It’s Cinco de Mayo! The day in which we Americans celebrate the victory Mexico put upon the mighty French in the Battle Of Puebla. If you’re looking for a place to celebrate, head up to City Center at Oyster Point in Newport News and enjoy the great sounds of one of the best up and coming bands, X Ambassadors. Hampton Roads is kind of a second home to the New York-based band as they have been immensely popular here ever since 96X played their first single, Litost, 3 years ago. Originally just Ambassadors, they were signed by Interscope Records after Imagine Dragons heard an acoustic version of their tune, Unconsolable, on the radio. They are touring in support of their upcoming debut full-length album, VHS, featuring the single Renegades.
Tonight’s show at City Center is brought to you by our good friends at 96X and is absolutely FREE! It kicks off at 5p with Robin Domingo’s Mariachi Band and the always fun AudioStrobeLight! X Ambassadors will hit the stage at 8:15p. Get there early, grab a good spot and a couple of cervezas and enjoy a great night of music.
