  • 5 to 8 p.m. June 19, The Grove plaza, 8th and Main streets, Boise. downtownboise.org. Free. Opening: Steve Fulton.

Let the outdoor dancing begin. Latin rhythms will fill the air when The Iguanas hit the stage at Alive After Five.

Formed in the late 1980s, the Louisiana-based band has flirted with mainstream success. The Iguanas' 1994 album "Nuevo Boogaloo" made some commercial noise and birthed a catchy track, "Boom Boom Boom," which was featured on an episode of NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street."

But gigging for blissful fans in clubs and at festivals is where this roots- and Chicano-rock group feels at home.
