Delgado brothers refresh the Strip with Hi-Tones
Published: September 14, 2011
DD: No, I think we’ve catered to everything. We’ve gone from like Piñata Protest to Heavy Cream from Nashville, an all-female indie-punk band. That was a crazy show. We’re gonna have Santiago Jimenez Jr. play here, Flaco Jimenez’s brother, on the 23rd. And we’re gonna have an all-female show in like two weeks. You name it. We’re gonna have hip-hop, folk, blues, jazz, everything.
What’s the schedule like?
DD: We’re open every day from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. We’re gonna have football games, a lot of people have been asking us. Weekends are basically gonna be our live music days.
Are you doing the booking?
DD: Yeah, it’s going through me.
What else is coming up?
DD: We’re gonna have Burrofest here on the 30th with L.A. David. And we’ll be doing Monkeyfest in November.
Do you know who’s playing Burrofest?
DD: He hasn’t guaranteed it, but for now it’s going to be Piñata Protest, Los de Esta Noche, and De los Muertos.
Do you do happy hour?
DD: No, but it’s really cheap. Like $2 tallies (Lone Star), pitchers are between $9 and $12, $4 imports and craft beers, and $2.50 wells all the time. And we also have some special shots ($4.50) like La Bomba Roja, which is Big Red and Jägermeister. And we also have the Chamoy Drop, made with tequila infused with sweet and sour and some cherries. That one sells a lot. •
