Y LA BAMBA at Milkboy ArtHouse

Go see Y LA BAMBA at Milkboy ArtHouse this Sunday!

Y La Bamba has been many things, but at the heart of it is singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza’s inquisitive sense of self. Their fifth record, Mujeres, carries on the Portland-based band’s affinity for spiritual contemplation, but goes a step further in telling a story with a full emotional spectrum.

Members:
Luzelena Mendoza: guitar, vocals
Ben Meyercord: bass, vocals
Mike Kitson: percussion, vocals
Sean Flinn: guitar
Eric Schrepel: accordion
Paul Cameron: guitar, vocals
Scott Magee: ukelele, clarinet, percussion, vocals

“I was going through my photos online and I got this case of FOMO—envy for this person who has traveled all over the world,” Williams said recently, “and I was like ‘oh, my god, it’s me!’
Now I’m telling myself [to] take the day to appreciate whatever city you’re in.
