It was on May 27th of 1989 when the four friends from the city of Satélite, México had their first appearance at the “El Hijo Del Cuervo” bar in Coyoacán, México that marked the beginnings of one of the most influential bands from Latin America of all times, Café Tacvba.

Two years after their first show, the band was able to sign a contract with Warner Music, and to everyone’s surprise, their debut album sold more than 40, 000 copies in the first two weeks of the release, becoming one of the best launches of the record company.
