Something's up with the young Mexican singer, the one with the fashionably shaved head and the $1,800 ostrich-skin shoes. He's trying to act natural, but he can't completely contain his excitement. He's sitting in a low-budget, second-story recording studio in Long Beach, where he grew up a short immigrant kid with outsized dreams of playing pro baseball.

As a performer, Lupillo Rivera goes beyond the call of duty when it comes to entertaining his fans. An indication of his zealousness came halfway through the singer's performance Friday at the Universal Amphitheatre, when a luxurious bed was brought onstage, complete with a young, negligee-clad woman. Rivera looked at her with a mischievous glint in his eyes.

Los ANGELES had never seen an event like this before, an awards show honoring the colorful, raunchy, outrageous array of performers arising from the region's blue-collar Latino neighborhoods. This was the Grammys for the immigrant underground, artists who had built grass-roots followings in barrio nightclubs with swaggering, foul-mouthed songs about drug smugglers, fugitives, coyotes and killers, often spiced with sex and social defiance.

As I sat in my car early Sunday morning in a predominantly Latino neighborhood waiting for a friend to come home, I observed a man arrive at the residence across the street. He walked alongside the house and tapped on a window. Moments later a young woman emerged. For no apparent reason, the man became hostile towards her. It soon became clear that he was intoxicated, expending the final effects of his alcoholic binge from the previous night. I wondered from what drinking hole the misguided man stumbled out from.

Half a million people are expected to crowd downtown Los Angeles streets Sunday for the 15th annual Fiesta Broadway, despite the absence of many of the high-profile international stars who dominate the Latin pop scene. Unlike past years when established stars such as Celia Cruz and Tito Puente topped the bill for the all-day Cinco de Mayo festival, many of Sunday's scheduled performers are second- and third-tier entertainers.
