (Ondatrópica, Los Pirañas, Romperayo, Frente Cumbiero…).
Carmelo Torres y los Toscos will come to the Texas Theatre right after their debut performance in North America at the Sonic Transmissions Festival in Austin. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them in Dallas, it’s an absolute privilege to have them with us.
Midnight Opera (former Siamese)
Midnight Opera is the glam rock band of four theatrically inclined friends from Dallas, TX. Mixing ominous art pop with opulent set design and deranged alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work. As Siamese, the band released their debut record ‘The Mesmerist’ last March to much success and local acclaim. They’ve spent 2017 touring the U.S., expanding their collaborations with the Dallas theater, visual arts and fashion communities, and teaching their guitarist how to put on makeup. You can listen to their album on spotify.
Born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, Ernesto Montiel is a visual artist and improviser. He has been djing since his teens. Ernesto moved to Dallas in 2015. He took the Mutarrancho name for dj gigs since the beginning of 2016 and soon after began playing with Miguel Espinel in the electroacoustic free improvisation duo Monte Espina. Ernesto performs in numerous improvisation ensembles in the DDFW area along with Sarah Ruth Alexander, Lily Taylor, Gregg Prickett, Karl Roehling, Andrew Jordan Miller and Rick Eye.
