The Mavericks: “‘En Espanol’ World Tour,” 8 p.m. Nov. 12, Penn’s Peak, Jim Thorpe. The Mavericks, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries, has gone through three distinct phases since the group was founded in Miami in 1989: An initial period of success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the 1990s, a hiatus starting 2003 when the musicians each went their own way, and a reunion in 2012. The Mavericks first-ever, all-Spanish album is “En Español.” The album represents a diversity of music styles and cultural traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi to reimagined Afro-Cuban classics to five originals written or co-written by Malo. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets: www.ticketmaster.com; Ticketmaster: 800-745-3000; Penn’s Peak box office, 325 Maury Road, Jim Thorpe.
