Arizona Arts Live and Arizona Athletics welcome Tucson’s own globally beloved Calexico in an electric tailgate performance celebrating Arizona Football’s season opener versus NAU. Don’t miss the infectious riffs of this desert noir sensation led by Joey Burns and John Convertino, together with Sergio Mendoza, Jacob Valenzuela, Rick Peron, and Brian Lopez.

Praised by NPR for their “sprawling, cross-cultural indie rock,” Calexico has spent the better part of the past three decades exploring the dusty musical borderlands of the American Southwest, crafting singular, cinematic songs as mysterious and magnificent as the arid desert landscapes that inspired them.

Calexico will play hits from across their expansive repertoire. After decades on the road, Calexico’s music remains boundless and romantic, still gazing upon the horizon in search of their next adventure. Experience the untamed spirit of the Southwest by Calexico in this free, public performance presented on the east end of the Mall at the University of Arizona main campus in Tucson, AZ.

Can’t Get Enough of Calexico?

Don’t miss their return on January 13 at 7:30PM in the Linda Ronstadt Music Hall for a one-night only symphonic experience with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Presented in partnership with the Tucson Jazz Festival. This concert is available as part of a Create Your Own Subscription. For more information and tickets, please visit the Tucson Symphony Orchestra.

Presented together with Arizona Athletics
