Katy Guillen and the Girls, Maria the Mexican, the Philistines and more at the Brick this Saturday
This Saturday, the Midwest Music Foundation presents the final installment of its SXSW fundraising concert series with a handful of supremely talented and very different acts.
Katy Guillen and the Girls is one of Kansas City’s hottest blues-rock acts at the moment, and we have a good feeling that Guillen’s star is only just rising. Sisters Maria and Tess Cuevas have been making music since they were children playing with their grandmother in the legendary Mexican folk band Mariachi Estrella. Now, the two perform as Maria the Mexican, with a folk-pop sound and songs in both English and Spanish. Psych-rockers the Philistines and Chris Meck and the Guilty Birds round out the night.
