snagged a great musical act for this Friday's opening of its new Wallworks
exhibit: Mexican Institute of Sound
. The band is the brainchild of DJ /producer/president of EMI Mexico Camilo Lara, who uses the moniker as an excuse to mix together traditional Latin music with modern electronica. On his records you hear bits of everything from cumbia to cha cha cha, spiked by left field sound effects. Lara says Latin music comes out of him naturually--or, as he told SF Weekly
back in April
, "If you eat tacos, you poo tacos."
So there you have it. Hear Lara poo tacos all over the museum Friday when MIS headlines the opening Wallworks party alongside Chris Brown of Rogue Wave and DJ Lengua. Members slide in free, otherwise it's $12-$15 to get in. Party starts at 8 p.m.
