Melodic, sweet and tough as nails, María Del Pilar plays music that is like the soundtrack of a quinceañera for a riot girl. Her concert tonight (Friday, May 13th) at the UCSB MultiCultural Center at 8pm will air LIVE on KCSB-FM 91.9! (streaming live at www.kcsb.org: HERE)
Hailed by CNN Español as “…one of the most important voices in the Latin alternative music scene in the U.S.,” María Del Pilar is a sophisticated Chilean-American solo artist who has garnered acclaim from aficionados as eclectic as her work.
She was the one-time voice of America’s DIY/bilingual youth movement, and last year her song “Miss Funeral” was featured on NPR during Alt Latino’s “Undeniable Strength of a Great Song,” episode. Her single “Ilegal En Estyle,” was named by the OC Weekly as one of the decade’s top ten songs about illegal immigration and was included on a list of notable immigration songs by PRI’s The World.
Tickets for this concert are still available at the adjacent Associated Students Ticket Office. Doors open at 730pm.
