Venue: MSA Annex
Start Time: 7:00pm

XIXA is a guitar-slinging six-piece formed in Tucson, in the heart of the deep Southwest, uniquely attuned to the desert and their Latin roots. Combining gritty guitars and drums, the bumping grind of Peruvian chicha, and windswept psychedelic desert blues into a mesmerizing stew, they are by turns trippy and devilish, like a jam band getting high on Diá de Los Muertos.

XIXA’s songwriting and sound, a collaborative effort of co-frontmen Brian Lopez and Gabriel Sullivan, has solidified into a dark, near-mystical experience. Collectively, they’ve gathered spiritual and psychedelic influences from all over the world, creating something entirely unique. As Tucsonans, experiencing XIXA is a must. Their performances bring out hidden aspects of our lives in the desert — the mysterious, the ethereal, and the mind-bending.

COVID-19 Safety:

Working closely with the Pima County Health Department, MSA Annex follows the highest COVID-19 safety protocols. The MSA Annex Festival Grounds were constructed to seat audiences of 500 people and during these times will seat just 94. Guests will sit either in groups of two or four and must arrive together before entering the grounds. Unfortunately, no single tickets are able to be sold.

By using electronic tickets only, the entire experience will be hands-free. When concert-goers arrive, their phone will be scanned and they will be escorted to their personal, physically distanced 6-foot circle. Face coverings must be worn upon entry and when not seated. All seating groups are placed at a minimum of 10 feet apart from one another. COVID Safety Monitors will be on-site to enforce the face-covering protocols and escort anyone out of compliance out of the venue.

All visitors are encouraged to download Covid Watch Arizona, the University’s, free and anonymous exposure notification app.
