The Bronx at Bowery
The Bronx

When I heard that hardcore punk band The Bronx were doing an entire mariachi album, I had to see it for myself.... The seven-piece band came out all smiles and wearing full mariachi outfits - they looked fantastic. "Slave Labor", which is my favorite song from their album, was the first songs they played. From those first few notes I knew we were in for a good show. Every one of the seven or so songs they played sounded fantastic - Mariachi El Bronx filled up Bowery Ballroom with their sound and positive energy. You could tell that the band really enjoyed what they were doing - they were laughing and joking between every song. Lead singer Matt Caughthran would dance around during guitar solos causing the rest of the band to crack up. - [HeardTheySuckLive]
The above review is of Mariachi El Bronx, alter ego of LA punks The Bronx who played separate sets as both bands at Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday (4/6). El Mariachi opened the evening and was followed by Australian trio Violent Soho who recently dropped their self-titled LP on Ecstatic Peace and announced their inclusion in Lollapalooza 2010.

The Bowery show was one of three NYC-area shows on a tour that continues across the country as we speak. Those dates again, with more pictures and some videos from the show, below...
