Los Lobos have made plenty of classic records over the past three decades, but none more important than 1992s Kiko. A masterpiece of mood and atmosphere, Kiko was the album that broke Los Lobos out beyond the confines of roots rock. Theyve built from Kikos stranger textures into more esoteric territory with great success. Los Lobos are still on the road with a tour marking the 20-year anniversary of Kiko, which plays Friday at Raleighs N.C. Museum of Art Amphitheatre. Showtime is 8:30 p.m. and tickets are $19-$35 ($12 for kids 7-18). See ncartmuseum.org for details.
