Mariachi El Bronx...

I think the best band I saw at at Riot Fest was Mariachi El Bronx. The are out of Los Angeles born from a punk band called the Bronx. While their music is not true mariachi they have the instrumentation. If you listen to the general sound it brings to mind the band Calexico. While Calexico has a more southwestern desert sound with Mariachi El Bronx think urban with both bands having some of the same chord voicing in the horn/violin arrangements. Of course Mariachi El Bronx has way cooler suits for their gigs. 

Cool drummer with a stand up set. Kind of makes you want to play drums if you get to stick your sticks in your pants like this. 

Cathy likes this band. They are not a new discovery. We had some of their cds already.
