Los Pericos
For the first time in six years, Argentina-based reggae-rock sextet Los Pericos is set to perform at Tampa venue The Orpheum on Saturday, March 12.

General admission tickets to see Los Pericos at Orpheum are now on sale in tiers—the current tier being $60 per ticket. By show day, whatever’s left will be $75.
What’s unknown however, is which version of the Orpheum the show might happen in. Yesterday, the venue announced that it would move out of Ybor City after 20 years in the district. Owners promised to reopen elsewhere, but details on a timeline and location are unknown.
Los Pericos has sold out stadiums in South America, and even recorded a reggae version of The Police’s “Darkness” with Stewart Copeland in 1997. Most notably, the guys introduced Anthony Bourdain to street foods—including choripán, on his “No Reservations” show in 2007.

This time around, there isn’t any new music being promoted, but Los Pericos did just mark the milestone of being a band for 35 years, so if anything, you can consider this an anniversary run.
