Here's a benefit of the "very special" variety: Stories & Songs with David Hidalgo and Louie Perez of Los Lobos. The old high school pals will tell tales of growing up in East L.A. for the "stories" portion, followed by an extremely rare musical performance of Hidalgo's and Perez's solo songs. It's to raise funds for About Productions' upcoming production Evangeline, The Queen of Make-Believe
(based on the Los Lobos song "Evangeline") the company's educational programs for at-risk youth. Cheech Marin gives an introduction, and you can even go home with a limited edition, commemorative poster created by Perez.
