Tonight: Bomba Estereo at the Larimer

Columbia's Bomba Estereo (playing tonight at the Larimer Lounge with ManCub and Izcalli) began as the mostly electronic solo project of bassist Simon Mejia, but after his first release under the moniker, he expanded the dance project to a full band. Carried by the punchy, bratty vocals of Liliana Saumet, Bomba Estereo creates a hybrid of classic house, reggaeton, dubstep and multiple other styles through synthesized loops and traditional instrumentation.

The group's infectious rhythms make verbal lyrical translation an afterthought -- though you may recognize "Ponte Bomb," which is Bomba Estereo's excellent take on the 1988 Technotronic classic, "Pump Up the Jam." This show is 21-and-up, and tickets are $15-$20. Doors open at 7 p.m., and performances start at 8.
