Los Straitjackets
  • Los Straitjackets

Cat's Cradle—In the liner notes for Los Straitjackets' Rock en Espanol Vol. 1, Los Lobos' Louie Perez writes of the thrill of "hearing bands on Mexican radio appropriate American popsongs and give the lyric a twist in the mother tongue." On the record, Los Straitjackets—one of the crackest outfits around, as talented as they are masked—re-create those exhilarating times with vocal support from Thee Midnighters' Little Willie G., Perez' hermano Cesar Rosas and Big Sandy: "Wild Thing" gets even wilder. For $14, you can witness the Straitjackets, with Big Sandy in tow, transform Cat's Cradle into mid-'60s East L.A. Openers the Iguanas hit the stage at 8:30 p.m. —Rick Cornell
