One of America’s most accomplished bands, Calexico, is returning for its third visit to Israel next month.

Hailing from the southeast, the sprawling band led by multi-instrumentalist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino uses a rustic folkie base to incorporate everything from dusty, lo-fi rock, Duane Eddy twang and Springsteenian earnest Americana to spaghetti western noir, mariachi and Portuguese Fado.

Their performances in 2009 and 2013, both in Tel Aviv, have helped make them local legends and explained the sell-out of their upcoming show with special guest and frequent collaborator Depredo at the Gesher Theater on November 16.

The band has added a second show the following night at the Barby Club, the site of their earlier triumphs.

If you go to only one show this year, Calexico should be it.
