A crowded stage as Cafe Tacuba plays a 2008 show in Buenos Aires.

Over the last 20 years, Café Tacuba have often been called The Beatles of Latin music. The chilango quartet has always paid tribute to its Mexican roots by incorporating such regional styles as jorocho and norteno while mixing doses of rock and ska.

On Tuesday night, November 24, the band makes its way to Club Nokia. Tickets are on-sale now, but we've got a pair of tickets for a blogdowntown reader who would like to see the show for free.

The band recently added a drummer to the mix and have been moving more towards the alternative hemisphere all the while grabbing Grammy awards along the way.

On Friday, the band plays to the east at Fox Theater Pomona.

Want to see the show? We've got one pair of tickets to give away. Just leave a comment telling us your favorite Café Tacuba song and why you love it so much. Make sure to include contact info via email or Facebook. Contest closes Monday at 10pm.
