Next up for the Brujos, what promises to be a very exciting spring season begins with the Brujos hosting El Paso on February 25th, 2017.
A friendly reminder that the Brujos are selling tickets to Albuquerque The Magazine's The Best of the City Party 2016 on December 2, 2016 for $30.
That's $10 cheaper than the retail price, and $20 cheaper than tickets at the door on the day of the event.
