Mariachi el Bronx @ MWTX (not-SXSW 2010)
The Bronx

[The Bronx] has an alter ego: Mariachi El Bronx, which released an album last year and showed up Wednesday night at Emo's in traditional embroidered mariachi costumes with traditional instruments, from trumpet to guitarron. It performs the Bronx's repertory, but with long-lined melodies and the rhythms of Mexican rancheras and sones. It turns out that Matt Caughtran, the Bronx's lead singer, doesn't have to shout; he can carry a tune. And the Bronx taps a side of Los Angeles that many rock bands ignore. [NY Times]
The pictures here are from Mariachi El Bronx's set at MWTX Fest's first day in Austin, TX on Friday, March 19th.

The Bronx
and their alter-egos Mariachi El Bronx start a run of three NYC-area shows with a gig at Maxwell's tonight (4/1). Tickets are still on sale.

They go on to play Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 2nd, then after a pair of out of town shows, Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday, April 6th. Tickets are still on sale for those.

Opening the shows will be Dead Country and Violent Soho, but not Japanther as previously reported ("Due to circumstantial differences").

Japanther did play at new show space Party Expo last night (3/31) with Boys Who Say No and Filthy Savage though. How was that?

Anyone know the set order? Any chance Mariachi goes on first when they do this, or is it just a matter of taking off the shirts and stowing the trumpet for the Bronx?

Julian Cope on Mac:

"I gots to tell y’all that when I heard the other day that the Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch is writing his autobiography, I nearly shat my undies laughing so hard (good job I don’t wear any!); Ian Mac write a book? A man for whom completing a single song on his own is a struggle of Everest the Hard Way proportions is hardly going to write a book. Ian, I’m speechless at your continued arrogance in the face of no evidence whatsoever. In my opinion, you’ve been a dried-up shell of a husk of a man since just after OCEAN RAIN, so don’t embarrass us all with your ludicrous claims that you’re gonna write an autobiography. Two words… No Way. Writing a book involves discipline and hard work, two things you never nailed in the past and never will. As I heard it, you even said in the press that your book will be better than the Bible. Well, in two ways it may well be like the Bible: 1) it’ll be full of half-truths and outright lies, and 2) it’ll have been written by umpteen uncredited writers and you’ll name yourself solely as its author. There you go, dumkopf, I just handed you the map: don’t even bother buying yourself a pen, son; just do what you’ve always done throughout your career; get someone else to do most of the work then claim all the credit yourself. I even have a title already: MAC USER. And with that, I shall sweep off into the Beltane sunset. Yowzah!"

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
