I try and go see friends and excellent Denver band iZCALLi whenever I can, especially for their traditional La Posada concert – held this year at the Gothic Theatre on South Broadway. The band formed in 2005, and around that time they played a fundraiser to support our kids’ elementary school. To date, I would guess they are among bands I have see I have seen the most times live ever – and they keep getting better all the time.
The band is Miguel Aviña, his sister Brenda, and Luiggy Ramirez – with Denver rockstars Josh Lee and Wes Watkins playing along. As you might guess, iZCALLi is an eclectic mix of styles, but I always say they boil down a great rock outfit. The Aviñas’ roots in Mexico are ever present, but essentially it’s just an inclusive, loud, and raucous show.
