Tucson's own Calexico has made one of their concerts available (Nuremberg 2009) for streaming and downloading. Calexico's Joey Burns has also been very busy lately with Artists For Action, an Arizona organization that is actively speaking out against AZ's controversial SB 1070. Calexico has a history of hosting benefit concerts in support of various border issues. [via]
Benefit Concert: Calexico in Calexico. The band Calexico will play for the first time ever in the City of Calexico July 9th in a benefit concert promoting border crossing death awareness. Since the U.S. Border Patrol began to document these deaths in 1999, over 2000 illegal immigrants have died in search of a new life in the United States. Calexico, formed by Joey Burns and John Convertino, will donate all proceeds to a non-profit organization supporting humanity.
