On Thursday, January 31, “Inmovil”, “Intoxicame”, and “Alma de Neón” were the first Kinky tunes to welcome the electro rock group’s fans to the Conga Room. Gilberto Cerezo, Ulises Lozano, Carlos Chairez, Omar Góngora, and Cesar Pliego, began the evening with tracks from the band’s latest album, “Sueño de la Maquina” (Nacional Records, 2012) before going into older hits like “Soun tha mi primer amor” and “Más” from their first release, “Kinky” (Nettwerk, 2002).

But one of the definite highlights of the evening was the cover of the Wall of Voodoo’s 80’s classic “Mexican Radio”, which the band adopted early into its career and is now a fan favorite. 
 
The second epic moment of the evening was the performance of “Negro Dia”, which also appears on “Sueño de la Maquina” featuring Spanish hip-hop queen La Mala Rodriguez. Using a video montage, the single’s music video was projected as the band performed along to the video. 
 
 
 
Originally from Monterrey, Mexico, Kinky celebrated with a full house the eight years that Angelenos have adopted them as their own. Their performances have been experiences across the globe and have been captured by major media, such as DIRECTV, which will feature the band in its Guitar Center Sessions on February 8th, at 9pm ET/10pm PT on DIRECTV’s Audience Network, channel 239.
