Locos Por Juana Nominated for Grammy, Celebration at Jazid Dec. 19

Miami's favorite Latin - rock - cumbia - whatever mash-up band, Locos Por Juana,

has finally got its due from the awards gods. The Locos have finally

scored their first Grammy nomination, in the category of Best Latin

Rock or Alternative Album, for La Verdad. Note that this is in

the regular Grammys, not the Latin Grammys -- the overall recording

academy began to recognize several Latin music categories some years


To celebrate, on Friday, December 19 the band will play a special show

at Jazid, where it's held a Wednesday-night residency for the last five

years. The show starts at 11 p.m., and Itagui Correa, the band's

frontman, will autograph copies of the album's title single.

Jazid, 1342 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-673-9372; www.jazid.net.
