Choice concerts: Gabriela, been meanin’ to tell ya…

Aug. 13, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Fillmore Miami Beach

At first blush, the acoustic sound of Rodrigo y Gabriela, Mexican-born guitar-playing duo currently residing in Ireland, is a mix of classical and Latin styles. But you begin to realize that these two really like metal.

And not just because they do a very good cover of the Led Zep chestnut “Stairway to Heaven.” Give a listen to “Diablo Rojo” from their first album and you get the general idea: parts of the song can only be described as shredding.

Alternatively nicknamed Rodgab and RyG, this is a duo worth seeing live.

Watch “Diablo Rojo”:
