Como un extraño a hoy me voy, como un extraño es lo que soy

After receiving their blessing from Los Tigres Del Norte, East L.A. badasses Thee Commons metamorphosed into new stage outfit Tropa Magica. Still consisting of the chunster Pacheco brothers and their signature psychedelic cumbia punk, Tropa Magica boasts a “troop” of new “magical” sounds, now having added a second guitar to their repertoire. Tropa Magica will be releasing monthly singles this year into the Summer and their debut LP in the Fall. From there, with most of the year ahead of them, and given their successful track record, the tropical sky’s the limit.
