The Power of Tri

Mexico City's El Tri gives its all to the fans -- literally

"If we played the auditorium on Friday and the civic center on Saturday, by Tuesday you can get both gigs from the underground," Lora says. Despite the fact that the fans aren't necessarily contributing to El Tri's financial success, Lora and his mates continue to soldier on for them. This past July, they released No Te Olvides de la Banda(Don't Forget the Fans) and plan to continue touring throughout the year. Lora hopes to find enough studio time while juggling the demands of the road to lay down tracks for another record, to be released next year.

The Mexican Rolling Stones have been offering an alternative to the ranchera-weary for 35 years.

And as for his long-term goals: "We expect to be rocking at least two or three million years more," Lora says. "And try to communicate what the people feel and what the people want to say a lot better."
