Javier Batiz is one of Tijuana’s musical legends, and he is frequently referred to as someone who taught Carlos Santana how to play guitar. In Batiz’s web page, and in other sources, he is identified as a major figure in the development of Mexican rock. I heard him play once at the Tijuana brewery and he regularly re-appears around the city. This Sunday, March 29, he will perform at the CECUT at 4 p.m. as part of the 5th Annual Tijuana History Fair. The fair, which starts at 9 a.m. and lasts until 5 p.m., is free and it will feature conferences, videos, art expositions, historical documents and old cars. For more information on the fair (in Spanish), go here.
The CECUT – Tijuana’s cultural center – is just a few minutes from the San Ysidro border. For directions to the CECUT, go here.
*Don’t forget the time difference is still in effect. 4 p.m. in Tijuana is 5 p.m. in the United States*
