When: Fri., April 10, 9 p.m. 2009
Price: $25

Not unlike Stereolab, Aterciopeladosgives the guitar-heavy world of rock en espanol an ambient twist with light dustings of lounge and electronica flourishes. With last year's most excellent Rio serving as musical fuel for this tour, vocalist Andrea Echeverri and multi-instrumentalist Hector Buitrago toss quite a bit of socio-political spice into the duo's wide-ranging musical stew. Songs about the environment, nationalism, and immigration are wrapped up in samba rhythms ("Dia Paranormal"), jangly Afro-pop ("Gratis"), and ethereal funk with an Andean folkloric twist ("Madre"). Aterciopelados will bring its crunchy granola brand of music for the rhythmically inclined to the Independent (628 Divisadero St., San Francisco) on Friday, Apr. 10. $25, 9 p.m.
