They’ll be stopping at the massive Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles on November 12, 2021.

With four successful albums under their belt and a handful of singles and EPs, Chicano Batman have made quite a splash in the LA scene, touring with greats like Jack White and playing major festivals like Coachella. Their latest album Invisible People was released on May 1, 2020 and is funky and fresh as ever.
