GIG ALERT: Helado Negro at Bowery Ballroom
Tickets $15, Doors: 8:00 PM, 18 and over
Roberto Lange is the artist known as “Helado Negro.” For those of you translating at home, that’s “black ice cream” in Spanish. Lange grew up in South Florida to Ecuadorian parents, and his gently churning electronic music ping-pongs from English to Spanish and back again. But there’s no mistaking the message on this song, titled “Young, Latin, and Proud” from the new record by Helado Negro, “Private Energy.” Helado Negro explores his Latin heritage at Bowery Ballroom tonight, with Buscabulla.
