Cuco came to the Sun City not to long ago for the "El Paso Firme: Action Against White Supremacy". A special event in response to the El Paso shootings. The event consisted of artists like Cuco, La Santa Cecilia, Ana Tijoux, DJ Trillo and more. I know I don't speak only for myself when I say that it is amazing when artists take time out of their schedule to not only comfort a community in pain, but also play for an important cause. It wouldn't be the first time Cuco has done something like this. Earlier this year he played at the Selena for Sanctuary, a concert in support of immigrant rights. Chicanx artists like Cuco is what gives me hope for the future. Someone younger generations (and older) can look up to.
For those that are hearing about Cuco for the first time and are looking for something to do tomorrow night, he is a 21-year old self-taught musician and self-produced musician that has been gaining more and more popularity by the month! I would describe Cuco's music as a daydream indie-pop with a touch of psychedelia here and there. Not to mention, some bilingual lyrics as well! He recently released an album called Para Mi, which was released via Interscope records. This album really shows a maturity in Cuco's sound and an expansion on the types of genres involved. For example his single, "Bossa No Sé", which intertwines the Bossa Nova genre with the Cuco touch.
Tomorrow, Cuco will take the Lowbrow Palace stage. A stage (depending if it's the UTEP or downtown location) that has been graced by acts like The Marias, Helado Negro, La Santa Cecilia, Phantogram, and Girl Ultra whom Cuco has a song with! As someone who has seen Cuco before, you don't want to miss out on it. It will be full of all the right kinds of energy and Cuco's fans are the best when it comes to just being in that moment. See you there!
