Long before iPods, there was Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán. The group has existed in various formations since 1897—yes, you read that correctly—when it was founded in the southwest Mexican town of Tecalitlán. Now based out of Mexico City, the troupe consists of 13 members on such instruments as trumpets, violins, and guitarron, a large type of guitar. Sat 8 p.m.
