7:00 PM Stage: Bad Hombres/Good Wives Don Ernesto, a muy macho cartel lord of Sinaloa, is used to getting exactly what he wants. In this case, what he wants is Eva — the young woman he sent to a convent to be trained to become his perfect, submissive wife. En route to meet her future husband, Eva bumps into Mario, the dreamboat son of a rival Narco capitán, and her heart leaps. Will Mario "rub out" Don Ernesto? Will Don Ernesto "rub out" Mario? Or will there be a double Narco wedding bringing peace to the town? Lust, love and war are in the air, along with lots of festive Mexican banda songs.

8:00 PM Music: Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Indo-Pak Coalition Few musicians share the ability of Rudresh Mahanthappa to embody the expansive possibilities of his music with his culture. He is an alto saxophonist and composer who materializes a sound that hybridizes progressive jazz and South Indian classical music in a fluid and forward-looking form that reflects Mahanthappa's own experience growing up as a second-generation Indian-American.

The Indo-Pak Coalition, featuring Pakinstani-American guitarist Rez Abbasi and percussionist Dan Weiss, blends the sounds of jazz with Mahanthappa's South Indian roots, creating a new and sublime complexity of sound. The result is a fiery jazz with Indian-Pakistani influences and a modern touch.
