8:00 PM Jenny & the Mexicats and Bang Data To say Jenny & the Mexicats were bilingual from the start isn’t just a reference to the fact that their albums have lyrics sung in both English and Spanish. When trumpeter Jenny Ball first teamed up in Spain with percussionist David Gonzalez Bernardos, Ball didn’t speak Spanish and Bernardos spoke no English, but they still found themselves sharing the same language of music. Recruiting others who favored the same kind of Flamenco, folk rock, and rockabilly influences led to forming a band and relocating to Mexico City in 2012, where they released a debut album that scored several radio hits: “Verde Mas Alla,” “ME Voy a Ir,” and “Flor.”

Their sophomore album Ome seems to be somewhat more dance-centered, even a bit disco, especially the funky lead single “Labios,” which online references indicate is still omnipresent on Tijuana and Mexico City dance floors. 2017’s Mar abierto/Open Sea album keeps the boogie bubbling, even if you just spin through portions of the tracks as I did. Their June 21 appearance at Little Italy’s Music Box will be opened by another Latin-influenced and hip-hop inclined ensemble, Oakland’s Bang Data, fronted by Deuce Eclipse from Zion I. Breaking Bad fans will remember hearing their music in the season four episode “Salud,” and they received a lot of positive, if often bemused, press for their 2016 Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute album, Quiero Creedence.

8:00 PM Film: Victoria Victoria is a 2015 German crime thriller film directed by Sebastian Schipper and starring Laia Costa and Frederick Lau. It is one of the few feature films shot in a single continuous take. Victoria is a Spanish girl who moved to Berlin and has been living there for three months. She works in a cafe for a meager wage, and does not know anybody in the new city. In addition, she does not speak much German, and her only common language with the people around her is English. Leaving a club at around 4 o’clock in the morning after a night of dancing and drinking, she meets four young men who are denied entry to the club. They are “Sonne” (sun), “Boxer”, “Blinker” (turn signal), and “Fuß” (foot). The men invite her to take a walk through the city and she agrees. After stealing some alcohol from an all night shop, they all get on the roof of an apartment building where they drink and smoke marijuana together, while Boxer reveals that he spent time in jail for hurting someone.

Film is part of the German Currents Kino Series.

8:00 PM Stage: As You Like It Rosalind flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
