Los Angeles psych-soul four-piece Chicano Batman source their high-spirited alternative synthesis from tropicália, West Coast psychedelia, and late-’60s/early-’70s soul. Their album Invisible People (2020) — their most sonically varied and cohesive to date — is a statement of hope, a proclamation that we are all invisible people, and that despite race, class, or gender we can overcome our differences and stand together. Experience the four-piece’s combination of “soul, surf and tropicália into a raging blend of fire and excitement” (Rolling Stone) in the Hunter Center. Multidisciplinary visual artist, art critic and curator Lido Pimienta, a composer and musical producer of Afro Indigenous (Wayuu) Ancestry from Colombia, will open the night’s performance.

Made up of Eduardo Arenas (bass, guitar, vocals), Carlos Arévalo (guitars), Bardo Martinez (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar), and Gabriel Villa (drums), LA’s Chicano Batman have been renowned for the best part of a decade. The group opened for Jack White, Alabama Shakes, Vampire Weekend, and Portugal. The Man in recent tours and has played major festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo. After signing with ATO Records, the group released Freedom is Free in 2017, teaming up with Leon Michels to craft an ambitious sonic experience that enhances the soul and R&B elements of their sound.
