AS Presents HSU Downtown with Tropa Magica & Special Guests Los Dune Bums. Pacheco Brothers, David and Rene, began their prolific music careers as Thee Commons; underdogs in the East L.A. music scene. Inspired by the Roots of Chicha compilations and the psych rock sounds coming out of Southern California they embraced both worlds with open arms. High-spirited and determined they worked on a formula that would become their signature “Psychedelic Cumbia Punk” sound. A sound, not Latino enough for the Mexicans nor surf enough for the psych-punks. LA Weekly made it clear: "If Thee Commons aren’t the best live band in Los Angeles, they’re damn near the top.” After 3 records and relentless touring the brothers Pacheco decided to work on a different live and studio sound. Yet, rather than start from scratch the brothers expanded on their “sound and reshaped it with a cinematic, orchestrated and carnivalesque twist.
