Molotov headlined major U.S. music tour.
A large crowd — a mixture of generations — came together last Wednesday night to enjoy a night of rock, music courtesy of internationally revered rock band Molotov.
The Latin Grammy and MTV VMA award winning English and Spanish alternative rock, metal, rap and hip hop Molotov — whose band members (currently Randy Ebright, Miguel Ángel Huidobro Preciado, Paco Ayala and Tito Fuentes) first came together in 1995 — headlined the 2013 Jägermeister Music Tour that came to Red and Jerry’s last week.
Prior to their performance, concertgoers enjoyed the music of local bands Izcalli (read La Voz’ interview with band members at www.lavozcolorado.com/detail.php?id=6672), and Peña Dura.
Images depicting American nostalgia flooded the screens when the crowd erupted in cheer as Molotov hit the stage. For those who’ve never been to a Molotov show, or at least YouTubed a performance, you where in for a treat as fans dissipated into a large mosh pit during the band’s entire set. They played tunes including: “Santo Niño de Atocha,” “Gimme tha Power” and “Frijolero,” but it was their last song “Po” that really got the crowd going — a song that was long awaited all night.
Molotov’s presentation was not a show to witness, but rather a concert that necessitated participation. Those who attended did just that because a lyric did not go unsung, a beat did not go un-danced and the connection between performer and audience did not go unfelt.
