Y La Bamba to perform on Drinking From Puddles on 12/14/11 !!
"Y La Bamba makes fractured folk that sounds as if it comes from dog-eared diaries. The author is statuesque Luz Elena, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, whose vintage vocals seem to come from the 78-rpm era." -Buzzbands LA
"...mixes Devendra Banhart-influenced art-folk with hazy femme vocals and traditional Mexican sounds to weirdly entrancing effect." - LA Weekly
played some tracks before this list starts below.

A Historic on-air performance by The Rats on Drinking From Puddles !!
The Rats were not only one of the best Punk Rock bands ever to come out of Portland, Oregon…The Rats were one of the best Punk Rock bands ever…period! A direct pre-cursor to Fred & Toody Cole’s universally beloved & longest running (of many) bands, Dead Moon, The Rats originally reigned from 1980-1984, releasing three classic full length LPs, all highly sought after collector’s items (and now receiving the much anticipated re-issue service via Portland’s Mississippi Records label).
The Rats perfectly captured the urgency & energy of the still young Punk movement of the time, while still penning tunes melodic enough that they burrowed into your brain for life.
