Is Local Songstress Diana Gameros The Latin Feist?

Next time you're wandering through the Mission on a weekend evening wondering which Mexican joint to hit, in our opinion, the clear winner should be Roosevelt Tamale Parlor. The food is to die, but what really separates this place from the pack is Diana Gameros, the amazingly talented singer, songwriter, and musician who performs there every Friday and Saturday evening. It's a cozy setting, and you'll feel privileged to have a great seat (there's not a bad one in the house!) for her renditions of traditional Spanish and French language favorites, as well as her own original tunes (some which are in English!). Also adding to her allure: She's super-cute to boot! Her voice (and her bangs!) evoke a Latin Feist, although her background is all her own. Gameros, who hails from Juarez, Mexico, has played music all her life. She taught herself piano as a kid and guitar as a teen. And even though she writes music in an old-world style, she counts indie acts Andrew Bird, Beirut, Broken Social Scene, and Jón Þór Birgisson (lead singer of Sigur Ros) as influences, as well as classical avant garde artists like Jürg Frey and the Kronos Quartet. Want to see the beautiful talent in action away from Roosevelt's? You're in luck. The songstress will showing off her impressive vocals at Galería de la Raza's open mic night this Sunday. Get the deets on the free event below.
When: Monday, September 12, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Galería de la Raza, 2857 24th Street (at Bryant Street); 415-826-8009.
