Mariachi El Bronx at Johnny Brenda's

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 punk 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.

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.
