Home is where your bloody corazon (heart) is for La Plebe. Part of an underground musical network that exists between the Bay Area and Mexico City, all the members of the band live in San Francisco's Mission District, and their songs are odes to their neighborhood. "La Posata" is about a place they frequent at 24th and Bryant streets; "Exploited Labor" is about day laborers; "Conquista 21" deals with gentrification and a mother trying to hold on to four kids and an apartment; "El Certificate" tells the story of an immigrant boy from Mexico who gets made fun of because he is in the subsidized lunch line for poor kids. "Me hacen burla porque soy pobre y mojado" ("they make fun of me because I'm poor and undocumented") resonates through the dance hall. ~
