Spotlight 29 Casino welcomes Paquita la del Barrio

27 June 2011

COACHELLA, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Paquita la del Barrio, known as one of the great defenders of women through her songs, will be making a special appearance in the Spotlight 29 Casino Showroom on Saturday, July 30th, at 8pm.
Tickets are $30, $40 and $50 each.

Born Francisca Viveros Barradas, in the town of Alto Lucero, Veracruz, Paquita is nicknamed "Franny from the neighborhood." Her songs usually take a stance against Mexico's sexist male culture. Her signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, is "Me estas oyendo, inutil?" ("Are you listening to me, you good-for-nothing?").
It was in 1970 when Paquita decided to travel to Mexico City to try her luck with the name that she would later become known as. She wrote songs with pride and courage against males, like "Cheque en Blanco", "Tres veces te engane" and "Borrate".

It was not only her defiance against men that made Paquita famous, but also her songs about the social stigma in which women would have to wait for men to notice them. Paquita did not base her career on airtime on the radio and television, but it was based on her live performances, that made her famous.

Paquita's songs include "Acabame de Matar" "Ni un Cigarro", "El Fracaso de mi Amor", "Un Amor a Mi Medida", "Borrate" "Me saludas a la tuy", "El Precio de tu Amor", "Al Cuarto Vaso", "Inviatame a Pecar", "No hay Quinto Malo", "Un Amor a mi Medida", and "Animas que no Amanezca".
