Raul Malo, the Grammy Award-winning leader of The Mavericks, loves to joke about his human compassion and self-proclaimed “hippie speak.” The Cuban immigrant wants his band’s eclectic blend of classic country, cow-punk and standards to unify audiences.“Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in me, but I’d like to make a place where all people can come together,” he says.

Friday, May 19. $37-40, 8:30pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall, 245-4980.
