What to do: Razpa on the Plaza in Durham this Saturday

It pains me somewhat that I'm unable to make it up to D.C. this evening for the free Julieta Venegas concert at the Kennedy Center. Asi es la vida. Instead, maybe I can make it to downtown Durham this Saturday for a free show by Latin rockers Razpa. The show will be at the CCB Plaza (corner of Corcoran and Parrish streets) at 5:30 pm.. You can see what Sylvia has to say about Razpa in this post, or check out the official p.r.:
Razpa is a five-piece Latin rock band based in Chapel Hill that uses heavy grooves and commanding musicianship to spread an impassioned message about social inequalities, injustices and human emotions. Mixing elements of cumbia, salsa, reggae and samba with rock and roll, Razpa brings a high-energy, danceable sound with a razor-sharp edge. Formed in 2006 as a project to bring a fresh sound to the famed Chapel Hill music scene, Razpa is quickly becoming a fan favorite in both the English and Spanish–speaking live music circles. Combining mostly original songs with a handful of covers, a live Razpa delivers dynamic and infectious music.

Razpa will be appearing with Durham-based band Red Collar.
