MP3 + Live: Catch Calexico in Petaluma with Sea Of Bees

Live Calexico is an experience. Live Calexico at a small (and awesome) venue is an experience you just cannot pass up. So don’t.

If you’re in the Yay Area or anywhere north, head to the historic Mystic Theatre in Petaluma tonight. Sacramento‘s Sea of Bees open for Calexico. There’s still a few tickets available. While you’re in town, stop by Heebe Jeebe for a ¡Dia De Los Gigantes! Shirt .

Here’s a taste of what you’re in for:

Calexico “El Picador” (live)
from China Theater, Stockholm 4.25.03 

Sea of Bees “Marmalade”
from Songs for the Ravens [follow]
