When Yuzo Nieto and his Pink Hawks play, people dance. Even when the band was a highbrow, avant-garde duo, it was hard to resist moving to its free-form, sprawling songs. Pink Hawks has evolved over its ten years, into a multi-instrumental Afrobeat outfit — and now, also, a Chicano hip-hop orchestra. All along, Nieto and the musicians he has brought on have respectfully borrowed from jazz, funk, soul, cumbia and conga, honoring the various cultures informing the songs. Pink Hawks will drop its newest album, Boo, at this Lost Lake show. In recent years, the project has showcased the poetic stylings of Westword MasterMind and MC Molina Speaks, who’s joined Pink Hawks full-time, bringing lyrical dexterity to an already musically limber band.
