On this week’s Sunday Night Concert, we’ll be featuring a very special performance from Los Lobos. Nowadays, the band is tried and true having established themselves for their electric performances and diverse songbook. In 1984, the band was coming off the release of their major label debut record How Will the Wolf Survive. Unbeknownst to many, the record would go on to become a classic that helped spike the fanfare Los Lobos received.
On December 14, 1984, Los Lobos made their first appearance in Chicago playing at Biddy Mulligan’s in Rogers Park. Coincidentally, the band will be returning to Chicago this December for a string of XRT shows at City Winery for an (unofficial) 30th anniversary celebration just mere days after they first played Chicago in 1984.
Tune into XRT at 8PM this Sunday night to hear Los Lobos’ first ever appearance in Chicago on XRT’s Sunday Night Concert.
