Deemed the "Latin American Hendrix" by the Los Angeles Times, Omar Torrez has shared the stage with Tom Waits, Jethro Tull and Buena Vista Social Club. Bringing his post-modern rock shot through with Mexican and gut-bucket blues to the stage of The Triple Door, Torrez continues to tear down cultural barriers with his music. His songs have been featured on television shows like Heroes, Felicity and Whoopie, and now's your chance to catch Torrez in person, as he plays a selection of songs from his latest album, A Night of Serious Drinking, and much more.

The sound needed to be adjusted for Sister Sparrow. Could not hear the vocals over the instruments. They were a great group, it just upset me that I could not make out what was being sung. I preferred the opening act, Jelly Bread. They were fantastic and the sound was good. I'd go see them any day. The drummer blew me away. He's a great drummer and vocalist. All four musicians were excellent. The group was funkadelic and got me up and dancing. Loved them. I gave only 4 stars because of the lousy sound for SS & TDBs.
