Life During Wartime on 08/22/12
ADELIT@S will be playing LIVE in Studio on tonights show.
is a Portland OR-based anarchopunk band driven by alternating female-male vocals in Spanish inspired by Latin American revolutionary music, especially the Nueva cancion movement of the 60s and 70s. The band formed in 2006 with a few acoustic guitars and covers of old punk songs from Argentina and Spain and soon settled into its lineup for the first 5 years with Santa singing, Nick on guitar and vocals, Bourgee Jezis playing drums, and Brenna on bass. In Spring 2011 Kerrie joined on bass. The name Adelitas comes from a popular Mexican folk song and refers to the women who organized and took up arms during the Mexican Revolution. In this spirit the lyrics have focused on struggles around the border, immigration, and popular social movements that threaten the status quo. Que viva el punk revolucionario!
We'll also play the live set recorded by HARDSKIN last Friday when they were in town. It rips!
