Hip Hop Hoodíos, Makor, NYC, Jan 3

Hip Hop Hoodíos
Jan. 3 - New York, NY
(tix are $12)
35 W. 67th Street

The upcoming New Year’s Eve and Jan. 3rd concerts from Latino-Jewish urban music collective Hip Hop Hoodíos promise lots of booty-shaking and laughs alike. Comprised of bilingual musicians from Jewish/Latino backgrounds ("hoodÌo is a twist on the word "judio" - Spanish for "Jew"), the members of Hip Hop HoodÌos are linked by a common love for Latin alternative music, or rock and rap "en Espanol". But don't call these guys the Jewish answer to Tenacious D or the Latino respuesta to the Beastie Boys: Hip Hop Hoodíos are out to change the notions and preconceptions of Latin music entirely. Following the group’s recent standing room-only concerts at Joe’s Pub and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (as well as packed dates in Chicago and LA), Los Hoodios perform at Makor in NYC on Saturday, Jan. 3rd, and also have a special New Year’s Eve date at First Night Montclair in New Jersey.
