El Chicano, a Latin rock band from East L.A. that made a splash in the 1970s, will make a stop at The Edge in Coeur d’Alene tonight and Saturday.
Taking inspiration from Ritchie Valens’ proof that Hispanic musicians could make it to rock stardom, El Chicano formed in the 1960s first under the name V.I.P.
They went on to hit the Top 40 charts with their songs “Viva Tirado” and “Tell Her She’s Lovely.” They have performed with Rod Stewart, Santana and ZZ Top, among others.
Show starts at 9 p.m. Cover is $3. The Edge is located at 4720 W. Seltice between Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls.
