What to see at UMS, according to Enrique Jimenez of Altas

Adam Rojo
Enrique Jimenez
Enrique Jimenez is a man about town -- if you've been to more than a handful of local shows over the last several years, chances are you've crossed paths with him. His own band Altas (formerly Panal S.A. de C.V.) is an experimental instrumental rock band par excellence and can be caught at Eslinger Gallery tonight, July 25th, at 10 p.m. and at Mutiny Information Cafe on Saturday, July 26 at 6:30 p.m.. Because of his expertise (born of his natural curiosity about the local music scene), we caught up with the affable guitarist about his own top picks for the UMS this weekend. He provided a rather extensive list, but we asked him about ten of his favorites as a kind of shortened user guide for anyone attending the festival.
