Call them Los Disbanded no more! Lady P, Don Verde, Vira Lata, and Dulce will reunite as Los Abandoned for a special one-time only concert at the Echoplex. It will mark the first time the Los Angeles-based Latin Alternative band has taken the stage since their farewell performance at the Tar Fest in 2007.
The demise of the Los Abandoned capped years of hard work assembling a fan base that worshiped their spunky Spanglish songs. The band scored some notable successes in their up-and-coming career such as performances at the Vive Latino Festival as well as the Late Night with Conan O'Brien show. They were eventually signed to Neil Young's Vapor Records and released their debut full length album Mix Tape in 2006.
The announcement that Los Abandoned would return came last night as a parting gift to Mucho Wednesday loyalists. As reported earlier on Heard Mentality, the run of Latin Alternative promotional nights at downtown Los Angeles' La Cita Bar have come to a close and last night was the grand finale.
But what's a few months when it's been a few years since we've all heard “Van Nuys (Es Very Nice)” live onstage?
