Last Night: Maná At Toyota Center

Maná Toyota Center April 4, 2012

The last time Maná visited Houston, they sold out Toyota Center two nights in a row. The world's premier rock en español band is on the second leg of the Drama Y Luz tour, in support of their latest album of the same name.

The group from the land of tequila y mariachi (Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico) uses a combination of rock, reggae, and bachata to tear at their fan's heartstrings and incite revolutions of love and activism. Think Bob Marley crossed with The Rolling Stones singing en Español.

"Buenas noches, Houston! Nos la vamos a pasar de puta madre esta noche" proclaimed lead singer Fher Olvera. Loosely translated, he said, "Hey guys, we are gonna have fun tonght."

Key word: Loosely.
