DOWNEY - David Hidalgo and Louie Perez started writing songs together when they were in high school, way before they ever became members of that group known as "just another band from East L.A.": aka Los Lobos.As the main songwriters in one of the world's most solid and long-lasting roots-rock enclaves, they've accumulated an outstanding collection of tunes. But Perez and Hidalgo had never offered fans a chance to hear those songs in their purest, elemental form. Until now. On Saturday, Jan. 21, at 8 p.m., residents will have the opportunity to experience a rare and special duet performance of favorites from their four-decade collaboration, delivered along with stories about how those songs were born, when they perform at the Downey Theatre. Tickets are $41 for the balcony and $46 in the orchestra level, and can be purchased at the Downey Theatre box office, online at downeytheatre.com or by calling (562) 861-8211. Tickets can also be purchased at the box office starting one hour before show time.
