Mariachi El Bronx, also known as ‘that punk band that started releasing Mariachi records’, are coming to Australia with the 2012 Big Day Out festival as part of arguably the best line-up to date.
LA born and bred Mariachi El Bronx are no strangers to our lands. A mere 2 years ago we witnessed their Australian touring debut as the opening act for none other than, you guessed it, themselves (The Bronx, that is). 13 months later, Mariachi El Bronx induced a sudden influx of interstate travel when they played a one-off sold out show at The Forum as part of Melbourne Festival 2010.
Mariachi El Bronx will only be playing 2 sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne next January, so be sure to get your tickets early. Joining them on stage will be special guests, Melbourne’s The Vasco Era. May the margaritas flow!
“Going acoustic and dressing in black charro outfits is probably the punkest move they could have taken; El Bronx negotiate in exactly the same way as The Bronx – they don't. They fear nothing, explore everything and create from the rawest of emotion, making imperfections the very best bits.”—NME
