LA's East-siders Chicano Batman consider themselves a band of superheroes—but not the fame-seeking comic book kind, rather they're a group of cosmic defenders for the working class. Their power is music, and into a rich combination of Latino culture and Afro roots, they mix cumbia, funk, rock, psych, a more than a dash of tropicalia. Catch one of the more unique bands of our area as they play their second night in a month-long residency at Fullerton's Continental Room—and also celebrate the release of sophomore album Cycles of Existential Rhyme. This week's show opens with support from special guests (and fellow eccentric Los Angelenos) Mothers of Gut and Slipping into Darkness.
