Alexis y Fido Bring That Ass-Rumbling Reggaeton to La Covacha June 18

Does anyone ever get the feeling that, despite living in Miami, the only way to catch some good Latin music is overhearing it playing at ass-rumbling volume from your Cuban neighbors' backyard while they celebrate whatever minor event they've decided to celebrate that night?

In an industry filled with strange names paying homage to even stranger things, Alexis y Fido are surprisingly good. They reached gold with 2005's debut, The Pitbulls, and their reggaeton makes you want to get up and shake it, which is generally regarded as the primary function of Latin music.

The Puerto Rican duo's current hit, "Contéstame El Teléfono," combines their signature reggaeton with poppy singing that sounds a bit like Enrique Iglesias' old music. (Remember, back when we thought Pitbull was just a dog breed.)

Come enjoy their new music, cover your ears for the heavy stuff, and give yourself a real excuse for why you forgot to wish your dad a happy Father's Day the next morning.

Alexis y Fido. Saturday, June 18. La Covacha, 10730 NW 25th St., Doral. The show starts at 9 pm. and tickets cost $30 plus fees via wantickets.com. Call 305-594-3717 or visit lacovacha.com.
