Cafe Tacuba at Nokia Theatre

On "De Este Lado Del Camino," the third track from their newest album "'El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco," Café Tacuba celebrates the art of creative meandering. "From this side of the street, without looking for any destination / and although the design isn't very clear," lead singer Rubén Albarrán intones in Spanish, his gravelly honeyed tenor guiding the rhythm section through a gathering storm of ethereal keyboard chords on its leisurely sojourn. Unhurried and unworried about the trail ahead, but sure of its ultimate purpose: That artistic approach has defined the Mexico City quartet and helped it endure for two decades as one of alt-Latin rock's most popular and influential acts. Nokia Theatre, 800 W. Olympic Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Fri. $29.50-$75.
