New Shows Alert: Lucinda returns to Tucson (and Mesa), Brandi plays Leo Rich
Also, Brandi Carlile will return to our lovely town for a Special Intimate Acoustic Evening at The Leo Rich Theater in the Tucson Convention Center on June 3. Her performance will benefit her newly-established charity called The Looking Out Foundation. Although the focus will be mainly on the environment, the foundation will offer grants to a variety of organizations and causes, and a dollar per ticket for this event will be allocated for it. There is a much smaller number of tickets available at The Leo Rich than her previous Rialto shows, so be sure to get your tickets early! They will also be on sale next Friday, April 3 at 10am. We'll provide a handy link to the TCC's ticketing page right here once it becomes available to us.

We at the Rialto are very excited for the debut of a quarterly Latin Dance Night featuring Sergio Mendoza y la Orkestra. This Saturday, March 14th, Sergio and friends will be joined by special guests Descarga and Manteca.
For those of you that haven't seen Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta in action, here's some great footage courtesy of the Tucson Citizen:
Everything gets underway at 8 pm with the latin jazz stylings of Manteca, followed by Tucson's best salsa band (and El Parador mainstays) Descarga. Expect Sergio y la Orkesta to take the stage at around 10:30.
