I saw these guys at the Dave Matthews Caravan festival in Atlantic City last summer, and it made for an entertaining pre-Flaming Lips Friday afternoon. The spangly suit-wearing alter ego of the hard-core band The Bronx who, naturally, are from Los Angeles, Mariachi El Bronx are fronted by singer Matt Caughthran, and they're serious about what they do. Thankfully, this is not a kitschy affair, as the video for "Holy," and their 2011 self-titled second album demonstrate. And if that floats your boat, check out their cool cover of Prince's "I Would Die 4 U" here.  Tonight at JB's, Two Gallants open.
