Los Po-Boy-Citos 

8:30 p.m. Tue., Dec. 9

Mid City Lanes Rock n'Bowl, 4133 S. Carrollton Ave., 482-3133; www.rockandbowl.com

New Orleans' premier (well, only) Latin soul band, Los Po-Boy-Citos, combines gumbo and menudo, Willie Tee and Willie Bobo, Spanish Harlem and Spanish moss. Seeking to scoop the rhythmic Cuban influence from the melting pot of New Orleans music and place it at the forefront of its sound, the group plays raucous, horn-heavy Latin boogaloo straight from Uptown, combining obscure vintage Latin soul covers with spiced-up versions of New Orleans R&B and funk classics. Recently, the group has played some gigs with veteran Latin roots-rocker and former Iguana Derek Houston on sax. The debut album, New Orleans Latin Soul, creates a seamless live mashup of Tito Puente and Ernie K-Doe. Tickets $5. — Fensterstock
