VILLALOBOS BROTHERS The three Villalobos brothers were all violin prodigies growing up in Xalapa, Mexico. In 2000, Ernesto went to Manhattan School of Music on a Fulbright scholarship, in 2002, Alberto studied at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, and in 2003, Luis went to the Hochschule für Musik Freiburg in Germany. But a Carnegie Hall reunion of the brothers in 2005 has led to an active, non-classical concert career. They describe their music as “drawing inspiration from jazz, rock, classical, and traditional Mexican folk to deliver a message of love, brotherhood, and social justice.” Their six-piece band plays at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $26 in advance, $28 at the door. Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, 2020 Addison St.
