Cinco de Mayday.

After the next act takes the stage, the oom-pa-pa of a tuba booms like the bass in rap music. One fan of narcocorrido music in the audience tips his hat to the musicians: a baseball cap with a patch on the front depicting a parrot, a goat, and a rooster; “My three animals,” it says in Spanish—alluding to cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. He taps his snakeskin cowboy boot along to the music. The lyrics concern a smuggling run that went wrong, so someone had to die.
