"Today is our day," proclaimed singer Saul Hernandez early in Jaguares' concert on Saturday at the Greek Theatre. "Let's work until we die to destroy certain laws that destroy humanity. And remember that the best revenge is survival." Hernandez went on to send scathing messages to the lawmakers behind Prop. 187, while two video screens showed footage of police beating undocumented immigrants.

Jaguares is the only Latin band that wholeheartedly embraces the spirit of classic arena rock and gets away with it. Its third album is probably its best, thanks to the intensity of singer-songwriter Saul Hernandez, the messianic sincerity of his paper-thin voice and the naturalness with which he uses a Cuban tumbao or a son jarocho guitaron as textural additions to his morbid mood palette of mysterious grays, bloody reds and the darkest of blues.

While some bands spend their entire careers trying to record the ultimate rock anthem, Jaguares leader Saul Hernandez seems to churn them out by the dozen. This made for a particularly majestic concert Tuesday at the Universal Amphitheatre. Jaguares is actually the continuation of Mexican super group Caifanes, which in turn was nothing but the brainchild of Hernandez, a tragic, melancholy poet who appears to breathe rock 'n' roll pathos into every one of his moves.
