Living up to their reputation as the “world’s greatest party band,” the B-52s will officially get the party started on Sunday, Sept. 18 as the season’s headlining act.

The evening of Saturday, Nov. 5 is sure be a dazzling one when The Midtown Men bring to life some of their favorite 1960s hits at the PAC.

Formed in East L.A. more than 30 years ago, Los Lobos have become known for fusing the sounds of their Mexican heritage with American rock ‘n’ roll, to create a sound that is uniquely their own.

The multiple Grammy Award winners will perform at the PAC on Saturday, Feb. 11.
