Calle 13 wins big at Latin Grammys

calle 13

Puerto Rican genre-mashers Calle 13 went undefeated at the Latin Grammy awards in Las Vegas, Thursday, winning all five awards it was nominated for.

The duo took home Album of the Year honors for its oh-so-excellent "Los De Atras Vienen Conmigo," as well as Grammys for best urban album, alternative song, short video ("La Perla") and Record of the Year ("No Hay Nadie Como TĂș" -- a collaboration with Mexican rock troupe Cafe Tacuba).

Let's hope the band brings its boundary blurring live show through the Washington area soon. Consider it a victory lap!
