Que La Chinga had a gig before they even really existed, and the band quickly formed in the summer of 2002 so that several members could make good their promise to a local promoter. At first sparsely acoustic before turning electric, they began creating a musical hangover of haunting mandolin melodies, jangly guitars, bittersweet vocals, and a rhythmic attack of bass and drums rife with imagery of broken whiskey bottles, minimum-wage redneck towns, and eulogies to Johnny Cash. A bar band at heart, Que La Chinga has taken the stage often since their formation over three years ago, and they have released two albums independently.Submitted by Eventful on behalf of Humboldt
