Mexican band Mama Pulpa is coming to the Rainbow Room on Thursday, July 7 before heading to the Ska festival in Victoria on the weekend.

Mama Pulpa has been performing their energetic ska, reggae and Latin rock since 1996. Their latest album, Tocadiscos, does its best to emulate the sound of vinyl that members of the group love so much.

Coming from the south of Mexico City, Mama Pulpa has become known as a festival favourite.

Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Doors open at 8 p.m. The Rainbow Room is located above Rainbow Lanes on Fourth Avenue near Redford Street.
