Sounding like a lost band from the DGC Records roster heyday, Gata Negra seems unafraid to play to its influences -- the Denver-based three piece blends some mid-'90s-referenced riotous vocals and guitar with the true heartache of rhythm and blues.
Carried by band leader Whitney Rehr -- who's voice fluctuates between the sultry strength of Chrissie Hynde and the subtle power of Kim Gordon's murmur -- Gata Negra is powerful in its sonic stance and instrumentally on point while still leaving room for the unpredictability of Rehr's cries. Headlining an all-local line-up tonight at the Larimer, Gata Negra shares the stage with Starz N' Ends, Joe Fornothin' and C4X. This show is 21 and up, and tickets are $8. Doors are at 7 p.m. and show is at 8 p.m.
